This is the 4-4-2 of 5-A-Side strategies. Simple, disciplined and balanced from defence to attack.
ALL OUT ATTACK
If you think goals are the order of the day, then this is the formation for you. Attack, Attack, Attack!
PARK THE BUS
If you’re expecting a backs against the wall job, load up your team with defenders and cheer the tackles and bookings.
Now and then you get a game where the goalkeepers probably wish they’d stayed at home - We’ve got just the formation for that!
SHOOT ON SIGHT
If you’re expecting the defenders to be left for dust, this could be the way to go - let your strikers rack up the shots.
Time to go for it! With just one defender and one midfielder behind you, this formation is all about the firepower.
KEEPER - To Concede X Goals:
Every successful team in history has been laid upon the foundation of a great goalkeeper. But no goalie is superhuman, and in Five-A-Side, you choose how many goals you think your goalie will let in. Remember though, you can also support your keeper to the hilt and back a clean sheet.
CRUNCHER - To Make X Tackles:
If you think one side are going to be on the back foot, then stick a cruncher in your team to rack up the tackles. It doesn’t matter if he gets booked, it’s the tackles which count.
HACKER - To Be Carded:
Somebody has to keep the referee busy. And if you think the man in black will be dishing out a card to a particular player, then it doesn’t matter how or why he’s in the book, he’s the hacker for you.
BALLER - To Make X Passes:
Sideways, backwards, short, long. It doesn’t matter what sort of pass your baller makes, a pass is a pass. And remember, central defenders pass the ball more than you think in the modern game
PLAYMAKER - To Have X Assists:
While your baller racks up the passes, the playmaker is the one who sets up the goals. Got a player in mind to provide that wicked ball across or split-through pass? You’ve found your Five-A-Side playmaker.
SNIPER - To Have X Shots:
You can’t fault a striker for trying, right? It doesn’t matter how unlikely the shot or even if it goes into row z, if you think a player will shoot whenever he gets a sight of goal, then the Sniper role is the way to go.
SHARP-SHOOTER - To Have X Shots on Target:
But of course, every sniper would rather be a sharp-shooter. Get a shot on target and you never know what might happen. The Sharp-Shooter role is all about testing the keeper with shots on target.
CHANCER - To Have X Shots Outside The Box:
When they go in, they’re spectacular. And not everyone has the talent to pull it off. But if you’ve got your eye on a long-distance genius or perhaps a set-piece wizard, get him in the chancer role.
FINISHER- To Score X Goals:
Goals, goals, goals. Nothing else matters in this role. It could be a striker with 20+ a season or a defender towering in with a couple of headers. Goals are the only thing a finisher is concerned about in your Five-A-Side team.
