Description

Football Problem: The front 3 failed to apply effective pressure in the final 3rd to stop the opposition #3 & #4 from play out and combining with there #6 & #8 in central areas.

Main Moment: BPO

Key Principle: Deny opposition time and space to build up

What: Opposition  #3 & #4  have to much time, and as a result they are combining with there midfield #6 & #8.

Who: #9, #10, #11,#7 & #8

Where: Opposition back 3rd central areas

When: When there #3, #4 get the ball.

Why: Our front 3 (#9,#10,#11) failed to work as a collective.

Session Objective: I aim to improve out teams ability to close down our opponents in there back 3rd denying them the space & opportunity to build up and combine with there #6 and #8 in central areas.
