  • What does “get their feed on the ball” mean?

    Brighton finally get their feet on the ball for a few passes in a row, which could do them the world of good. Nothing came of it, and it was still only a relatively short time in possession, but it was their longest yet

    I sometimes hear commentators say “big/huge/massive goal/header”, what does “big/huge/massive” mean in football?

    Big header from Gabriel. Our centre back climbs high inside the area and the ball floats toward the far post, but bounces back off the bar with the keeper beaten

    • Dwi!

      Wow – you have lots of good questions.

      Get your feet on the ball, means get control of the ball, control the play.

      A big/massive header or goal etc. means an important goal, header, tackle, clearance etc.
