    I haven't heard of it before, but as you say it does look decent! I'll see if I can find someone who knows something about it.

    Was wondering if you had heard of http://hdray.com/ before? I was in Vegas a few weeks back and saw a guy selling these in one of the malls.

    Seemed like a decent piece of kit and easy to use but wanted to check out some reviews when I got back to the UK before committing. I am struggling to find anything on this company.

    I am looking at binning off my Sky and want something that is inexpensive but will let me watch the football on my TV.

    Part 2: For jobs, he can have a look at the NCAA Career site and search specifically for 'soccer'. Link here: http://ncaamarket.ncaa.org/jobs/ Most of the positions are for university-level soccer, which he would have a hard time breaking into, but private clubs advertise there too. I just did a search and there are quite a few there now. One thing that he'll want to decide is which part of the country he'd like to be in. This place is big. Once he narrows that down, he can do specific searches of the youth clubs in those areas. Here is a directory where you can search for clubs by region: http://www.usyouthsoccer.org/aboutus/FindaClub/
    The way most clubs work here is that the parents pay a (pretty steep) fee for their kid to be in the club, and this goes to the coaches and directors' salaries. It can be hard to break into in some regions, while others are crying out for experienced coaches. He'll just have to be persistent and do a lot of searching.

    There are two different bodies that license coaches in the US: The NSCAA and the USSF. The USSF badges are more expensive and more challenging (there is a playing skill test involved, though it isn't terribly difficult), but NSCAA badges are perfectly acceptable too, the courses are held more frequently, and they're more affordable. Link to NSCAA courses: http://www.nscaa.com/education/courses/master-schedule
    Link to USSF: http://www.ussoccer.com/coaches/licenses.aspx
    There is lots of good information on both of those sites.
    He may not need to bother with either if he has Italian FA badges or similar.
    English probably won't be too big a problem as far as coaching - as it's a relatively limited vocabularly anyway (pass, move, step, shift etc) and if he does come over, the immersion will improve him quickly.

    Firstly,Ive got to thank you for agreeing to help him, it will mean a hell of a lot to him, him being Andrea Melis of Villaputzu, Sardegna. He's currently coaching the junior squads from my village, San Vito. His first question to me was concerning the Fifa coaching standards in the US. Have you a blanket system that covers the whole country,or does it differ, state to state? I always thought that Fifa's European standard covered Europe,but evidently not, with Italian being different to the Spanish and German, and English FA diverse to them all. He illustrated that with the small game as he called it, 5 versus 5 with one keeper, or 3 versus 3 with bigger goals and 2 keepers. Second question, probably a no brainer, will he get anywhere with only schoolboy English?
    And the third and last for today, could you recommend any sites, local or national, that he would be able to study to find out for himself. Any and all pointers will be greatly appreciated and thanks again for your help.

    Hello there. I've got a bit of an odd request for an Italian friend who is looking for football coaching work in the states. He's got his badges for all age groups up to 18, and is currently studying for his senior qualifications but needs some help regarding the system over there. Question is, would you be able to find some time to reply to his questions over a period of time? Just don't want to pile a load on you if your time is occupied. Thanks in anticipation.

    Yeah I know. Nixon could do anything, really, but the problem was he always gave it away because he just blabbed freely about everything he did, since he genuinely seemed to believe that he was allowed to do everything.

    You know I was only pulling your wire re watergate, I hope. Although I still do maintain Nixon could do a break in on the low down.
