    Soccer Primer #1: International soccer vs. club soccer

    in Soccer

    In the first of our new Soccer Primer series, we discuss the differences between club and international football, including a look at the various non-World Cup international tournaments and the player transfer system that exists between clubs. And much much more.

    What's this all about? Well, towards the end of the World Cup, we invited new soccer fans to send us quetions with the subject line: Primer. "We'll answer anything," we said. "There are no stupid questions, only Taylor's stupid answers," one of us said, off air. And the questions arrived. Then arived some more. They're actually still arriving.

    So we've broken our Primer shows, in which we answer said questions, into a series. On the second Primer show, out this Monday, we'll discuss the soccer media, which TV channels are worth your money, and which you should avoid.

Club soccer has grown leaps and bounds over the years.  The thing that is happening with club soccer is that players who want to play soccer in college are not playing at the High School level.  So what has to happen with club soccer is that the players are now playing club soccer year round and taking away from high school participation.  Fasten your seat belts and put your foot on the gas - Mike Murphy has an idea that will make you think he has been tipping the bottle.
