Not a coaching manual! 17 July 2014
By J. Barr - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Paul Ridler's review is spot on. This book is way too simplified and is more appropriate for ....well I'm not sure really. You could basically draw a picture of a 3-4-1-2 or 4-2-3-1 and then just start making up passing diagrams from that and you'd have the bulk of what is provided in this book. If you are looking for training drills appropriate to these formations you are looking in the wrong place. There are no training drills in this book. It is simply ~180 pages of filler to show how you might shape up and pass in certain match situations. How it ever got published is beyond me. It is in no way a coaching manual. Wayne Harrison's book "Coaching the 4-2-3-1" is a far better book. If only I could find a book on the 3-4-1-2 in the same detail.

A manual about the game that everybody interested in learning different formations should have in the library. Highly recommended.

5 stars because it makes you THINK a lot 3 Mar. 2011

I congratulate M Lucchesi on this book , as his analysis on the 3 4 1 2 is splendid . The diagrams , as the other reader mentioned are very accurate , and very informative and effective .

You have to probably think critically a bit faster when trying to understand how attacking , defending , building up play etc is done in Football ( soccer } . Its a demanding sport in order to understand it . You have to analyze it for months , years to really get it 100 % , and to try to coach it , as is my goal

For many - and myself included - the book is very direct and clear in regards to that - a clear presentation of these sports formations .

Watching your favourite team on TV , or live at the stadium helps greatly , when trying to connect these game tactics , and how they can be tested on the field .

And apart from this ( real important ) are organizational strategies that the Dutch in europe , some countries in South america and other nations in this worldwide universe of football on earth have applied , refined and perfected . In order to give their teams a Really high level of punch , goals and quality

These analysis like Lucchesi's s give us those insights we football lovers love so much . Tryalso the book ' Attacking soccer ' by him . Its one of the best reads ive ever had . The Quality of detail is enormous . Thanks M Lucchesi
