Theres no tactics, just use rush goal keeper and charge as hard and fast at the opponents goal.

tried that old chestnut last week, ended up leaving our end exposed let in 4 soppy goals and lost 4-3.

im thinking 2-1-2 this week, as it is the FA standard 6-a-side formation...

Do you have a convicted male rapist in your team, get one and let him loose in the center of the park.

You'll want a 3-2-1 formation as it makes the foundations of your defence a lot stronger. You need to learn how to defend before you can attack.

no we dont have one yet, fancy a try-out?

we got 2 defenders who play 11-a-side every week. one is a class defender, one is just built. just need people to mark up and track back properly, every goal we let in last week was down to players not marking up goal side and tracking back.

get ball, kick ball, score.

only messin...i am a 5 aside man myself, pass an move is the best tactic, u wont get anywere with someone on ya team who is a show boater, a wanna be ronalda AKA a ball greedy bastard u will be fucked cos the pitch is'nt big enough for it at all, the game should be played 2 or 3 touches per player,

we dont really play positions as such as again the pitch isnt big enough, if there is space, get into it, if there is a decent run , run it, i have no time for lazy bastards.

is there rolling subs? like if u can come off and on again as many times as u want. i play 5-aside so a little bit different, gotta have good communication, if ur all mates it shudnt b a problem, keep talkin to each other tell them who needs to drop back or stay forward or pick up a man. good passin is a must aswel u need a few players who can pick out a good pass save all the running n gettin knackered. liking the kit aswel lol. good luck

yeah rolling subs. the pitch is pretty big as well.
a lot of space for sexy passing/runs
I've told em all once no more than 2-3 touches b4 you pass, need to embed it in their heads. ill tell em again b4 k/o tomorra.

im thinking of telling em to exploit the wings as the pitch is very wide. only downside to this is you cant go into the keepers area, so wud be easier to defend balls coming in...

our 5-aside pitch is smaller n we got 1 players whos just amazing hardly passes n gets pissed off wen u dont pass to him but he wins us games. got a couple old duffers who started the team so we cant reli kick them out, we giv them a run out for a few mins. gt a good mixture of youth and experience, our team is full of lary cunts aswel so its always a laugh if we start losing to kick the other team around.

Id say stick 3 at the back, one centre back and two on the wings who push up when your attacking, they have to be fit.

Then let everyone else run about into space etc.

YOu could have the best tactics in the world, if your team isnt up to it then your fucked. Fitness is crucial. This is where our team failed last year. We smoke too much weed and had no subs, so we were fucked. My mate was sick during the game! ahaha.

We tried working out tactics etc at the start then afterwards realised its all a bit of fun just go out there and enjoy it.

We also worked out that if we were "trying too hard" we would do badly. If we were casual without worrying about losing we were a lot better. Just make sure you find the space and get in it, try and stretch the game out. Its hard enough on a small ptch without it being congested.

first things first. change your kit, you give the opposition a psychological advantage by letting them know they are gonna win :teeth:

the most important thing is to have fun i think, taking it too seriously gets you no where. we never usually play with strict positions (not that i play anymore, unless a mate needs me to) just kinda run around and passing it quickly. i prefer defending so i stayed back more, other prefer attacking so stay forward more. it will just happen, but as long as everyone moves up and down the pitch with play you should be alright mate

haha i play for the local jjb team, one of them blagged a load of rochdale away strips so we have a bright purple kit haha.

i agree with herojuana if you try to hard it often goes badly, if you can be relaxed but serious about it you'll do well and have a good laugh too

chat shit mate. best colours you can get....

id rather have that than a bacon kit.....

here is my team talk for b4 the game.

just been writing it up while reading all your posts...

if there is space, get into it, if there is a decent run , run it
try and stretch the game out, make the opposition work to win back the ball.
2-3 touches max before you pass, selfish play only ends up wit you running into trouble
Push up and support the man with the ball in attack, like ive said, IF THERE IS SPACE, GET INTO IT

COVER the goal in defence...
always mark up your man when defending on his GOAL SIDE.
Track back down the pitch, dont just stand up the other end of the pitch hoping somebody else will do it for you.

LISTEN to instructions and talk to other players on the pitch. if somebody is too quick/strong for you swap marking with somebody.
if you get tired, SUB yourself, catch your breath. come back on.

No negative comments to members of our squad. Remember its suppose to be fun for all involved...
dont rise to the opposition trying to bait you into anything. will only end up in us gettin a man sent off.

mostly... have fun, dont take it to seriously, but play to win!

UP THE WALKLEY OWLS!

That sound pretty damn good... I like the bit at the end, have fun...but play to win. That basically it aint it.
lol. WTF?

i think this goes under the 'taking it too seriously' thing we were talking about
thats the thing. its like a double bluff. all my lot will find it funny when i turn up with a team talk....

make sure u let us know how u got on. film it-youtube-link it
ill let u know the score n that, vids if i can be assed.
