Sebastian Hoeneß took over VfB Stuttgart in spring 2023 as bottom of the table and led the club to relegation. Just under a year later , Stuttgart qualified for the Champions League for the first time in 14 years. By Danilo Kupke, former assistant coach for Werder Bremen’s under-16s and former analyst at Union Berlin’s academy Stuttgart once again emphasises possession football under Hoeneß (57 % possession the third best value in the Bundesliga). VfB are currently exciting the Bundesliga with their many playful solutions and tactical tricks. Defensively, Stuttgart stand out with their courage ..read more

What does the future of football hold for us? Why is the Guardiola-style so dominant? Can it be overcome by new “relationist” ideas? We will analyse and discuss the latest tactical trends, venture a prediction about upcoming developments and demonstrate how a unique playing philosophy can be created. Introduction If you have not followed the discussion about “Relationism”, we can recommend the discussion on it that we had before on our website and this introductory article from Jamie Hamilton who have coined the term. I expressed some thoughts in our (German) analysis of the Club World Cup b ..read more

SV Academy: Xabi Alonso’s Possession-Play-Revolution
Spielverlagerung
by MR
5M ago
We want to take a look at the team of the moment in a two-hour seminar at the Academy. What makes Bayer so strong and how can their style of play be classified in regard to tactical theory and history? Leverkusen are top of the Bundesliga table and we want to look in detail at what Xabi Alonso puts on the pitch there. With an attacking system that relies on very short distances between players rather than maximising space, a major paradigm shift may also be involved. Furthermore, the elements of the team harmonise fantastically and are catalysed by the exceptional Florian Wirtz. Here is the ..read more

Protagonists Of The Game – Between Absolutism and Relativism

In this article we are trying to summarize a discussion about Positionism and Relationism in a somewhat different way. This discourse has evolved in various ways and shapes, often without a clear overview of the status quo of itself. By doing so, it did reach it’s intended goal already: Discuss football differently (again). Now we will try to give perspective and an update on the discussion by updating some premises of itself but also giving an outlook into practice and practitioners. Welcome to Spielverlagerung Discussion. Jamie, who brought us into this mess, and István, who is living in it ..read more

Arteta’s Arsenal Rebuild
Spielverlagerung

2y ago
Arsenal are in the midst of a rebuild, and since Mikel Arteta’s appointment in December 2019 a transformation of the Gunners playing style has taken place. Perhaps influenced by his shadowing of Pep Guardiola whilst at Manchester City, Arteta’s philosophy has turned the North London side into one of the most attractive and aesthetically pleasing teams in the Premier League, producing both an identity and improvement in results. Although, after falling short in their pursuit of Champions League football, Arsenal must progress further still next season if they are to reach the pinnacle of Europe ..read more

Tactical Theory: Rest-Attack
Spielverlagerung
by JD
2y ago
The term rest-defense, translated from the German “Restverteidigung”, has become more known (and utilized) in recent years. Its equivalent on the other hand, is still rarely talked and even less (consciously) used in coaching, though more frequently by players on an unconscious level.  In order to explain rest-attack, we will shortly utilize a brief explanation of rest-defense and mirror it from there. Basically, rest-defense is a catch-all term to describe the part of a possession phase where some players can’t contribute to the attack anymore and, depending on the possibility of a ..read more

Arne’s Army: How Slot is regenerating Feyenoord
Spielverlagerung
by JD
2y ago
With six wins from their first nine official games, scoring 22 goals, and a friendly win over Atletico Madrid, Feyenoord have had a pretty good start to the season. Especially considering the fact that their new manager Arne Slot is trying to implement a completely new style of play.    The previous coach, Dick Advocaat, had Feyenoord play in a defensive block with very intensive man-marking duties. Slot chooses to have Feyenoord press high-up while also preferring to build-up from the back and applying intensive counterpressing when possession is lost.  Therefore, I reckon ..read more
