Why so much crossing?

Recommended Posts

Crossing is a good thing if from the right area.....the two or three times we got to the byline and crossed we looked dangerous. The problem is when we cross from just inside their half with hopeful punts into daly, playing right into their strengths!

Hitting the by line and crossing is fine. Crossing the ball in from 30 yards out is the issue. Step forward aird - he crosses too many from too deep.

This. I've seen players with more creative spark playing Sunday league.

Frustrating thing is I think he actually has some ability in him... Somewhere.

Obviously there needs to be a bit of variety, but to be fair they were playing with a midfielder sitting in front of their 2 centre halves. Not a lot of space to play through the middle.

It was the standard of the crosses that was the problem, that and the fact Dy was up front on his own.

Lazy archaic tactics, pedestrian build up like a pensioners pub team meant the option was the high hopeless cross from deep playing into the opponents strength, we rarely had anyone in the box to take advantage of any knock downs even if Daly could manage to get near the ball.
