Does strength of foot affect defenders when tackling?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this makes sense but my left footed (anthony gardner) never seems to win the ball when playing RCB.

I've wondered about this many times recently. I think it helps to have a mixture. You could arrange them both on their strongest side, for example:

Right footed - RCB

Left footed - LCB

This would force the opposition wide but could possibly be a weakness through the centre.

Right footed - LCB

Left footed - RCB

I'm guessing that its the opposite to the first, The defenders would be very strong and tight through the middle but space may be exploited between the 'Center Defenders' and the 'Fullbacks'.

I'l' try to do some testing on this soon.
