The Importance of Communication (Even at the Pro Level)

[Köln v Düsseldorf, 5-24-20]

Yes, this is week 2 back from quarantine, so teams are rusty, but such a glaring (and juvenile) error on Köln’s part, and at a crucial point in the game. This goal would have tied the game. Instead, Düsseldorf score again a few minutes later to take a 2-0 lead, when the game should have been tied 1-1 and, arguably, the momentum should have shifted to Köln.

In any case, let this be a lesson on how crucial communication is at any level. You could make the argument (easily) that that lack of communication cost Köln the game.


Plyometrics Exercise

This is similar the movement from cone to cone laterally conditioning that I’ve done but the close range, balance, and plyometric aspect is an interesting variation. There are other videos on her feed of doing something similar to the cone to cone and numbering them but including math to get to the number, e.g. instead of saying ‘1’, she said 5/5, all to increase cognitive ability / keeping up with speed of play.

Some pretty cool tools from the Bologna team. Not sure they’re in the budget….

Sometimes You Have To Just Give Up A Corner

RB Leipzig at Dortmund, 8-26-18

A reaction save, definitely, but the keeper gets enough hand on the ball that he could have parried it over the endline. He essentially serves that up for the goal.

Staying Light on your Feet

I, as I’m sure many coaches do, constantly am reminding my players about not being flat-footed, about staying light on their foot and keeping them moving. Saw this from the warm-ups of the Italy – San Marino game and thought it was a great illustration of what we mean when we tell players to stay light on their feet and to keep their feet moving. So many players misunderstand why we advocate for that but this video does a nice job illustrating how much more lively play is, even in the simplest of warm-ups, when they’re not flat-footed.
