    Good video. My club team was one of those teams that didn't have majority possession in almost every game we played, since it was at a high level. But we knew how to time our runs just right and we had a lot of talent in the midfield, which made all the difference. Keeping possession without trying to produce chances is entirely useless. Tactically it makes a huge impact because if you keep the ball without going anywhere, a good opponent team will:

    a) gain confidence because they can see you have no real sense of intent or urgency on the ball
    b) be able to maintain their defensive shape because you aren't breaking them down by creating space in the right areas

    I think some of the problem arises from a systemic source. I don't have any statistics or anything like that, this is just from what I've seen: a lot of youth development programs tell the young players to play simple, prioritize keeping the ball, not be overly risky, etc. Which is fine, but then you get more players who are hesitant to attack space, and instead play the ball back and waste a good opportunity.

    I personally think all of this is interconnected.

    EDIT: I just now saw that you have a recent video called "Possession Without The Intent To Score Is Pointless…" so I guess you pretty much covered this topic and this comment is redundant.

    Coffee Shop sessions are informative.  Question:  What formation do you all play and why?  Do you base it on your players, or do you recruit players to fit your formation?  You guys are always doing something fun…Keep up the GREAT work!!
