Philippines Football news
8 YEARS !
They're terrible! To make matters worse, Padernal is an arrogant coach!
Unless there's a miracle, it is safe to assume that the Philippines is going to lose to Vietnam, and may even lose to Singapore. The U19 Azkals all look like true Filipinos with Filipino names, unfortunately this performance will justify the comments of other countries that we cannot do good in soccer unless we import mestizos from Europe and Germany.
Even if we inport those mestizos from all of europe Philippines will still be a minnow in southeast asia because PFF trains players 2 months only before the competition will begin and its a fact. They are there for compliance purpose so AFC will not sanction the PFF. Hiring fil foreigners is not the only answer to these woes, its about preparation in a longer amount of time...
Preparation is not the issue! This seems to be such a massive misconception in the country when it comes to sports, that you need to have these extra long preparations prior to every tournament to be able to compete. It's wrong and stupid!!If you go strong for a month, that's more than enough prep! If you still flop, then it's about the lack of quality of the players to begin with and that is exactly the issue when it comes to Philippine football. The players are simply NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!! They lack the basic skills and technical ability. If you get this U19 team to train for a year prior to the AFF tournament, they'd still flop!! Why? Because they're simply not good enough as individuals!!
Yep. Grassroots ang kailangan. Bopis ng nagsabi na longer prep. Lol. Gusto mo taon? Overaged na sila niyan. Kaya dapat palakasin training grounds. Teach football at a young age.
Ikaw yata Bopis Anonymous14 September 2016 at 10:56 dahil sumasakay ka sa usapan ma wla ka pa lang alam. Pareho kayo ni Anonymous13 September 2016 at 23:02
Bakit sila ma overage Anonymous 14 September 2016 at 10:56? Halatang player ka lng at bata dahil pag early preparation ang sinasabi before sila nag 19 years old ay nag start na sila mag training as a team ng Philippines and maybe at U13 level sila nagsama sama. Yun naman isa sa itaas Anonymous13 September 2016 at 23:02 ay parang bitter dahil para sa kanya mga players sa U19 'NOT GOOD ENOUGH ' daw. In fairness sa kay Padernal na side meron naman skill cguro mga bata na yun kaso lng kulang talaga sa long term na training camp an although meron din silang na miss na mga bata cguro na magaling pa sa mga dinala nila sa Vietnam ngayon. Yung composition ng original na Little Azkals na nagtrain sa Italy last 2012 ay yun sana ang core dahil 18 na sila ngayong taon na to pero ano ginawa ng PFF is binalewala ito at nagkawatak watak na ang grupo. Nag start uli sa umpisa sila at nagpatryout na naman. O Kitam nyo ang trabaho ng PFF?
@Anonymous 14 September 2016 at 13:59Halatang engot ka!! Typical bs comment na sinasabihan mo yung nagcocoment na player na bitter dahil hindi kasali sa team etc. STFU!!! Mas lalong engot ka dahil naniniwala ka na kulang ang preparation at kailangan ng "long term na training". Tanga! If you're really following football, you'd know that the core of this team has been together since last year!! Halos sila sila rin yung nag compete sa AFC U19 qualifiers at AFF U19's nung 2015!! At kung talagang sinusundan mo ang football, dapat alam mo rin na yung core ng team na toh, sila sila rin yung core ng U16's nung 2013!!!So hindi kulang ang prep, kulang talaga sila sa skill, technical ability at overall 'football brain'.
Ikaw yung engot at BS at STFU guy dahil wla ka talagang alam!!! FYI , majority ng team last year ay nadala pero hindi lahat at nag train lng sila pag malapit na ang tournamnet. hindi ka pa ba naalimasmasan sa katotohna? Sabihin mo sa lahat ng national youth teams sa mundo kung hindi ba sila nagkikita bawat buwan mula U10 hanggang U19 at sabihin mo dito na nag champion sila dahil isang buwan lng sila nag training dahil puro skillfull mga players nila.
@Anonymous 15 September 2016 at 03:28Hindi na ako mag aaksaya ng oras para lang sa katulad mo. Kung gustong gusto mo talaga paniwalaan yung sinsasabi mo, bahala ka! Stay deluded all you want! But just for the record, walang youth national team sa buong mundo na nag tetrain bawat buwan buong taon! Nasa utak mong tanga lang yan! Pero, yun nga, kung yun ang paniniwala mo, bahala ka!!
Ikaw ang tanga at bobo, dahil youth ang pinag uusapan natin hindi Men'senior national team. Ipakita mo dito na wlang training ang mga youth national teams every month at maniniwala ang karamihan. Ikaw ang tanga mag research ka muna!!!
9 shots for Malaysia against 2 for Philippines. The stat says it all. It appears the team has no game plan at all, no build up play, content on playing counter and tentative with their passes. The players seems not fit - huffin' and puffin' everytime malaysia creates runs in the wings. They are content to sat back most of the game while pressure is building for them. No fire in the eyes of the Filipino players (which really irritating to the fans of football). Maybe they're just there for vacation purposes and bragging rights rather than duty and pride for our country. Btw, Malaysian team is handled by a European coach.
The Azkals U19 is the future of Philippine soccer for the next 5 to 8 yrs. World Cup 2022 qualifying will greatly depend on the Azkals U19s. Looking back,Philippine Soccer historyFirst International game. Philippines 2–1 China (Manila, Philippines; February 1, 1913)Biggest win Japan 2–15 Philippines(Tokyo, Japan; May 10, 1917)Thailand started international play in 1930s. Now we are close to the bottom of Asean soccer. Go figure.
Future of Philippine soccer? WTF!!! The best technical and thinking players are left behind because the coaching staff are betting on 'Bigger and taller players' while they come from well off family who can give 'some' financial support to mendicant coaches...
OK, The PFF took the U19 B team to Hanoi, while the A team is left in Manila. Why? because of social injustice and SIZE injustice combined with the coaches' corruption. Gee, you should submit this story to the sports editors of the Manila Times.
Abrooks its been know to all media in Manila but they won't cover much of this story because Football is not yet the number one sport in the country right now. In short it won't sell their pages but basketball do. But if you ask the football community regarding this issue i bet majority would say 'social injustice' and incompetence in the coaching staff...
There is no "U19 B team". Plain and simple, the youth national teams of the Philippines are shit!!! End of!! No need to sugar coat it by saying it's a 'B' team!
By the way you express your opinion, I hope you are either an exceptional soccer player or soccer coach. How long did you ever played soccer? Also the B team is usually part of the total player pool who normally does not go to tournaments and are basically used as practice squad.
