My youth male players were terrible students, but they could really play. Most of our players were from all different nationalities even though my club had an Italian name. Why, because if you limited yourself to one nationality on your team. It is harder to win. Played against a youth team under 19 Blackpool rovers they were an all black team. Had some great players, but their keeper was not that good. We beat them and I got to talking with their coach. He was a great player in Jamaica I remember playing against him in the CSL. I said you got a nice team, but you got to get another keeper. He said the guy was as good a keeper as they could get. I said ever think of getting a keeper of another nationality? He said no white players want to go where they practice. He was full of shit keepers are different from everyone else in general. They wil go any where to start and play for a good team. Truth was he only wanted black players on that team.
