The Value of Hard Work in Life and in Futbol
Date Posted: 5/16/2018
Wednesday, May 16th 2018 LYON, France — Striker Antoine Griezmann punished sloppy Marseille with two expertly-taken goals as Atletico Madrid won the Europa League for the third time with a resounding 3-0 victory in the final. However, beyond the title, Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone shared a valuable life lesson that transcends sport itself. "It's more than about winning the Europa League tonight,” Simeone stated, “It’s about more than a trophy. it represents the value of hard work, a steady hand and consistency, values to be successful in life. Keeping at it, keep working hard and it will bear fruit."

Keeping the 'BALL' Principles of Modern Play!
Date Posted: 3/27/2016
The recent bad form of the USMNT in all competitions can best be expressed in head coach Jurgen Klinsmann's own words, "I see that we struggle to keep the ball, that we struggle to have a combination, a rhythm, movement off the ball." This honest and accurate assessment of USMNT performance is rooted in a style of play that has hindered the evolution of modern soccer for years in the United States. Instead of adopting, teaching, and insisting on a more proactive possession-oriented style of soccer the US produces more of the same old rudimentary over the top, hit it and hope style that relies more on hustle and toil than technical skill and tactical understanding.
