This is a serious question. What are our training sessions comprised of?

Do we actually practice 1-2 passing, movement, and breaking open defences?

Or is it only tactics, structure, discipline, blocking passing lanes, marking players, tracking runs and heading clear?

I am pretty sure we don’t do any of the former.

It's been mentioned countless times.

I think the answer is somewhere between 'no, we don't - players sort it out themselves' and 'we do, but very fecking little'.

When Jose managed Real Madrid, one of the reasons the players turned on him was because they did no attacking drills in training. So if he hasn't learned from that then I'd guess we don't.

Pretty sure Hazard hinted at it as well.

Regardless if we practice it or not. We setup to contain the bigger teams first and foremost. We have no idea how to approach a game when we go a goal down and we're setup to defend. That's why there's such a big difference in the first and second halves.
