The 5-Minute Football Coach - Issue #8
Twitter lists, Switching play, Playing without the ball
Here is your selection of links for this week, enjoy!
Twitter Lists of the week
If Twitter is your thing, feel free to check out three lists I have created: one of Coaches, one of Clubs (mostly in SE England for now) and one for Coaching-related advice. As you’ll see there is a lot going on on Twitter around youth football!
Practice of the week
A good game to encourage switching play and using channels. Always nice to see a coach actually delivering it in his own style!
Topic of the week
A nice article from Training Ground Guru on making runs into space and the importance of playing without the ball.
When you play a match, it is statistically proven that players have the ball for three minutes on average. So the most important thing is what you do during those 87 minutes when you do not have the ball." - Johan Cruyff
I hope this was useful - have a great week!
