The 5-Minute Football Coach #39
Football tennis, Top reads, Puyol
Here are your highlights for this week, the last one of 2019!
Practice of the week
Football tennis for warmup - great idea! We actually did this an FA Level 1 practical exercise and it worked great.
Suggestions: allow for 1 or 2 rebounds depending on your players’ ability, and progress from 1v1 to 2v2 and 4v4.
Ideas of the week
The Training Ground Guru has a nice recap of their top 10 reads of the year, which are well worth going through. Some really good stuff in there!
Topic of the week
Football is a competitive sport, and footballers (“especially at a professional level”) don’t always display the best behaviour… Well, what about this from Puyol:
We’ll hopefully see a lot more of that, at all levels of football, in 2020. Let’s make it happen!
So here we are, this latest issue marks the end of the 1st year of the 5-Minute Football Coach. A huge thank you to you for making it amazing! We now have 200+ subscribers as well as 40+ followers on Facebook - meaning that each issue is now seen by nearly 300 coaches every week…
Thank you again and very best wishes for 2020
