| Soccer Board|| Year Zero: How Germany restructured itself – and why it couldn't work elsewhere - crazy4lsu on 8/3/14 at 1:55 pm|
In the wake of Germany's World Cup triumph, much was made of the fact this success had been a dozen years in the making - or, more precisely, the planning.
| Soccer Board|| Do formations exist? - crazy4lsu on 8/1/14 at 12:07 pm|
I've been thinking a lot about tactics lately, because I'm bored, and I've been thinking a lot about formations. I think video games have influenced a lot of how we think the game is played.

| Soccer Board|| Are American players good enough? - crazy4lsu on 1/13/14 at 11:04 am|
So with the news that two of America's best players have returned to the MLS to ply their trade, I think we should ask this question seriously. My inclination is to say that our best players are only good enough for mid-tier European sides at this point, and more often than not, they are barely good...

I suppose the early favorites are Spain, Germany and Holland.
I think this might be the year Germany gets over the hump. Spain will be really good, but their performance will all depend on their ability to get the correct balance, as they have a plethora of world class central players, and not e...
