Build-Up and score goals with the 3rd man (eBook)
Build-Up and score goals with the 3rd man (eBook)
PDF Preview of "Build-Up and score goals with the 3rd man" Author: Athanasios Terzis  Publisher: Institute for Youth-Soccer (IFJ96) Pages: 107 Graphics: 79 Drills: 12 The tactics about the 3rd man and the 3rd man’s run which is analyzed in this book, is part of the tactics used by Jurgen Klopp with Liverpool, Julian Nagelsmann with Bayern Munich, Marcelo Bielsa with Leeds United, Pep Guardiola with Manchester City and Luciano Spalletti with Napoli.  Specifically, the 3rd man combination is an important element of positional play, in which three attacking players are involved. The objective is to create a free player with available space in advanced position, behind the line of pressure and then move the ball to him. So, when it is applied successfully it can lead in breaking at least one line of pressure. Diagram: 3rd man combination during the execution phase – Moving the ball to the free player The 3rd man combination can be used in several match situations such as when building up from the back in order to break through the pressure applied straight to the GK or to the central defenders. It can also be used against a medium or a low defensive block to help the attacking team break a line of pressure and move the ball to a free player between the lines. Diagram: Breaking through the pressure applied to the GK Except for the 3rd man combination, the book analyses the patterns of the 3rd man’s run that are most frequently used during matches, either in the central areas or wide. The 3rd man’s run, like the 3rd man is also a combination which involves three players. The objective is not to create a free player and move the ball to him, but to move the ball to an attacking player who is on the run, usually behind the defensive line of the opponents. Diagram: 3rd man’s run – 2nd pattern So, if the application of the combination is successful, a goal scoring opportunity can be created. The book will present the most frequently used patterns and the match situations that each specific pattern can be used, as well as how each pattern can be adapted to various formations. Diagram: Pattern 2 of the 3rd man’s run –Applied with the 1-4-2-3-1 formation The analysis of the two combinations (3rd man and 3rd man’s run) is followed by several drills to help coaches apply the analyzed tactics to their teams, by simply adding or adjusting them to their own training sessions.

Pressing-Resistance (eBook)
Pressing-Resistance (eBook)
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

Individual Practices for Midfielders (eBook)
Individual Practices for Midfielders (eBook)
PDF Preview of "• Individual practices for midfielders" Italian Training Concepts - Part 9 Individual practices for midfielders Author: Luca BertoliniPages: 71Graphics: 48Exercises: 46 There is an era of midfielders before Pep Guardiola and another era after his seasons at Barcelona; Busquets, Xavi, and Iniesta have changed the positions in the field and the meaning of the word, and the role. Following the word, midfielders are the players who stand and act in the middle third of the field; from this point of view, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard have already changed the role, creating the box-to-box midfielders. On the other side, Guardiola's Tiki-taka is over at this stage of tactical developments. However, the consequences of this period are still affecting soccer, as he created the attacking midfielders, "using" Busquets as holding and defensive midfielder in front of the defensive line. In his proper definition, a holding midfielder is probably the purest form of a defensive midfielder, as he holds his position close to the team's defense. There are 3 types of midfielders that protect the back defensive line, launch the building-up phase, and support the consolidation and possession phases of play. The proper defensive midfielder, the holding or deep-lying midfielder, and the deep-lying playmaker. Other types of categorized midfielders are the hybrid midfielder, who doesn't help the defense as a first task, but he acts as the game's flow requires, or the box-to-box midfielder, who plays with excellent Positioning, defensively and offensively. Are the wingers midfielders? Or do these players act in a completely different role? Are the inverted fullbacks midfielders? The wingers become "Mezzale" in the building up and defensive phases of the 1-4-4-2. If the mezzale are destructive players, they become Mediano(s). Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have created the final review of the midfielder's role definition in Germany and England; the inverted fullbacks allowed the midfielders to act as attackers and push up fullbacks have required the wide midfielders to patrol the half-spaces and the flanks at the back. The No.10s are now midfielders, attacking and pressing midfielders. Even though they are not frequently immediately involved in the building up phases, they are now points of reference in the possession, consolidation, and finishing stages of the moves. Eventually, technical skills, flexibility, awareness, and peripheral vision are the main requirements for a midfielder who must: Support the building-up phase Allow a center back to stand wider Move the ball at the back Allow a center back to stand wider Cut off the pressure lines Allow a center back to stand wider. Use the goalkeeper as a back apex to create a 3 v 2 duel Manage the ball in the middle third (possession and consolidation phases) Back apex, behind the attacking lanes, and in front of the defensive line. Support the finishing stages of the moves. These are the situations of play which the book aims to coach.

