Nope, it's a cow bell that makes it funny.
That's what Peggy used to help Bobby get laughs from his school announcements on King of the Hill

Proper sports event cow bell use.

Everyone,

I have just turned the 135 page word file for my new book into a PDF. Is there anyone out there interested in reading it (or even a part of it)?

I intend to write in excess of 200 pages.

Please don't take any time away from the valuable things in your daily life that should be a priority, (like abusing me on this forum), but when you have a spare moment I would love to get your feedback on the sections I have written so far.

Before finishing I would like to point out that my new book is written to change the perspective of players, parents, coaches (and everyone else in society who is willing to read it). Its premise is very unique and controversial but it makes too much practical sense to be disregarded.

For now that's all I'm going to tell you.

All feedback, critical or otherwise will be positively taken.

Kindest regards,

smile Andy Barney

PS: If you want the PDf please email me at andy@kclegendssoccer.com or call my cell 913-636-4073

Personally I would rather watch paint dry, so I guess you don't need to be sending me the PDF of the world's most boring soccer book.

How can you say it's the "world's most boring soccer book" unless you are prepared to read it?

If you have a child I hope for his/her sake that he/she doesn't inherit your attitude! frown

Many of the critics on this forum say similar negative things about my first book. Thankfully, I have good references from people who really know their stuff. smile

“Andy has figured out the core of what makes players valuable. He has boiled the game down to its critical essence. He captivated and motivated me with his intelligent use of inspiring and meaningful quotations. It’s a book not just about the technical foundation of the game but also about the elements that define the margins of soccer greatness i.e. aggressive creativity, self-discipline, competitive fire and self-belief.

Wonderfully original!! It should be an essential component of any soccer coach or parent’s library. It’s outstanding!!” grin

Anson Dorrance – Head Women’s Coach at the University of North Carolina (21 NCAA Division I Championships) & 1991 FIFA Women’s World Cup Winner.

"A must for youth soccer coaches. Read it. Think about it. Then, reconsider everything you do. If you can't take away something - quite possibly a lot - from this book, you are doing a disservice to your players." blush

Jim Sheldon – Executive Director of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America

"Andy has summed up his unique philosophy of player development in this fascinating book. His methodology, along with his high-energy teaching style has consistently produced dynamic, creative, attacking players. Just as his coaching is a careful balance of reason and passion, so is his whole approach to the game; quite simply, he grows better players who make better teams. His players have impacted NCAA Div.1 programs and are now poised to impact MLS." laugh

Sean Holmes - Head Coach - Drake University - Nationally Ranked 2004 & 2005 - Region II ODP Staff Coach - Three Players Drafted By MLS In Last Two Years

"I attended one of Andy's practice sessions in the Fall of 2004. I watched his two U11 girl’s teams practicing. I have never seen such a large group of 10 year old girls where every player had such advanced dribbling and shooting technique under pressure." smirk

Jeff Tipping - National Soccer Coaches Association of America Director of Coaching. Previously Assistant Coach for the U.S. Women's National Team and Head Coach at Muhlenberg College

“My first-hand experience with Ryan Raybould, a Legends-trained player who plays professionally with Kansas City Wizards in MLS, was evidence that Andy’s methods are effective and long-lasting. Ryan was an All-Ivy selection for us at Yale and an industrious and creative big play performer for all four years. The Legends program clearly developed a high level of competitiveness, field savvy and technical excellence in his game. Andy’s book enthusiastically and effectively challenged my long-held mainstream coaching notions about how to develop creative and skilled players.
I incorporate his methods in my college training and encourage coaches at all levels who are truly looking to bring out the very best in their players to do the same.” cool

Brian Tompkins – Head Coach Yale University Men’s Team
