There will be different situations in the game and our decision-making will be influenced by each specific moment.
We will be able to recognize patterns over time however no one situation will be exactly the same. Our predictions can improve however nothing is certain.
Rules that begin with always and never are fixed and should be challenged since the game continues to evolve.
We still hear an occasional: “Never pass the ball across the middle” shout from a spectator outside of the field because their own fear of failure cannot be kept to themselves.
When and where is more important to reiterate rather than never do this or always do it this way.
If a problem is solved differently than anyone has done it before it is appreciated and admired however fail and most will explain what should have been done.
Since most of our answers will depend on numerous considerations, the deeper we go the more likely we’ll move in our preferred direction.
Yours in soccer,
