I know young players have to learn and that results arenÂt the be-all and end-all at this point in their careers; however, surely they should be asked to give a performance that results in a victory?
Good habits breed good players and a winning mentality surely starts at an early stage of their development, to lower the bar and ask only for performance apart from on specific occasions seems odd to me, but perhaps IÂm being a little harsh.
