Again the response is "they might be bad but I bet your kids/team/league is worse". Sad, really.

Oh are you rubber and I'm glue?

If you think giving commentary/critique on technique and tactical ability in a "national selection" online streamed game is 'dishing it out' then you have some issues.

So, instead of whining about girls playing soccer, he should focus on his own gender, dontchathink? What a nob.

That said, USWNT, most college, and high school use long-ball tactics. It's what they do. Lob the ball forward with no great precision so an athlete/track star can run onto it and push the ball in the direction of goal. There is no reason for any youth club to develop Manchester City style play because the teams their players go to pretty much only play long-ball.
you make it sound like track stars grow on trees. they dont. i do chuckle at how these boards imply that elite talent - be it soccer, speed or general athletic - are so prevalent. Teams play long ball because

1. many girls do not deal with aerial balls well
2. minimizes risk in your own defensive third
3. places a lower premium on ball control and precision
4. reduces risk in transition

Obviously there are other reasons, but the implication that everyone has great athletes is false. They are rare as well.

In general, part of the reason we play long ball is because its the easiest way to achieve some success in the shortest period of time.

Use the video. Sit your player down and teach away. Use it for team instruction. No issues.

This is ts..an anonymous chat forum populated by nasty trolls. Discussing specific non-pro youth players on here is a dick move. Period.
