    I agree very much with you here in a sense, but I suppose people give words
    their meaning, even if it does not follow a useful logic.

    right, and as you can see above Balla, and Ash on the other page don't
    either...2 of the best coaches we have on here.
    You are a new guy on here and you will find your way with some time or
    like most fade away after awhile. Either way, we as a group are used to
    both.

    I really don't "hit" a half-volley. It happens by instinct when the ball is too close to the feet.

    Ooh, that's difficult to answer. I mean ask someone like Bahrami and he'll insist its a legitimate shot.
