Tactics Primer:
Principles of Team Play
by Allen Wade
England FA - 1960
Attacking Principles and
corresponding
Defending Principles
Penetration (Runs and Passes) -------------- Delay (Immediate Pressure)
Support -------------- Cover (Defensive Support)
Width (Maintaining Shape) -------------- Compactness
Mobility -------------- Balance
Improvisation & Creativity -------------- Patience
-----The above Principles of Team Play were originally outlined in the classic book by Allen Wade in England around 1960. They have since been adopted around the world (including the USSF), to help teach and analyze tactics.
-----Tactical successes stem from useful combinations of the above "Attacking Principles". Alternatively, defensive failures often result when teams neglect the "Defensive Principles", and cover improperly, lose their patience, and do not stay "compact".
-----The following highlight clips should provide examples of many "Team Play" principles. Often times there will be several principles at work in each clip.

{short description of image}Great examples of Penetration will be found in all the Thru-passes.
{short description of image}Support is evident in the Double-Passes and Up-Back & Shoot.
{short description of image}Look for Width and Mobility in the 3rd Man Running clips.
{short description of image}Creativity is apparent with the dummy steps, feints, tricks and flicks seen in many of the clips.
