FORMATIONS

1-1-2-1

BALANCED

This is the 4-4-2 of 5-A-Side strategies. Simple, disciplined and balanced from defence to attack.


1-1-0-3

ALL OUT ATTACK

If you think goals are the order of the day, then this is the formation for you. Attack, Attack, Attack!


1-3-0-1

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.


0-1-2-2

RUSH GOALIE

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!


1-0-2-2

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.


0-1-1-3

GUNG-HO

Time to go for it! With just one defender and one midfielder behind you, this formation is all about the firepower.


POSITIONS

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.
