Weight of the pass: The quality of a pass based on the power with which it is made in relation to the movement and position of the player meant to receive it. Example: If a pass is made to a player in mid-stride, and it is so timed that the recipient player meets the ball without breaking strike, it is said to be a well-weighted pass. "what a load of rubbish": Popular derisory exclamation or chant made by fans in response to the quality of play which is not to their liking. "wide player": Player whose role is to play, or who is typified by playing, on the flanks or wings. "wing-back": Player whose role is to play on either flank of the defence. If you're stumped at the difference between back-play and back-heel, or ever wondered what players refer to as a banana kick, the SBS Dictionary of Soccer will set you on the way to a fuller understanding of the game. Organised in A to Z format, the dictionary will contain prominent and common phrases used in soccer, making it perfect for novices or those seeking a fuller understanding of the jargon used by commentators. Written by Les Murray, the authority on soccer in Australia, the book will contain some subjective and light-hearted references, but will none the less be a comprehensive reference tool.
