As to Mr. Soccer, his work was seen a year ago in another forum.

To answer another question, a year ago Russ was coaching a U17 girls team though recently it appears he has retired to tennis.

Any thought of at least giving this site a facelift? I'm guessing that this forum database is unique or at least old and creaky enough that it can't easily be exported to a more modern framework with some nicer features.

Although, I must say that leaving it like this will probably scare away the riff-raff. [biggrin]

I don't know Benji, the last time this site was given a facelift, everyone left!

Of course if someone would provide a big bucks sponsorship, like maybe a goalkeeping academy ...

For now, good but cheap will do.

What's vital is the preservation of the forum archives.  They are a treasure trove for coaches.

Hopefully as members find their way back, they'll get the word out to others in their soccer community about the value of this place.

The site has some built-in themes that change the look and feel but, I don't know if an aesthetic face-lift is valuable.  Its the content right?

Oh, the content is the key for sure. But as I recall, the search function kinda sucks, there are no features like "go to first unread post" or "ignore lists" and some other niceties like on other boards, the pagination is always messed up.... No deal breakers, but definite "Quality of Life" issues. I wouldn't expect them to be easy to add to proprietary bulletin board software, so I doubt it's likely (especially without those rich sponsors... of which I am not one!).

Let me take a look and see what is offered with the package we're utilizing.  A rich sponsor would be great [biggrin]

I really only used the search function for reference. It was the current speed of replies that separated this forum from others.
