I hate when managers emulate others’ tactics to try and get a better result. We saw it with teams going to Stamford Bridge to play a 4-5-1, copying Mourinho, in the hope of getting a better result than him.
Agree with the statement that you concede more than you will score.
There is some logic to ‘playing from the back’ but it just assumes that the opposition is stupid to not think about countering it.
So the Marshall Islands are the only country not to have a football team.
If they got some of the locals together I bet they’d probably still manage to score against us.
Agree with most on the playing out from the back. My main beef though is the demise of the sweeper system which hasn’t been prevalent as much now I know but still long for the skills of Beckenbauer, Krol, Sceria, Passerella. Graceful footballers enhancing the game.
Scottish FA considering banning heading the ball for kids up to twelve.
Not sure how far this is going to go in the end.
Not even sure how much kids head the ball at them ages.
Unlike all the other kids, I did loads. I’d stick my head in front of anything. Probably the only reason I ever got a game lol
You must have been a towering CB from young lol
We can tell
I rarerly did that tbh, didn’t like heading the ball, although I was tall… But once I did it on one occasion I fucking broke my fucking nose, bleeding litres of blood after it… colliding with my fucking team mate btw.
They should ban that evil forever!
Fully behind this.
We’ve had a few defenders in the last decade who implemented this.
I don’t read the Daily Mail btw this was sent to me.
I think he’s a referee.
Has to be Aguero or Bendtner, no where else comes close.
No option for Giroud so I’m not voting
