Three Defensive Strategies Using Virtually Any Formation

This video gives three different defensive strategies using virtually any formation.  The three defensive set-ups can be transitioned from one to the other very easily.  The reason I made the video is to demonstrate how coaches may want to look at the idea of formations in a different way.  I see to many coaches get stuck on the idea of a 433, 442 diamond, 4231, 343, 352 etc.  My point is that a formation is just a starting point – I use the example of these three different defensive set-ups to help prove the point.  Be sure to check out all my books on (under my name) and visit my cognitive soccer instructors website at
