wow. maybe you can post three more responses and pretend your three new people. Unbelievable. The OP is right about one thing, parents need to step off and leave Coaching to the Coaches.

Sounds to be like your darling soccer star may be slow. Maybe you should consider volleyball or golf. This game doesn't suit everyone's abilities

Enough with the 'possession' rants. I am so tired of all the soccer know-it-alls coming on here throwing around the 'possession' buzz word. First of all, believe it or not, a lot of people get this concept, more than you think. Soccer USA does have some intelligence on this topic. 2nd of all, most Premier A level coaches ARE teaching it, contrary to what you think or say. And 3rd, you are hung up in past 10 years of Barcelona this, Barcelona that. Today, Germany plays the best brand of soccer. They often LOSE the possession battle but are winning games with strong, fast counter attacks mixed with quick combinations. Their athletes are physically stronger, faster, bigger. It is too simple to say that possession is better than direct style of play.

Please get off your high horse. You sound foolish.

Dear 'Possession guy':

You should quit when you're behind. You are getting throttled in this argument. We understand that you have heard the word 'possession' and you want to sound smart. We also understand that your DD's team is losing games to better athletes and better teams. And your own DD is slow. Unfortunately for you, soccer is a game of speed. Very few people are successful at a high level if they are slow.

Please. For you own sake. Stop. You sound like an idiot.

Sincerely,

Everyone else on Talking Soccer

I think you should make a sign saying, "Boot it to Alex" and go to the next game and show it proudly...
You are a complete moron.
