Just a small post, adding some resources as part of the blog and one of the biggest concerns in football across the board is the lack of structure and procedure in relation to concussion. A physio that was at my previous club considered this source to be one of the most useful in terms of education for the sidelines. Please see the resources section of the blog to see what else is added to the blog.

An image tells some stories

Hello Folks.

A nice addition to the blog is some imagery, my dear and lovely friend Kelly, who is a freelance photographer, has kindly agreed to offer up some of her magnificent work for you to enjoy. At the moment she will supply us with stadium visits, perhaps expanding on this at some point.

Please head over to her twitter to get a further visual on her well documented work. Or have a look below.

We also did a Q&A with her a while back.


World Football Academy

Another site link on the cards today, at the moment I appear to be suffering from a case of insomnia so as a result I will be spending some time writing some lovely words promoting the work of the great Raymond Verheijen and the concept of periodisation. The site that he leads offers lessons on various different aspects of fitness wether it be logical or practical usually in 60 minute nuggets, I highly recommend you research some of his stuff. Select the link below.



The Football Romantics

Recently discovered a web site that is just wonderful, designed for the football romantic it consists of so many different items that are out of the ordinary, basedin scotlands capital I recommend a visit if you enjoy the non mainstream footballing text pay a visit to

The Gaming Industry

A small post this evening,

Twitter can be a powerful tool, it has fueled the development of the wonderful blog that I write to you from today – I recommend getting yourself online before things go south and it becomes the next Bebo…

Anyway, on to things a little more serious. I discovered a recent and quite beautifully designed blog by @EllexMay who expressed herself through said blog and links it up through the aforementioned twitter handle . A big percentage of this is based on gaming and what she invests her time in enjoying. Which in itself is an important subject of course.

The most important part is that she expresses herself in terms of health with some advice on how to manage and deal with this. The challenge of sharing this information with the net can be difficult and its something to be admired. So we wanted to ensure support was there if needed.

Please head over to and have a look over some of the blogs that have taken place.

This fine work will of course be added to the ever expanding links section.

Enjoy 🙂

Spanish Magic

Good evening.
Some promotional writing in mind, a great and dear Spanish friend has developed a website where coaching is the centralised theme, presenting something fresh and different to coaching. The wix related product offers up a resource of drills and some text as inspiration and motivation to any coach that wishes to add a different feel to his/her coaching style. They propose a different methodological point of view as well to develop not only the players’ ability but also to give coaches a different and fresh point of view.

The product is fresh out the wrapper so a work in progress, but rest assured the quality available will be excellent.
Or give the lads a follow on twitter and facebook through @SonrisadGol
