Worst Hustlers University Graduate EVER
Where’s the “Arteta pull” here?
Lewis-Skelly is a huge coup IMO. I'm not sure where Nwaneri is gonna end up but it needs to be the right decision on the pitch as well as off it.We did realy well to keep Myles Lewis-Skelly, let's see if Nwaneri stays.
Chelsea do have a history of offering amazing deals to not just the player but also his parents and agents to get these deals over the line so there's a good chance he goes but let's see.
Parents might not be out there intentionally sabotaging their kid’s future but I can think of more than a couple parents who’ve done more harm than good, advising their athletically elite children. One recent example…Guys - we can't be mad about this - we've signed plenty of teens the same way. Some worked out (Cesc) and some have not. Can't change fate.
I believe in Parent's rights. Outsiders or Government should not interfere.
Parent's aren't out there intentionally sabotaging their own child's future. I believe whether he leaves or stays...if he has a good head on his shoulder and works hard, he'll be successful. The cream rises to the top remember.
As I mentioned, cream rises to the top. If Bates was any good, none of that would have mattered. Mentality cant be trained by others...you either have it or you don't.Parents might not be out there intentionally sabotaging their kid’s future but I can think of more than a couple parents who’ve done more harm than good, advising their athletically elite children.

3.5 years ago, a 15 year old high school basketball player named Emoni Bates graced the cover of Sports Illustrated. The cover story proclaimed him the next Micheal Jordan/LeBron James. He was considered the sure fire #1 NBA draft pick in 2022. It didn’t quite work out. This past Thursday was the 2023 NBA Draft and Bates was selected 49th out of 58 picks. What happened?
In a word, DAD happened. Mr Bates thought he was smarter than everyone, including Hall of Fame college basketball coaches. Instead of sending his son to one of the many basketball factories that masquerade as prep schools, Mr Bates started his own prep school. Instead of having his son play on any one of the many established AAU summer basketball teams, pops started his own team. So instead of getting outside coaching, instead of getting the kid outside his comfort zone, his dad built teams around Emoni. Nobody challenged the kid. He stopped improving, didn’t put in the hard and necessary work to make himself better. Didn’t build strength and work on his weaknesses. His father didn’t want him to get hurt and lose his meal ticket. Meanwhile, all the other players were getting better.
So a guy that EVERYONE thought was the next GOAT turned out to be a bust. Had his dad not thought he was smarter than everyone else, Bates could be going into his second season as an NBA player with a large contract. Instead, he has zero guarantee he’ll be on an NBA roster for the upcoming season. He can thank his pops for that.
Unless you have a good teacher, in which case they make a massive difference, which is true from Primary to Post Grad. Not so much for a Doctorate, but by then you are likely mid 20s and already pretty well set up for self-learning if you've gone through the prior stages.As I mentioned, cream rises to the top. If Bates was any good, none of that would have mattered. Mentality cant be trained by others...you either have it or you don't.
Honestly like school....the older you get, you realize your learning from books and not the teacher.
