Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Rinus Michel's book, together with Bert Van Lingen's book "Coaching Soccer" provide the framework of the "Dutch Vision" of how to coach soccer (football or voetball) - and the Dutch have had more than their fair share of success producing outstanding players since the 1970's.

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.

HASH(0xa3cd84e0) out of 5 stars Michels Worthy of Title - "FIFA's Coach of The Century" Feb. 2 2004
By Michael J. Alward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Rinus Michel's book, together with Bert Van Lingen's book "Coaching Soccer" provide the framework of the "Dutch Vision" of how to coach soccer. This book is a fantastic resource for any soccer coach at any level, any convenor at the youth soccer level, or any person tasked with administering a 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, 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.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Everyone that is trying to get into coaching soccer/football should first start by reading this book.

Any book that gives over 30 years of successful experience should be on the top of every reading list.
HASH(0xa3cd8810) out of 5 stars valuable as Michels is one of the greatest footbal coaches ever Dec 2 2015
By Angelos Themelis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The translation from Dutch to English creates difficulties in understanding terminology.
Very repetitive.
Otherwise, valuable as Michels is one of the greatest footbal coaches ever!

HASH(0xa3cd8918) out of 5 stars Indepth look at "Total Soccer" June 15 2008
By Ronaldo A. Carballo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What can be said about Rinus Michels that hasn't already been said about the creator of 'Total Soccer'. Having said that I can only give this book four stars due to Mr. Michels' ramblings sometimes. Yes, it is a somewhat difficult book to read. My advice is to get you a notepad and pen to write down the many golden gems found in this book.

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.
