5.0 out of 5 stars Vital information needed to pass Level 3 coaching badge, 8 April 2009
This review is from: The Art of Defending: Phase Play and 11v11 Pt. 2 (Paperback)
This is without doubt the best book out there if you want to successfully pass your UEFA "B" licence coaching badge. It contains very simple to understand set-ups that progress simply from 8v8 practices right up to 11v11 phases of play.

The explanations are also very easy to understand and allow you comprehend all the information required to coach at this level. Level 3 is all about coaching what you see, and affecting as many players as possible. This means focusing on the ball as well as away from the ball and how other players can work together in a defensive situation (i.e coaching the individual, unit, team).

This book is a vital aid for all defensive topics (e.g defending in the defensive third, preventing opponents from turning, defending in wide areas, from set pieces, communication required in various scenarios etc), and allows the reader to take in the information and apply it in game-specific situations.

I also recommend Wayne Harrison's first book "The Art of Defending Part 1" and "Game situation training for soccer".
