Does Coaching From The Sidelines Help?

A coach should be judged on their long-term performance, not just results. Manchester United recently won the U18 title, but their U23 team was relegated. There are many U23 players on loan at other teams or even in the Manchester United first team.

Well done, Switzerland.

The Difference Between Winning And Losing

“Winning isn’t everything, but neither is losing.” There is a great deal that can be taken from this, but the main point is that our focus should be on what we are capable of, and we can often learn more and grow more from a loss than a win. If we continue to improve, work hard, and make our best better, we will eventually be unbeatable, and there will be a lot of winning along the way.
