They are all playing well as a collective unit and each player in the unit has confidence in and believes in the next player in the team.

At the centre of all football teams are the relationships between the players. Each player has a relationship with the next player and with the team as a whole.

Introduction I get asked this a lot by coaches in my job, “where can I find drills/sessions I can use with my players”. it is something I covered in another post the best coaching resources.  It comes down to this, there are millions of sessions on the internet and if you do trawl through them and find one you like, it will still need to be changed and adapted to suit the needs of your players for you to get the best out of it.
