Episode 36 - The Third Man Run

Ahead of the start of Euro 2020, we are back with a tactical breakdown this week.   In Episode 36, we take a look into a tactical approach called “The Third Man Run”. A very simple approach as a concept, but very effective when executed properly. We discuss the nuances of this approach, why it is useful, and how it can maximise space on the pitch.   We also enlist the help of Performance Analyst & Academy Coach at Molde FK - and friend of the pod - Eric Laurie, to get his insight on this tactical approach!   Bio links:   Leeds United training:;   Eric Laurie guest episode:;    Eric Laurie Twitter thread:     Learn more about your ad choices.
