In this installment of the Soccer iQ series college soccer coach and best selling author Dan Blank educates coaches and players on the most effective ways to implement a high pressure style of team defending Nearly 80 of goals scored are the result of three or fewer passes and more than half of all goals scored begin when a team wins possession of the ball in its attacking half of the field The numbers clearly indicate a statistical advantage to winning the ball in the opponents end of the field and thats exactly what high pressure is designed to do High pressure is perhaps the most misunderstood term in soccers vocabulary There are countless coaches who want their teams to play high pressure but many of them arent always quite so sure about what that means They tend to translate high pressure into run around like you stole something until we score They only extract the urgency of which the term implies without much understanding of the nuance that makes high pressure a formidable system of team defense Those coaches understand that high pressure requires a high work rate but they dont understand the tactical savvy that can maximize the output of that work As a result their teams feature only the madness but not the method behind successful high pressure High Pressure provides an easy to follow blueprint for coaches and players so they know not only what to do but why they are doing it In this book Dan Blank clarifies the differences between high and low pressure and explains the big picture of high pressure defending You will learn the roles of each position the importance of restraining lines and how to set up pressure funnels to win the ball in the attacking half Coach Blank also details the telltale cues that signal a team to step up or back off its pressure and much much more High pressure defending requires more than just hard work It requires organization communication and an indefatigable team spirit This book will show you how to create and implement these elements to get a maximum return on your teams effort
