B) Back four combine neat and quick patterns of play with the two CM's. If coach shouts "long." CB clips the ball into his hands, if "turn" then CM gets on the half turn and plays into coach, if "Feet" the Full-backs play into his feet.

Team Shape: In Possession

When the team has possession of the ball the attacking concept needs to be simple. The basic attacking principles are; Spread out to make the field as wide as possible & Push high to make the field as long as possible.

If the team is able to achieve this when in possession of the ball it will with quick quality ball possession stretch the opposition team & also make them vunerable to penertrating passes.

Player/Unit Responsabilities:

GK - The goalkeeper must act as a sweeper & be confident to push up to the edge of the area. This will enable the keeper to pick up/clear and intercept any potential through passes & balls over the top from the opposition.

R/LCD - The central defenders must push up the field when the team is in possession. When we have possession in the attacking half the central defenders should be close to the center circle. This will make sure any lazy attackers on the opposition are caught offside & are out of play, but will also help to compact the field incase we lose the ball.

R/LD - The right & left back's play a crucial role when the team is in possession. They must be confident to push high & wide up the field to become secondary wide midfielders. Possession is circulated & switched to these players to help stretch the opposition as well as encouraging the wide forwards ahead of them to push forward and inside.

R/LCM - In possession we want to encourage one central midfielder to support the attack from behind, while the other holds off incase of quick break aways from the opposition. It is important that these players have quick minds & quick feet to distribute the ball wide but also forward & through the opposition.

ACM - The attacking central midfielder needs to take up positions between the opposition midfielders and defenders to help the team "break lines" when passing forward & through. The attacking midfielder also needs to push forward to support the other forwards inside the box & also have a creative mind to look for killer passes through the opposition.

R/LF - The right & left forwards need to keep the field as wide & long as possible. Try to stay in a wide position to receive the ball to feet, but also receive a through ball behind the opposition right/left backs. The wide players are not only expected to get down the line & cross but to also come inside to join attacks in the box.

CF - The central forward needs to be two things: 1) A platform to build attacks: hold the ball up & layoff/link up with team mates and 2) A finisher inside/around the box. The central forward must have an eye for goal and be able to finish with a number of different techniques.
