D.C. United are finally featured in MLS otherwise outstanding feature MLS Insider. This week's episode is about something I think almost everybody reading this site has played at some point: 5v2 keep-away. Which doesn't actually have to be 5v2 - it's often much more than that: 6v2, 9v2, 12v2 - just so long as there are two unlucky victims to embarrass in the middle.
The video goes through why players like it, why every coach in the world uses it during warm-ups, and its role in enforcing locker room hierarchies. Honestly, there's a lot more depth to this segment than you'd reasonably expect from such a short piece.
So give it a watch, and then let us know in the comments what you think of the classic keep-away variant on soccer.
(Okay, fine, I'll stop distracting you from getting amped for tomorrow at RFK. Go on, focus on that now. Go!)
