How to make your pub team play like Barcelona
Let professional coach Paul Williams whip your sorry lot into shape…

1 Defenders should go wide and push up the pitch.

2 Midfielders need to rotate positions constantly to give the player on the ball several passing options. The mantra: Receive. Pass. Offer.

3 Move the ball quickly to create goal-scoring chances. Unlock defences with one-touch passing and early shots.

4 When opponents have the ball, pressure them in packs. Force errors up the pitch and regain possession near their goal.

5 During opposition possession, play a high defensive line to compress the available space.
