This works with our midfielders on two different aspects. We have our midfield 3 in the middle in green with 2 wide players

Coach asks green team to play for the switch of play to the wide players & the other team to try and play forward to the end players when they win it..

We have 5v3 in possession & players inside can rotate/move freely but are encouraged to maintain shape/balance. When ball is lost team must stop the other team from playing forward.
