Your Football Trials

Re: Your Football Trials

I was offered a spot on the Valencia Youth academy 3 years back during my yearly trip from the states to Valencia' date=' but my parents refused to allow me to stay in the states, they were offering housing as well...

Now I play on the Red Bull reserves (17 years old -_-). What a step down in class, I know :o[/quote']

I’m sorry but this is too funny not to reply

From a guy who posted loads of threads on Spanish ratings on an online fantasy game, you have suddenly morphed into an ex-“soccer wonder kid” who rejected scholarship from the precisely named “Valencia academy”

“they were offering housing as well...” - oh really, are you sure? So you mean they didn’t ask you to fly back and forth from America to Spain every morning??

Maybe you are making up a parallel story of the ENRIC ALEGRE, the American kid who did actually receive a scholarship with Valencia schoolboys team. The thing you didn’t realise was that enrico was taken in at 9, the age when academies do the most recruiting, and the age when an american kid might actually have a chance of learning to be a top flight european footballer

Another thing you need to learn is that you don’t just turn up to Valencia fc while on holiday, do a trial and get offered a place, if you were that good, scouts come to you lol

also realise, there are some things you cant get away with, even on the obscurity of the world wide web lol

I could care less if you believe me or not. I was at their summer camp thing, that if you pay X amount of money you can stay in their sporting facility for a week. They saw how I played and they offered me a spot on their youth team. And by the housing, they meant for periods when the team travels to other parts of Spain, I wouldn't have to pay for that. But again, I just wanted to clarify the situation. Sorry to have to throw at you another point, but I am quite content right now, accepted my acceptance into Princeton undergraduate program quite well, maybe my parents decision was not so bad after all. :). Again, enjoy defiling other people's lives because you have nothing in your own to be happy about.

Re: Your Football Trials

Can remember playing for Everton :eek:

and was lucky to wake up quick and find out it was all a bad nightmare i had after hearing a Bill shankly quote using my christian name , :D

"Don't worry Alan. At least you'll be able to play close to a great team!" Bill Shankly to Alan Ball after he signed for Everton.

Anyway after this i fell back to sleep and had a lovely dream ,in this i was an Alan but spelt Alun ,i scored a hatrick againsy Bayern in the Fairs cup .

How eerie it was to find a few yrs later a cerain Alun Evans bagged a hat-trick in a European Fairs Cup 4th round 1st leg tie at home to German giants Bayern Munich .

Yep just like some on this thread nothing wrong with a great imagination but need to be able to seperate reality from dreamword now and then .;):)

since when did truth seeking become "defiling other people's lives"? if you think before you post, people wont have to "defile" your life. +you ve taken things too personally lol no offense intended mate

most forumners will tell you that i am a helpful and reasonable contributor on this forum, i dont want to "defile" your life lol i simply replied to your post because your original post shows that you dont actually understand the complicated processes of the european scouting system and academies.

plus, i think you did clarify things up a bit. what you are effectively saying is that you paid for the summer camp, and have the valencia youth team coaches train you, which believe it or not, is NOT the same as being accepted into the valencia youth team lol

ps. "the summer camp thing"--you are very precise arent you lol

Again Wrong.

I went to a camp to essentially be trained by their youth players. After the trainers took a look after a week about how I PLAYED they studied my situation. And offered me a SPOT in their ACTUAL youth team. So originally I was paying for a little camp thing, but eventually because I was a good player they offered me to actually become part of the youth team.

Again more clarification is needed. B)

ok in that case you must have been a very very good player, especially considering you spent most of the time learning the game in america.

Re: Your Football Trials

I am fairly sure my game hasn't progressed compared to what it would have if...:(

i was not trying to "defile" anyone's life, im really sorry if i caused any offense, maybe i underestimated the american youth soccer system.....

see i played for my secondary school 1st team right up to sixth form, which was as high a level as i ever played, i never went to any trials etc, because i wasnt good enough lol

but i played with some absolutely fantastic players. Half of the 6th form 1st 11 i played with also played for the Plymouth or exeter youth teams....and one particular bald kid who i remember particularly well (he had cancer) played for the northern ireland school boys team...

through playing with these great lads, i realised how hard it is to to train yourself good enough to play at the level you talked about, which was why i was a little skeptical...........i was not trying to offend anyone, i was just being a realist, i can see that the odds are heavily stacked against a 14 year old american kid getting a scholarship from the valencia academy, that s all
