      PLEASE READ: TAMB is not closing!   10/12/2017

      Just to provide an update on the future of the Tartan Army Message Board. To be clear the board will not be closing and instead will be staying open and will hopefully go from strength to strength. Who Are We? We are a group of Scotland supporters who have varied skills and expertise, along with experience of  being involved in football and running football message boards. When we heard the TAMB faced closure, we contacted the old team with a detailed plan which involved financing and running the board. After speaking to the old team on a number of occasions they have allowed us to put our plan into action. While speaking to them and going on their experience and that of those before them, we have elected to keep our identity private, however rest assured we have the best intentions for the board and those on it. Our Plans. Our plan will involve a number of stages which we hope will not only keep the board going but help improve and rejuvenate it. Our first step will be to do a bit of a clean-up of the board. This will involve some downtime for a few hours where posting will be disabled. We plan to do this early next week, a full notice will be posted on the board then. Once that is completed we will be upgrading the current board platform, both behind the scenes and hopefully aesthetically too. There will be an ongoing process of board improvements which we hope you, the user will help us with, so you have a board you will enjoy We thank the old board team for all their hard work, dedication and their help during this handover and hope you will all help support our plans going forward.

    I did exactly the same with the parents. Told them what was expected and that if it happened during a game then I would give them one warning. A second time and I would substitute their boy. Funnily enough I've never had to carry out that threat yet ......

    Have to agree with the posts on here. Start them as young as possible. We take them in from 4 year old and it's all about getting kids enjoying playing the game and having lots of touches of the ball. My 6 year olds are now playing fun 4s tournaments and some of the shouts from the parents and coaches are ridiculous, as are the whoops and screams when a goal is scored. The ethos of the club will play a big part in how your son is developed. I know that I pull any parent up who tries to coach their son during a game. We ask parents to actively encourage by clapping or shouting well done but the coach will talk them through where they need to be on the park etc. I would suggest that you go and view a couple of clubs and look at their training sessions and view how the coaches interact with the kids, ask for their visions and aims as a club and gauge your choice from there.
