Dear Parents, Guardians and Players
Over the last week, Adem has set players some fitness exercises, Danny & Max have given players some technical exercises to practice. Now we are giving players some game scenarios homework that will challenge players thinking about what they would look to do in a particular situation. The idea here is to have players think about all the possible options available and write down what they would do and explain why they have chosen this option. We look forward to receiving the players homework.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Please send your responses to the questions via the form at the bottom of this page or email [email protected]
Regards
Paul Montgomery

Task Two – Defensive Principals

Part A: How do we defend in this situation?

We have just lost the ball in the attacking half with 7 players out of the game. What should be our focus on defending?

  1. Counter Press
  2. Regroup

Focus on key players (Right Back, x2 Centre Backs and Recovering Midfielders)


    Part B: How do we defend this situation?

    We have just conceded a goal from a counter-attack. What could our defenders have done differently which may have prevented the goal?


    Task Three – Player Analysis

    Choose a player in the position you play and identify three things the player did well and one thing to improve on.
