I love this video. Obviously not the only way to play or the only formation to use, but the simplicity of explanation is compelling. Of course, there are always questions:
- Why would you use this formation over another?
- How do you teach it?
- When is this formation not ideal?
- What type of players does this suit best?
- What defense is best against it?
- What is “Plan B”?
Still, for a soccer parent like myself, this is quality content, a small plank in my educational scaffolding.
And as an added bonus, now compare to this Barcelona analysis. Interesting, no?
