The BLC is a very special goal, I'd work on those curled shots instead. For the BLC you have to be very close to the line or it won't work (not-PBDers will have trouble lining up perfectly). Then you have to get the chip right and I don't know about you, but I mess it up too often (balls just rolls ahead or is chipped the opposite way). And you'll have to head it, too. Go to Ostersund and visit John there, I hear he's quite adapt at BLCs... The curled shot is the easier option for beginners to work with.
One more note (thanks, Robert, for conveying this to me in Groningen) about #2. Players actually have to run into their position first. Trap the ball in different parts of the pitch and watch on the radar where your players are moving. If you try #2 directly, which is, after recovering the ball near your own goal and booting it out to the winger and directly try to cross it in - your striker just won't be there for the header, he'll still be running up the pitch. If you, however, trap the ball and wait, it'll work. Practice mode really is great for trying this out. Play the ball back to your defenders, then play it out quickly to the wings, trap the ball when you are in a good position for such a cross - and wait two seconds.
I remember Alkis' goal tutorial, I might have it somewhere. But you had to watch it in KO2 itself using the replay function, a video would be better of course.
