There something funny that happens to Barcelona when they face an opponent wearing white at the Camp Nou that just flips the switch […]

Pressing in part or all of the game is en vogue. I saw this good article that breaks down the basics. Good to show to players so they can hear it from another voice. If a team decides to apply pressure on the ball, they have to coordinate their off the ball actions in order […]

Game of Throw ins – restarts integral to the game

December 11th, 2018Posted by BJ Pheasant

Restarts are an underrated tactical area in soccer. I argue elsewhere that 5% of practice time on restarts will significantly improve efficacy.

Well, other than being two northwestern English clubs, they are also the only clubs […]
