I'ev noticed one thing in many asian teams, regardless whether they're clubs or NTs. Once any players get the ball, they'd look up for the star player, or run with theball until they can't run past any opponents anymore, or hoof the ball into the air.
On very few occasions do I see asian teams distribute the ball well between the backline, build it up to the midfiled, hold the ball there for a while and then wait for the forwards to make some nice runs behind the backline for some thru-passes.
The asian players are fit, with good technical skills, not to mention good physical attributes and some great training exposures. However, the amount of thought put into playing the game has obviously lacking.
We in asia rarely see good, intelligent players, and when we do, sometimes it's too frustrating because those plaeyrs don't really have the plaeyrs aroudn them who are erally on their bandwidth.
I'm just sad. There's more to football than just good dribbling skills and a great shot, tactics and speed-of-thought are important too.
I'm really tired of seeing teams going for the long pass upfield. Be it Korea or Iran or Malaysia or Japan. Something has to be done to improve the mentality and the thinking approach of the players in Asia.
