Game training

Blue-1-4-3-1

GK - Matt, B4 - Shane/Hamish/Josh A/Jonny C, CM - Cam/Juan/Simon, ST - Peter N

Red- 3-3-3

B3 - Sam/Jamie/Jordan , CM - Jun/Ben/JNH, ATT - John H/KT/Arnie

Start of game

- red combine and lose possession to GK or one of the B4 - game is now live!

Blue score by:

- combining with ST

- getting player on the ball over 1/2 way

- passing to mannequin

Red score by:

- winning possession and score in big goal

Rules:

- 2 x transition only

- have to be passed flags to pass into wingers (goals)

General notes:

- nothing through middle - if they do, nearest player pressure and prevent turn

- look for cues to press - CB steps forward/goes one way

- if we can't affect play, get behind ball and wait for the next opportunity to press and cut off lines into HCM

- threaten any backwards passes if ball has gone beyond you

- force play wide and then inside. If we can't win, force play back where it came from...NO SWITCH!!! Opposite side player narrow off to prevent switch.

- CM or WF pressing on CB to CB pass but only if they can affect it

- CM to screen ball into ST/WF and be cose enough to press nearest CM. If ball wide and we have pressure, get tighter to nearest CM to intercept ball or force back (no switch!)

- If they have time and space and looking to play forward, kill space in behind. GK stay connected to back 4

T-A

- think forward 1st - movement, passing and dribbling

- if not on, keep possession and wait for the right moment

- don't give ball away cheaply with poor decisions

Generally we are outnumbered when pressing so it's all about trying to cut off lines to 2 or 3 players and force them into where we want them to go so we we gain the advantage.

Pressing is fucking hard work and needs to be done in sync so if you're here for an easy ride this isn't for you!!!
