4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little book on football strategy.
It's hard to find books like this, that discuss football tactics and strategy in reasonable depth.

... 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing!!, 19 July 2014

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
