THE THEORY OF THE THRU BALL

Football and Life, So many things in common. Now lets discuss the thru ball.

The “Thru Ball” is a brilliant pass that splits defences. The striker is set clear with only one job left and that is to FINISH and score.

Now there is the PASSER and the PASSEE. The PASSER is obviously the creator and playmaker. The man that has a blinder, is on a roll. His vision is second to none and he can “Cheer the Thru Ball” with deft touches, amazing flicks, long range passes and even a slight touch. What a player, and PUN on the word player.

Now the PASSEE is obviously the man that accepts the Thru ball and has the onus and responsinility to FINISH and score the goal. Whether he scores or misses, In the end he can always say he was given a through ball.

Now What is the Theory of The Thru Ball?

When your midfielder or passer gives you a phone number, contact, introduction to the badaam, pisat or member of the opposite sex and tells you “Go Partner. Go for it .Its yours. I dont mind. Phone her and take her out. I set it up”. Then you have been given the Thru Ball.

Now the Thru ball can be given differently and in many ways. But the fundamental Rule is that Once you have been GIVEN THE THRU BALL, You have permission from the PASSER, No stealing, no ethical barriers. You have his blessing.

Lets face it, In life today sometimes the midfielder still has the ball and the striker tackles his own player, Slide tackles him and takes him out. Then there is tension, friendships break etc.

But when you have been given the Thru Ball, All you have to do is finish.

There are some rules though that govern this theory. I always loved playing in the tri-quaresta, In the hole behind the front two. And I supplied he he.

But here are the important rules. Or f#4k it. There is just one.

“WHEN YOU GIVE THE THRU BALL, DONT WAIT FOR THE RETURN PASS, OR DONT RUN NEXT TO THE MAN AND SCREAM PASS, PASS. YOU GAVE THE THRU BALL , LET THE MAN SCORE. DONT ALSO GIVE THE THRU BALL THEN TRY TO DRIBBLE YOUR OWN STRIKER AND AS I SAID ,SOMETIMES EVEN SLIDE TACKLE HIM”

Be a supplier and a great midfilder and once you send the pass, Walk to the center line.

How many times, sometimes a guy gives the thru ball, but he still fones the chick, he still takes her out, he still dribbles. Hey if thats the case, rather score yourself from 5o yards out.

    The person who gives the thru ball should walk far behind his own goalie.
    But today he still hovers around.
    or still passes by for a quickie or two.

    Well said Swoosh

    To me the guys that play the through ball and wait for the return pass are never team players

    They just do it so it seems like they part of the team

    I remember alot of them, they however choose to forget it
