Soccer: Modern Tactics: Italy's Top Coaches Analyze Game Formations Through 180 Situations
Soccer: Modern Tactics: Italy's Top Coaches Analyze Game Formations Through 180 Situations
by Alessandro Zauli
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.76

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb - but agree translation can be a bit of a let down., 5 Jan. 2011
An excellent reference book that deal with many of the common football philosophies and how top level coaches approach the fundamentals of these tactics.

The translation from Italian to English is ropey at best but you can still fully understand what is being suggested and the diagrams help immensely. I would not be put off by the translation as you just can't get this level of detail in a book by a british author.

Definatley a book to have on the shelf for all open minded coaches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 5 Jan. 2011
These coaching books written by Italian coaches are the most indepth and by far the best. This particular book has an excellent translation (some of the other books are poorly written in English) and offers excellent advice on dealing with your opponent and for in-game tactical advice on how to shape and try to change the look of a game depending on what is happening.

The only problem is you'll have to read and digest away from the pitch cos you'll look a bit silly on the touchline looking up in a book what to do when your team is winning 1-0, ten minutes to go, you have just had a man sent off and its pouring with rain....! Trust me the book will offer advice on how to attempt to handle such a situation.

Recommended.
