Most of the good ones we've had in the last few years (when I say few, I mean maybe a decade and a half or so) have actually captained Premier League clubs. That's no small feat.
 
Where are THOSE kinda mindsets coming from these days?

Id have to agree. I see it underage all the time. My young lad plays under 11 and they dont see to have that extra bit of drive. Its all teams not just his, they seem to loose a match and its forgotten about as soon as they step off the pitch. Now of course participation is hugely important and they are just kids at the end of the day and of course accepting defeat (and victory) is important. But you see the odd young lad who during the game is really up for it and wants to win and actually cares. These are few and far between tho. 

To put it into perspective going back to when I was still playing Youths football 06/07 season the majority of my team (roughly 9/10 players) either played with the mens A or B Team within the club on a Sunday.

I currently manage a Premier Division club in Carlow and between our A & B Team we have 1 youth playing.

Same. Winning isn't the be all and end all and I appreciate that maybe 1% might go on to play at even a high senior level, but when did everyone stop caring about losing?

"There are a fair few of these pitches in housing estates scattered around the South East alone!"

I'd struggle to name 5 in Dublin.

You were talking about countries and in the same breath said "here" so one would assume it was Ireland you meant not Dublin so you weren't very specific.

Hard to know would these astro pitches be maintained and left from ruin/being burnt out in the worst areas in Dublin. 

Which is sad to say in 2018.

Which is incorrect.

There are a fair few of these pitches in housing estates scattered around the South East alone!

Private housing estates could do with them as much as the council estates and deprived areas imo.

True about kids being too soft though.
