The Leopold Method is a fantastic new find for me. Great articles, such as this one by Riccardo Marchioli on Australia’s pressing in the Asian Cup.
The Socceroos’ successful and highly aggressive pressing game has very little to do with buzz words like “intensity” and “commitment” and is reliant instead on a more integrated view of the national team’s tactical approach under Postecoglou. In short, the attacking approach determines the way of defending and also alters the game plan of the opposition. This then allows a team to dominate territorially and increase the percentage of chances created.
