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 (Booklet)
Pressing-Resistance (Booklet)
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

Which skills are necessary? What characterizes all these players - what makes them different? In this eBook the authors show how to organize a perfect learning situation. Description: In times of systematic and organized offensive- and defensive strategies, players as Messi and Ronaldo become more and more an exception! Reason enough for Steven Turek to elaborate on this fundamental topic in soccer. In ‘1 vs 1 Mastery’, Turek describes different situations of 1 vs 1 duels. Beyond that, he provides for every situation valuable coaching cues for attackers as well as defenders - just another basic principle for Steven Turek ‘Always coach both, the defender and the attacker!’ Furthermore, Turek describes how 1 vs 1 exercises can efficiently be used to also train conditional factors. The main focus, as in all practical training concepts, lays on the practical part over 30 pages with competition-like exercises, detailed coaching cues and many variations! Coaching Points for Attacker and Defender in Various Situations 1 vs 1 as Fitness Training 7 Exercises for Tactical 1 vs 1 Situations 7 Complex Exercises 7 Competitions More information The skills learned in basic training should then be developed as early as possible application-oriented in exercises and competitions.The successful design of offensive 1 vs 1 situations is always a great challenge for an attacker, because most defenders are well-trained in defensive tackling and also experience shows that they are extremely physical. Therefore, players in all leagues and levels are still very much in demand, who are capable of playing relentlessly attacking opponents in order to open rooms, to create a numerical majority, or to finish on the goal unchallenged.  Players like Arjen Robben, Ronaldo, Franck Ribery, Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez or Neymar.

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 skills learned in basic training should then be developed as early as possible application-oriented in exercises and competitions.The successful design of offensive 1 vs 1 situations is always a great challenge for an attacker, because most defenders are well-trained in defensive tackling and also experience shows that they are extremely physical.

Which skills are necessary? What characterizes all these players - what makes them different? First of all, all these players master almost all known dribbling techniques, body delusions and feints from the bottom up and apply them flexibly to the situation. In addition, they have extremely high basic dynamics and an explosive start. Her body control is phenomenal and the action density is very high. But these factors alone are far from enough to describe the level of these world class players. They are characterized by additional skills with which they can decide games on their own: These world-class players are fast-reacting to the fast-changing and complex game situations (space, teammates and opponents, ball movements, etc.) and make almost intuitively correct decisions based on their experience. The key words for this are "Speed of Execution", and "Action Competence".

In the end, we are talking about the players’ rotations. Whatever are the systems of play, these are the crucial skills: To shape positional triangles while building up. To create support angles while rotating. To support the possession and consolidation phases, to dribble the ball up the field, or to find the right passing lanes. To re-form the triangles, when the opposition can mark them or cover the spaces they tried to create Peripheral vision is vital Their way to arch the runs to have the best overview of the field They must be ready to play with 1 or 2 touches wherever they have to drive a pass (short or long distances, ground or aerial). The main aims of the positional play are: To dominate possession. To stretch the opposition's lines. To brake the pressure lines. To place players between the opposition lines and into specific areas. To create passing lanes and angles to pass forward to a teammate in the space, advancing the move, or to a teammate, who has time and space available, to receive and pass again to a third man. Coaching midfield rotations is vital for players and teams, to allow the building-up phase, the possession and consolidation phases, and to coach the players receiving and preparing the phase before the finishing one.

Rondos are now a firmly planned element in almost every session. There are probably very few coaches in the world who don’t include them in practices. Usually built in a rectangle, for example exercises in 4:4 + 2 or similar take place. In particular, Pep Guardiola, during in his time at FC Barcelona and later at FC Bayern Munich, made positional games more and more popular in many variations. But each Rondo has its own details and outcomes. 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. Peter Schreiner - IFJ96 The ebook by Levent Sürme and Martin Weng is something quite special. Very good, tactical preliminary remarks clarify the authors’objective: Five main topics (pressing, going on the offensive, in-depth playing, playing in the final third and swiftness of action) are introduced using vivid examples from professional soccer and impeccably rehearsed on the basis of 10 game forms. Of particular value is the information regarding coaching, organization and possible variations. This allows every coach to implement the rondos and game forms presented in targeted fashion during training, and thus prepare his players in motivated and diversified fashion for the demands of the 11 against 11 game.