This eBook includes: 10 Rondos for pressing 10 Rondos for offensive transitions 10 Rondos for playing deep 10 Rondos for attacking the final third 10 Rondos for speed up decision making Of particular value is the information regarding coaching, organization and possible variations.

Author: Timo Jankowski Pages: 250 Graphics: 150 Photos: 100   Coaching Soccer Like Guardiola and Mourinho The Concept of Tactical Periodization A soccer player is more than the sum of his parts: endurance, speed, shooting technique, passing technique, and many more. All of these factors need to be turned into one system to create good players. Traditional training theory doesn’t achieve that because each skill is trained individually. This is why the concept of Tactical Periodization has become the preferred training theory for many of the current most successful soccer coaches: Pep Guardiola, José Mourinho, Diego Simeone, André Villas-Boas, and many others train according to these principles. By creating match-like situations in practice, players learn to link their technical, tactical, and athletic abilities to match intelligence. They will learn to transfer their skills to soccer matches and they can improve endurance, technique, and tactics all at the same time while enjoying the practice sessions more. For this book, the author has evaluated and analyzed hundreds of training sessions and has tailored exercises to specific demands. All exercises are performed with a ball so that players learn to apply each skill to the game. Every coach will find numerous exercises in this book to help them create better and more efficient practice sessions so they can improve their players’ and the team’s performance.

Individual and Small Group Training for Strikers - 2 (eBook)
Individual and Small Group Training for Strikers - 2 (eBook)
PDF Preview of "Individual and Small Group Training for Strikers - 2" Italian Training Concepts - Part 10 Individual and Small Group Training for Strikers - 2 Author: Luca BertoliniPages: 75Graphics: 54Exercises: 34 This book has the goal to coach the strikers from an individual point of view, involving them in 2 v 2, 3 v 2, and 3 v 3 (+ goalkeeper) situations to improve their individual cooperation and technical skills and to let them learn how to play focusing on tactical principles of play: 2 striker v 2 defenders + goalkeeper: striker with the ball at his feet and striker without the ball at the beginning. 3 strikers v 2 defenders + goalkeeper: 1 striker with the ball at his feet and 2 strikers without the ball at the beginning. 3 strikers v 2 defenders + goalkeeper: 3 strikers without the ball at the beginning. 3 strikers v 3 defenders + goalkeeper: 1 striker with the ball at his feet and 2 strikers without the ball at the beginning. 3 strikers v 3 defenders + goalkeeper: 3 strikers without the ball at the beginning. To cooperate and be linked with teammates and to act against more than one defender (numerical advantage or equality situations) are only tools to coach the players as unique actors; there aren't any connections with systems of play but with principles of play. The area of the field where the practices are set up is the final third, considering the division of the field into attacking sub-areas that the positional play philosophy inspires. The final third is divided into three 6 areas (2 along the flanks and 2 in the center). Small-sided games are widely used during soccer practices, and they enable players to experience situations they encounter during matches. On the other hand, small-sided games aren't enough to coach the strikers (and the defenders) despite leading them to develop their technical and tactical skills. Apart from technical skills coaching and individual tactical objectives of the small-sided games, the coach must plan specific tactical exercises to complete the learning and training processes. At this point, we come back to talk about individual training; all the specific tactical skills require individual training first of all. These skills have to be connected to the teammates and related to the opponents to create cooperation (after individual training, both whiles attacking and defending) and connections to beat the opponents. This is what this book aims to coach.

