  1. Laws , Laws, Laws and yet more Laws

    For what it's worth my view is that local sessions can play to whatever rules they wish be it over head height, 3 touch or whatever but tournaments need to have one set of rules and if the WFA and FA can get together and agree a set of rules then great. Nobody is going to agree on every rule as is clear from the contributors on this forum but the growing game needs consistent rules for competitions. Regardless of what rules are decided upon can we just remember that it is WALKING football.
  2. Bagsy not Goalie

    Yes Alan maybe the FA could add an Over 50s section in the Peoples Cup as well as the walking football. I've avoided the Peoples Cup thus far due to the reports of prevalent running but may give it a go in 2018.
  3. ask john croot Playing for the National team

    I did try and nominate myself and was advised your team manager or club secretary have to nominate you. Just putting it out there in case anyone else was thinking of nominating themselves.
  4. England Trials

    I think this is a repeat of last year's competition where the winners from England, Scotland and Wales played each other with Herne Bay representing England and winning.. This year Birmingham will be travelling to Wales as the English winners but I believe the Scottish winners are not taking part so I don't think it is the first England international game. I believe trials will be arranged early in the New Year but I am sure those in the know will confirm if this is correct.

  10. Couldn't run

    Played last night in my new team Haddenham's first ever friendly. Our opponents told us they played to the FA rules and it quickly became apparent their interpretation involved lots of running, slide tackles and contact (nothing over the top or malicious it must be said). After 5 minutes of us literally being over-run and good goalkeeping and poor finishing we conceded a goal. At this point our team organiser said to us that we needed to play the same way or we'd get slaughtered. So we upped the pace and lost a good game of normal football 2-1 but this was not walking football at all. The weird thing was that even when I was told I could run I couldn't do it. I can physically run, but 3 years of playing walking football without running was so engrained that I continued to play as normal at a walk. It was a shame as a couple of our older players who contribute greatly to our weekly sessions hardly got a look in as the pace of the game was too much for them. It was proof that we need to split the game and have separate walking and normal (?) football for over 50's and 60's.
  11. ask john croot Playing for the National team

    I may be wrong, but can players only be nominated from teams affiliated to the WFA? Asking for a friend.

  14. ask john croot Playing for the National team

    Not a Brum and my tongue is very firmly in my cheek. I cannot see that the England team is necessarily going to have the best players as I cannot imagine a quality player from Devon, for example, is going to want to travel to Birmingham or Romford for a trial but fair play if they do.
  15. ask john croot Playing for the National team

    Just a thought, but would it make sense for Birmingham just to represent England and not bother with trials. They play together every week, the England manager is their manager, the England coach is their Captain and the WFA Player of the Tournament is their striker. There are probably hundreds of players around the country, who haven't been 'nominated', at a similar level and picking 10 who won't know each other and will only get together on rare occasions doesn't seem ideal to me.
