View Full Version : Men on the post

I'm sure there are many on here who have played at the dizzy heights of Sunday League football, it was always the thing to have men on both post.
Now it doesn't seem the case yet quite a few goals go in that seemingly would be stopped.
What's that about then? Why are clubs not listening to us Sunday league players?

FA coaching manuals.

On last seasons Radio Lancs live Q&A SD was asked about leaving players up front when defending corners. His answer was basically statistics and percentages. Surely it's up to a forward thinking coach to solve these problems not just accept them.

Said something along the lines of... "Few if any across Europe leave anyone up when defending a corner".

Don't doubt his or the teams analysis on this in terms of the stats, but suffice to say we let a goal in only a few weeks later against a team adopting this unseen practice. Sod's law!
