Creating and Scoring - delivery from wide areas in attacking third (overload)
Primary player: #7 and 11
Primary unit: #7, 9, 10, 8, 11
Secondary unit: #2 and 3
Specific area of pitch: Attacking third
What do I want my players to achieve? Does it relate to match day? Principle of play?
- Recognise the delivery areas of:
- Recognise the type of pass for:
What are the game related pictures I want to recreate?
Are these pictures relevant to learning outcomes?
Picture 1) Full back plays to winger who attacks the goal line in a wide position and delivers a cross to supporting attackers
Picture 2) Fullback plays ball to winger and makes an underlapping or overlapping run depending on wingers touch and position, recieves return pass from wingers and full back attacks the goal line in a wide position and delivers a cross to supporting attackers
Picture 3) Full back plays inside to Central Midfielder who plays forward (1 or 2 touches) into space for winger to attack the goal line who delivers a cross to supporting attackers.
What detail will help the player improve their understanding and performance?
- Full back to recognise where first touch of winger will take them (inside for full back overlap or down the line for full back underlap)
Recognise the change in personal attacking the areas. If #10 drops in to receive ball from full bac for example, would you have rotation where #4 would make the forward run in place of #10? And #10 would hold in #4 position during this phase of attack?
Area layout and size: Approx 50x70yards
Other considerations: Overload 1-3-2-3 vs 1-2-3-1
Scoring system: Team with 7 goals count as 2. Team of 9 goals scored from a cross count as 2, normal goals 1
Players per team: 9v7
LEAD IN ACTIVITY - Focus on movement to receive ball into feet or into space to link to winger movement later in session.
TECHNICAL practice working simultaneously attacking each end. Player who crosses will rotate to other side. So effectively full backs and wingers will work with different partners.
Technical practice to pose questions to wingers on when, where, how and why they may select a certain type of cross over another. i.e near post, second 6 yard box, far post, edge of area - more information in Small Sided Game session plan below.
