We hoof mainly when we are under pressure, in other words, get rid if there’s a serious chance of losing it in any sort of danger area or if there’s any danger we get caught on the break.
We hot long ball into ‘areas’ up front, which is not hoofing.
And don’t be turning the simplistic tag on me, you’re the one saying “all we do is hoof it”, and that “we should just pass the ball around a bit and everything will be fine”.
Anyway down to brass tacks, who/how will either side get a breakthrough, barring a bad ref decision or a terrible mistake? I think the stage is set for Robbie Brady if he plays. You’d have to question though will we have the legos to beat them?
