7v5 (25 mins)

7v5 positional game. Mimics relationships in a 1-4-3-3 (GK, 2 CBs, 1 DM, 2 FBs, AM/ST, or CB, DM, 2 AMs, 2 Wide attackers & ST ). Targets/support players on outside are on 2 touch maximum. Have to combine through the middle from a target to play through to opposite target for a point. Targets can play directly to each other but only on the ground. Defenders can get a point for regaining possession and connecting 5 passes.


In this scenario, we have 2 deep inside players (1&2) supporting target (T) & 2 high & wide support players (3&4). But, as ball travels to opposite target this shape reverses, with 2 deep wide support players & high inside players (triangle shapes in wide areas).


Instruction points :

- support (angles/distance/timing)

- positioning of players on inside & outside of playing area (5 horizontal lines when possible)

- always maintain a presence within the defender's block (DM)

- attacking positions influence defender's postioning

- ball is an attractor for pressing : keep ball moving to create gaps to exploit
