    I'd say so, yes. The increase in investment over recent years has seen quality levels improve significantly.

    One area which is tricky is goalkeeping, which with a couple of exceptions is generally dire. For me, the solution would be to make the goals a bit smaller, but this creates a whole set of other questions and issues.

    I coached juniors for 10 years, at 6-12, plenty of girls are as good as boys, many good enough to stand out in the boys teams at the lower age levels. Once they are removed, either by age level or coach/parental concerns, their development slows rapidly, that's my experience.

    I don't know of any mixed leagues but can't see why there shouldn't be some up to U18?

    "Hennessey denied the charge and said any resemblance to the Nazi gesture was "absolutely coincidental"."


    It said the FA was "entirely justified" in bringing the case but that "rather than giving a Nazi salute, we think it more likely that Mr Hennessey was, as he says, trying to shout at and to catch the attention of the waiter."

    Far more likely. Absolutely. No question. Nothing to see here....move on....

    Even more worrying is that 'two members of the three-man panel believed the photograph had been "misinterpreted" and the other said the "only plausible explanation" was that Hennessey made the salute.'

    Brighton on a dire run of form, playing dire negative football, have a possibly make or break game tonight against fellow strugglers, Cardiff.

    I'm ambivalent about relegation. I think I prefer more adventurous competitive football in the Championship than trying to scrape a draw against 'better' clubs and trying to beat our peers, one nil.

    I agree

    Once the novelty of the first few seasons in the Prem has worn off there is very little fun for the general fan in watching their team trying to finish 4th from bottom every year.

    A team like Brighton, Cardiff and 8 or 9 other teams have only one goal at the start of the season and that is to secure the magical 40 points.

    United, pretty in pink in Barcelona tonight.

    But they didn't. Barca are humiliating them and the Thursday cup beckons for the pink boys next season.

    Men and boys out there last night. In relation to their past successes Man U are turning into a very ordinary side, and according to recent reports the stadium is deteriorating at the same rate.
