Football goes through phases, and right now, we're riding the crest of a goal-ridden wave.
The amount of goals per season is steadily increasing, and managers such as Sir Alex Ferguson and Tito Vilanova have been leading the charge.
When you look at the amount of clean sheets recorded now, it's negligible. As far as football fans are concerned, this is a good decade to be watching the game.
Italy has seen two extremes with regard to football logic, going from Helenio Herrera's catenaccio to Arrigo Sacchi's exquisite Milanese methods. Just short of 10 years ago, the 4-5-1 reigned supreme. Now, we're moving in the other direction.
