Consider: in possession
Primary player/unit: 3,6,5,2
Secondary unit; team: 1,4,8
Specific area of pitch: defensive half
What do I want my players to achieve?
Does it relate to match day?
- Yes most teams we play against usually press high and try to win the ball in the attacking or midfield third.
Principle of play - attacking: penetration, create space, movement, support
Technical component - passing, receiving
What are the game related pictures I want to recreate?
Opposition are compact centrally when the ball is at our goalkeeper or centre backs, when the ball is passed to our full back positions (2 or 3), the opposition winger presses the ball and their midfield locks on to ours.
Full back drops all back to centre back who switches play to opposite full back passing the ball into space in front of them to run onto exploiting the weak side
Defensive playmaker number 4 creates space to receive a pass from full-back however cannot play forward and therefore drops ball back to centre back on strong side to switch play in one or two touches to opposite fullback.
What detail will help the player improve their understanding and performance?
Area layout and size:
Players per team: 8v6 overload
Tempo and timings: 3x15 minute game blocks to swap out midfielders and attacker with opposition.
