Working with your players
Tactical Intentions? Are these clear and simple, avoid over complicating. Think , what do we intend to do when in possession – in transition – when out of possession
If the speed of the ball is wrong the chances of losing the ball are much greater and so this is one of the key elements to the drill, making sure the ball is moving at a good pace. Make sure the passes are not in the air as this will make it harder to control
Try to play one touch but when a bad pass is made players can us an extra touch or control with the help of the other foot. The speed of pass will effect the receiving of the ball, too hard and it will be harder to control with one pass, too soft and the drill will be too slow.
Creating space and time are two of the most important factors in the game. When going 1v1 against an opponent attackers need to use feints and body skills to do this. When defending it is important to get players to look at the ball and not the player so they are not so easily deceived.
