Product Description

Product Description

Aimed primarily at intermediate and advanced coaches, this book examines the principle formations used in modern soccer and the need to fully understand them all if one is to adapt to game situations using counter-active tactics. The authors discuss such offensive topics as support, width, penetration, mobility and improvisation. Defensively, they provide insight into depth, delay, concentration, team balance, cover and restraint. Chapters include: Three Man Defense, Four Man Defense, One Forward System, Two Forward System and Three Forward System. Well organized and clearly written.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not read it yet, but ... 1 May 2014
By Steve
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
... it is significant that the Amazon book description states that this book was published on 6th Jan 2012, whereas the version that has just landed on my doorstep is published in September 1999. Given that, according to the description, 'this book examines the principle formations used in modern soccer', and so much evolution and tactical tweaking has happened in English football since 1999, I feel there is a degree of mis-selling going on here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little book on football strategy. 13 Sep 2012
By george
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's hard to find books like this, that discuss football tactics and strategy in reasonable depth. The books in the football section of most shops, and newspaper journalists, are all focused on player's personalities etc. This short book explains much of what you see watching a football game from the stands - how the team is formed up on the pitch, how defenders cover each other, etc.

You can also find some of this covered in coaching books, but here it is nicely laid out for the spectator, rather than the coach (and not interspersed with training drills, etc.) I wish there were more books of this 'cerebral' kind.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing!! 19 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was a bit disappointed with this as according to its blurb its meant to be aimed at the more advanced coach, it's not, there's nothing in it that a good coach either wouldn't know already or wouldn't be able to pick up on a coaching session regarding each formation
