I grew up playing soccer and swimming... then as I got older I was getting pretty serious with both and had to choose which I was going to dedicate my time to and swimming won out because I hated the soccer coach I had at the time. I love the sport, but I don't really "follow" it like I probably should. I think it's more fun to play than watch, but I feel like that about most sports (can't stand to watch baseball). I keep up with what's going on with the US team and a few MLS clubs and every 4 years I get sucked into the World Cup. As much as I hate to say it, if you want to get a feel for good soccer then watch Brazil. Bad teams make the game look chaotic, but teams like Brazil control the ball so well that you can really see the strategy play out (kinda like the MCM when you saw Dyson heading upfield as the wall formed in front of him). Just watch how they work the ball around - lots of nice one-touch passes instead of dinking around with the ball trying to get set up, and when they pass they tend to place the ball perfectly... just like what VY needs to do consistently.
