Nice little book on football strategy.
on 13 September 2012
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.
