I don't understand the benefit to using full sizes goals here. Shooting/finishing it not our problem as a team.
R2, good point.....They need to look more at the technical details when play in small spaces.I don't get the yelling and screaming towards each other as if that's going to help the player ,at that moment, with the ball, in this small sided scrimmage at the end. There is absolutely nothing intelligent being said to be even useful for the player...it's just lot of noise that a teammate can't do anything with. I hear the same type of noise when watching college ball....At Ajax, they would place two fullsize goals opposite each other , the other one on the line of the penalty box area. Play 4v4 with goalies.
Using one small goal changes tactics, making the danger area in front of the goal much narrower. One way to preserve tactics is to use 2 small goals to mimic an 8 yard goal or to use only the parts of the large goal near the posts.
Before commenting, I would want to know from a coach: what is the purpose of this activity? Only then would I agree or criticize.
