I’ve become obsessed by the crossbar

dc1The crossbar challenge seems to be taking me over. I’ve started to get my teams to do it, the younger ones with their heads as I throw the ball to them on the penalty spot, the older ones who can kick it, from the edge of the penalty area.

I watch the SoccerAM TV programme on a Saturday morning just to watch it.

I’ve even been going up to my local pitch with my sons and doing it, boys on one side of the goal me on the other…. “just one more go, just one more go”.

It is good fun and very good for your skills – it’s just weird that in matches if you hit the crossbar it’s unlucky, whereas we are all trying to do it to show how skilful we are.

The craze is right across Europe, even the Uefa website is running a competition… here’s AC Milan’s Andrea Pirlo showing off his skills with 10 shots at the bar.
