I've made a new thread due to the old thread being a testing thread and am now happy to announce that the tactic is up to scratch, I hope you have a lot of success and enjoy it as much as I have.
What is the tactic's philosophy?
- Short precise passing
- Quick tempo and high intense pressing
- Free roaming with high creative freedom (10 players attack, 10 players defend, a lot of interchanging)
- High defensive line
- Wing/Full backs and Wingershug the touchline to maximize the width
I personally do 1 week off Team Cohesion and 1 week off Tactics on repeat until the season starts, at this point I put it on balanced , average intensity. For match training I always prefer to use defensive positioning which I highly recommend, I also allow rest before and after matches. Remember to train the players in their individual roles!
This is what I mean by individual roles
Keeper - Just a general solid keeper
Centre-backs - Passing, Composure, Tackling, Positioning etcetera (Agger, Subotic, Williams..)
Wing-backs - Pace, Stamina, Crossing, Tackling etcetera (Walker, Johnson, Angel..)
BWM's - Tackling, Strength, Passing, Stamina etcetera (Dembele, Leiva, Britton..)
Wingers - Pace, Flair, Creativity, Crossing (Dyer, Lennon, Di Maria..)
Complete Forward - Finishing, Heading, Composure etcetera (Cisse, Adebayor, Kwueke..)
Team talks, critical that you use them to description!
All team talks done on assertive
Easy home games - Expect to win
Tough home/away games - For the fans
Lesser opposition away - Relax - Expect to win
Half time if winning - Doing well keep it up
Drawing against lesser opposition - Far from pleased
Drawing against same/better opposition - For the fans , Keep it up
Post match if won - Very pleased , Similar
If drawn, lost against lesser opposition - Not happy
(for away and home and use it at home against good opposition)
If drawn, lost against similar/better opposition away - Unlucky
What success has been achieved with this tactic?
