You must've played yourself a bit? Surely you can understand the difference between someone who has a good weight of pass or not? It's appreciation of space, and knowing whether to zip it into feet, or to stroke it into someone's path.
Yeah i get it I just mean, like how robust is it as an observation?
Like - I like how Calvert-Lewis runs, I think he looks smooth in his movements and can accelerate like a sprinter, but none of that is very robust as an observation about why he’s a good player.
I like how Tosun scores different sorts of strikes, but it’s not like a real thing is it. Part of it will be personal bias, part of it will be aesthetics, part of it will be confirmation bias. Put a number on how weighty the pass was out of weightyness and tell me why it’s insightful and I could buy into it, other wise it just feels like nice stylistic fluff.
Not saying it’s not important, just yeah, might not be very tangible.
