The free-flowing moves that result in goals, the accurate passing, pinpoint crosses, long distance cannons. These are all elements of football that bring joy to football fans all across the world.

While there has been warranted criticism for negative minded coaches like Jose Mourinho, Tony Pulis and to a lesser extent Diego Simeone, high praise should be given to the coaches and teams who have dared to play the beautiful game in the manner that it should be played.

The surprising thing has been the willingness of teams other than the traditional big ones to go on the front foot and attack as well as entertain.

#6. RB Leipzig (Germany)

The new kids on the block have continued their gegenpressing, high octane, end to end footballing style which won them a lot of admirers last season.

While this all-action approach has led to the team conceding lots of goals and their fair share of losses, it has also given the team fearlessness and a self-belief that they can take on anybody.

The additions of a new crop of youngsters; Jean Augustin (PSG), Jeffrey Bruma (Galatasaray SK) alongside the experienced midfielder Kevin Kampl (Bayer Leverkusen) has added a new dynamic to an exciting team that already featured the talents of Timo Werner, Emile Forsberg, Naby Keita among others.

Coach Ralph Hasenhüttl has continued to tweak his side to continue delivering this pleasing style of play that has seen Die Roten Bullen score 20 goals in all competitions (Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League).

The first-ever win in the UCL (a 3-2 win over FC Porto) & the smashing of league leaders Borussia Dortmund at the famed Signal Iduna Park (another 3-2 win) are positive pointers to the team's excellence.

Well, I love football (a look at my body of work tells a better story). However, I also love other sports and from time to time, pen articles concerning basketball, tennis, boxing, and e-sports. I follow these sports as much as I can, this explains why I write on a lot of different topics ranging from analysis and tactics to transfers and a whole lot more (reviews, previews and everything in between). Real Madrid is the team closest to my heart (same goes for Rafa Nadal, Raul Gonzalez, Mike Tyson, Mortal Kombat and the San Antonio Spurs).
