Role of the #9

Role of the #9 (Striker)

Bend run in a way to force the back outside. Exaggerate the run so the only and most sensable option for the back with the ball is to play it wide. "Take away half of the field". Taking away half the field is a priority before trying to win the ball.

The 9 should always trying to anticipate, and looking for, a back to pass back to the GK's feet. A smart and quick striker will get several goals by either intercepting a poorly weighted pass to the GK, or blocking a panicked kick from a GK under pressure. I've also created many own goals with pass backs to an unsuspecting GK.

Role of the #11 and/or #7

As the ball is played to the outside back the #9 continues to pressure and force the play wide, and screening any pass back to the center backs. After the #9 initiates the press....

Role of the #11 (and/or #7)

The #11 bends a pressuring run and forces the player with the ball back inside toward the #9. It is vital that the #11 is aware of any outside player, and pressures inside from an angle that screens any outlet pass to that outside player.

This pressure forces the back into the midfield where there is more traffic/players/opportunity to win the ball. This also forces the play towards the goal. In many cases you are also forcing that outside back onto their weaker foot.

Role of the #7 (and/or #11)

The #7 moves inside to screen any opportunity of a switch in play to the opposite back, either directly or through a combination if the back with the ball breaks the initial press.

Role of the #10, #8, and #6

As the #9 and #11 initiate the press...

Roles of the midfield 3

The #10 (offensive midfielder) and the #8 (center midfielder) screen any passing opportunies to go forward, bending their run to do so, and begin squeezing space toward the player with the ball.

You want your #10 to be more aggressive to the player in possession and try to win the ball if possible. As the #10 arrives, the #9 and #7 become more aggressive in trying to regain possession. A back pass to the GK is often played at this point. The #9 must be aware and anticipate the possibility.

You want your #8 screening passing lanes, in direct cover of your #10, and ready to tackle should the back in possession beat the press off the dribble.

You want your #6 to stay connected to the #8 and #10, and screen the direct pass to the highest player of the team in possession, usually thier striker.

As the midfielders join in the press...

Role of the Back 4

The back 4 must stay connected to the midfield and compact the field. The backs should stay tight to any high players and be ready to intercept a pass, challenge, or apply immediate pressure should the press get broke.

Since the backs can see everything in front of them, communicating to the other players in volved in the press is very important. I usually demand one of my center backs to head the communication, but all backs should be vocal with instruction.

At this point your #1 (Goal Keeper) should be stepping forward, looking to quickly get to any ball played over the back four.
