Tiki-Taka Lollapalooza

With the appointment of Mr.Rodgers as the new Liverpool manager, articles and blogs have mushroomed all over the net telling us the kind of tactics Mr.Rodgers might deploy at Anfield. It looks quite easy really. Is it really?

He divides the field into 8 separate zones and player assigned to play on a particular zone has a certain role and has to have a specific set of footballing skills, unlike "total football" where the skills possessed by each player is adaptive to the role they need to play on the pitch. When they lose the ball, they have to work their socks off to win it back as quickly as possible and when the ball is won, pass it around to create chances. By moving the ball around, the players have time to settle down and take a breather.

That is called tiki-taka football.

The tiki-taka shenanigan has taken the football world by storm. Similar to news of boa constrictors swallowing kids, tiki-taka is suddenly everywhere like wildfire.

Due to this tiki-taka outbreak, some fans are worried that everyone now knows what the hell tiki-taka is all about and Liverpool's tiki-taka tactic will turn into bubbles, blown away into oblivion by gust as mild as Chelsea. Before you know it, there's a handbook called "How To Terminate Tiki-Taka For Dummies" being sold on book stands all over the world.

Folks, it took Brendan Rodgers almost 20 years to make it good, putting ideas to paper and kept load piles of files on the subject matter and we worry over a two page worth of tiki-taka info being shared. Let Mr.Rodgers worry about that and we ourselves worry about settling our own bills, okay?

For all we know, if Sir purple nose were to implement similar tactics it may turn into ziggy zaggy with Gigsy as the clown, rudeboy as the court jester and Nani as, errr ... Nani? When that happens, we shall all sip coffee and call it the "chewing gum-chewing gim" football.

    he tells Todd to shut down, pack up and go home on this episode of "Gold Rush. They even carried a heavy five-gallon cooler of water with cups to ensure we all stayed hydrated in the jungle heat - and a large plastic bag for disposing our trash. From crimson beaches bathed with sweat To jungle heat and flame, For love of country, they obeyed And did not serve in shame.