Individual and Small Groups Defense (eBook)
Author: Luca Bertolini Pages: 72 Illustrations and Figures: 102   If we think about all the systems of play, there are many types of defense tactics; the first big difference can be found among the defense lines with three, four or five players. But these following can be considered deeper differences: How to play during negative transitions How and when to put pressure How and when run back to cover the spaces How and when to try to recover the ball How and when play with counterpressing How and when mark an opponent and when to cover the back spaces to him Who is the first defender among the forwards in the final or in the middle third Who is the defending midfielder or when to follow the opponents or when to try to close him. Or, why not, who is the defender who manage the whole defensive line. But there are common principles of play of defense which every player should know as basic skills. These are the individual tactics principles of defense against one an opponent. These skills should be learned by all players as they are so independent from the systems of play. In this book there is a progression of exercises which starts from some simple sequences, which will lead up to a final exercise where all the principles of play are mixed during its development. All exercises are combined with little goals to save and use as reference point. The final exercises include a regular goal and a goalkeeper who takes active part in it; this is useful to train the players to defend looking always at the opponent, the ball and the goal with his teammate goalkeeper.

Coaching the Inverted Fullbacks (eBook)
Coaching the Inverted Fullbacks (eBook)
PDF Preview of "Coaching the Inverted Fullbacks" Italian Training Concepts - Part 8 Coaching the Inverted Fullbacks Author: Luca BertoliniPages: 81Graphics: 51Exercises: 38 The definition of the "Inverted Fullbacks" may create a misunderstanding: they are not a right-footed player on the left or left-footed players on the right as for the wingers, but they are fullbacks who join the center space of the midfield, running or carrying the ball in front of the center backs, creating more passing options in the center areas of the field, replacing the right and center midfielders, which can become offensive players close to the center forward and play in between the opposition defense lines. From a defensive point of view, inverted fullbacks ensure balance at the back, in case of loss of possession and allowed the now advanced midfielders to counter-press the opposition through numerical advantages around the ball, together with midfield wingers. The inverted fullbacks' significant and weak points are the low options for overlapping runs to support the finishing stage of the moves, the risk of leaving the wingers along, and overloading the center spaces too much, with no chance to stretch the opposition midfield line. These issues can be fixed anyway by high-speed skilled wingers who can run up and down the flanks, from the middle line to the end line, and by high rhythm possession in the middle to travel the ball to the center final third or out wide. Pep Guardiola is the inventor of this team tactical shape; as already stated, the positional play idea of Guardiola probably took him to use these tactics at Bayern Munich, looking for numerical advantage around the ball all over the attacking half of the field, the chance to exploit the skills of his wingers and for the immediate recovery of the ball after its loss. Inverted fullbacks are linked to Pep's creative invention, the "Half Spaces." As these kinds of fullbacks overload the center and the wingers are asked to be placed as wide and possible, Guardiola has been able to open two channels between the flanks and the center, where the center backs, while building up, and the offensive midfielders, when the team is finishing, often act. Obviously, the "Half Spaces" are the territory of exchanges of positions, many kinds of possible patterns of play between the attacking players; mobility is essential inside these spaces. Inverted fullbacks inside the half-spaces and wingers along the flanks, never placed on the same vertical line, where defenders can easily cover passes, if not time, made this field possible; these spaces call us to mind the positional play. This is the reason for this book; try to coach the inverted fullbacks through the positional game to understand the patterns of play and then with small-sided games to take them into the situations with attacking and defending transitions.

Individual and small Group Training for Strikers (eBook)
Individual and small Group Training for Strikers (eBook)
PDF Preview of "Individual and small Group Training for Strikers" Italian Training Concepts - Part 7 Individual and Small Group Training for Strikers Author: Luca BertoliniPages: 74Graphics: 36Exercises: 33 This book has the goal to coach the strikers from an individual point of view, involving him in 1 v 1 + goalkeeper situations to improve their skills and to let them learn the basic tactical principles of play and to coach them in cooperating with teammates and against more than one defender (numerical advantage and disadvantage situations). This is the summary of the situations of play that the practices aim to coach: 1 striker v 1 defender + goalkeeper: striker with the ball at his feet and striker without the ball at the beginning. 2 strikers v 1 defender + goalkeeper: 1 striker with the ball at his feet and both strikers without the ball at the beginning. The area of the field where the practices are set-up is the final third, taking into consideration the division of the field into attacking sub-areas that it is inspired by the positional play philosophy. The final third is divided into three 6 areas (2 along the flanks and 2 in the center); a team is four times more likely to score a goal playing the ball from zone 14 towards the penalty area than the wings. The recovery of the ball in zone 14 leads to a goal almost 80% of the time. The exercises of the books are set–up and organized as follow: The spaces are set-up with grids that correspond to the attacking areas throughout the field’s final third (18 x 25 metres) each. There is always a regular goal with the goalkeeper to finish, wherever the practice starts. The striker must always beat an opponent (passive at the beginning and then fully active) before shooting. When the defender wins the possession dribbles the ball toward the zone 14 and the striker has 6” to recover the possession and then he can try to score again (to coach the principles of play of recovering the ball in that field’s area). The striker may face also a time pressure, when he must score within a fix limit of time. The strikers (from 2 v 1 to 3 v 3 practices) may start the sequence inside the same grid or inside different grids or they could be required to overload a specific area to create numerical advantage before shooting on goal. When defenders are more than one and they can win the ball, they always have to pass it inside zone 14, as in the 1 v 1 practices, and the strikers have 6” to recover the possession to try to shoot on goal again. Even in the small group practices, the strikers may face also a time pressure, when they must score within a fix limit of time. All the small group practices include the developments of the team’s possession principles of play while attacking (overlaps, underlaps, blind side run, direct and indirect attacks, cut, triangle passing combinations and 1 v 1 duels before passing).

