We typically use a carousel of small sided games in training. We pat ourselves on the back looking at all the touches and involvements that chilren are involved in.
However, I question the technical skill acquisition that is taking place - and I see some players who are not particularly advancing their skills other than getting older and more experienced.
Furthermore, I think we may be missing a trick tactically also, where players and teams seldom get the chance to talk tactics, as a team, or as a wider group.
Anyone done a good job of combining all three?

I try to encourage my players to watch and comment on their peers' performance - I call it "you are the Analyst" (which unfortunately means very little to my young cricketers who would never have seen Simon Hughes on Channel 4's Test match coversge...but that's for another post, altogether).
It seems to work for cricket, where the game itself encourages players to watch others playing. In fact, the structure of the game demands that players become active spectators.
Not sure how well this would apply to other sports, however.
