  1. 1. RECOVERY FROM A SHOCKING DEFEAT: FLAGONS 0 RUSSIA TODAY 3 Prepared for the Flagons Post Match Analysis 25/10/2010 RECOVERY FROM A SHOCKING DEFEAT: FLAGONS 0 RUSSIA TODAY 3 Prepared for the Flagons Post Match Analysis 25/10/2010
  2. 2. • Opportunity to move to 3rd in the league ... yet no-one was taking the game seriously • Pre-game preparation … everyone thought that it was going to be an easy game • Flagons lined-up with many good individual players and subs … but no team • First half order of play was fairly equal with RT gaining slight upper hand towards the end • Second half order of play was unfocused and scatty … no real Flagons order nor control • Individual and team failings were clear … there was not a single category in which Flagons did better than RT and several/most players who should have made more effort • We improve as a team by playing as a team with established partnerships of players across the field, working harder when off the ball and always communicating • We will win the next match by playing to win from the start with strength to beat the Cloggs 2 ... mathematically we can still finish 3rd with a good performance against the Cloggs Executive Summary Failings throughout
  3. 3. • Flagons sitting 4th in the league one point behind the Cloggs • Having won 5 out of the last 6 games • And with a shiny new kit and two new decent players • Cloggs had just drawn 3-3 with the Bhoys • In coldest conditions this year - 6oC overcast, Westernly wind at 4 mph and humidity at 57% • A win would take the Flagons to 3rd in the table • And above the Cloggs for the first time in 2-3 years • But with no consistent striker to replace Oleg to date 3 ... yet no-one was taking the game seriously Background Opportunity to move to 3rd in the league Team Pld Pts 1 Lundbeck United 12 29 2 Pasha FC 11 29 3 Storming Cloggs 10 19 4 Radio City Flagons 11 18 5 Moscow Bhoys 10 15 Player Gls 1 Oleg Khomenko 9 2 Matthew Webb 7 3 Mike Bartley 6 4 Misha Gouchtchine 5 5 Raul Martinez/Steve Newman 4
  4. 4. • A few people turned up just before kick off which was 25 minutes late! as the Cloggs vs Bhoys had overrun • Several people turned up drunk from the night before and therefore played shockingly • The Match Reporter wasn't nominated which didn't effect the performance, but showed the lack of intensity for the game • Nobody knew if we even had a team when we turned up - it was a shock to most people when we eventually had 16 players • And there was no build-up at all throughout the week which may be expected against previous RT teams but they showed up with at least 5 good players this week and with a completely different intensity 4 ... everyone thought that it was going to be an easy game Pre-game preparation Lazy skunks
  5. 5. 5 No photo No photo No photo No photo No photo No photo Per Paul MatthewMike Michael Osamu Moto Kris Nick Andrew Vlad Matti Ruud David Rene No photo Misha Flagons lined-up With many good individual players and subs
  6. 6. 6 No photo No photo No photo No photo No photo No photo Per Paul MatthewMike Michael Osamu Moto Kris Nick Andrew Vlad Matti Ruud David Rene No photo Misha Mike’s talents are wasted on the wing - he should be playing as striker Gaps on either side can be exploited by overlapping players as Pasha did Lack of height and strength in midfield New pairing in attack – two v similar players Flagons lined-up But the team had immediate weaknesses Drawn into centre to cover gaps Very late arrival
  7. 7. • Flagons win the toss and decide to play with the wind. RT kick-off • Initial Flagons pressure with good position in the RT half but amounts to nothing • RT regularly turn over the ball in defense and quickly counter-attack • Flagons make some good defensive interceptions but defenders are often caught one-on-one with RT strikers, just like the Pasha game • Misha turns up half way through the half and goes straight on • Flagons create several chances but they are falling to the wrong players and each one blasted wide … where’s Mike, Per and Paul? • RT gaining confidence and have several attacks end from last minute challenges or are parried away • RT have the upper hand but Flagons are lucky they haven’t scored 7 ... half-time score 0-0 Order of play First half
  8. 8. • Flagons kick-off into the 4mph wind and RT start with confidence from the end of the first half - RT are increasingly winning the 50:50 challenges, gaining many more attacking opportunities • Rene makes two decent saves early on but Flagons are unsettled • The wind has been having an effect on Rene’s goal kicks and a miss-kick goes straight to the RT right attacker. He passes left and it’s neatly slotted home for RT 0-1 • Two RT goals follow in a similar format as RT find themselves in greater numbers against our defense, easy passes and a few tricks later they shoot past Rene to go 0-2 and 0-3 • Flagons increase pressure and a RT substitute running on the pitch to save the ball on the line results in penalty for Flagons … is there time to save the game? • RT’s keeper is playing well (despite being 3 feet tall) and saves Misha’s penalty destroying any hope 8 ... full-time score 0-3 Order of play Second half
  9. 9. 9 So what went awry? Individual and team failings were clear … ... there was not a single category in which Flagons did better than RT
  10. 10. 10 So what went awry? The snooze factor; higher the score lazier/slower the contribution … there are several/most players who could have made more effort
  11. 11. • Give advance notice to the Troika that you will play so they can put together the best team together • Troika to provide an “IN” list before they game and preferably with a starting line-up • Troika to play players in their best role, not put good players in any role • All to have some idea about the opposition before the game and be aware of weaknesses in our team in the context of the opposition • Prepare formation to suit and prepare a subs bench game plan to not expose ourselves later • We need to play with established partnerships of players across the field • We could do some warm ups so that right back and mid work together, centre back and the dog, etc • Make substitutions when we have control of the ball (i.e. our goal kicks) so can ensure everyone knows who is playing where before re-starting the game 11 ... move when off the ball, communicate and work hard How can we improve as a team? Play as a team
  12. 12. 12 How will we win the next match? Play to win from the start with strengths to beat the Cloggs in each role No photo No photo No photo No photo No photo Per Paul MatthewMike Pat Osamu Moto Kris Andy Gwyn Vlad Matti Nick David Rene No photo Misha Raul No photo Michael No photo AndrewRuud No photo Support Kris and force Cloggs into their own half Chase all defenders down Follow Juan so he has no time to do his thing Chase Rainer and block shots/passes Support Raul and block crosses Win the headers in midfield Support Pat and block shots/passes Support Mike and Matthew. Look for the passes and shots Run the defense and dogs Support Mike, Paul and Gwyn and overlap Paul Set calmness and intensity for the team
