The Knight in the Area episode 11

Alright, once is possible, twice is a bother but three or four times where the download turns out to be wrong in two weeks is simply unacceptable. I understand that it’s a free service that they are offering, but their reputation will only get worse if they continue to “troll” people like this.

Anyway, after having waited another day for the correct subtitles, we once again enter a world were soccer is everything.  Everyone seems to have accepted Nana-chan and her other club, that’s very good. There was no reason to hold it against her. It’s up to her if she wants to play for another club or not. I’m glad that she has finally found her way.

Meanwhile Kakeru’s club isn’t doing very well. There seems to be a lot of agro between players of the “fun club” and the “serious club”. They are all getting fed up with Araki and his attitude, and what’s more, the coach seems to be too lenient when it comes to Araki. He thinks everything is just fun and games, and that everything will work out somehow in the end. That’s just lazy, disrespectful to others and plain stupid.

I soon realized that there was a lot of competition between the players. You can’t have that when you’re all on the same team, fighting for the exact same goal. The team will just end up splitting in two again, just like before. It’s not even Araki’s fault, he’s just a fat moron that keeps losing to his fast-food addiction. It’s 100% the coach’s fault. It’s his job to manage the players, oversee their training and ensure that everyone does what he or she is supposed to do. You don’t just blame the players when problems keep popping up, you blame the person that’s responsible for them. Mind you, I’m not questioning the coach’s abilities, I’m merely pointing out that he’s just not doing it right.

There was one person that took things seriously though, and that person is none other than Michirou, a former basketball player that turned to soccer because there’s simply more to gain on the financial department. You see, his father’s company went bankrupt, leaving his family with a big debt, so he turned to soccer in order to earn money. That’s quite the noble gesture, but that just means that he’s playing soccer for all the wrong reasons. It doesn’t change the fact that he seems to enjoy it though.

I just hope that the coach will realize his own mistakes before the team falls apart. Their next competition is coming up, so they cannot afford any problems right now. This will prove to be quite the challenge with the coach and Araki being who they are.
