Use this plan to put a spin on the phrase "defence is the best form of offence" - by attacking from the back and using your goalkeeper to launch the counter attack with a strong, offensive throw out.
If when your keeper has the ball they play a tentative, short pass to the nearest man not only will you give the opposition a chance to recover and regain their shape, but you will also remove any sense of urgency and verve from the move.

The benefit of this attacking move is that it will help you to prevent your team becoming predictable and easy to defend against. Try this session today and give your players a new attacking scope.
