Football Problem

We are not creating enough opportunities from wide areas when we can't attack centrally.

Session Objective

If we can't attack centrally, can we quickly get the ball wide for crosses into the box to create goal scoring opportunities

When

We can't attack through the middle but wide options are available

Who

Us - 9,7,11,10, 8,6,2,5.

Why

To create goalscoring opportunities from wide areas when we can't attack through the middle.

Set Up

Create a field 40x40 with a 3 metre wide zone on either side and a halfway line. Try to ensure wide players (#7,11,2,5) occupy wide areas

How to Play

Each team aims to transfer their ball from one half to the other but this can only be done through a wide zone.

Set up with a midfield 3 (#6 #8 #10) and wide players (#7 #11) in own half and #9 in other half. Once ball is transferred to opposite GK start the play the other way so two midfielders have to follow ball into other half while one stays and acts as a #9.

Play starts from the GK/Neutral player who plays into one of the midfielders.

Wide players start in the same half and have to dribble over half way or run on to a through ball and finish with a cross for ST or MF to play in to GK/Neutral player.

Progressions

- can we have an over or under lapping player

- play directly into other half for first time ball to wide player

Positional Game (15 mins)

Set Up

Create two pitches 15 x 20m with a halfway line and a mini goal at each end. Use cones to create two gates on the halfway line. Play 4 v 2.

Place extra balls around the area.

How to Play

The team of 4 score by transfering the ball from one half to the other through a gate. The team of 2 score in the mini goal in the half in which they won possession.

The team of 4 must have a player in each half at all times.

Progressions

Remove the line between the grids and play 8 v 4.

Player Tasks

- If you can't hurt them wide can you switch play quickly?

- Can you overlap or underlap the player in possession or support behind the ball?

- If you can't dribble past your opponent can you drive or pass inside?

- Can you pass through the gate into your team mates path?

Set Up

Use half a pitch with two 12m wide zones and reduce the pitch length by 10m. Have extra balls near the halfway line.

7 & 11 - Can you be in a goal scoring position if the cross is coming from the opposite side?
