By the way, on the crazy parent problem, you hear stuff mentioned like games where they keep score for under 6's. Does anyone know if soccer in this country really has games where they keep score for under 6's?
Yes as 10 year olds you teach them the basic skills and get them playing football but as teams progress and age you need some sort of a system. Spain, Belguim have shown that. Obviously you need to adapt for every game but if players are used to playing in a certain style then it can only be of benefit.

I do not about under 6's but certainly there are competitive U-10, U-11 games etc.
