Attacking and Defending Out of the 4-2-3-1Attacking and Defending Out of the 4-2-3-1
with Alan Kirkup, University of Florida Assistant Coach,
former player for Manchester United FC; over 27 years coaching experience including 18 years as a head coach at the collegiate level (over 200 wins)

The 4-2-3-1 formation has become wildly popular after the powerhouse Spanish and German National Teams used it to dominate their competition throughout the 2010 World Cup. Alan Kirkup expertly combines lecture, diagramming, practice and competition footage to help you successfully implement the 4-2-3-1 system.

Once you learn the tactical nature of the 4-2-3-1, Coach Kirkup will show you the process of coaching the formation starting with position-by-position technical development, building up to small-sided games, and ultimately full-field competition. Key coaching points include:

  • building the attack through the back of the defense
  • creating 2 v 1 situations on the attack
  • making play unpredictable in the attacking third of the pitch
  • creating an understanding of the 4-2-3-1 by coaching it in a progressive method
Once all the steps of building your system are shown, a series of demanding, competitive training games are presented in-depth so that you can make the 4-2-3-1 work for you.

In addition to all the excellent coaching tips provided for you, this DVD concludes with a special segment designed to show you how to use the 4-2-3-1 to take advantage of special situations. Learn how to best use the 4-2-3-1 to win when defending a 1-0 lead or having to score when down a goal with ten minutes left.

Knowing how a system works is one thing, but coaching it to your players in a way they can understand is another. Coach Kirkup provides you with all the essential tools you will need to use this system to its fullest potential.

Attacking Exercises to Improve Soccer TechniqueAttacking Exercises to Improve Soccer Technique
with Alan Kirkup, University of Florida Assistant Coach,
former player for Manchester United FC; over 27 years coaching experience including 18 years as a head coach at the collegiate level (over 200 wins)

Possession based soccer relies on the quality and technical ability of the players. Teams that control the ball also control the attack.

Alan Kirkup shares drills that will challenge your players' technical ability and precision in a low pressure defensive environment. Players are taught techniques to maintain possession, effective attacking runs, and attacking combination play ending with shots on goal.

You'll see drills that allow players to practice various attacking strategies including individual feints, player combinations, dummies, straight runs / diagonal passes, and diagonal runs / straight passes. These drills will provide your players with ideas they can implement during match conditions. The focus on technique will provide your players ample opportunity to learn essential skills and develop the confidence to use them.

Both players and coaches will get new ideas by watching this video. Players will learn the importance of receiving on the back foot and using the spin out move to shield the ball. Coaches will learn many new drills their players will benefit from and enjoy.

Successful implementation of these techniques will help your team get past their opponents and score more goals.

Running a Dynamic Soccer PracticeRunning a Dynamic Soccer Practice
with Alan Kirkup, University of Florida Assistant Coach,
former player for Manchester United FC; over 27 years coaching experience including 18 years as a head coach at the collegiate level (over 200 wins)

Maintaining possession of the ball requires technique, good decision making, and a solid physical foundation. Alan Kirkup uses continuous activity drills that contain elements of both conditioning and maintaining possession while under pressure.

Coach Kirkup's practice, recorded in a live practice setting, progresses from individual work to team work. The first part of practice concentrates on the players improving their touch, and you will get to see many productive ways that the team can do this in an efficient manner. From a simple one touch drill done with a partner that can improve a player's touch on the ball to a passing drill that involves the entire team, these drills stress the importance of passing and moving and it also gives them options of varying the sequence of passes

The practice progresses to several small sided games that demand a great touch on the ball, precision passing, and great communication between the players, which are vital to having success on the field. These small sided games have a great carryover to game like situations because they demand the players work together and have great communication.

The practice concludes with a very fast paced 4 v 4 competitive drill that provides for many touches on the ball and shots on goal. Players are increasingly challenged as Coach Kirkup creates limitations within the drills and adjusts the rules of the game.

Your players will enjoy the dynamic drills presented by Coach Kirkup. The continuous nature of the drills allows players plenty of touches and opportunities for imaginative play while helping to improve their match fitness level.

Kirkup shows you how to integrate multiple drills and games into your practices that will maximize your players' physical and technical abilities. Kirkup clearly demonstrates how to start, build and complete an efficient practice that will push your players to their limits. The drills he presents are simple to set up and can be enjoyed by players at all levels, yet they are so dynamic and challenging that your players won't even know they are improving their conditioning! Key coaching points include:

  • adjusting exercises and training games in order to isolate the right or left foot
  • varying the objectives of exercises and games to train for specific technical needs
  • encouraging players to constantly move in order to keep fitness levels high
  • forcing players to move quickly in preparation for game conditions
  • using training time to maximize both physical and technical skills
Coaches can even use these exercises as pre-game warm ups to help their players get extra touches on the ball.

After demonstrating vigorous and creative drills, Coach Kirkup concludes the DVD with a fast paced, dynamic scoring game that keeps every player involved. Using a small field and short time intervals, you too can use this game to motivate your players to stretch beyond their current technical and physical abilities.

With the proper use of Kirkup's drills and games, your players may not want to leave the training pitch!
