    tackles - get caught out

    Dear all,

    In the field of football, what is the meaning of the highlighted words in:

    ""In Merseyside Derby there’s a lot of into it, everyone flying into tackles and everything and if you’re not ready for that you’re going to get caught out again"

    "everyone" refer to "footballers"

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: tackles - get caught out

    Flying into tackles means aggressively challenging for the ball.

    Get caught out is not specifically a football idiom. The author probably means something like 'come off worst'.
