Current shape

Apapting our current formation to a "false 9"

This is our current 1-4-3-3 formation.

What we are aiming is to provide better midfield cover for long balls, and create a 4v3 overload in midfield.

This will make it easier to win the ball and retain possesion in midfield.

It will mean an increased workload on the 9 & 10, as in transition they will have to cover

more ground.

This should decrease the possiblility of the opposition 10 getting between our lines, as we always have the 6 to cover.

BPO position

Change to BPO position.

This is how we change to our new BPO formation.

9 will drop back centrally between our midfield and the two wingers.

This will leave their 3& 4 with no one to mark - they will have to make a choice.

If they push an extra player into the midfield and play with a back 3, it will create openings for us.

If they sit back it will leave us with a 4v3 overload in the midfield.

10 will drop back opposite 8, with 6 to drop centrally in front of 3 & 4.

How the formation should look

This is our "false 9" 1-4-3-1-2 formation

When we win the ball in midfield we still look to play to our wide players, 7 or 11, or an overlapping 2 or 5.

They may have to hold up play to create an angle if support is not in position.

7 and 11 can take on a player 1v1, but only if there is space behind the player. If 3 or 4 is covering behind, look to draw the opposition players over to that side and then quickly switch play.

Try to islolate the opposite winger 1v1 with a quick switch.

If nothing is on maintain possesion - do not play into traffic.

Remember it is OK to play backwards to maintain possesion, change the angle of attack and reload again.

Transition BPO>BP

When we win the ball in midfield. Transition from BPO>BP

In transition 9 to make a diagonal run forward - 3 or 4 will have to track that run.

10 to make a run into space, 8 to run diagonally to the top of the box for a cut back.

6 to hold and not overcommit, so we have cover in transition if we loose the ball.

Back 4 to push to the half way line.

7 & 11 look to cut back to hit either of these 3 players, or cut in drive to goals if 3 & 4 caught out of position.
