Liverpool And Long Balls | The Stats Show by The Anfield Wrap | Feb 7, 2020 | app, The Stats Show, Video | 1 comment Neil Atkinson takes a look at the statistics from StatsBomb surrounding Liverpool and their use of long balls. 1 Comment Billy Murphy on 7 February 2020 at 7:19 pm Excellent show as always. I like street fighter in the background as the nimble neurons of Aitko do battle, and analyse and illuminate Big Sam Allardyce’s dull comment. Is it not also a strategy Liverpool have adapted to in order to counter teams that park the bus, a problem that Liverpool were / are encountering quite a lot. Get a bigger pitch, draw the other team out, make the spaces in their half a bit bigger, and then get in behind them and maximize the impact of players with pace. And, How many passses are direct and how many are attacking players running on to, most would be direct i imagine. Anyway, Its called adaptation in some quarters. Allardyce should stick to being England Manager, oh dear. ( Why can you only comment if you’re logged out ?
