Coaching points

Decision Making

Do you decide to let the team come out of defence and flood the midfield, in order to win the ball and play into attacking zone, Do you press high and pressure defenders and attack straight away in the final 3rd, or do you sit off and be compact and allow the team no where to go and pull them out of position. In order to spring counter attack.
