Organisation:

-1/2 pitch with line of cones down the middle of the pitch to work both left and right sides separately.

- the DM can play both in left and right sides

-collection of balls by 1/2 line (it will be the starting point from the coach player-black)

-5 defenders (2cbs, 2fbs, 1dm) - reds + gk (green),

-4 attackers (2cfs, 2amcs) - blues,

-1 feeder Coach (black),

Instructions:

2 teams compete. The defenders attempt to win the ball back or deny opportunities to score, retain possession and score by passing the ball back to the coach. The attackers attempt to score in goal.

1- The coach plays a ball out from the centre circle. Preferably to an attacking midfielder.

2- The coach then works with the defensive unit to understand how to pressure the players and how the unit performs.

The Coach starts the play by passing the ball to the right AMC. The players on the left are not in play and there is no switching of play. The Coach works with the right defensive unit first. The DM can play on both the left and the right side. Once the play is finished the coach then passes the ball to the left AMC and the play is mirrored.

Key Points:

Trigger to start play is the ball kicked to recieving player by the coach, not to defend too deep and make sure the goalkeeper is alert to sweep around the back of defenders for any through balls, no switching of play, realistic areas of play,the defenders (back four) starting point half way between the edge of the D or the area to the centre circle edge, defenders on the shoulders of the attackers but not too tight to attackers, DM stops the ball from going to the CF'S.Communication between defenders, distances between defenders equal (compactness) and good angles and good support, FB body 1/2 turned showing the CF/AMC inside the screening DM or CB (when the ball is outside the edge of the 18yard line), function mirrored left and right.The pressure applied to the ball initially by the screening player then the defenders, decision making when and where to win the ball or hold or show the attackers inside onto the centre half, be patient, recovery runs and tracking, hold and jockey for position to win the ball.
