'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fulham - Zonal Trap Defence

It appears that Roy Hodgson has yet again enlightened the footballing world with his second-to-none knowledge.

Coaches from all around the world queue outside Motspur Park in order to see his latest tactical development in full flow.

'Zonal Trap Defence'

Adapted from NBA basketball, Hodgson has stuck the new defensive system into the teams training, and intends to allow it to weave it's magic in future games.

Hodgson, who never really made it when it came to playing football himself, has the biggest array of footballing knowledge that I can think of, and this latest idea of his certainly proves that. Players and friends have spoken of our gaffers keen eye for everything football, and his natural talent to produce the results on the pitch.

Our very own highly rated centre back, Hangeland, had this to say.

'Hodgson is very ready with advice. You can talk to him about anything to do with life skills and especially on football because he has so many clever ideas. That is why other people come and want to watch him in action.

'But above everything else, he is thorough, especially in the way he organises training. If he wants things done a certain way then we have to practise until we get it right to his satisfaction.

'Above all he is so professional and his command of language helps. When I played for him in Norway he would speak in Swedish or English, but you would always listen.'


I for one think it is amazing that Roy has the tactical nous to deploy such ideas. To adapt another sports tactics is one thing; for it to work is another. Let`s hope it does, and I cannot wait to see the results!

I hope this works! To be fair I think the system is fine now, but, if it pays off, then credit to him!
