How Can We Help?
Play starts 5v3 in central grid – 3 passes before playing out to one of 7/9/11, ball is played back into one of the mids (6/8/10) who immediately initiate an attack to goal – dashed line is offside line
Defenders score on mini goals
Add defenders 2/3
As ball is played in central grid, 7/9/11 prepare movements, check shoulders, 9 looks to float in and out of space, prepared to check back to ball
Once attack starts, encourage diagonal movements of 9/11 or 7/11 – or attempt to create width
Defensive mids – once attack starts, work hard to recover, attempt to pressure ball
Attacking mids – look to support balls into strikers and provide diagonal angles of support
