4.0 out of 5 stars A simple and concise manual for coaches starting out, 20 April 2001
This review is from: Soccer Systems and Strategies (Paperback)
The book is well layed out and develops it's subjects well. First explaining the various systems of play - giving examples of internationally renowned teams that have addopted each system - then adding further coaching tips for each system, for set pieces and for motivational work.
It can be quite simplistic at times, but is ideal for the coach just setting out; who needs to understand the basics, before moving onto more complex ideas and techniques. This is where I felt the book 'hit-the-woodwork' (sorry for the punn) as the authors could have included techniques on one-to-one coaching with the aim of improving a players abilities such as heading, control, passing etc.
The only real minus side for me, was the standard of English, it does let the authors down at times as it can be little difficult to correctly grasp the meaning of a sentence. Otherwise a quality read. Long live the beautiful game!
