I use these training units towards the end of the micro cycle to coach the specific tactics I want my team to follow in the upcoming match.
The reason I do it at the end of the week is double. First of all the best possible memorization of the instructions and secondly the form of the training unit that follows the principles of "tapering" to achieve the best possible performance.
Passing drill in the shape of "Y".
Every 2 minutes I grow up the "Y" reaching up to the last poles I have placed.
In this way, players are trained at different distance passess, changing the way the ball is received and taking "high intensity runs" by preparing their cardiorespiratory system.
Game 10v10 with 1 GK at 2/3 of the pitch.
The game always starts with the defending team (basically the starting lineup in formation that I'm thinking of starting in the match).
The attacking team follows the formation we expect the opponent to place in the match and aims to achieve a goal at the main post.
My central defenders open to the side of the box and the full backs go up high. One of the two defensive midfielders descends between the defenders to support the build up and the second looking for space in the area between the lines. The goal of the defending team is with a gameplay to pass the 3 gates located at about 60 meters by driving the ball.
If the ball is lost anywhere on the pitch, nearby players put pressure on the ball holder, those in front of the ball are urged to return immediately behind their imaginary straight line and those behind the ball to divide the markings to avoid rapid aggressive activity with long balla of the lines.
Every free-game activity lasts up to 30 '' to 1 'and the break is complete until the players of both teams are reinstated.
In the two-set break, the players of each team, on their own, do a mini-account of what makes them difficult and what they have to do to achieve their goal.
