Fair enough.I would answer, it's very much soccer except for the youngers, except with the silly set pieces and the unfortunate necessity that the final defender often needs to stand in front of the goal, in the absence of a goalkeeper. But otherwise, all the basic principles -- ball control, movement off the ball, far post runs, striking the ball cleanly, anticipation, 1v1, 2v1, 2v2, knowing when to play quickly and when to hold up the ball. What's not to like? Become teenagers, and the game becomes more of a chess match, probe, probe, probe, with little action and little running. Interesting enough in its own way, and perhaps good for certain skill enhancement, but not enough action/physicality/motion to truly be "soccerlike."
Isn't 1+3 = 4?
