Ian Burchnall: Coaching build-up play through the thirds


Recommended Posts

I stumbled across a video on YouTube by CV Academy, it shows a training session which our manager, Ian Burchnall held with them. It shows some of his insight towards possession play and, building the thirds of the pitch - gaining space, so that play opens up.

This is something which he focuses on with Notts and, I wished I found it at the time when Don Masson made his comments about the club in 'modern times' building up from the back. It's a short video, but very detailed and, something I would encourage people to see. The games are always adapting, but always something behind what seems like madness.

PS. I haven't seen this shared anywhere before, I wonder if it ends up doing the rounds after this. 😁

Did anyone notice Adam Chicksen moving out the left side, with Connell Rawlinson being central and isolated? I wondered why we did this against Rochdale, but seeing this it seems to give us more men in midfield at times.

i dont think he should play as a cb either, i much prefer cameron filling out wide when cover there is needed. he knows to get back and to defend, chicksen looked like he did not want to leave where he stood.