The Ultimate Book of Soccer Set-Pieces (eBook)
The Ultimate Book of Soccer Set-Pieces (eBook)
PDF Preview of "The Ultimate Book of Soccer Set-Pieces" The Ultimate Book of Soccer Set-PiecesStrategies for Attack and Defense Restarts Author: Tony EnglundPages: 195Graphics: 128 World Cup 2018 saw a record 66 goals scored from set-piece situations (42% of the 155 total goals scored), a remarkable and emphatic statement regarding the influence of set-pieces on the modern game. In the English Premier League, the number of set-piece goals reached 246 in the 2018-2019 campaign, up 10% over the previous campaign, and part of an evident trend over the past decade. A fascinating, recent study of three seasons in the English Premier League determined that teams were more likely to score from set-pieces (1.8%) as compared with normal possessions (1.1%).ii That same study pointed out that teams significantly improved their overall goals for/goals against ratio by excelling at defending set-pieces, and those same teams often found survival in the Premier League, or demotion, was related to their success at set-pieces. Still, the following two statements apply to many coaches and teams at all levels of the game. Resources for coaches to learn about and refine set-piece training are scant and dated. Coaches tend not to devote a lot of training time to set-piece preparation. Why?Let’s quickly examine the nature and challenges of the dearth of preparation for set-piece success. Very little in the way of guidance for coaches exists to help them prepare their teams to win the set-piece battle. The written literature on the subject is largely dated and thin, and coaching schools generally eschew any in-depth exploration of set-pieces. Indeed, I was told by an instructor that “the selection of set-piece plays and defending thereof are dependent upon level, personnel, and the coaches’ preferences.” True enough. However, the same is often said of systems of play, which most of us debate in detail in coaching courses. Setpieces arguably influence the outcome of matches at a level commensurate with systems of play. Coaches tend to follow one or both of these two patterns in set-piece preparation: Complex plays they witnessed in watching high-level matches, or Coaches like to just give general themes for set-pieces (e.g., serve the ball to the penalty spot on corner kicks and have some runners converge there). The result is that players and coaches often devote very little time to set-piece rehearsal, as this becomes a fairly dry and sometimes frustrating component of practice. Indeed, set-pieces are often one of the last topics added to the training docket, fit in as a necessity shortly before matches begin. Consider, then, that teams average roughly 20 attacking set-pieces (free and penalty kicks, corner kicks and throws in the front third).iv Add on to this the potential damage of defending an average of twenty more set-pieces. If the team could win the set-piece battle, scoring more goals from set-pieces than are allowed, and if the team could achieve an increased proficiency by finishing, for example, two set-pieces per match, what kind of dramatic impact would this have on results? One has to think that if coaches at every level consider the trends and potential impact, there will be much more set-piece preparation going forward. This volume is intended to be a complete exploration of the potential of set-piece situations in modern soccer. The body of the work will be a detailed examination of set-piece considerations on both sides of the ball and hundreds of examples of the most effective plays, as well as how to defend those situations. This book will be the most expansive, thoughtful study ever completed on the subject. It is hoped that coaches of every level will want to have this resource available to help prepare their teams.
