Here at @wheatofc we are avid followers of Twitter. We promise we'll get better at tweeting too, but for now, here are some pearls of wisdom from our follows...


@LegendaryCoach TheGaffer
Stop chasing the approval of parents by chasing trophies and winning meaningless games, how about you actually
develop talent?

@nlevett Nick Levett
@CalumMcIntyre @legendarycoach Very true! Futsal indoors is the way forward!

@YouthFitnessGuy David Kittner
Regardless of what level of youth sports your child plays, they're still kids: physically, mentally, emotionally and  socially.

@nlevett Nick Levett
Some coaches do more running up and down than the kids! And why stand on the pitch?! Get off the pitch coaches! Let the kids play.

@nlevett Nick Levett
These are the little things coaches can control, the moment that kid crosses the white line to play, you can't control them so don't try to!

@Playworks
"Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity." -Kay Redfield Jamison #quote

@shaunbarr Problem I see a lot is adults tend to pigeon hole kids in positions. We've no idea how they are going to
develop long term.

@betterfootball
a) Messi has most unsuccessful dribbles in La Liga for 3rd year running. b) 21 goals in 19 games and won 3 ballon
d'or. Risk vs Reward!

@nlevett depressing. Had to leave under 9s after 15mins which was as much as I could stomach of opposition coach

@StanCollymore @piersmorgan In Germany, 1% of season ticket sales fund grassroots and regional Academies for developing next generation.

Chris Hodgson™ @Soccer20_Hodga
Sometimes as a coach u have to ask what THEY want, and if it creates a happy place for them then sometimes that's all that matters

@MinistryOfFooty
@jackwalton1 If there isn't more learning, enjoyment, movement & intensity in what yr doing as in 3v3 games, then do the 3v3s instead

@nlevett Nick Levett
No kid ever steps on the pitch & says, 'Today I'm going to lose.' Theyre naturally competitive. Concern yourself with performance, not score

Richard Utting @FootballMinds
RT @rufusbrevett3: Bad habits are like a comfortable bed; they are easy to get into, but hard to get out of.

Daniel Abrahams @DanAbrahams77
Winning follows mindset & style. When a footballer focuses on the process rather than the outcome he cannot lose

Richard Utting @FootballMinds
RT @danabrahams77: A winner is someone who puts winning to the back of his mind&focuses on developing the things that will make him a winner

Geordieandproud @Geordieonhol
@StanCollymore premiership chiefs should impose ban for diving cheats if caught.It would teach others not to as kids look up to these stars

Daniel Abrahams @DanAbrahams77
The enduring paradox of sport lies in the phenomenon that to win you must ignore winning as you play but play with the passion of a winner

Daniel Abrahams @DanAbrahams77
For a manager football is a team sport. For a coach football is an individual sport

Mark Carter @MinistryOfFooty
@GarethSouthgate @chrisproskills @nlevett League tables, parents on sidelines, coaches, are a hindrance to the natural learning process
