2.0 out of 5 stars To much filler April 10 1998
Format:Paperback
I was disappointed in the book, to many full page diagrams. This is a 167 page book that has 2/3 diagrams. I expected more in depth about coaching 4-4-2, not just pictures. If I had been able to review the book in a book store, I would not have bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Introduction to the 4-4-2 system particularly zone defense Aug. 11 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is exactly what it purports to be, a practical programme for coaching the 4-4-2.

It favours tactical drills, in the same way other coaching books do with technical drills.

Must be read a number of times, and I found it particularly useful to actively play out (using Subuteo or connect four discs) the formations and the adjustments to the defensive shape made by the movement of attackers.

Really helped me understand the relationship between the midfield and backline.

Were some typos - I think a paragraph missing in the strategy and tatics chapter, however the book is focused on practical zonal shape so not much value in there anyway.

Particularly good chapters on double-teaming and off-side tactics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Introducing the 4-4-2 June 23 2009
By Tony R - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I coach girls U12 rec. Last season, was our first year of full-field 11-asite soccer and we needed a formation for the first time. This book did a great job of explaining the pros/cons of the 4-4-2, along with some info on how to determine if it was right for my team, based on the players and their abailities. Further, it listed a few drills for introducing the formation along with some plays and considerations for game situations.

This book is by no means an introductary soccer book, but it laid out the information in a clear consise staright forward manner. I purchased 2 more for my assistant coaches as well.

I have purchased more than a dozen soccer coaching books, many of which are system specific (e.g. coaching the 4-3-3, coaching the 4-4-2, etc.) and in my opinion this is one of the very best.

I wouldn't normally mention another review, but I have to say that I really disagree with the reviewer Sherri A. Rudy. Other books try to cram so much needless information into their diagrams creating a huge headache for the reader. The full page diagrams in this book make it very easy to read and understand. In my opinion this book is simple and straightforward instead of cluttered.

Another book that I highly recommend is "Zone Soccer: A Game of Time and Space" (http://www.amazon.com/Zone-Soccer-Game-Time-Space/dp/1591640679)
