How to best defend against "fishing" teams?
In your opinion - what is the best way to defend/play against teams that play using an extreme "fishing" (Cherry Picking) tactic?
Ie, teams that basically defend using only four players (more or less) and have their 5:th player constantly sneak behind the opponents defenders in the middle zone looking for the deep pass in order to be able to mount a 1-0 attack.
Leave one of your own defenders back and thus only attack using four players, or is there some smarter tactic that can be used to (get smarter/quicker defenders? :-)?
