When things are moving too fast we need to slow down and make a better decision.
This delay can allow our teammates to get organized for the next attack.
In the game and in life we should have different tempos. We should not go 100 M.P.H. for 90 minutes, as we will for sure create avoidable mistakes.
The smartest players understand the pause and when it is needed. It is not because the person on the ball needs a break however it is because the game is asking for it.
There are different ways this pause can be applied and someone must possess specific qualities to use a pause advantageously.
These moments can be the necessary calmness right before the next best move.
Yours in soccer,
