Watch the kick off in the next game

 

What usually happens is someone taps it to Bannan who just smashes it (deliberately) straight out for a throw in

Last game he switched it up. 

The ball got tapped to him so he smashes it straight to their keeper 

Either way we immediately give up possession to the opposition.


Does any other side do this?


Is this a tactic to somehow defeat some mystery illegal gambling thing going on or is it some weird Monk thing? Or is it a Barry Bannan thing?

Anyone know why we do this at every single kick off?

Backs to the wall straight from the off, kicking for touch like in rugby, holding out without conceding for as long as we can then having no answer to get back into the game. WTF: Genius Monkball MonkmanfaceTotal non football, anti total football, anti football full stop... :duntmatter::ghoulguy:

We are Trying to get it to the corner flag to run the clock down.

I think we will kick it back to Wildsmith this time and score an own goal. Monk seems like a statistician man. He probably read somewhere, that if you boot it up field at the start we get an advantage somewhere.

lol

"Girls are simply wonderful. Just to stand on a corner and watch them go past is delightful. They don't walk. At least not what we do when we walk. I don't know how to describe it, but it's much more complex and utterly delightful. They don't move just their feet; everything moves and in different directions . . . and all of it graceful."  Starship Troopers, Amen!

Our players just like us fans, can't wait for the game to end before it's even started with the torture by the tactical genius of Monkball :duntmatter:Monkmanface:ghoulguy:

Noticed this a few games ago and still can't believe we are doing it.

 

Is this play not frowned upon by coaches in the modern game now? I think we even stopped doing it when I played pub football 10 years ago because it was pointless.

 

 

 

 

 


The only possible reason I'd do it is if I had a bet on first throw in or first goal kick (not saying that's what's going on at all - just the reason that I personally would do it)


I can't think of any other possible reason why we would do this

It would only happen to our club. If tomorrow the team came out all dressed as clowns, I wouldn't bat an eyelid. I would just think it's a normal day for Sheffield Wednesday. I'm sure we're cursed.

The only time I've seen it work was playing Sunday League and our manager started with ten (despite having 5 subs) because our right back was stuck in traffic ;-)  They sent it diagonally, crossed it in and scored within about 20 seconds of the kick-off.

 

Maybe Monk heard about it and thinks he can replicate it.

We have been doing since last season, every time we do it.

 

Just says everything about Monk and his tactics.

 

Players must be sick of it.

 

 

Imagine being a player in the dressing room and the manager walks in and says "right lads this is what I want you to do today" and then goes on to say "Straight from kickoff just wang it out of play"

lol

 

Imagine hearing that as a plan from the manager as to how you were really going to win the game

As far as the throw ins go its for Territory over posession like Rugby Union. No idea why he would launch it at the keeper though as it will end up coming straight back. At least it may show up as a shot on target.

Surely we'd have more territory if we played it to Adam Reach or Kadeem Harris and they took it up the pitch?
