It’s game day and the players are restless all day long. In most cases it’s because the day seems so long especially when it ends with a soccer game. The game is not foremost on their minds so there is no need to get all worked up so early about it. In fact, when the game actually approaches it will seem like the next day. So much will have taken place from morning until the pre-game meal.
Everywhere I go and whenever I talk to coaches and administrators across the country I always seem to hear the same complaints about the state of soccer in this country and for some strange reason, the brunt of the complaints are directed at both the National and Provincial Associations.
