2. When in doubt, pass backwards - I know what your thinking. It sounds like I'm contradicting my first point, but another thing we tend to do is give the ball away too cheaply, usually because a player tries and fails to make a forward pass, executing it either too hard, too early or too late (usually the first one).

Do these two things and, like Barcelona, our defensive frailties, though very much present, won't be exposed half as much.
