Screen 1

Some thoughts on this formation.

1. Gives additional "lines" in both attack & defence.

2. Passing triangles all over the pitch (options for the player in possession).

3. Allows the team to be centrally compact.

4. Easy to slot into a midfield 4.

With the blue in possession in the shaded area, the Red 9 presses to try to stop the forward pass.

Red 10 would position between the passer and the first centre half to try to force a hasty clearance or back pass to the keeper.

The "Diamond" stays intact but moves across the pitch to condense the space.

The back 4 shuffle across to keep the distances between the units compact.

The GK sweeps behind the back 4.

Screen 3

With the Reds building an attack from the middle of the pitch, both 2 & 3 can push forward as 4 will sit and protect and can cover if there is a counter attack down the flanks.
