‘’If you haven’t sampled some real set back you don’t really know what it’s like as a coach. I have played in some ripping sides and played in some poor sides, I have played well and I have played poor, I have played disciplined and I have played undisciplined, I have played well and I have played injured. I have been right through that for 12years of football, and it has served me well, I hated it as a playerI wanted to be winning, winning, winning, but when I started as a coach, no player could come to me and say you don’tunderstand me, because I reckon I understood most players. ‘’ • - Mick Malthouse • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3w-0j730wM8
Disadvantages Individual thinking: Throughout their playing career it is common for athletes to become egocentric.
