Youíve got to have the players for it to work
Iím not suggest it would be any more palatable to you philistines. But itís pointless without ability, movement and awareness. You wouldnít play long ball with a team of midgets or counter attacking with a team of Gylfis.
There was a perfect example of it last night in the Belgium game. The commentator even said just before the move started that it was walking football. Which is sort of the point, slow slow quick. The play had almost come to a stop and Belgium just leisurely passed it to each then all of a sudden three of the Belgium players moved space opened up and a couple of quick passes and they were in. For me, when done right, itís football utopia. Total domination and control.
Farting round at the back
Backwards and sideways passing
Boring and tedious. I blame Pep. Poor imitations of a few great teams
They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.
