Crossing the legendary line is having understood how to break the inviolable rules. It is also finding opportunities by using an inverted logic. Is it abstract? It’s normal! Welcome amongst legends!
But that’s not all there is. On a more concrete level, the legendary coach has a perfect now or never instinct. When to attempt to pick up the ball rather than tag it with tackle zones. When to let a key player visit the crowd to protect a winning situation. When to tickle a passive defence to provoke things, and the list could grow on and on. Legendary coaches usually have a reputation for being lucky, but in reality, they have a stellar risk taking synchronism, the instinct to spot the game’s pivotal play, the flexibility to immediately change tactics to avoid losing control and the gift of getting into their opponent’s head.
