|Youth football - yellow/red cards?|
at 15:10 31 May 2019
in youth football in the UK, do refs hand out cards at U9 or U10 level? My U9 team played in the week - a 3-1 away win since you were wondering - and the opposing coach did not care for our hustling, pressing style of football. He was chirping all game about our alleged fouls and then lost his s5it completely when his own kid got fouled right in front of the benches. He jumped up and was demanding a yellow card. it was absolutely a foul, clumsy not malicious, the ref gave a free-kick and that's where it should have ended. But this guy spent the rest of the game screaming for cards to be shown. Can't wait for the rematch in the last game of the season!

Saw a tweet from Bradford City listing the names and ages of the victims.
The elderly couple, Fred (76) and Edith (79).
The dad and his two kids, Trevor (38), Jayne (16), and Craig (14)
The grandfather, father and son, Edmund (63), John (34), Andrew (11)
And on it goes, dads and their lads, lifelong fans... just heartbreaking beyond belief. A reminder that the mid to late 80s were a terrible time for football
|Is football the only sport that stirs such emotion?|

Bloke I coach with - a fellow Brit, Birkenhead-raised, full-on Red - arrived at our footy practice tonight (after he’d bunked off work to watch the game) with tears rolling down his face. He’d just got off the phone to his dad back in England, the emotion of the game getting to both of them. Football, bloody hell.
