    Default ~Youth team in Germany

    The official Site claimed they would give us regular updates, not heard anything.

    Any idea how they did?

    we lost our first two group games to Freiburg ( lost 2-0 ) and Red Bull Salzburg ( lost 2-1 ), but those two ended up in the final so no disgrace losing to them imo, we won our final group game against Kaiserslauten 1-0 to put us into the 5th/6th playoff game against Young Boys Bern which we lost 2-1

    6th out of 8... Our team only had two under 19s tbf and the rest were made up of under 18s. So for an under 19s tournament that's not too bad!

    To be honest we had no chance of winning, the trip was about getting the young lads playing against players from a slightly higher age group and perhaps a slightly higher standard.

    Such trips can only be an absolute positive form their development, and something we should be encouraging. Plus it gets them on an "away" trip too!

    Such things are indicative of a new approach for our youth sides, one we will hopefully reap the benefits of in years to come.

    Gave away too many penalty's, obviously the games were fixed.

    yep, this last couple of years we've been using much younger players in all our setups. Partly because we scrapped the reserves and then had to start again from scratch. But also that game against norwich in the youth cup their average age was 18-19 ours was about 16. They're looking good and i'm sure that trip will have helped them laods.

    Freiburg have the best youth set up in Germany by all accounts, so no shame in a narrow defeat really. Credit to the club for challenging the players.

    In his defence, he IS doing the comedy "sticky up fingers behind the head of the bloke in front for the purposes of making him look like he's got antennae growing out of his head" thing.

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    I'd have your eyesight checked!

    Thank you for this link. REALLY interesting read. Wish the FA would pull their finger out and adopt the Germans model

    It's mostly down to numbers of coaches - go and look up how many top-level coaches there are in Germany, compared to England.

    The difference is embarrassing, and one reason why the grass-roots of German football is so much better than here.

    It makes sense overloading youth training with highly qualified coaches.

    The number of highly qualified coaches in the English setup compared to the German setup is pitiful
