Tulsa Soccer Camps | Talking About Romania

Hi and welcome to pride soccer training. Um, this our podcast where we talk about all things soccer related. Um, we, uh, recently I’ve been studying different things and I’m about to go do my b license and it’s gonna be a good challenge for me. Tulsa Soccer Camps, I’m excited about it and excited about learning more humbling myself. I’m really listening to what other people have to say about their concepts or principles. I’m helping me be a better coach and I’m the thing that I’m excited about too because it’s, it’s going to cause me to figure out how I want to play the game and how I want to teach players who play for me how to play in this fashion. And so I thoroughly enjoyed the nineties. I’m watching soccer in the nineties, was wonderful and one of the teams that I, that I always loved watching was um, Romania.

And that’s where my favorite player. How’d you came from? Something I didn’t realize until recently was that Craig had a big influence on Haji. And I think because of that, an indirect influence on how Romania played, how, Tulsa Soccer Camps, these kids that were on that team with the players that were on that team, um, how they saw the game, they were very fluid and then moved into different pockets of the field. How’d you can be found anywhere on the field, on the wing, left wing or right wing, up top in the middle, sometimes even dropping into the defense and he would just hover around all over the field. And I love seeing him do that. And, and what made me more fascinated than even seeing him do that with how his teammates allowed him to do, how they moved around space, um, in order to facilitate what he was doing.

And um, I just, I find that that to me is the most attractive way to play the game is a fluid, a fluid, very dynamic way of playing and attacking. And I want my teams to play that way. I wanted them to, to a soak up pressure and then keep the ball and then move the bowl into pockets of the field where the other team is not. And so those are the things that I find very impressive about. I’m watching Romania in those days. There. Coach I felt was a brilliant tactician. He always had an idea or how to undo the other team. How about cause problems for them. And you know, in 90 World Cup Romania played, I think it was camera ruin. I put Russia one time and Argentina and they played all these teams and it was very, very difficult bracket to make it out of.

But they made it out. I think Kim won the bracket, I think Romania may have gotten second and somehow I’m Argentina squeeze through and so, um, that made it onto play a Ireland and lost in penalty kicks. But they played a good game. Both teams were good and uh, Romania lost in penalty kicks. And I watched how Haji approached the game. He was very, very fluid, very dynamic, very attack minded. And I really enjoyed watching him play, Tulsa Soccer Camps, in that area. And um, you know, the other thing that I enjoyed to was, um, I’m watching him in the nineties where they probably the [inaudible] 94 World Cup us where they’re at, their best appearance was,


way to the quarter finals quarter finals of the World Cup. And I think they could have won the World Cup if they had gone on, if they beat Sweden. But they had some brilliant performances where they beat Columbia. They beat the US, they beat, Tulsa Soccer Camps, gosh, they’d beat a team. I just drew a blank there. But they, uh, they were being, oh, Argentina and the, uh, second round. And they went onto the, to the quarter finals to play Sweden where they lost in pks. So every game they were in it, there’s only one game. They got blown out, 41, it was against Switzerland and they got a little bit overconfident in their ability. Ninety eight World Cup. They got to the, to uh, the, uh, it was a second round and I played Croatian last show that was the best Croatian team with the exception of this last year where they went to the finals.

And so, um, I found Croatia, this World Cup too, had a similar concept as similar principle of playing the game, of moving the ball and I really enjoyed how they played it and watched. I’m watching how they move the ball. So I want my teams to adopt that same principle and you know, in order to do so, I have to start the smallest stages of the game and build out into the bigger stages. And it comes with giving players freedom, freedom to create freedom to, to dribble, and in order to give them freedom, I must work on their technical ability and their decision making skills. Those things go hand in hand. So it was, claire has good technical ability and good decision making skills. They can be a very good player. And Tulsa Soccer Camps, no, I, I think that’s what impresses me about the team that my son plays on.

They have a very dynamic and fluid approach to playing the game. They are all technically gifted and they all are very good at making decisions. Um, and so I’m excited to watch how things progress, how players develop. Um, you know, I want to see, I want to see how things unfold throughout the years and um, I want to watch the game and watch them play at a different level and enjoy that. Tulsa Soccer Camps, I think that I’m seeing kids with that type of technical ability and decision making. It brings joy. I don’t know if coach has really recognized the amount of joy that they bring to parents, to other coaches, to other family members, to friends when they can create a game that is beautiful to watch and it encourages hope. It encourages imagination and it encourages so many things that are intangible and, you know, I just, I’m always impressed with how, um, how those things go and how we have an effect on the people around us for such a simple sport.

Such a, the game when, you know, when you look at it, it’s all just a game. It’s like a board game, but we’re out there playing his emotions. There’s so many different parts of the game that I just, I just love it. I love how it teaches life lessons. Um, I love that every day I’m out there in the field, I say something, I’m like, oh, I have to do that. Oh, I have to make sure I apply that to my life. And Tulsa Soccer Camps, it’s just a constant evolving concept, you know, always looking for a new idea, always looking for a new approach, always looking for a dynamic way to play. And uh, you know, last night I was, I saw some footage of the, uh, us, uh, under 16 women’s national team play and they were beautiful to watch. I mean, they were moving into space.

I’m drawing people out. Uh, it was just how they created that concept was just beautiful to see and that’s what I’m always trying to do is to create something that’s beautiful and fun. And uh, after that, every day I want to see it and when I see dynamic soccer being played by these, by these different, these young kids and seeing them move the ball and enjoy the game and I’m just totally amazed by what they can do. And I’m very appreciative to have of what they’re doing out there in the field. So, you know, I don’t take it lightly that a coach has an idea, this is the part that gets me a, I’m the highest a coach can have an idea about how to play, how to do something, and then how to take that and turn it into something tangible. Like I didn’t take an idea of total football people moving into different positions and changing shape and how to make that happen on paper, how to make that happen on paper and then take it from paper and teach it to people.

So they will do it naturally, dynamically on their own thinking for themselves. I think that is an amazing way. And, and, and things and that, and this happens all the time. This happens in science that happens in an arts. It’s, you know, I’m just really amazed at how all of this works. And so, Tulsa Soccer Camps, I just think it’s, it’s, it’s an incredible situation and I just can’t get my mind around it all the way together, but just love it. So thanks for listening to our podcast today. Thank you for. I’m enjoying spending time listening to pride soccer training podcast. Good day.
