I have tailored these tactics after Josep Guardiola's philosophy at Barcelona and their players back then. For example, the system used in the highly successful 2009-2010 season but also focused on the general characteristics of Pep Guardiola's ideas.
The Pep's Barcelona Tiki-Taka tactics are created for everyone who prefers high amount of possession (above 60%) and feels more comfortable when the ball is in the opposite half.
By leaving the penalty box free from players and instead have players arriving there, it’s essential that the wide forwards (inside forwards) will get into the opposition area. These movements have the sole purpose to cause panic and chaos in the defensive organization of the opposite team. Achieving to drag players out of position or not may be the difference between a shot on goal (a goal scored) or a blocked shot (failed attack).
With the ball I like my players to patiently build up the play with shorter passes at players feet, working the ball around until space opens up. With short passing ticked coupled with retain possession the players will look to move the ball patiently between each other reducing the tempo of the match and the overall passing length. It’s all focused on not taking any necessary risk at your own half.
