Learn An Effective New Soccer Concept: THE FUNNEL
THE MAGIC OF THE FUNNEL
Three years ago I came up with a new soccer concept. I called it "THE FUNNEL".
I wanted my team to become more effective on the pitch always have an “aggressive” approach towards the goal when attacking. I also wanted them to play better defense and wanted to teach them to play with and without the ball. In other words: I wanted them to become more effective.
When I say “aggressive” I mean always move to an effective position on the field where the main objective would be to score more goals, become stronger at defense, and understand how advanced soccer should be played. A fast and strong player can be hard to beat, but a smart player can be devastating. What if you could turn your fast and strong players forming an effective and devastating team?
If you are thinking that this is something hard to teach, well you are absolutely right!
Nothing is harder than teach players how to read the game of soccer. The simple idea of playing without the ball can become a very abstract one and a nightmare for coaches specially when the season is just around the corner.
THE FUNNEL is a very simple concept but incredibly effective!
It teaches players how to be in the right spot at the right time when attacking and defending. They will read the game and apply advanced soccer concepts without even thinking about it.
WHY THE FUNNEL?
- Have you ever wondered how to teach young players to read the game?
- Have you ever wondered why your team is so ineffective when attacking?
- Have you ever wondered why your team is so weak at defense?
- Have you ever struggled to teach advanced soccer ideas to your players?
- Have you ever lost a game because your defense fell apart with players out of their positions?
- Have you ever asked yourself why your players are so spread out on the pitch leaving those huge gaps?
I think every coach will struggle at some point to teach certain soccer concepts to their players.
Young players can't read the game, it takes time, sometimes this can be a very long process. Sometimes older players never had anybody to teach them the right way so they ,have been repeating the same mistakes season after season.
Even professional players, due to poor technical development when they were young, can struggle with simple things.
A SOCCER SCENARIO:
Have you ever told your players to “SPREAD OUT” even when the ball was on the right wing? Have you ever forced your players to stay wide open on the left wing even when the ball was being played on the right wing?
LET'S THINK ABOUT IT:
Your team has the possession of the ball on the right wing, you yell to your players “SPREAD OUT” the team does what you “asked”, they spread out.
My question is:
How will players on the opposite wing help your attack attempt? The truth is that they won't. Your team will attack with less players.
SECOND SOCCER SCENARIO:
Your team loses possession of the ball. Your team is wide open on both wings. The result? Your team struggles to reset leaving huge gaps on the field where a smart opponent can crush your defense. Sorry coach, you have just opened the gates for a painful defeat!
That was only one scenario, as there are many more.
THE FUNNEL will transform your team. You can use THE FUNNEL with players from U8 up to professionals. Futsal, Beach Soccer, Middle School, High School, College up MLS, it doesn't matter.
One single concept for attacking, defending and reading the game no matter what soccer level. It can't get any simpler than this.
