I bow to your better explaination to the "feel of turf" flat back 4, and I 100% agree that if players coming from grass fields used for both football and soccer, the ebb and flow of a turf field can be a challenge. Luckily, we got some time on a field and our girls will "handle" the turf well. As for not playing soccer much. . . why yesterday I was kicking the ball aroud. . . however putting me in a uniform and out on a field with a ball. . . let's say that was in the previous century.
Nice write up today for Devils (and Rams), will be looking forward to the game on Saturday. . . whatever time it is! Go Devils!!
