Andy don't get paranoid!

Paul was displaying a large dose of sarcasm when doubting the identity of the 17 yr old as was I in my response.
Don't take yourself too seriously my friend.
You really are turning into an American Andy! smile

I didn't think about that.

Point well taken!

Thanks,

John,

I wish I was as sure as you that Paul wasn't serious.

I'm equally sure that some people reading his post would believe him.

I'll take that as a compliment.

In all seriousness, Andy, that one response was a bit of a shocker. Let's keep it a bit lighter, eh? I wish nothing but the best for your girls, and everyone else's kids here. Still am impressed you were able to raise five of 'em and keep at least a little of your sanity.

(Though the parts of your sanity lost could explain some of the posts smile )

You didn't offend me, because I don't listen to your opinion regarding the raising of my children.

Andy,
That is very interesting what you have to say about Tim because he teaches passing at the early ages also. (He teaches the complete game...dribbling and passing at the early ages). He has some of the best passing players around at the early ages and he encourages them to pass during the game! (And they usually win a lot of games).

We encourage our players to pass at the younger ages also. However, we manage to get every player to use deceptive dribbling moves by expecting a piece of individual brilliance (a fake) before the pass. If all goes to plan we get a great individual play and a great team play on every possession.

I hope this clears up any misconception (if there was one).

Paul,

Good one! The only way to stay sane in my house is show absolutely no emotion when everyone else is losing it.

However, let's not get too chummy. You keep me on my toes and I'm sure to hit a nerve sooner rater than later.

Andy,
Tim's teams pass so much better than any Legends team that I have seen play the game (especially at the earlier ages). There really is no comparison. So he must be coaching different than you are. I have noticed in games that he doesn't tell the player to make a move; he asks them to get in the proper position and to pass the ball. Then in the attacking third one of his skilled players will take on the last defender to score or cross the ball.
