Introduction of pressure - Game Related 3 v 1 to improve where and when to run with the ball.

Set up - 5 attackers 2 defenders. 3 attackers start with the ball as the def enters end zone they need to work the opportunity for an attacker to exploit space and break into other end zone to repeat. If def wins the ball they swap with player who loses the ball.

P - Allow 2nd def to tackle in the middle ( they must start on far line if they stand to close to deny space )

1.Indentify the space either for yourself or teammate ( quick play to exploit the space )

2.Create space for yourself or a teammate

3.Support play ( be a good teammate )

4.Exploit the space by running with the ball ( when and where )

Why do we exploit the space ? Break lines... Commit players and to gain an advantage and create overloads.

Ind - Decide when is best to pass and when to dribble with the ball

Exploit space as quickly as possible

What is stoping you from doing any of the above, and how will you know when to do it ?

SSG - Can we now bring nights training into random practice.( as cose to game as possible )

Hopefully play a 7v7 as games tomorrow at Charlton are this format

Expolit space when the opportunity is there. If there is a chance to exploit the space and player doesnt do it the ball will go to the other team. will then ask the individual why they didnt do it. Could be that they dont feel confident at that area of the game in which ill ask them to have a go and be brave.
