Small sided tactical game in which we will give an extra value to two key momentums of the game: When we lose the ball and when we win it back. The transition level of our players will hugely increase.
Tactical decisions so the team in possession of the ball achieves width when attacking and become more compact defensively fixing distances for coverages and defensive support.
To be fast but not rushing! This is a provocation rule which will improve the decision making in order to adapt the pace and the game speed.
During the offensive transition, your team will will need to begin looking for width, permanent support from the players, a good communication etc. This offensive and defensive transition tactical drill will make your team improve this exact momentum of the game.
Ball retention, body orientation (One of Guardiola’s biggest obsession) to receive the ball from the exterior neutral player who has advantage through the guided discovery learning method. The defensive anticipations will make the attackers be on the right body shape to retain the ball and switch the play.
A drill composed of a tactical rondo and transitions. Your players will ask you for repeating it because they will enjoy it a lot.
To attack bearing in mind that we have to be ready to defend is one of the most difficult things to put in your players’ mind. If we do not practice it, they will not internalize it.
One of the most important things when making a run to lose the defender and finishing is the right moment for making the run. With a simple rule, you will make your offensive players identify that moment in a drill which recreates a real situation.
It is a classical position drill which is used by different elite coaches like Klopp, Guardiola or Sarri. Quick decision making and little movements to create free passing lines at a higher speed than the real game. This will help your players to make the right decisions during the game.
The offensive football is for the players without the ball. It will be key for taking advantage, for creating goal chances and for advancing in the game, to make the right movement at the right time. In the case they do the movement late it will be really easy to defend. The rules of this drill will make your team do that movement at the right time.
