I’m dead serious!
The majority of you likely joined us after the U11 video. That means the chunk of posts you’ve seen since, have been about kids playing soccer and our trip to Spain. So cute youth soccer stuff.
Well, you’re in for a big ass shock if you think that’s what this site’s about.
You’re not going to be getting little heart-warming stories about kids playing this game, and silly “youth soccer development logic”, or the mindless parroting of what perceived US Soccer authorities say.
Not at all!
You know what you’re likely to get here instead?
Consistent slaps of cold hard truth across your face. Yep, that sounds about right.
You’ve decided to subscribe to a site that’s unlike anything in the country. First and foremost, the things that are written here don’t come from reporters or “fans” of the game who for whatever reason chose to write about the sport.

You know why?
This is threatening because you will be challenged at the core of your beliefs. And that’s going to make you angry. Insulted even.
So there it is guys
Think you can handle this?
Think you can lower your defensive barriers?
Think you can make a concerted effort to not rationalize things so that your worldview remains intact?
You sure you want to stick around?
Now’s your chance to jump ship and continue living in your comfortable soccer pigeonhole.
Oh and before I forget and you conveniently label all this as X or Y, I don’t do this for shock value. This is what’s in my belly when talking about the sport!
So if you’ve made it this far, here’s another crucial takeaway in regards to soccer development at all levels:
