Mick Lyon puts his defensive philosophy on display in this soccer clinic presentation. A major part of building a defensive unit is coaching the back four. A main concept for the back four is team shape, which is broken down into eight pieces. On an overhead outline, Lyon shows eight elements of holding the back four. Keeping the ball in front allows you to adjust and read. Depth is a concept that is directly related to your teams' goal. The 3 & 1 and 1 & 3 is a concept that must be mastered to play the back four. Lyon explains communication and dropping with a purpose. Moving and sliding as a unit covers for wide holes that are constantly being created. Because getting beat is a part of the game, recovery is an important aspect of this concept. A distinction is made between driving and tackling. Tackling is a calculated search for the ball. A player should always tackle hard in attempts to win the ball. Defenders are taught to counter attack by moving the play to the opposite side of the field. To cement this teaching, he uses actual game footage to fully explain the eight principles. This instructional DVD can be a tool to strengthen your defense, team communication, and gain a greater understanding of how to keep your opponent from scoring goals.54 minutes. 2006.
