Unorthodox football tactics
would this actually be legal tactics when a team really needs to score a goal?
you would probably have to resort to this only in the last minute of the game, because you would piss off the other team so badly, and it is quite easily replicated.
1) Get enough players to surround the ball , either at the foot, knee or chest level. Then hop the ball into the goal.
To organise this, you probably need your opponent to not close down your players while organising. So it will only work if they are not intent on closing down the ball (such as Chelsea this week maybe)
2) Apply a patch of contact cement on one of your players' shin. Pass the ball to the player inside the penalty area and let him run the ball into the goal.
It will instantly be noticed by the opponents, so you would have to do it at short range. It will have to be done in the last minute of the game, since you don't want the ball stuck to your players' shin, and the player has to be a substitution (he can't run around for 90 minutes with the cement).
Are they within the laws of the game?
