2008-05-27T13:06:00.000-04:00

Pushing the goalie forward for the tie in the MLS is a good decision when down a single goal. Goal difference in the MLS is the 2nd tie-breaker for playoffs. The 1st being head to head, meaning it is more important to get 1 point for the tie than none for the loss.

You don't see scores like this more often because you need something really stupid to happen like the losing team to head

AA - I'm not certain, but I think in some hockey leagues (possibly the NHL included) it's illegal to send a new goaltender onto the ice during play. At the very least, I've never seen it attempted, and I could have sworn I've heard mention of the rule once. Not sure it would matter, anyway - there's no way a goalie in all that gear is getting back in time, and it's not illegal for one of your

2008-05-27T10:30:00.000-04:00

It does work at times, it is not a common practice, and of course, like hockey, you leave yourself open to a long counter attack. But it does give you a body advantage on a corner. And no, the goalie will not likely get back into the net, that's why it's used when time is about to expire. It's a last ditch effort, much like the Hail Mary or the half court buzzer beater. When it works, it's

This is the ultimate moment in the history of having your keeper go forward.

2008-05-26T18:45:00.000-04:00

Good point Steve, and the MLS standings definitely work that way.

The whole thing just seems like a bad idea to me. It's one thing if it's the last play of the game, but with a good bit of time left on the clock it seems dumb. Even on a corner kick, one extra guy isn't going to help all that much....he's really just taking up space and/or pushing someone else out of the box.

2008-05-26T17:56:00.000-04:00

I don't know much about soccer, so take this as more of a question than a defense of AA's original comment.

Don't some soccer leagues determine ties by goals scored or goals against? If that is the case then taking out your goalie there, makes it a bit riskier than in hockey...along with the %'s jay pointed out.

2008-05-26T17:39:00.000-04:00

seems pointless in soccer?
so it's okay to lose by a goal, instead of doing something to tie the game and maybe win?
good point awful, just sit there and accept the loss. LOL
let me guess -- you like old school coaches like Chuck Noll, Sparky Anderson, and Red Auerbach.
instead of original thinkers who progress the game.

2008-05-26T16:57:00.000-04:00

Kicking a ball 60 yards like that is pretty impressive, especially seeing as he was not lined up with the net. Sweet goal.

2008-05-26T15:43:00.000-04:00

Am I the only one that wasn't impressed?

It's an empty net hockey type of goal on NHL 2007 guys.

As long as you just get a little bit of lift on the ball and some power you're in.

Come on, you would've scored if you had the chance.

2008-05-26T15:22:00.000-04:00

Plus, if you look at it mathematically, it's a better play in hockey than in soccer.

In hockey, you go from 5 skaters to 6, a 20% increase in players on the ice. In soccer, going from 11 to 12 is only a 9% increase in players on the field.

2008-05-26T14:04:00.000-04:00

I guess for corner kicks it makes sense but in hockey you have the chance to get back on the ice and in goal. There's no way a goalie is getting back in the net in Soccer.

Anon- Dave O'Brien is def out, but ESPN hasn't released the rest of the announcing schedule as of yet.

2008-05-26T13:42:00.000-04:00

Does anyone know if J.P. Dellacamera is going to be doing work during Euro 2008 or will they stick with Derek Rae? While I prefer Dellacamera, Derek Rae is fine. But if I ever hear Dave O'Brien call another soccer game....

2008-05-26T13:36:00.000-04:00

AA, it's the exact same concept in soccer as hockey, except it's not done as often (usually if there is a corner kick or deep possession). Down a goal, in extra time (usually no more than a minute or two remaining), it's a sound strategy when you need a tie.

2008-05-26T12:44:00.000-04:00

You bring your goalkeeper down to get an extra man on a corner kick in extra time when you need one goal.

For a far better Beckham goal from similar distance, type Beckham Wimbeldon into Youtube.

2008-05-26T12:43:00.000-04:00

LOL .. Yeah, I was going to say they pull the goalie for the same reason hockey teams do. For the man advantage. But, I was going to say it without be quite as assholish as anon. ;-)

2008-05-26T12:33:00.000-04:00

so i guess you don't understand why hockey teams take out their goalie for an extra attacker when down a goal at the end of the game either.
it's a pretty simple concept.
