    26-1-2014, This video captures the first half highlights from the game played with Real Madrid, before the game the players were asked to focus on a) Keeping their shape (positional awareness) b) moving for each other when in possession c) dominating the game by dominating possession d) keep it simple and e) enjoy themselves. 5 Key objectives which underpin the essence of our training and club philosophy that allows our young players to express themselves on the pitch and not be too concerned with the actual result (ie we didnt want to see the GK punting the ball forward as far as he can, or players simply kicking the ball forward without thought or purpose). We teach our young boys and girls how to play football, not how to win. Winning will be an outcome of our approach to development, losing will also be an outcome of our approach; we always embrace both outcomes with positive support for our players. Looking back at the highlights from the first half, whilst there is certainly room for improvement in many aspects of our game, the U9s kept their shape well, were moving intelligently off the ball, there was plenty of communication between the players and possession was maintained. Video technology has allowed us to generate our Half Time stats which showed that we managed to complete 137 successful passes in the first half (Opponents 22) with 21 shots on target (opponents 1). With only 2 goals converted from 21 shots (though we hit the woodwork 4 times) is something we need to improve as a team. Our opponents however by packing the defense, forced us often to take long range shots which was something we discussed together as a team at half time.. The half time team talk was centred around patience, maintaining possession and intelligently deciding when to attack and create an overload, after drawing the opponents out from the edge of the box. Second half highlights will follow, during which we managed to create many more opportunities and converted 6. Final Score ESPZEN Soccer School 8, Real Madrid 1.
