A short episode this week.
It’s a quick read of an article written by Gary Kleiban that was originally published on January 10, 2010. It ends with the question… “What do you think?”
So, tell us. What do you think? Let us know in the comment section or by using the hashtag #343podcast on Twitter.

Unfortunately, the high soccer IQ player — as described by Gary — doesn’t get much attention. I see this on the youth team I coach and the adult team I play on.
The risk taker is cheered, even when he blows the game, because every once in awhile the risk pays off and that’s what’s remembered.
Play simple, nobody notices.
Kit Elliott says
So true. They have such selective memories, especially the parents.
If we can develop our teams to have the high IQ type, then it will help to educate the public who watches our teams play. We’re slowing chipping away.
This is why the 3four3 community is so great: we stick to our principles and strive for true possession soccer.
Dino Zoff says
Simple. Short. Sweet … keep the ball, it is more fun to have it. Lose it? Get it back. But think! Try not to lose it by being selfish. Ok, in the attacking third you may have to be a bit selfish .. BUT Don’t lose it … if possible, keep it, and score OR create a great passing opportunity.
