Top Customer Reviews
This book is a fantastic resource for soccer coaches at any level, or any person tasked with administering a youth soccer program. Michels explains the vital importance of small-sided (4v4) games in teaching young players how to play soccer, establishes objectives for the technical development of young players by age group, discussed systems of play.
This is my "top-rated', "must read" book for any serious soccer coach.

Michels explains the vital importance of small-sided (4v4) games in teaching young players how to play soccer, establishes objectives for the technical development of young players by age group, discussed systems of play, and gives real-life examples of how to manage the dynamics of professional and international teams.
This may well be the most important soccer book ever written.
Any book that gives over 30 years of successful experience should be on the top of every reading list.
Otherwise, valuable as Michels is one of the greatest footbal coaches ever!
Half-way through the book I realized that I was reading the thoughts of a genius. Section after section I found the answers to some of my questions I had regarding the tactics, training, and methods of professional teams (some applicable up to the U12 level.) I have no doubts that the reader's coaching methods will be positively affected due to the knowledge that Mr. Michels shares in this book.
