DEVELOPING CREATIVE DEFENDERS

future football
FUTURE FOOTBALL

WILL BE :

FASTER.- ball speed between players,player movement, decision making,technical implementation.

UNORTHODOX.- un-expected,unusual skills will be necessary.

VARIED.- game tempo,technique requirements,game styles

INTELLIGENT.- individual,team-tactical decision making.

DISGUISED.- deceit to beat the block and stubborn defenders.

POSSESSION BASED.- ball retention,precision and incision with possession.

INVENTIVE.- more “solo” players and “mavericks” will flourish.

UNIVERSALITY – will be paramount - all must play as necessary.

INSTANCY – will be crucial. (NOW is the time.)

ATHLETICISM. - Significantly enhanced.

GAME STYLE CHANGES SINCE 1992 !

defending implications
Defending Implications.
  • Longer defending phases – capability for prolonged defending.
  • More defensive decisions and directional changes per game.
  • More split second directional changes to make at high speed.
  • Calculate ball speed and trajectory rapidly.
  • Increased demand for mobility range in lower body especially.
  • Increased demand for agility, acceleration, deceleration, explosion.
  • Increased demand for lower limb and foot speed.
  • Increased demand for rapid changes in stride cadence.
  • Quicker defensive activity in response to unorthodoxy and speed.
  • Excellence in defending alone in counter attack situations. (ie at speed some 30-40 yds from goal.) moving backwards ,sideways etc
  • Increased demand to defend against quick interplay near to goal.
  • Defensive intelligence ( “knowing”) and ability to read and respond to events will be paramount.
