This is the football associations offical book and it is easy to see why. The skills and tactics in this book are clearly explained and have been devised over a number of years. There are hundreds of diagrams illustrating how practices should be organised, along with key factors to look for in all skills. The book is very old as the photos clearly show, and the author has a reputation for long ball football. However the book is more concerned with direct football and the basic skills all players need.
Excellent value for money , I have one other book , that I thought was worth the money , but page for page, this book is superb.
