    ….read a quote from Luca Modric on how Zidane found an achilles heel in the Juventus defense and set about aligning his team’s possession tactics to attack this weakness in defending…and then proceeded to score 4 goals against a team only giving up 1 goal every 4 or 5 games. Nobody else thought about this. He did.
    Zidane. Maestro. Two time defending European Champion. A god on the field- now a god on the sidelines.
    Stole this from FourFourTwo…like “Everything. Literally.” else that I poach.
    Enjoy the weather. Heat on the way.

    The pro-rel talk between lower leagues is exciting stuff. I really hope that takes off. It will eventually put pressure on MLS to adopt some form of it… like it a lot. Best of luck.
