My favorite kind of snark

I don't really follow sport writers. The exception is Jonathan Wilson, less because of what he writes about (soccer, with an emphasis on the Premier League, as he writes for The Guardian) than because of how he writes about it [source]:
Attack, attack, attack.

Under Louis van Gaal, Manchester United attacked. They often attacked in a way that would excite only the most purist of Dutchmen, retaining possession with a risk-averse monotony that brought the very term “attacking” to semantic crisis, but it was attacking. There was a plan, even if it was dull and predictable.

Attack, attack, attack.


[...]retaining possession with a risk-averse monotony that brought the very term “attacking” to semantic crisis[...] is quite a nice turn of phrase.
