I have always been of fan of the way that Arsenal play. They have a very young team currently and are not showing the dominance that they once did, but they still try to play beautiful football. That being said, I have been trying to encourage my young players to not settle for the service from wide positions. It is low percentage when compared to a ball served on the ground from a closer position across the face of the goal. Whether you choose to do it like Arsenal with a penetrating pass from central areas, 1v1 flank play, or a combination of both to get in behind for the service; encourage your players to not settle for a low percentage ball unless they have no other option.
