5.0 out of 5 stars Defensive Football Bible
The authors come from the golden age of Danish football and this fact is reflected in the book. An easy-to-read volume that revels in simplicity without shying away from a more complex vocabulary.

Some of the drills seem over eloborate though, too complicated rather than focusing on basics that relate to the game. Some stuff seems difficult to relate to a game situation and after all if it...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, not bad, 26 May 2007
This review is from: Defensive Soccer Tactics (Paperback)
No doubting the knowledge and experience of the authors this is a good book with some good ideas about getting your team defending well as individuals and as a unit.

Some of the drills seem over eloborate though, too complicated rather than focusing on basics that relate to the game. Some stuff seems difficult to relate to a game situation and after all if it does not relate to a game situation then ultimately it will leave players confused.

However it did give me some good ideas for warm ups and progressions that could lead into some functional practices or phases of play.

Important to understand which players could benefit from this book, not youngsters, only 14 and upwards will benefit from the practices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Defensive Football Bible, 16 May 2010
This review is from: Defensive Soccer Tactics (Paperback)
The authors come from the golden age of Danish football and this fact is reflected in the book. An easy-to-read volume that revels in simplicity without shying away from a more complex vocabulary.

Each section begins with the concepts behind a specific aspect of the defensive game, outlining the main points and possible pitfalls if these are not followed. It goes on to suggest possible drills to improve your players skills in the area it is covering, from the refined but more common place exercises to more creative and complex set plays.

This book has been an invaluable tool for season after season within our team and has been the secret to our success.
