ESPZEN SS Black 's Match Report
With 9 players this week, substitution roster was simple... and this week we paired our 8 field out players with a team mate to form a partnership in defense. So all 8 players had the opportunity to play defense with a fixed team mate for 18 minutes...... outside of the defense players played at least one more position as we look to build our football intelligence in all our players.
Whilst the score was impressive.... possibly the match play dropped a little today as we rushed to go forward a little too quick at times instead of showing patience with the ball ...often the score can disguise performance.... Players a become more familiar with our press, and are now thinking about this more and more .... and players are begining to scan the pitch to think about their next move some times... and we will build on this to make it soon a habit...
Some nice combination play at times, and once we cut out the loose passes and passes to nowhere... the team will become very difficult to beat... as we will enjoy the ball and long periods of possession.
Leo who pulled off a spectacular save today for the Sky Cameras, was captain and awarded MotM to the Robbie for his good work rate and winning the tackle count contest... a good leader on the pitch and sets a great example to others.
