Zone 2 attack

This Diagram represents the 3 areas of rotational attacking possibilities and the 5 areas of defensive consolodation.

Secifically; displayed here is a zone 2* attacking focus where the ball has been played directly through zone 2.

In this situation with a flat 8 and 10 the areas of rotational attacking possibilities are reduced and the areas for defensive consolodation are increaced.

This leads to a more structured focus in midfeild possession.

However it also increaces opportunity of a direct pass to the 9 from three to four as well as increacing the availability of the 8 from four to five.

*zone 2 is represented by the white cones

Zone 2 attack + full backs

Same as previous with a zone 2 through zone 2 attack.

However this time the full back 'joining in' is considered.

For the 2 to get forward; the 8 drops to cover, 10 shifts right and the 4 drifts left.

Need to consider the 7 and 11's movement here also.

Notice that the 4 and 8's aventues of pass into midfield have been reduced/removed. The 10 should not be looking to receive the ball to feet with a disorganised defense. The 8's 'out ball' if options are reduced is the 11 or 7 in behind, who should have sufficient support from the 10.
