I've decided to have a go at creating a tactic based on how England played under Sven Goran-Eriksson from 2001-2006. Above all I want this to be a discussion and to receive ideas about how and what to change etc.
Standard 442 - They rarely budged from this shape except to try 4141 occasionally. http://imgur.com/BHVQHd6
-Slightly More Direct Passing (the team looked to play forward most of the time to Beckham to swing in those crosses or for Heskey to nod down to his partner.)
-Pass into Space (again related to above. They always looked to explore Owen's pace in behind.)
-Higher Tempo (running about for the full 90 minutes trying to unsettle the opposition.)
-Play Wider (regularly looked to Beckham in attack)
-Counter Press (Looked to win back the ball)
-Counter - (Liked a quick direct counter attack)
Take Long Kicks (The keepers (James, Robinson etc. generally hoofed it long)
Out of Posession
I've left it blank here as I'm unsure really how they behaved in defence considering they switched between attacking and tightening up.
No PI's o'r OI's.
Thanks for reading!
