In my son’s last football match, I thought it would be interesting to see how many times I heard the term ‘get rid of it’ or something along those lines and count them.
I heard the term mentioned 38 times!!
And that was with me going to the bar in between so it could have been more.
And I have been told grassroots football has improved over the years? Still waiting to see the evidence of it.
Besides the fact that the FA has introduced various campaigns to restrict the involvement of parents during matches, nothing much has changed.
So, what is the answer you might be thinking?
