This review is from: The Way Forward: Solutions to England's Football Failings (Paperback)
I enjoyed reading The Way Forward, the author presented a good base round knowledge of the subject matter and provided a good look into the history of the problems that face the game in our country. I enjoyed several of the solutions and agree in parts with some of the solutions presented.
I've read a lot of material that runs in a similar vein as this dating back to 2009 and sometimes far earlier, material that also looked into the problems that face the game and presented solutions also. This material was taken onto consider by many local County FA's but little change came from it, my hopes are that having this book in the open public forum will help fans of the game and the coaches understand and look into further aspects that can develop not only the game but the players involved in the game, especially for those at Grass roots level. I hope more dividends will get paid to possible education of the coaches in the future and that the profession begins to be seen as that and not just the hobby that many see it as at present. There are a lot of cultural changes that need to happen before a true Way Forward can be achieved, I hope the book gets the true thought that it will challenge many of it's readers to!
