    Just finished listening…great stuff. Well done, John and Gary! Really appreciate what you guys are doing to raise the level of the game here in the US. Keep getting after it.

    Thanks for the declassified conference photo. I can see the biggest piece of the pie labeled psychological and the next biggest tactical. I am wondering what the two smallest pieces of the pie are labeled? I appreciate the quality of your free course. Thank you for your passion.

    If I had only known…. Frog Jumps = Gold Standard!

    I understand your “culture” comment. I had the opportunity to go to Mexico and coach for 4 years. Came back to the US and am coaching in the suburbs – big culture shock. What soccer means to an individual that plays over there is so personal, it is their identity. You see it over here in the latino teams… a bite, a grit that comes through in their play – and then an appreciation for those special moments that results in huge grins – like a seriousness and determination to create beautiful art.

    Keep up the good work John and Gary… and thanks!
