Case Study: A Typical 4-3-3 into a 3-4-3
(1) The Sweeper Goalkeeper
(2 & 3) The Wing Backs
(4 & 5) The Central Defenders
THE MIDFIELD TRIO (6, 8, 10): (6) The Controller (Defensive Midfielder)
(8) The Second Controller or Central Midfield Playmaker
(10) The Box to Box or Advanced Central Midfielder
THE ATTACKING TRIO (7, 11 & 9): (7 & 11) The Inside Forwards
(9) The False 9 or Central Striker
9. TACTICAL SOLUTIONS AND VARIATIONS OF THE FORM
Tactical Problem 1: Struggling to Control Possession and Build up from the Back from a Goal Kick.
Playing From The Defence Through To The Midfield.
Tactical Problem 2: The opposition are sitting in a deep low block (also known as “Parking the Bus”) and it has become increasingly difficult to find spaces to penetrate further forward
‘The False Touch’ – Example
Tactical Problem 3: The profile of players available to you make it increasingly difficult to control the games through the theoretical 4-3-3 (3-4-3) and requires a positional system that still provides the options both in attack and to play out from the back
Tactical Problem 4: You have set your midfield up with 2 controllers and 1 number 10 further forward.
Your team have a lot of possession but are struggling to play passes forward and control
possession in the final third
Tactical Problem 5: You find that your defensive line is too slow to play with the high line necessary for the theoretical system of play and is suffering under the pressure of quicker strikers
