When asked who Simon’s favorite player was he answered: “Thierry Henry; because he has everything a player could ever want - speed, strength, composure, vision, great skill and he is an entertainer.” Simon’s analysis of Henry actually describes many of his own attributes as a coach at the British Football Academy. He’s quick to think on his feet when it comes to tweaking his pre-planned sessions to cater to unforeseen circumstances, has a strong and passionate will to share his love of football with younger generations, is as composed as any other coach in the Academy when the pressure’s on, has the vision to see how each of his sessions are linked and form a ‘total football program’ and possesses the skill as a coach to see each and every session through to positive fruition. Simon himself is also a great entertainer and during his sessions, as the kids play and learn about football, they do so with beaming smiles thanks to Simon.
