Football represents the evolution of cultures and the mixing of ideas among great nations. Football is also about the struggle between individuality and the system, between traditions and avant-gardism. Practically, football is about life.
Bigger than the club. To understand more beyond the score line, it is important to understand the evolution of tactics in the history of this beautiful game.
To understand international relations, one would have to read about the theoretical debates between realism and liberalism.
To measure the size of energy, one would need to make calculations based on the laws of physics.
Well, the same could be said about football. If you prefer to focus on a particular bad call by the referee, than so be it. But for me, football is more than just Maradona-like solo runs or Beckham-like bended free kicks. Football is not only about the player with the ball, but also those who are not, making runs into open space.
Football is designing a movement encompassing the whole team, in synch, and with a common purpose. Football is about the bigger picture. And the bigger picture always has some deeper meaning to it.
Deeper than the replay of a missed Baggio penalty.
This is not the first time, though. David Winner's Brilliant Orange was a good companion of mine during my short stay in Holland, as I try to understand Dutch culture through its football tactics.
Steve Bloomfield's Africa United attempted to explain the lives of people in many different African countries through football. From the early times of organized matches in England to the Dynamo Kiew scientific approach and the end of the enganche era of players like Riquelme. I learned about the early formation, which led to the way shirt numberings became i.
And how a formation with one less defender may end up being more defensive than a traditional back four i. The Italian catenaccio evolved during a period of lacking confidence, an Italian society that had lived through invasions after another.
As the Italian society dug deep, defended its nation, and waited for the best opportunity to pounce, these sentiments and feelings were transpired into its football tactics.
Nor the reason that many African countries have strong midfielders capable of making vertical runs think Yaya Toure and Michael Essien is because football pitches in Africa are mostly long, narrow, clogged by players, and hugged on its sides by a sewer or garbage dump. I also enjoyed the recurring themes framing football tactics over the years.
As well, the debate between those who favor a system of tactics and those who highlight the individual brilliance of players. How to strike a balance between these extremes to come up with not only the best team, but most importantly, the best-looking team. To some, this would be observed simply as a matter of the football pitch.Write your review.
