BP - Ball Possession Middle Third (Overload)

MAIN MOMENT: BP.

KEY PRINCIPLE: EFFECTIVE POSSESSION 2. CONTROLLED POSSESSION IN THE MIDDLE THIRD (EFFECTIVE BALL POSSESSION TO CREATE AN OVERLOAD WHEN ATTACKING IN OUR MIDDLE THIRD).

5W DEFINTION:

WHAT? #2, #3, #4 AND #5 SITTING DEEP AND NOT LOOKING TO GO FORWARD AND PROVIDE A NUMERICAL ADVANTAGE IN MIDFIELD WHEN PLAYING OUT FROM OUR BACK 4 TO OUR MIDFIELD.

WHO? #2, #3, #4, #5.

WHERE? IN OUR MIDDLE THIRD.

WHEN? WHEN OUR MIDFIELD HAS POSSESSION GOING FORWARD.

WHY? THIS IS A PROBLEM AS WE ARE NOT ABLE TO CONTROL POSSESSION IN THE MIDDLE THIRD AND GET THE BALL TO OUR OUR FRONT THREE IN A STRUCTURED MANNER.

SESSION OBJECTIVE: IN THIS SESSION I AIM TO IMPROVE #2, #3, #4 AND #5 MOVING FORWARD WHEN WE PLAY THE BALL OUT FROM THE BACK TO OUR MIDFIELD TO PROVIDE AN OVERLOAD WHEN PLAYING FORWARD.
