Well that was exactly what i was thinking....
Unless you know the bf, it really doesn't matter. If she is dating some dude you're kinda friends with, it's anti-bro to pursue.
The Bro-Code......I actually have a pdf of that.....
Yeah...i watch too many american tv shows.....
Vince that's called rape
She blinked twice for yes.
In case some didn't notice, I was taking the mickey.
Is that your after the event line?
Teso's just mad 'cause I got game.
There's something happening here,
What it is ain't exactly clear...
If by game you mean 'mass to pin them down to help minimise the chance of any managing to wriggle free' then you would be correct.
Teso Has No Game
Bah, to each their own! I am terrible at being very up front from the off (as in, comically terrible*) but still plenty of have success, apparently due to my indifference I have been told.
*and the sight of me on a dancefloor I have also been told is literally painful. God I hate dancefloors.
So I've decided that I'm legally changing my name to Owen Hargreaves tomorrow.
Last night I twisted my ankle very badly and I can't walk at all...theres a decent sized bump on the side of my leg... does anyone have expertise in ankle injuries? I'm wondering what would indicate the difference between a severe sprain and a fracture.
I pretty much give up at this point.
What? Was Bronaldo legally taken?
And Charlie Manson.
Teso works such long hours that he does not have the strength left to get it up.
Inside or outside of the ankle? How high on the leg is it? If it's about 2-4 inches above the talus (main ankle ball) then it could be a high sprain and it's worth getting checked out by a doctor. Commonly those can be associated with tibia and fibula fractures as well because the Syndesmotic ligament (the ligament that holds the two together and to the ankle) is torn causing unusual stress to the bones.
I detest people who play football stupid. Sigh… so a friend of mine asked me to play intramurals with his team. We had our first game last night, no practice and barely any warm up. We decide on a system and play it with limited success for the first half. During this time, our defenders have been under pressure because our midfielders are not facing the ball. At HT I explain that if the mids don’t a) show for the ball and call for it b) talk and move in order to get on the ball, the defenders will be forced to hit it long.
Everyone nods their heads in agreement. So the 2nd half starts and we go down 2-1 and I let it sit for a few minutes all the while our mids routinely have their BACKS to the defenders when we are in possession. I decide to take matters into my own hands and ask someone to cover for me while I made a forward run. It was a ruse, just so I could sit in midfield for awhile.
So there I am, moving laterally, calling for the ball, passing and moving and all of a sudden, we have meaningful possession and create 3 clear-cut chances in 5minutes before the guy who was holding me announces that he’s no longer playing in the back – he says I’m playing “too cautious and not making forward runs” I tell him we’re creating chances and we have possession the goal will come. He ignores me and moves up. I signal for a sub and go off the pitch. FUMING.
Get back on 10 minutes later and insert myself in midfield, go to business again – start a move, dribble one, play one two. Stand on ball, suck defenders in, switch flanks… ball finds its way back to me, I fake a shot and play through the same midfielder who refused to play defense and he’s through on goal, takes the ball wide, rounds the keeper (who shouldn’t have come out) and instead of squaring it to me, 8 yards out (on-side) he elects to bend the ball with the outside of his foot for a throw in.
Next time I’m on the ball I had two options, play a 1-2 with him or send our striker through. I didn’t think I could squeeze the ball in so I shaped to make that pass and then played him short and called for the return pass. Acres of room, 30 yds out and I miscontrol the pass. I get closed on, wriggle out of it, miss an opportunity to play the striker through and then miss an opportunity to play through Mr. shoot for a throw in but work my way to the edge of the box shift it onto my right shape to shoot and then switch to my left and send a laser about a foot wide. And then the asshole berates me for “missing too many clear cut chances.” I wanted to go Keano vs Håland on his ass. Anyway we lost. Pissed.
Good luck with attempting to play an organised imtramural soccer game. Just like yourself, before and ht, we talk about formation and subs and tactics, then all that s••• goes out the window once the whistle starts. I feel yah there.
From my experience in playing imtramural, playing posession football like Barca goes out the door. The pitch is way too narrow and since there are subs every 5 minutes that puts an unqualified players in the middle.
Biggest gripe! When my (I am the team captain) team is losing, no matter how much yell or stress this, we go into all forward 2-3-5 attack and of course that clogs the box and sets us up for a perfect counter.
playing possession football requires 4 things.
If you have even mediocre amounts of 1, 2 and 4 from most of the team and one guy with great 3, it can work - especially against bums. But I suppose the other things you need are composure and buy-in. It boggles the mind how people seem to hate to pass the ball sideways and then move, but have no problem kicking the ball forward to a 1 on 4 if the guy controls the wild pass and then chase it down there.
Every time someone does that I want to punch a baby.
agree. Where you charaterize composure and patience as part of your 1-4s? Control? I guess it part of vision. It is hard to play and have trust to put a regular joe to play a scholes xavi role. That position is so key in possion footy that also requires all 1-4s and cannot lack, maybe with exception to 3 as you added.
In imtramural, Since the pitch is small and narrow, there is always constant pressing. And since we rotate and sub in frequently, i often have unqualified players in the middle.
I prefer when teams press hard, easier to tire them out with 3 or 4 nothing passes, then stand on ball and marvel at what you've done
composure isn't in my 1-4. To me, the 1-4 is about individual ability. While composure/patience could also be characterized as individual skillls, they require your teammates to have it too for it to work. For eg. Rio and VDS are the 2 most composed players at their position perhaps in the world. That makes everyone around them better, calmer and more composed. Vidicbauer (the guy who tries to play like he's a football god) is almost never around when those two are. When you add Scholes and Carrick to the mix and Berbatov up front, the capability of our team to stop, take a breath and not do rash things is ratcheted up several notches.
I also think your coach/captain/metronome (eg Scholes) is the one that instills composure in your team. When I dropped into midfield, our composure jumped from scared stupid clearances to 1-2s, passing and moving - like a different team. We see the same thing when a Xavi or Scholes is introduced but their impact has to do with how influential they are as a person eg charisma, forcefulness and their authority. I had no authority on that team so it only worked so long as people were happy - whether it was better or not was irrellevant.
johno hogs the ball!
