    This thing is spreading. This is the first time I will be in self quarantine. May work from home next week as several cases have been reported where I live (Toronto, ON).

    I have started having my core players do fitness training ahead of the upcoming outdoor season. I will be monitoring some of them remotely through FaceTime periodic check ins in order to prevent contamination.

    what measures have you all done? Hope everyone is staying safe. There are no soccer games no liga nos games.

    I believe they should cancel
    The remainder of the season and award to title to Sporting out of pity.

    I hope you have the parents permission to facetime the little boys in your unpaid volunteer position

    Do not facetime bud, email all your players and CC the parents, otherwise you could get yourself into alot of trouble bud.

    You guys disgust me.
    I’ll have you know that although I am divorced, I have done reasonably well for myself with the ladies. The parents are aware of my coaching methods.

    I just started dating a Colombian girl 8 years younger than me. She likes soccer and is a big fan of Cristiano. I go for quality over quantity. I will post a photo soon.

    Tough look when you call her a Colombian "girl" and is 8 years younger. All the little girls are big fans of Ronaldo.

    Stay safe everyone. This CoronaVirus isn't a joke. Go look at the Bergamo, Italy obituaries section. Stay home and flatten the curve.

    I work for my local council at the special needs schools and the schools are staying open which is very worrying for every one who has to work, every day after work I go to the shops and the selfs are empty. Have to wait for day off so to wait out side shop with over 500 or so waiting for the doors to open, need to feed my kids

    I feel bad for you, but working with children is a joy. Let me
    Know if you discover any potential football talents.

    How is everyone doing? This shit is insane, all my friends list their job, thankfully I saved money, didn't do travelling.

    2020 is definitely a tricky year. No fear tho, can't let that sink in your brain!

    I’ve been laid off. I’ve applied for the Canadian benefit for individuals laid off as a result of covid 19.

    it’s been hard and I won’t be able to cover this months rent (my ex wife kept the house we used to live in). I also have to pay some spousal support and won’t be able to do that either. I am trying to sell some of my scout reports to contacts in Portugal, but I’ve already depleted most of my inventory. I can’t book anymore trips to conduct further scouting. I already spent what little I had left to go on my most recent trip .

    I’ve been drinking a lot and having dark throughts.

    Been rewatching some of our old world Cup and euro runs. I work for an essential service but am not yet eligible for daycare, so I'm here with my kids, 4 and 2

    Joe, you think when this is done I can sign them up for one of your team's?

    ive also been watching previous videos. The other day I watched portugal vs England from euro 2000. Rui Costa was incredible that day. July 10, 2016 was the greatest day of my life along with the birth of my daughter.

    When your kids are a little older you can contact me, youngest I coach is usually U12. This summer we will likely have to shut down.

    Last night they replayed the euro 2016 final on local television. I watched it again. Williams performance was immaculate. I cannot believe some still do not rate him.

    Moved on to some other teams, FIFA started trying to get some hashtag trending about watching old games at home. So they're uploading high quality rips of old games like Spain Portugal 2018 and Brazil France 2006

    Not surprising , it was a big disappointment although the 4-0 win over Poland was nice.

    2006 was a good run, we beat some good sides such as England , Netherlands , Mexico . We gave France a tough fight as well.

    too bad we tend to underwhelm in most
    Other World Cup competitions.
