StrandedHound It looks even more risky now the keeper doesn’t have to play it outside of his area
I’m a big defender of playing out from the back but even for me it looks too much
It looks too much as it is new and you need to get used to it. Back passes always looked risky when that rule first came in.
Possibly true. I get the idea to create as much space as possible in the midfield, and in theory it sounds good, but they were literally passing it across their own 6 yard box - absolutely no margin for error.
