Football's Home Fans


20121201Comedian and football dad Ian Stone investigates the efforts to stamp out bad behaviour at children's football. Following widespread reports of parents fighting and abusing referees, the Football Association launched its Respect campaign at the start of the 2008/9 season. Ian meets the campaign manager to debate whether Respect has really worked. At training and on the touchline at one of his son's matches, we hear how parents and coaches behave and find out what they make of the FA campaign. And Ian talks to fellow football dad and author Jim White whose book You'll Win Nothing With Kids describes the strains and stresses of being not just a football parent but also the team coach.
