10 balls you can play from midfield

-

Struggling for ideas on what you can do in the centre of midfield? Fear no more. Here’s 10 ways the stars of the A-League play themselves out of midfield. 

1. Burger ‘n’ Flies: The McFlynn – Your first touch puts the ball three metres ahead of you and your second is a tackle to retrieve it.

2. Portaloo – The Eric Paartalu – Pass the ball sideways or backwards to ensure your 99.7% pass completion rate remains intact.

3. Olé olé olé: The Alé – Retrieve ball, attach to feet with superglue, round four players, get tackled and win a freekick.

4. Chocolate present: The Ferreira – Miss-time a long ball, swear loudly, get evicted by Hindmarsh security.

5. Dirty: The Sanchez Play an okay pass, move to an okay position, score an okay goal.

6. Here’s a killer: The Liam Miller – Pass it to bloody Smeltzy.

7. Move over logic: The Tom Rogic – Pick ball up and add it to your check-in luggage for your flight to Scotland.

8. Messy: The Marco Rojas – Round every player, head down the wing, choose between an assist or a goal, then defect to a bigger club.

9. Call me Percy: The Van Hersi – Find your man with a decent through-ball, receive card for dissent/foul/tackle.

10. More than a fad. The Zad Lad – Shoot
