Q. How do certain players always manage to find so much space on a football pitch?

A. They keep checking their shoulders.

Frank Lampard was an expert at finding space, click here for a short clip which demonstrates just how he managed it. It's a great video and a good watch for any young player, particularly those playing in midfield areas where the pitch is often very busy.
