       THE SWEEPER SYSTEM


Factors that would suit the sweeper system


       Markers would prefer…….
A. Opponents where they can see them and the ball,
preferably in front of them,with backs to goal.

B. Opponents who make no attempts to attack the spaces
behind them - with and without the ball.

C. To be goalside of opponents and have the chance to intercept

D. Opponents who are static and wait for passes to arrive

E. To operate in areas and in roles where they are defensively
effective

F. To have the security of the sweeper behind
        THE SWEEPER WOULD PREFER...

A. To remain in a “free” role
B. For play to remain central, and for markers to track runners
C. Not to leave his position behind the markers
D. Slow and predictable build up play
E. Crosses to be delivered to the near post area
F. Passes made behind defence and to the sides that he can
easilly read or intercept
G. In possession, to have the time and freedom to choose to
pass or carry the ball as required
H. To have the opponents keep possession in front of his defence
CAUSING PROBLEMS FOR THE SWEEPER SYSTEM



      Problems are likely to be caused if…..
    1. Forward players continually work to lose their markers,
              and try to threaten the space behind them
2. Forward players take up BLIND SIDE positions when the ball
                          is in flank positions
   3. Forwards combine with each other either in possession of
     the ball, or runs off the ball. Try to pull defenders out of
         their familiar defending areas for others to attack
4. Forward players push defenders back toward their own goal,
           and so no cover is available from the sweeper.
5. Midfield players make forward runs with and without the ball
6. Midfield or defenders break through onto markers, especially
                     in wide blind side positions
 7. Your team has the ability to change the point of attack from
             defensive numbers to more spacious areas
          8. Quick combination play in the attacking third
9. Crosses are delivered that eliminate the sweepers near post/side
                    position and the goalkeeper.

10. Fast counter attacks before defence has the chance to organize
                  MATCH STRATEGY



A teams plan of campaign revealing its aims and approach
                     to the game.



A joint production between players and coach that seeks to
 establish the way the team will handle all situations that
                     arise in a match
                     SYSTEM

 The deployment of players on the field with which
the team tries to implement and impose it’s strategy




                     TACTICS

Individual and collective manoeuvres used to defeat
opponents so as to make the strategical aims possible
                  POSITIVE STRATEGIES

               To score as many goals as possible
        To score but to concede as few goals as possible
        To press the play into opponents half of the field
            To dominate and control midfield areas
                To withdraw and counter attack
                      To control possession
To control play by outnumbering opponents wherever the ball is

                   DEFENSIVE STRATEGY
     To regain possession before ball leaves Attacking 1/3rd

Mark all opponents tightly in our defensive 1/2, and track runs
           behind and through our defensive line
To encourage the opponents to come forward in order to regain
               possession and counter attack
       FACTORS AFFECTING STRATEGY

Strengths, weaknesses of own team technically, tactically,
athletically and psychologically. Injuries.

                      GAME PLAN


    How we plan and intend to exert control over the
    technical and tactical events that occur during the game,
    in order to influence strategies to our advantage.

1. The anticipated system, tactics and strategies of the opposition
2. What you think your players are capable of and can deliver
3. Identifiable “events” that you can influence
4. Rehearsal
