  • I went along to watch the U10s at the weekend and it was their first game of the new season so it is always nice to go along and give them some support. However when I got there it was chaos.

    The manager had gone to the usual pavilion where the goals were kept only to find a new padlock had been put on the door and he couldn’t get the goals and equipment out.

    Undaunted he drove to our other pitch where we have a much larger pavilion and all the goals you could wish for at his disposal. From here he got the goals he needed and rushed back as time was now not on his side.

    Setting up goals can be a bit of a pain but there were lots of dads to help – however the next problem he was faced with was that the groundsman had measured out a very small pitch and now he was worried it was too small, as the players could score from their own half.

    So with the use of a few cones the pitch was made slightly bigger which he was happier with. Then one of the dads shouted that one of the goal corners was missing … off

    he went back to the clubhouse to retrieve a corner for the goal.

    The poor man was worn out by the time the referee got the players sorted and the game kicked off. Of course it didn’t bother the players who had been playing with the ball and generally having fun while he was rushing to and fro to sort out the pitch.

    It really is important that things are checked out before you go to the first match of the season or that you know where everything is during the season. There is nothing more frustrating than finding out that things are missing or have been changed without you knowing.

    It is fairly simple to check things

    are in place before matches the weekend before or the night before. I am always checking I have things – especially things like net ties that hold the net on the goal! We didn’t have any this weekend at the U15s game and the net caused problems (that were solved with sock tape!).

    The moral of the tale is that being prepared for the game shouldn’t be neglected because the time spent sorting problems out should be used to warm the players up not finding the right equipment.

    Best Player In The Team Gareth�Bale�has�been�in�sensational�form�for�Wales�in�the�Euro�2016�qualifiers,� which�was�highlighted�in�the�game�against�Belgium�in�June�when�players�like� Eden�Hazard,�Courtois,�De�Bruyne�and�Benteke�looked�a�fearsome�force

    F or Wales Gareth Bale is a match winner. In the latest round of Euro qualifiers the mighty Belgium gave Bale one chance and he took it when Radja Nainggolan fluffed a clearance of the ball.

    It needed great composure – Bale took a touch on his chest before stroking low through Courtois’ legs with his weaker right foot. Chris Coleman, the Wales manager, had said that Bale had the ability to “change the game in a second”. Here was that second. Bale had his seventh goal in seven international appearances and Wales had something to protect, something to fire them towards the Euro 2016 finals.

    ATTACK LIKE BALE

    Gareth Bale in action with Belgium’s Radja Nainggolan

    What a night for Wales. Belgium had arrived as the second-ranked team in world football. They had not lost a qualifying tie since October 2011. They had conceded only one goal during the current campaign But Gareth Bale’s Wales beat them.

    Bale has an endless list of attributes. His pace is a worry for even the fastest of defenders, while his ability to score spectacular goals from distance means he can’t be afforded a yard of space. With close control too, he can skip past opponents with a single piece of skill and the fact that many of his attacking moves begin from within his own half makes him very difficult to mark.

    We shouldn’t underestimate Bale’s strength either; at 1.83m tall, he is the

    perfect build for an athlete and it’s rare to see him brushed off the ball. With his height and power he can climb to win headers and score, like he did against Cyprus with a thumping header to win the game for Wales.

    In looking to help your players take on something of Bale’s style, you will bring an athletic, attacking and gamechanging edge to their performances. Moreover, your ability to spot players who could benefit from a change of position like Bale, who famously asked if he could give up his number three shirt at Spurs because he was “not a left back anymore”, could bring the best out of individuals across your team.

  • In this game you can create overloads to get your attackers taking advantage of situations where they should be making and scoring goals

    ATTACK LIKE BALE

    Player movement Ball movement Run with ball Shot

    1 In an unopposed attack a number 10 attacking midfielder starts with the ball and plays a one-two with the winger then a one-two with the attacker before shooting at the goal

    2 Look for good technique in each phase of the move, pass, receive, move and shoot

    3 Now play a 5v5 and look for players to pass and move like they were doing in part one

    4 One player must run around the pitch on the call of the coach – the team with overloads must press and try to score before the player gets back

    5 Now call out two numbers so one team has a big advantage to score

    Fast Overloads in Attack

    WHY USE IT To put players in a numbers up or down situation by removing players from a team.

    SET UP You need balls, bibs, cones and goals using an area 30 x 20 yards. You need small 2 yard goals (two per goalline) or large goals with keepers. Every player on each team has a number. We used 10 players in the session.

    HOW TO PLAY We are working on setting up goalscoring chances here so practice with an unopposed link up to goal set up – midfielders link with attackers. In the main game play a 5v5 give all players a number from 1 to 5 and when the coach calls out a
