If you ever need a lesson in the importance of defensive shape - Stewie Griffin
Brazil's display yesterday is the most striking example I've ever seen. I went back a watched the four goal sequence, and it was incredible how undisciplned Marcelo and David Luiz were, and how poor the body language of every defender except Marcelo was, even when it was 1-0. Zonal marking is...

In terms of the sport's popularity and growth. This years's attention and coverage of the USMNT and the entire WC is many times what it was four years ago, much less 8 or 12. It's nice to sit back and see the rest of the country see the beauty in this game. I remember Cowherd four years...
