The season goes from disaster to disaster, not least the lack of a win still!  Performances are better, and maybe tonight we get one as we play one of the local teams (we seem to get the leftovers after some other nearby locations take the kids who take it seriously).

Anyway, a fair chunk of training sessions have been cancelled as the pitch is on a flood plain.  Last night, after two days of no rain, it is good to go.  All sessions cancelled due to an active shooter escaping the police in Atlanta.

I know!

Not only did my shocking record get overlooked when being offered the chance to take on the Under 16's (my son moved up an age group), but they asked if I could stick with the Under 14's as well.  Turns out I am not the worst coach either - one of the new mums asked if I thought we'd score a goal this season, seems her sons team didn't even manage that in their games (it's only 10 games - Spring season and then Autumn, they die if they play in Summer).

Funny you should say that, another parent did indeed call out that they were very happy to have me as coach because I was English so must know what I was talking about.
