In fact, read everypost in that blog. I don’t agree 100% with every post, and disagree with several, but 3four3.com put into words what I’ve always felt instinctually but couldn’t articulate.

Good soccer IS possible. There is a standard way to teach and play it, a “gold standard”. Winning soccer isn’t necessarily good soccer. Credentials mean little. Education is key. Culture is important. Honesty is paramount. Technique AND tactics. Coaching is crucial. Quality starts from both the bottom up AND the top down. Asking questions is required. I don’t have all the answers.
