In this DVD, Coach Hyndman explains three critical functions to all systems of play: the Attacking Phase, the Build Up Phase and the Defensive Phase. He demonstrates the intricate details of the 4-4-2 system of play by using innovative, computer-generated animation to give the viewer detailed illustrations of how the system is properly executed. Hyndman shows how to efficiently use the 4-4-2 in different areas of the field including the back four, middle four and the attacking part of the field. Hyndman creates a game-like situation to explain how to use the 4-4-2 both offensively and defensively. In the Attacking Phase, he diagrams how to progressively move the ball forward, how to attack the midfielder and how to keep your team equally balanced. Going the other way, Hyndman shows how to keep defensive pressure on the ball, communicate, maintain balance, force players down the flank, deny penetration and deny space. Hyndman also gives his expert advice on how to overcome the weaknesses that can occur when using the 4-4-2.
