On the tackling, it's definitely a very English obsession. Fetish, even. Your continental and your South American find the admiration of tackling as a skill in itself strange and puzzling. There isn't even a word for it in Spanish, now I think about it.
Yet there best defender is fucking good at it?? How many times has Ramos flown in with a great last ditch tackle to dig his teammates out the shit? To be fair though he’s also made quite a few god awful ones that have resulted in a red card🤣
