Function: Working with the Lone Striker

Organization

8 Players + 1 GK

4 bibs (on defenders)

Bag of balls

Detail

Players line up like in the diagram at the starting point/height dictated by the cones on the side of the pitch

Play begins with Pink's in possession, so in a slightly expanded shape, THEN mock turn over in midfield as Pink CM dribbles or passes into Blue #4

Key Factors

1. Penetration/Depth upon regain

Can the #9 stretch the line and be played in directly for an opportunity on goal?

If so this is the best option.

- The 9 can now check into the space off the front by taking the line back (individual mobility) or MDF's to step into (team mobility)

What ifs?...

Scenario #1: CB steps with him

- CM's to support underneath for lay off

- #9 to make a secondary run

- OR opposite 8/10 to expose spacelf by CB (team mobility)

Scenario #2: CB Stays

- #9 to turn and drive at the CB's (penetration)

- Encourage one of the 8/10's to join and break the line as well (team mobility)

Key factors for Striker

- Create time and space for self and others through counter movements Primary and secondary movements

- Quality of movement- Explosive

- Timing of movement

- Body position when recieving the ball: Ability to penetrate on a pass, dribble or shot

- Type and quality of finishing based on the distance, angle and pressure endured

- Improvisation and ultimately Patience if nothing else works

- Awarenss of CB's

Organization

12 Players + 1 GK

6 v 7

6 bibs (on defenders)

Bag of balls

Detail

Players line up like in the diagram at the starting point/height dictated by the cones on the side of the pitch

Play begins with Pink's in possession, so in a slightly expanded shape, THEN mock turn over in midfield as Pink CM dribbles or passes into Blue #4 + FB's recovering into B4

Key Factors

Same detail as Function for the 9

Now...

Highlight what the #9's movement does to the opponent- "Narrows them in"

This now creates space for:

- 7/11's to take the width

What if's?...

FB travels wide too early to 7/11?

- 8/10 break te CB/FB Channel

FB stays narrow?

- 9 can look to combine with 7/11

-7/11 drives 1v1 at FB to engage (& overload)

Scenario:

Ball in wide area and cross is likely to come in

3 Players attacking th box

-#9's attacking the box (near, middle)

IF #9 wide- not ideal but happens

-They take on ball side 8/10 role while others fill the box & attack the box
