PSULV Buildup (15 mins)


Upon the goalkeeper receiving the ball, the 4 blue defenders will transition from the flat setup to an attacking style, as shown. MAKE THE PITCH AS BIG AS POSSIBLE.

1. The CBs & FBs will split, keeping their eye on the ball.

2. CB move wide to the corners of the 18 yard area, looking to receive directly from the GK.

3. The 2 FBs move as wide as possible (hugging the touchlines) and push higher up the field, in-line with the red cones to break the line of the opposition.

4. CBs & FBs keep an open body shape so they can see 3 corners of the pitch. (Coach ensures he is specific with instructions not vague, e.g. get wide, Where? When? How? Who? What? Why?).

5. CM maintains higher position to occupy the Red CM and use sharp movements to provide an option for a pass.

6. Use passing combinations with the goalkeeper to play balls through or around (not over) the Red players and into the targets at the half.
