Does crossing even matter that match directly? or its more to stretch the field?
Is it our preconception of good goals from the flying wing backs, fullbacks from youtube make us hate decent fullbacks.
Abate is terrible crosser he cannot even complete few before this year.
In general. Carlos team didnt cross much and they were really good. Fergies team always crossed and they were good
oh well beckham is a freak i guess
I consider a cross completed if the next on-the-ball action is performed by the player from the crossing team
So lot of teams does it, so there might be a reason for it, or players are bored playing 90 minutes, there are only so many moves you can make
A cross is converted if the crossing team scores within 5 seconds of the cross. This is an arbitrary window, but it should catch all the goals (including own goals) which are “due” to the cross in significant degree. This will include own goals, rebounds and goals from brief goal-line scrambles
Football is a game of Go
or traditional it is , where everybody is under the belief thats its a series of butterfly effects
, eat the space and capture the field
I wish we had some numbers on Zeman , no foreplay just score
jesus its a very very difficult game and simple
