DEFENSIVE PRINCIPLES

(#1, #2, #3, #4, #5,)

TOP PRIORITIES:

1) BE AWARE OF NUMBERS DOWN DEFENDING. BE PATIENT AND RECOVER/DELAY WITH SPEED AS LONG AS POSSIBLE

2) ANYONE COMES IN OUR BOX THEY MUST BE MARKED! FIND THEM AND MARK THEM

3) HEAD ON A SWIVEL AS WE RETREAT TOWARDS OUR GOAL

3) ORGANIZED QUICKLY ON SET PIECES AND DEAD BALLS

 

1. PRIMARY FOCUS: 

Be super aware of defending in numbers down situations or in situations when players are attacking us at speed. DROP & RECOVER, DROP & RECOVER WITH SPEED!!!

Can we be super patient in our defending, not diving in/jabbing at the ball? Good 1 v 1 defending.

Can we back our teammates up by providing cover in defensive situations?

Can we compact and organized and move as a unit

Work together to force the ball out wide or negative and force mistakes in the attacking team.

DO NOT JAB AT A BALL THAT YOU ARE NOT 10000% GUARANTEED TO WIN!!

PUSH OUT/UP WHEN THE BALL GOES NEGATIVE (AWAY FROM OUR GOAL)

This also helps us stay connected to our midfielders/attackers when we win possession and push the ball forward.

OUR SAFE ZONE AND THE AREA WE ARE TRYING TO PROTECT AT ALL COSTS IS THE CENTRAL AREA IN THE DEFENSIVE AND MIDDLE THIRD OF THE FIELD.

* DO NOT allow any balls through the back line centrally....make everything go wide!

ORGANIZED QUICKLY ON SET PIECES - organization must happen quickly !!! This is especially true on throw ins when we must transition and respond defensively IMMEDIATELY!!!

(Recognize mismatches, recognize strongest players, shape of the wall (tallest players in the direct shooting line, etc, etc). Man to man on corners

High on the 18 yd line for free kicks (TRACK RUNNERS!!!!)

WIN THE PHYSICAL BATTLE!!!

 

*GK ROLE:

*Ask the question: can they score from there??

*Starting position a little higher to keep connectivity with back line to some extent

*Be available as a back pass option when we are being pressed back towards our goal

*Punch aerial balls in the box whenever possible!

BE PATIENT: DON'T RELEASE THE BALL TOO QUICKLY

MIDFIELD PRINCIPLES

(#6, #8, #10)

 

1) MOVEMENT OFF THE BALL TO CREATE PASSING LANES

2) MINIMIZE TOUCHES ON THE BALL SO WE CAN GET THE BALL MOVING MORE QUICKLY (ESPECIALLY IN CENTRAL AREAS)

3) FOCUS ON THE ACCURACY OF OUR PASSING!!!!!!

4) WE ARE TRYING TO PLAY OUT FROM THE BACK WHEN THE GK HAS THE BALL

 

 

*CAN WE CREATE GOOD SUPPORT ANGLES FOR PASSING ALL THE TIME!!

We MUST move without the ball MUCH more effectively. We spend too much time staring at players and not enough time moving to create space, passing lanes and possession.

*CAN WE ENSURE THE ACCURACY OF OUR PASSING?

* CAN WE WORK HARD TO GET OUR BODY SHAPE RIGHT EARLY ON, OPENING UP OPPORTUNITIES FOR EARLY PASSES

* MIDFIELD PATIENCE TO FIND POCKETS OF SPACE BETWEEN DEFENDERS/PENETRATING DEFENSIVE LINES, ETC

******************************************************************************

ATTACKING PRINCIPLES

(#7, #9, #10, #11) 

TOP PRIORITIES!!

1) AVOID DRIBBLING OR PASSING INTO NUMBERS DOWN SITUATIONS!!

2) ACCURACY OF PASSING IN THE ATTACKING THIRD OF THE FIELD. FOCUSED ATTENTION TO DETAIL!!

3) WIDTH, WIDTH, WIDTH, WIDTH AND MORE WIDTH 

 

 

*WE MUST MAKE BETTER DECISIONS WITH THE BALL BASED ON WHAT WE SEE:

Does our teammate have more pressure than us? don't pass

Is our teammate in a better, further advanced position than us? pass

Is there alot of space between us and the defenders? take the space

Are there 3-6 defenders right in front of us on our side of the field? look for the switch or pull the ball back and drop pass to another line (midfield line, defensive line)

*Vary our runs, vary our passes in advanced areas, vary our speed, vary the number of support players, vary central vs. wide passes, etc.

*Keep your head up and avoid running into dead corners where defenders have the advantage. 

*Use the ball safely and retain possession when faced with numbers down situations in the attacking third.

As with our midfielders, can we get the ball out wide early and then play from there. Take advantage of the space in wide areas or come back central after the defense has shifted, switch the ball to the other side of the field.

ACCURACY NOT POWER ON OUR FINISHING!! We blasted the ball over the bar way too many times on Saturday! Let's get that fixed for Sundays game. MAKE THE GK WORK BY HITTING THE TARGET WITH ANY SHOT

 

SET PIECES - Things to remember!!

Throw ins - possession not aimlessly throwing the ball down the field 

-Possess on Free kicks anywhere further than 35 yds. Look to get the ball moving as quickly as possible but avoiding playing into pressure.

-Corners: Jelani will be primary corner taker (Dubem, Alex and Bora as back ups or choose to take short corner )

Attacking Free Kicks - Jelani has primary responsibility (Alex and Bora as back ups)

PKs - Jelani is #1, Dubem is back up
