2 type of long ball..Originally Posted by zhapchit
1) Target man is there..and u kick a long ball to him.Most of the situation..off side.
2) target man is not there yet...and u kick a long ball to that spot and anticapate the striker is able to run there on time to receive the ball. No offside. typical example....berger long kick and owen chase the ball. and owen scored. heskey long kick the ball...owen chase the ball...forced the brazilian defender to make error and deflected the ball from the hips..and drop the ball on the ground and owen grab the opportunities to score..Goal...England leading brazil 1-0, in 2002 world cup.
Would u say 2) is absolutely aimless ?
