decision making is harder to improve than skills, too.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

Yahweh? or the great Clawski?

poor kid.

those with a strange kicking action can get an undeserved rep as a bad kick, because it sticks out more.

l noticed him because he moves like Dustin Fletcher & he does have a brain under pressure.
Same physique too.

Considerably shorter than Fletcher...

I like the line "rarely beaten one on one".

He seems to hit his targets so I'd rather have someone with his kicking action with that result rather than Greg Tivendale's exquisite long raking left footers straight down the throat of the opposition! :whistle

Well if he works hard on his action and has the right teachers assisting him he could be a very good player.

Kick that ball 24/7

Greg is a top bloke! Just drove me batty when I saw the most beautiful text book kicks go straight to the opposition.

Just saying hitting the target is far more important than what the action looks like. Say hi to cousin Wayne from me. ;D

his highlights package was filled with him hitting short targets in the backline.

yet every time he stuffs a kick, which everyone does, it will stick in peoples minds because of his kicking action, which actually reminds me of cotchin
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."
