The Rondo Debate

Here is a video I made to contribute to the Great Rondo Debate of 2016.

When it comes to Rondos, I have to side with Cryuff.  I have had a lot of recent success with my players by relating various game situations, their problems, and solutions, the fixed and directional rondos we do.  But like anything else in soccer, including “Free Play”, “Choreography”, “Coerver”, “Shadow Play”, etc… Rondo is a coaching tool, and like any coaching tool it’s effectiveness depends on how it is used.  The world’s best screwdriver will not drive a nail as well as a mediocre hammer.  But if all you have is a hammer then everything becomes a nail.
