 Long throws
Topic Originator: livipar2  
Date:   Sat 24 Apr 22:13

Are we the only team in the Championship that doesn’t have someone who can hurl it into the six yard box from miles out?

I think we have generally defended that threat pretty well until today. The defending of Murray and Mayo was about the only highlight of that wretched Cup game in Greenock.

Mon the Pars!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a good weapon to have. Surely one of these players can propel it into the six yard box from a throw? If not, get practicing. Can be like a corner but from a deeper position.

Yeh totally agree, think Edwards could probably bring that into the game if his throws down the line are anything to go by.

Always mind when Rhys McCabe was here, AJ didnt realise he could take a long throw in till one day in training he took a quick throw in and it went miles down the line !!

If I was in charge I would have them all doing long throws to see who does it the best and get them working on it. Tbh they probably do that. It's a useful tactic to employ, the flight of the ball always seems hard to defend against. That lad Strapp at Morton takes a good one. We need a Mark Haro type.
I'll tell you what though, the way the game is being Americanised, Id imagine in 20 years from now they will have rolling subs, and you will get long throw experts coming on to take one and then go back off at the next break in play. Same sort of thing with free kick specialists and penalty spot kings

I said this months ago on the forum!! It should be major part of our attacking weaponry.
Also, I think any, free kicks in the oppositions half should always be swung forward goalwards. Not tippytapped to someone standing a foot away.

For those who think like that, watch again our 2nd goal yesterday - just saying ;-)

Aye first thing that came to my mind when he lumped it. The difference was though he took his time and looked up saw the run O'Hara was making and then lumped it up. Not this hit and wish piddle we had previously

could argue the 1st was fairly similar too !!

its Scottish football at end of the day, no one passes it to a midfielder who drives and dribbles with the ball 40 yards or plays a killer pass from the half way line. For example Henderson runs and dribbles with the ball when he is around 35 yards from the goaline, he ain't and never will do it from 10 yards inside his own half.

If Michael O`Neill and Arsene Wenger get their way, the long throw will be banned. (Stupid idea, IMO!)

There was talk of UEFA experimenting with an indirect free kick instead of a throw-in, on the grounds that football should be what it says on the tin. Anyone know if that was ever tried?

What happens if a long throw goes into the net. Is it a goal or a bye kick to the defending team? I remember many years ago we scored from a free kick but as it was not a direct one the referee told us to take it again, it was then stopped by the assistant referee that the end result was for a bye kick. He obviously unlike the ref had read the rules book!

if ball isn't touched from the throw in and goes into the goal it's a goal kick. Pretty simple rule.

I think in the early days of football thrown-ins could be bowled in one handed. Since this was clearly against the spirit of a game called football, the two handed throw was introduced to place the emphasis on control of the ball.

I`m with Wenger this issue. A quick, long throw down the line to a player on the run is an exciting part of football, but a long throw heaved into a crowded penalty area is more rugby than football.

Rhys McCabe and Mark Haro were the best I have seen in 58 years of supporting the Pars.

I would struggle to add to my list.

Bringing Rhys back may not be so daft.

Why are such players a rarity at East End Park,as so many clubs playing us seem to offer such a threat?

Did Ivo Den Beeman not throw a decent distance. I remember the chant Ivo Ivo etc, when he got the ball.
