The FA philosophy of developing players that can make their own decisions and learn from their mistakes is promoted. So no robot instructions from the sidelines constantly guiding the players or putting pressure on them by criticising their mistakes. You learn through trying and experimenting. It could be that your telling them to do one thing and the coach the opposite - it will be confusing for the player. Just positive praise and encouragement to be the best that they can be. Development of a player should be a long term view. Phrases like "Get Rid!", "Boot it!", "Don't try and do too much", are a thing of the past. The Future player is confident on the ball, keeps possession of the ball, makes their own decisions and can take on players. Above all - enjoy the game and thanks for your support.
