What constitutes being good in the air?


The Exaltation of the Flower
“‘Good in the air’ – a stock football phrase that everyone understands. But it’s more complex than simply being ‘good’. This article from ZM in 2010 suggested that, whilst Peter Crouch often looks clumsy and awkward when trying to head the ball, his height meant that he was still a threat in the air. That sums up the fact that being ‘good in the air’ is dependent upon a variety of factors, and players can be ‘good in the air’ in different ways.” Zonal Marking
