ZOOM-IN AND BREAK DOWN

FUNCTION :

organisation - employ a 3v3 and organise pitch from centre spot to penalty spot plrs positioned as a G/K - C/B - F/B - C/M in the blue team and the reds with a C/F - C/M - R/M.

PRACTICE :

PASS 1 = Start with G/K passing into F/B (blues) - as pass from G/K is traveling to F/B this is the 'trigger' for the R/M to curve/ark his/her run to apply pressure on F/B and force play inside, the R/M's movement is the 'trigger' for C/M to apply pressure on oponents C/M - so on F/B's touch our R/M is in position to force play inside if F/B decision is to pass with his/her second touch into C/M (blue) our C/M (red) is in position to apply pressure on outside shoulder side with the mindset of "can I pinch the incoming pass" or does h/she apply pressure and force play back if the F/B's pass is into blues C/M's safe side, also the R/M will make recovery run/movement back 'space' this Iis also 'triggered' by pass from F/B into C/M,our C/F should hold his/her position on both pass 1 & pass 2 if the F/B's decision is to employ pass 3 then s/he should be alert and set to react if the F/B shapes his/her body to employ pass 3 that's his/her 'trigger' to apply pressure on C/B (blue) inside shoulder with the mindset of "can I pinch the pass" or stop the ball being transfered to other C/B also can s/he press from the front if ball is passed back to F/B our C/F should recover back into 'space' so now we're back where we started but having prevented the oposition to advance up field.

OPEN UP PITCH/SPACE

PHASE :

ORGANISATION -

working within a three quarter pitch area also bring in a 'scoring zone' for blues, for the blues add a R/B 'R/CB 'C/M and a C/F the target/goal for blues - to work ball into C/F in 'scoring zone' , for the reds add a L/M , C/M and a holding C/M.

Practice starts with G/K passing to L/B as pass is delivered that's the 'trigger' for R/M to arc run and press L/B into playing ball infield once L/B completes pass the R/M recovers into space' if L/B employes pass 2 on second touch red C/M will press on outside shoulder (C/M 'trigger' is R/M movement) mindset "can I pinch the ball or do I press and force back" C/F should 'hold position to prevent pass to 2nd C/M(pass 4) or transfering play to left side of pitch also can s/he press from the front but if L/B decides to employ pass 3 reds C/F presses the L/CB on inside 'mindset stop pass from L/CB to R/CB the 'trigger for C/F is L/B body position/shape in readiness to pass into L/CB , the red L/M should take up a position half distance between C/M and R/CB (blues) and in line with edge of 18yrd box in readiness to press C/M from the front and also provide balance and the other red C/M will press the second blue C/M on the outside shoulder with a mindset of 'can I pinch it' or press play back 'the reds D/CM is to cover if either C/M loose or force oponent inside/advance forward s/he can engage also the D/CM will stop/intercept pass into blue C/F.

Principles and formation would benifit a 4-5-1 formation 'three in midfield two wide players when oponents have posession - push red wide players into a more advanced position when in posession and one of the two C/M can advance into 18yrd box and become a 'second striker' the other C/M taking up position at edge of box with the D/CM holding his/her position in midfield in case of a counter attack.