The double square fulfills these requirements and is extremely versatile as a training form. It is particularly suitable as a complex passing and combination exercise during the warm-up. A big advantage of the double square is that the variations can easily be adjusted to the number of players. This way, you can perfectly warm up the whole team or groups of 10 or more players with different pass sequences. Simply vary the field size and the task and thus achieve different training goals with one training form.

Offensive 1 vs 1 (eBook)
Offensive 1 vs 1 (eBook)
Authors: Peter Schreiner, Jörg Amthor, Sven Hübscher Pages: 64 Graphics: 50 Exercises: 50 Offensive 1 vs 1 - 50 Exercises and Competitions Speed of Execution and Action Competence Dribbling exercises with a focus on ball control, twists, changes of direction and tempo changes certainly have their justification and are particularly useful in basic training if they are used in doses. The skills learned in basic training should then be developed as early as possible application-oriented in exercises and competitions. The successful design of offensive 1 vs 1 situations is always a great challenge for an attacker, because most defenders are well-trained in defensive tackling and also experience shows that they are extremely physical. Therefore, players in all leagues and levels are still very much in demand, who are capable of playing relentlessly attacking opponents in order to open rooms, to create a numerical majority, or to finish on the goal unchallenged. Players like Arjen Robben, Ronaldo, Franck Ribery, Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez or Neymar have a dribbling success rate of around 40-70%, which makes the difference. Which skills are necessary? What characterizes all these players - what makes them different? First of all, all these players master almost all known dribbling techniques, body delusions and feints from the bottom up and apply them flexibly to the situation. In addition, they have extremely high basic dynamics and an explosive start. Her body control is phenomenal and the action density is very high. But these factors alone are far from enough to describe the level of these world class players. They are characterized by additional skills with which they can decide games on their own: These world-class players are fast-reacting to the fast-changing and complex game situations (space, teammates and opponents, ball movements, etc.) and make almost intuitively correct decisions based on their experience. The key words for this are "Speed of Execution", and "Action Competence". Example - Drill 35 - Double 1 vs 1 on staggered goals Organization/Structure Playing field 40 x 40 m, set up two goals with neutral goalkeepers diagonally opposite. Additionally, mark two counter lines with pylons. Divide two teams and have them lined up diagonally opposite. Balls in both goals. Procedure • Both goalkeepers simultaneously play a flat pass (1) into the run of the • sprinting attacker A (1) • With the pass, the defenders sprint into the field and attack the • Attacker as far as possible away from the goal (1) • The attacker A should immediately receive the ball into the direction of the goal (2), dribble past B and finish (see graphic on the left) or play off B and finish (see graphic on the right) (3) • Wins B the ball, he counters as quickly as possible on the counter-line • The attackers and the defenders face each other on opposite sides Variation • The goalkeeper opens with a throw, a long ball or vertically on the other attacker Variation Dribbling exercises with a focus on ball control, twists, changes of direction and tempo changes certainly have their justification and are particularly useful in basic training if they are used in doses.

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.

Create Finishing Chances and Score (eBook)
Create Finishing Chances and Score (eBook)
Italian Training Concepts - Part 2  Create Finishing Chances and Score - 24 Positional and Small Sided Games Author: Luca Bertolini Edited by: Peter Schreiner Editor: Institute of Youth Soccer, Essen – Germany Pages: 48 Graphics: 38 Description: In this second e-book by Luca Bertolini the main theme is the organization of positional games involving eleven players (goalkeeper included) with the three classic roles of these games: players with possession, without possession and free players as support to the team with possession. One of the main goals is to create always numerical superiority for the players in possession to allow them to have the chance to finish and score. The most important difference with all the other positional possession games is that all the free players are placed in crucial roles in the games as they would have in the most important systems of play we see on the pitch in modern soccer: 1-4-3-3, 1-4-2-3-1, 1-3-5-2, 1-4-4-2. Another interesting focus of this e-book are the never-ending transitions phases of the exercises; the goal to score is always the same and for this reason when the defenders recover the ball they must replace themselves on the pitch looking for the help of the free players and they look for it again when they have to organize a new attacking move. It would be very interesting to find a physical training point of view on the games; as they are small sided games, with the coach who always kicks new balls inside the pitch, they can be useful also for athletic workouts for the players, changing the role every established limit of time. The sequence of the exercises depends on the level of complexity as the games are always organized with a goalkeeper and 4 vs 4 duels with two free players or 3 vs 3 duels with four free players; all these games are easier for the attacking team as one of the main goal is to create finishing chances and score.

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.
