Good book for high level coaching 11 Jan. 2013
By HS Coach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am the assistant coach of a really good high school team. My head coach decided to move to the 4-2-3-1 formation this year and I decided to use this book as a resource for tactics and training sessions as I am more of a proponent of the 4-3-3. This is not a book for a novice coach or a youth league team. The concepts will help coaches who have adolescent club teams, high school teams, college and pro.

I would recommend reading this before you implement the system if you never have played the 4-2-3-1 before. Getting it right is difficult which is why very few teams are successful with it.

Clear soccer tactics book 6 Aug. 2013
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received this book and began to read it during the 2013 Gold Cup which the USA dominated. Everything I read in the book I could see implemented by the US team. Klinsman could sell DVDs of the US games as a companion to this book. The tactics described are not just theoretical, they are being used by top professional and national teams. Both the defensive and offensive concepts are presented clearly and fairly easy to understand if you have a background in soccer coaching. The author uses players from Real Madrid and Barcelona as examples how the different positons are used. If you watch those teams it is easy to see how the tactics are deployed. There are training plans presented but this is not the best book if you are looking for traning ideas. This is really about the role of each player in this system. To implement this at the youth level I believe it would certainly be a time consuming task and more appropriate for advanced club teams.

Outstanding youth training aid for Total Football 28 Aug. 2013
By Nick Barling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an outstanding read from cover to cover. There is no finer book that covers the4-3-2-1 system of play. Starting from the basic team structure it works methodically through each of the positions on the field and covers, in depth, the attributes required by each player. Then the book breaks down the starting system structure and builds the play through four phases into the final attacking sequences. Each players role is covered in detail in every phase of play and drills for coaching each aspect of the individual and team play is covered. Defending, transition and attacking is further broken down into small sided games and drills, working across units, and building up from 9v9 to 11v11. Flexible formations are described clearly and applied to game scenarios. How to play against different formations is also covered, as well as how to change the basic system to meets the changing requirements of different game situations. There is enough material here to take any coach from novice to expert in the 4-2-3-1 system, and that is quite a feat!

Detailed analysis of 4-2-3-1 system 24 April 2012
By Coolbaire37 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Excellent book covering the 4-2-3-1 system. It sets out different ways of playing the system and how to develop coaching sessions with a view to implementing the system with your team. This is a book for the more experienced coach and would be useful for a coach working at a professional or semi professional level. The 4-2-3-1 system set out requires a high level of technical ability and tactical understanding among players involved in order to fulfill its potential. A useful tool for any coach to have even if they don't intend to use this system with their players. Only criticism was I had to purchase kindle version.

Excellent coaching technique... 29 Mar. 2013
By H. D. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wayne Harrison is the guru of the 4-2-3-1 and much more. He uses his experience to compare and constrast the system with others. In addition, he analyzes team play at professional level relative to the 4-2-3-1.
