 Football Mindset Coaching

I got round to watching last Friday's ''A View from the Terrace'' last night and was intrigued by the piece featuring John Johnstone, who describes himself as a football mindset coach. Out of curiosity, I Googled him this morning and found this:-

Who would have thought that the trail would lead to John 'Yogi' Hughes?

Teaching kids about the importance of having a growth (positive) mindset is currently a hot topic in primary schools as it's crucial in almost every walk of life, maybe even more so in football, where players are in the public eye and every aspect of their job is open to scrutiny and criticism, especially in social media.

I wonder how many top clubs have their own sports psychologist or a more specific football mindset coach?

Being a sports psychologist and mindset coach is part of a managers remit imo. If you are a great manager you would be less likely to need either of those-you need to have good people skills and an understanding of what makes individuals tick-is it a rollicking or an arm around the shoulder?

If the issues go beyond football then of course that's a different matter and professional help should be sought.

wouldn't say its mangers remit. Certainly his remit to have an awareness but very much a specialist area in terms of different techniques to be used and "intensity" of treatment. Identifying a player who could benefit from this is 100% in the managers remit.

Yeah being a good people manager and dealing with some issues relating to the individual, team and performance is part of the manager's role

Being a physciatr and changing individuals mindset, outlook and what they believe is possible over the long run is clearly a specialist role... Was it not Bradley Wiggins that used to go on about the team GB one who always went on about their inner chimp?

There's a very revealing interview with former Motherwell and Scotland player, Chris Cadden, on the sort of issues some footballers experience, which I can thoroughly recommend.

If you missed Friday's ''A View from the Terrace'' you can catch it on BBC iplayer.
