Using Midfielders in the Back 1/3

Because our attack only really takes two players, we can use any of our 3 centermids to go back deep into our own territory. I like to use Javi Martinez simply because his ball skills aren't the greatest, but he is a decent defender.

Now with that said, the reason why we use a midfielder back in our territory is because our attack is so fast, that our midfielders couldn't get up field anyhow.
Plus this gives us a 5 backer formation to some extent.

Our center backs have good marking, and our fullbacks have the speed. This means they're going to do their jobs to stay in front of the player possessing the ball. This gives us the advantage of taking away the next logical place the ball could go.

We don't play on the ball because we're playing little risk, big reward style of play here. By shutting down the next obvious pass, the other team is forced to take a bad shot on goal, or to take the ball back out of our territory.

With our extra defender, in air quotes, here we're trying to drive the ball to the sidelines. We want to get the ball out of the middle of the field as much as possible, and drive his attack wide. From that point it becomes a one dimensional attack, which is of course the cross and header.

Because our center backs are tall and strong, we feel comfortable defending this style of play.

So, to summarize here, while you're defending and play is slowed way down, you're looking to cut off the next pass and to keep the ball on the outside.

If your opponent is still building it up just a bit, your goal is to play the inside position and drive the ball outside as much as possible.

In both of these scenarios we aren't just taking the defensive side of the ball off here- we aren't just waiting to get the ball back. We have to pay attention and we have to be smart here. In fact, we have to pay more attention and put forth more effort and focus on defense than we do while attacking.

That's the whole point, right? We can't lose if our opponent can't score, and our offense is so simple yet highly effective, so we don't have to think too much on that end of the field.

Remember, keep the ball on the outside, and play off the ball with an extra midfielder to control where and how your opponent is going to pass the ball.

The point is to keep the ball out on the wings.
