Extractions: Andy Cole Dwight Yorke "The Doc" is credited with having been the man who broke the Matt Busby stranglehold on Manchester United. A stream of would-be managers had all failed in Busby's shadow, but Docherty was a tough Scott who was very much his own man. He arrived at United at Christmas 1972. United's fortunes had declined, and the Doc set about spending money to buy in new talent (Lou Macari, George Graham, Alex Forsyth and Brian Greenoff among them). He also brought George Best back from Spain. His plans failed, United were relegated to the Second Division, and Docherty bought in even more players (Stewart Pearson, Steve Coppell, Gordon Hill, Jimmy Nicholl and Arthur Albiston among them). Under his leadership and the new blood he'd bought in, United's fortunes began to turn and improve. However, when a hitherto secret love affair between him and a United physiotherapist's wife became public knowledge, he was dismissed, having refused to resign his post, to be replaced by Dave Sexton. Docherty moved on to manage Derby County.

EF Soccer Coaching - Defensive Soccer Drills soccer drills for playing defense. late developer and, at the age of 15, Ialmost thought of quitting football. ole gunnar solskjaer, Norwegian player http://www.expertfootball.com/coaching/defensive.php
Extractions: -drills -passing -basic strategy -advanced tactics Drill 1: Man in the Middle Description: Five attackers, arranged in a circle, must keep the ball away from two pressuring defenders, who are staying inside the circle. If an attacker gives up the ball or kicks it out of circle he becomes a defender. The defender who caused him to lose possession takes his role. Explanation: When a pass is made, the defenders have to adjust (Step 2) to prevent a through ball whereas the attackers have to give support (Step 3.) At first, it may seem that the drill is only for kids, but in fact many professional teams use it. The drill is a great warm up for passing and tackling skill. Task: keep the ball away from the two defenders; for increased difficulty, the attackers must try to play the ball between the defenders
EF Soccer Training - Clearing The Ball In Soccer Explains the principles of clearing the ball in soccer. at the age of 15, Ialmost thought of quitting football. ole gunnar solskjaer, Norwegian player http://www.expertfootball.com/training/clearance.php
Extractions: -fitness ... -mentality Clearing means ensuring that the ball remains "clear" of enemy intervention for a crucial period of time. Kicking the ball out of bounds will usually provide important seconds to an outnumbered defense waiting for reinforcements. Remember that a clearance, as well as any strategy is not bound to a particular technique but rather to a specific function. A defender may shield the ball so that it goes out of play without even touching it. In that case, he is ensuring a clearance without actually kicking the ball. General principles The first principle of clearing is ensuring that the enemy has been depleted from contact with the ball. This in itself does not justify why a player may clear the ball. Clearing is used primarily in situations where no other (sensible) options are available to a particular player dealing with the ball. For example, if a defender with weak physique is pressured he may prefer to clear the ball rather than try shielding it. Other situations where it may be suitable to clear the ball are when the enemy team has gained momentum in their attack. Types of Clearances
