Welcome to On The Half Volley

Welcome to On The Half Volley

My name is Dale and I am a university student living in Canada who is currently freelance writing and decided to post my opinions in a blog. I’ve been watching football (Glory Glory Man United!) for as long as I can remember and lately the recent emphasis on numbers has made me look at things from a different perspective. Sometimes stats will confirm my opinion of a player, other times the eye test is completely opposite to what the numbers say. I will be writing about the game trying to balance a bit of both.

First things first…why the name on the half volley? It could be because a half volley is slightly less difficult than a volley, but when it is pulled off the ball usually goes flying top bins. Maybe it’s could be because “The Volley” could be referring to a tennis or volleyball blog, or a random computer game. Alternately, maybe I just wanted to slyly include a video of a highlight worthy Pogba goal in a Manchester United shirt

You can choose any of the above answers but as of right now this is a working title, so I’ll see if I can think of something better.

In this blog, I will write regularly about ongoing narratives in world soccer mainly focused on the PL, Champions League, La Liga, Bundesliga with some occasional features on teams & players from other leagues. Besides taking a look at the weekly matches I have planned an ongoing series looking at players and coaching performance over longer periods of time.

Thanks for reading my welcome message, my next post will be a review of PL Matchday 24. I have 2 posts planned for the following week and I will be posting on here regularly once I figure out a schedule that works. I welcome any discussions through the comment section (NAME SUGGESTIONS) or also on Twitter. I also would love to read interesting football posts you have come across whether written by yourself or others, so feel free to point me in that direction. My email is in the contact section for any other questions.
