DEFENDING

1 - PRESS, High reward if we win the ball back, keep opposition away from our goal, extremely low risk, opportunity to set pressing traps.

2 - No direct threat show opposition we are strong, i.e. keep in section 2 or move to section 3 don't allow them to switch/width of the pitch, use the touchline.

3 - Middle of the pitch be COMPACT, do not allow forward passes or runs into section 5, show out to section 2 or even back to section 1.

4 -STOP/BLOCK crosses from this section, try and force back to section 2, anticipate the overlap.

5- Box and second box is where most goals are created show away from goal, show patience and don't give away cheap goals.

6- Around 80% of all goals are scored in the designated gold section, ZERO tollerance, blocks, clearences always very high risk.
