    I can no longer make sense of his statements. My subscription to AmeyTranslate is out of date.

    Aesthetic achievement for Amey is key. Rather than physical achievement.

    Game 2 1-1 😁
    Game 3 1-2 😬

    It was hard watching, it's hard explaining how to take up space and where to be. But I think we got there. One of our midfielders is really skilled. Some really great adventurous passing. One of our defenders has really grown in confidence and was really switched on all the time.

    Paternal review: MJ was lost on the wing for a bit, she does take up good positions. Moved her into the middle for a bit. Wasn't great but kept plugging away. Moved to the back and was actually very good. No one got goal side, shoving her forward around. And then.
    We're getting pushed back. She receives the ball on the edge of the box, there's oncoming defenders, a touch to control it and a simple square pass inside. Freeing the midfielder to run it out.

    "All day long" was my embarrassing shout of pride.

    Pints are definitely the cure for DOMS.

    Also my daughter made a blind side run on her defender yesterday knowing Id put the ball where she wanted it. If it had gone in, you'd never have heard the end of it from me.

    I'm a big fan of just playing and learning.
    I'm not a great player and the coaches appreciate we're here to provide a bit more running around and some bonding experiences.

    However, our first match the coaches were all as edgy as the kids, super excited and nervous.
    Watching them put into action the things we have been teaching them, there was a sequence of 6 one touch passes from back to front that had one dad near tears. My daughter was pushing her marker at a corner around with a forearm I'd have been proud of.

    This one we're wary of for exactly the reason of being crushed. They're good kids and it's been brilliant watching them grow in confidence week on week.
    Though getting tackled by 14 year olds who are bigger than me is getting a bit old.
