Charles Storey’s “Positional Chess Skills” - Never Touch Wing Pawns!

Opening: E02, E05: Catalan with 5.Qa4, Catalan classical line

Player(s): Andersson, Milov, Winants

It's an order: never touch a wing pawn!
It sounds a bit strange, doesn't it?
What does FM Charlie mean wth "Never touch a wing pawn?".
I got to touch a wing pawn at some point, right?
Of course, you will have to.
But, according to Charlie's "policies" to improve your positional skills, you should try to see if there is a chance to increase your pieces' color before you move a wing pawn.
In this fourth video, FM Storey explains that there can be exceptions to this rule, but also that ignoring it can cause problems and damage to your position. To show this critical concept, Charlie uses two games played by the great Ulf Andersson.
