BP - Effective Possession 1. Structured Build Up

MAIN MOMENT: BP.

KEY PRINCIPLE: EFFECTIVE POSSESSION 1. STRUCTURED BUILD UP.

5W DEFINTION:

WHAT? NOT BEING ABLE TO PLAY FORWARD AND KEEP POSSESSION WHEN WE HAVE POSSESSION IN THE MIDDLE THIRD.

WHO? #6, #8, #10.

WHERE? IN OUR MIDDLE THIRD.

WHEN? WHEN OUR MIDFIELD RECEIVE POSSESSION FROM OUR BACK 4 WHEN WE ATTEMPT TO PLAY OUT FROM THE BACK.

WHY? THIS IS A PROBLEM AS WE ARE CONSTANTLY PLAYING BACK AND TRYING TO PLAY DIRECT BALLS TO OUR #7, #9 AND #11 WHEN WE HAVE POSSESSION IN OUR DEFENSIVE THIRD AND NOT PLAYING THROUGH OUR MIDFIELD. THIS IS A RESULT OF A COMBINATION OF POOR POSITIONING, NO MOVEMENT OFF THE BALL AND POOR BODY SHAPE WHEN WE RECEIVE THE BALL.

SESSION OBJECTIVE: IN THIS SESSION I AIM TO IMPROVE THE MANNER IN WHICH OUR MIDFIELD CAN RECEIVE THE BALL FROM OUR BACK 4 IN FORWARD FACING POSITIONS TO ENABLE US TO PLAYING FORWARD QUICKLY AND COMBINE WITH OUR #7, #9 AND #11.

TEAM TASK

* TO PLAY FORWARD THROUGH OUR MIDFIELD IN A STRUCTURED MANNER.

PLAYER TASKS

* #3 AND #4 TO DRIVE WHEN IN POSSESSION OF THE BALL IF THERE IS SPACE, IN ORDER TO DRAW MIDFIELD OPPONENTS OUT OF POSITION.

* #6 AND #8 TO MOVE BETWEEN THE LINES AND AWAY FROM OPPONENTS IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE BALL (FEINT MOVEMENTS).

* #6, #8 AND #10 TO ROTATE POSITIONS IN ORDER TO LOSE THEIR MARKERS.

* #6 AND #8 NEVER BE SQUARE WITH EACH OTHER, ALWAYS 1 HIGHER THAN THE OTHER AND SPLIT.

* #6, #8 AND #10 TO COMMUNICATE AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE POSITIONED SO THE PLAYER ON THE BALL ALWAYS HAS THREE OPTIONS TO PASS (RIGH, LEFT, CENTRE).

* #6, #8 AND #10 MUST GET SIDE ON (OPEN BODY) WHEN RECEIVING THE BALL IN ORDER TO PLAY FORWARD IF THE OPPORTUNITY PRESENTS ITSELF.

* #2 AND #5 TO KEEP WIDTH TO CREATE SPACE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD. SPACE=TIME.
