I was browsing the Palace website and came across the above and wondered when this first appeared on the site. I suppose my question is: 'How well does our first team squad practice this?
Any thoughts.

To save you having to look it up, here's the relevant part:

"Our philosophy is about six situations within the game but is primarily a possession-based approach that requires excellence in spatial awareness, outstanding movement, technical adaptability off both feet, tactical awareness and adaptability, fluidity, strength and pace of movement and a collective respect and appreciation of working with each other.

Our six situations are:
1. Understanding how and when to play out from the back
2. Controlling and creating in the middle third
3. Creating and finishing in the final third
4. Press our opponents high if and when appropriate
5. Retreat organised, compact and ready to re-press in the middle third
6. Be compact, controlled and calculating in our defending third
These areas will be key principles of our football education."

I also wondered about the art of passing the ball.

1 defend deep stay organised do as you are told
2 if we get the ball can you pass it to wilf
3 if you can't do 2 can you smack it at benteke
4 go back to doing 1


Still can't complain it usually works ok

 


One supporter of hacking argued that without it "you will do away with the courage and pluck of the game, and I will be bound to bring over a lot of Frenchmen who would beat you with a week's practice -Blackheath secretary at first meeting of the F.A

If it was a school report I would mark 1,5 and 6 as ‘adequate’ and 2,3 and 4 as ‘must do better.’

I have to say having read this carefully, several times, it is not something I recognise from our play apart perhaps numbers 5 and 6.

2. If a forward pass is on, pass sideways
3. If a sideways pass is on, pass backwards
4. Shape
5. Spending time in the opposition half is not advised
6. Shape

I would have thought that an academy is better concentrating on the players personal developement as a player and in their learning

How about,

to improve technically in terms of becoming two footed ?

making football fun in small sided games concentrating on ball control

Maybe something technical such ass Exploiting space on the pitch

I think the 6 points are a bit rigid and really players are still developing physically and mentally. More about their wellbeing. Those points seem a bit outdated to me
