    Olympic will probably score the most goals this year but are going to find it tough against well drilled defences like Magic or Jaffas.

    Top 4 this year in 13's for mine:
    Magic - Jaffas - Olympic - MNC
    They paly with a fast striker and wingers and kick it long? They will never compete with the top teams if thats the coaching they are getting which makes a bit of sense as I saw the old Topor Stanley kick off last night from the Jets bad old days and if the ball is not in our half they cant score. Who is the TD and coach there now?

    No,they attacked the spaces in behind teams that played high with effective through balls,not long ball.They moved the ball well and controlled possession when I watched them.They are coached well.

    Doesnt surprise me.Both those blokes JDL teams were always 2 of the better teams to watch.The fact they are now working together is a fantastic opportunity for the kids who are playing for them.

    When is the Youth going to change format?

    The top 4 or 5 teams arent being challenged for more than half of their games. Winning by more than 6 every week is a joke.

    It's not a bad plan A but there needs to be B, C, D as well.

    tbh the edgy 13s are going better than thought after a couple of better players jumped ship last year. Although they havent played the top teams yet.

    I thought Charlie had better youth. Maybe an off weekend.
    Can I be a parent who is a clubman? Or must
    I be one or other?

    Edgy are doing great in all grades. From where we were to where we are trust me things are getting better. Check every grade, kids playing up an age, kids getting better. Ainít about results. About the future.

    Is there a emoji for me ripping off my shirt and bashing me chest?

    Magic 14s 4... Olympic 0... been a while since someone dusted Olympic in all Youth grades...

    Over the 4 games Olympic got more red cards than goals scored, wonder what Sportsbet was paying for that.

    Bumped into friend of mine at Speers Point last night who has a boy in JDL at Olympic and talk is the 13s coaches ruined the 13s last year and the club wont change it as they have ties to the club. They are now ruining this years 13s and club ignoring it and he reckons Olympic wont run top 4 in 13s this year either. The chat made sense to me after seeing a bit the other night and I wont go into full detail as he is too close to the source but siad they are losing kids from some grades already due to coaching.

    I was at speers point and it wasn’t the result that was the most shocking. Olympic had no style of play whatsoever except hoof it and try to win the scraps. Magic were dropping back to half way to encourage them to play football but they still refused to even entertain the idea. These are talented kids so it’s not like they don’t have the ability

    Olympic probably struggling now they donít have the NET lifeline that used to send the better kids there. And itís getting expensive to play JDL and NPL so the commission house kids take up footy and cheaper sports. Not being smart but letís be honest Football is a rich manís sport these days. The better your kid is the more expensive it is to play and the worse the coaching gets from what Iím seeing.

    Geez, Trumpy in with the truth bombs. I dont think Olympic are in too much bother but improvements do need to be made.

    As for coaches, it seems that the more coaching tickets we hand out the more confusing the curriculum becomes to coach.

    Housos have always played footy so no change there.

    You think people are going to go around telling people they are getting a free ride, because they can't afford to pay, or have specialised payment plans? Just because YOU don't know about it, doesn't mean it doesn't happen.
    What are you on about ya gala, payment plan or not itís expensive.

    Everyone says its about playing up when results aren't going their way. But both Maitland and Magic (I believe Magic has a 14 year old in their 18's as well) have kids playing up across the board and haven't fallen off the table. I think magic seems to have improved this year from last as well from what I can see so far in a couple of age groups.
    Personally I don't have a problem with kids playing up if they are good enough.
    It should always be the best against the best.
    As for a 14 yr old playing 18's, the kid must be an exceptional talent or the quality of the 15 & 16's yr olds at that club are poor.
    If the kids talent warrants playing 4 yrs up, WHY isn't he in the Jets program?

    Only players turning 15 or above in the calendar year allowed to play up in 18s or above. It was 16 year olds until Jets academy caught out not complying so they changed it a few years ago. So kid can only be playing maximum of 3 years up.
