View Full Version : Lots of throw ins simply thrown towards opposition

24-01-2009, 22:06
Especially prevalent if in my own half of the pitch. The taker simply throws it semi-long forwards, where it ends up intercepted / headed by one of the other side and never reaching the intended teammate (who seems to be moving away from the ball more often than not, as if he expects the ball to fall in exactly into his run).

Anybody notice this? Anything I can do to prevent this?

Yeah it really gets on my nerves too, I don't think anything can be done about it :(

its really annoying when a highlight comes up and you have a throw in near your own box because you know this is going to lead to a chance for the other team.

the only good thing is that it happens for me just as much as it happens against me.

have you tried using different throw-in methods ??
or are you just leaving it on the default setting of mixed ?

I've left it on mixed. But I want to have it mixed, I just don't want the throw-in to be gifted if it's taken from around my box... It just seems to happen a bit too often (to me as well as to the opposition)

Yeah this was an issue last year as well...I really want it fixed.

I'm in full favour of the OP here. It seems especially prevalent when taken from my own half by my full backs.
But they're Arseholes anyway, so it's all good :(
