Set Up (5 mins)

Organisation

Create an area 40x30 yards.

Place a neutral GK in each goal, together with two wide Red Players to be introduced into the MDG in Progression 2. Additional Blue MF Player will be introduced in Progression 1.

Split players into two teams, Red and Blue - 5 players in the red team, 2 players in the blue team.

Red team to be coached.

Aim

To revise the role of a lone striker in a 3MF lone striker formation.

Instructions

Play commences with a neutral GK passing or throwing the ball to the Red CB. Red CB then plays the ball into the Red MF, who seek to pass the ball eventually to the lone striker. Lone striker must pass the ball, or lay the ball off, for a Red MF, who must advance, and shoot as soon as he is out of the shaded area. Play then recommences by the neutral GK passing the ball out again, but now the Red lone striker becomes the Red CB, and the Red Cb becomes the new Red lone striker. The red team then seek to attack the opposite goal in the same manner.

Effect the Wide Neutral Players

The wide neutral players are not utilised during the early part of the MDG but will be introduced in a progression later on.

Effect the Opposition

The Blue MF must remain in the shaded area at all times.

If they obtain possession, can they look to score within 10 secs. If they fail to do so, play commences from the GK the Blue team were attaacking at the moment they lost possession.

Playing out from the CB (5 mins)

Effect the GK

Can the GK pass or throw the ball out to the CB, and when doing so, provide a verbal instruction eg. 'turn'. Can the pass or throw to the CB be in front of the CB to encourage the CB to advance and receive the ball on his front foot.

Effect the CB

Can the CB move to one side of the goal or the other to receive the pass or throw from the GK in order to receive the ball on an angle?

Can the CB receive the ball on his front foot with an open body shape?

Effect the MF (1) (5 mins)

Effect the Red MF (1)

Can the Red MF play with an AMF player with the other two Red MF players keeping wide to stretch the Blue MF?

If the CB moves to one side or the other, can the opposite wide Red MF come deep and the other WMF, on the same side of the shaded area as the Red CB, press a little higher? (see above). If so, and the Blue MF mark those Red MF players, then a passing line opens up for the Red AM (Pass 1).

Alternatively, can the two WMF 'go to show' (Pass 2) or 'show to go' (Pass 3) to try to create sopace to receive the ball.

The Red WMF may look to switch with each other or with the AMF also.

Or if both the Red WMF players are tightly marked, can they go narrow, so as to enable a passing line to be created for the lone striker, who moves toward the side where the Red CB is? (pass 4)

Effect the MF (2) (5 mins)

Effect the Red MF (2)

Can the AMF play the ball to the lone striker, who must then lay the ball back to any Red MF player.

Red MF player who receives the ball must then advance and once out of the shaded area, shoot.

Red AMF must look to maintain his run and receive the ball at speed

Red WMF must seek to support the attack and be in a position to receive the ball from the lone striker also. Trigger? As soon as CB plays the ball to the Red AMF.

Should both WMF players look to support the attack? No, need to have some balance - deepest WMF should look to come central to provide cover in the event of a counter attack.

Effect the Lone Striker

For the purposes of this MDG, Lone striker is being asked to hold the ball up and lay it off to one of his advancing Red MF players. Needs to have correct body position to receive the ball, keeping ball away from defender with furthest foot. Be obervant so he knows where his players are and what passing options are available. Try to weight the pass accurately, in front of the advancing MF player, so as to avoid slowing play down.

Effect the MF (3) (5 mins)

What if the Blue MF decide to mark the Red AMF?

The Red MF will always have an overload in the shaded area. There will always be a free Red MF. Ball If the Red MF keep high and wide, there will always be a passing option.

Can the Red MF play the ball as high as possible? Directly to the lone striker?

Lone striker should always seek to create a direct passing - movement is essential as well as communication.

Once the ball has been played directly into the lone striker, the lone striker will need to off load.

What runs can the Red MF create?

Can the RMF lose his marker?

Can the Red AMF create space for the RMF by taking his marker out wide? If his blue marker doesnt go with him but seeks to close down the Red RMF player, can the Red AMF create an angle for the return pass from the lone striker?

Movement and communication is key.

Progression 1 (5 mins)

Progression 1

Introduce a further Blue MF player.

Also, allow the Red CB to be able to enter the shaded area after he has passed the ball to a Red MF Player.

Effect Red RMF Player: 'Got to Show' or 'Show to Go'? Is a pass back to the Red CB on? Can the Red RMF still keep wide to stretch the blue players and create space for the remaining Red players? If the Red CB advabces into the space in front of him, should the Red RMF play deeper to provide balance and cover in the event of a counter attack should possession be lost higher up the pitch?

Effect Red LMF Player: In the above example, can the Red LMF Player push up higher, but still stretch the blue players, thus creating space centrally. If the Red CB advances should the Red LMF support the attack? or provide balance and cover in the centre event of possession being lost?

Effect Red AMF Player: Can the Red AMF Player offer a high passing option if he's able to lose his marker, of bounce the ball back to the Red CB or create movement so as to create space for the Red CB if he wishes to advance?

Effect the lone striker: The Red lone striker and Red AMF must work as a unit. If the Red AMF goes one way, can the lone striker go the other - with a view to creating angles for a passing opportunity?

Progression 2

Introduce the two wide red players (representing Red LB/RB).

Condition the Red LB and RB that they cannot enter the shaded area, are limited to two touches whenever a Red MF player passes to them, and they must return the ball to a Red MF player.

Red MF can therefore play off the Red LB/RB to advance or keep possession.
