5.0 out of 5 stars Any coach, or any one mildly interested in English football should read this book., 23 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Way Forward: Solutions to England's Football Failings (Paperback)
Matt Whitehouse has observed, researched and witnessed first hand the problems facing English football.
He is one of the few to offer a viable solution that touches everyone from the grassroots under six player
taking their first steps in the game to the men in charge at the FA.

The book begins by looking at what is going wrong with English football, why there is a lack of talented
players coming through the ranks. But instead of offering the same knee jerk solutions and the
same old platitudes about what should be done, Whitehouse offers clarity and insight.

Changes have to be made at the top of the FA structure, with the archaic FA Council, that will
trickle down the coaching system. Changes have to be made at the bottom of the pyramid that
will see a greater base of talented English players produced.

What separates this book from the morass is that the solutions Whitehouse proposes
could be implemented very quickly, make complete sense and would be welcomed
by the vast majority of people working within the game, and volunteering at grass roots.

This is a thought provoking, system challenging, ground breaking read.

If you are interested in the game of football in England, buy it.

If you are not, buy it.
