Author: Steven Turek Pages: 60 - Graphics: 53 Pressing-Resistance Tactical Principles – Match Solutions - Drills Steven Turek: „Pressing-Resistance is the ability to identify the opposing pressing, resist it and purposefully outplay it.“ Every coach knows the situation: The own team builds up the play and is early pressured on. Passes are desperately played from one player to the other, until one clears the ball long. What’s needed in these situations is call pressing-resistance. The ability to identify the opposing pressing, break it and purposefully outplay it! In order that your team becomes individually as well as team-tactically more pressing-resistant, you’ll find the following chapters in the eBook: Tactical principles to identify the opposing pressing Valuable changes of perspectives Fundamentals for an individual skillset to break pressing Specific Strategies to solve a blocked goal-kick Match solutions for the play on the wing and in the center Practical training exercises for a perfect transfer onto the pitch A core element of most offensive strategies, is usually the attempt to press the opponent into motion, more precisely, into sprinting. Pressing distinguishes itself by players creating high pressure on the ball carrier. Why don’t we consequently consider that opposing pressure in a positive way and use it for our own strategy? That’s exactly the aspect I want to discuss in “Pressing-Resistance”. „The opponent only has ten players as well. If he creates numerical advantage somewhere on the pitch, somewhere else has to be a numerical disadvantage - that’s simple logic.” (Carlo Ancelotti) Exploit the weak points of the pressing! “If a coach considers the opposing pressing in a positive way, strategic aspects become more important, because: Behind every good pressing strategy is an idea, how the ball is supposed to be won. To counter that strategy, I developed all kinds of match solutions, which orient on common pressing strategies and specifically focus on weak spots. To focus on these weak spots, it can happen that specific types of players find themselves in unfamiliar positions on the pitch. Therewith, I purposefully want to provide suggestions and break up common thinking patterns.” (Steven Turek) Chances and Risks If Pressing-Resistance is successfully implemented, different advantages emerge: A favorable ratio of players in the attack after successfully outplaying the first pressing-line Adjustment-Mechanisms of the opponent (for example quick dropping towards their own goal, strategic fouls and so on) Demoralization of the opponent, when pressing-strategies don’t work
Series: German Top Level Tactics - Part 4 Why Counterpressing? Tactical Principles Analysis of Situations in the Game 25 Effective Exercises and How to Coach Them Author: Steven Turek Edited by: Peter Schreiner Translated by: Tjorben Becker Editor: Institute of Youth soccer, Essen - Germany (www.soccer-coaches.com) Pages: 69 - Graphics: 52 Content: After the first three parts of the series “German Top Level Tactics” focused on attacking strategies, the author Steven Turek now devotes the fourth part on the interesting topic of counterpressing. Already in the first parts, the author made remarks and defined fundamental principles to this topic - now he presents an entire book focusing on counterpressing! Firstly, the question will be answered what counterpressing actually is and why it is meaningful to implement it into your philosophy. In the following, Turek focuses on descriptions to all measures which could be applied in each game phase. Among others, the following questions will be answered: Which coherence exists between measures and ball possession (e.g. definite attacking strategies) and counterpressing? Which measures need already be applied in own ball possession? What are the most important fundamental principles in the moment of a lost ball? The theoretical part will be completed with possibilities to act after successful counterpressing - but also what to do, if counterpressing fails. Especially the detailed practical part of this book is to be seen as a highlight. Steven Turek presents 25 exercises with detailed descriptions and extensive variations which enable the effective and playful training of counterpressing with every number of players and players of all ages.
