This book is madre for beginners and the author shares his ideas. Though he guides us with his ideas so we can figure out and continue with our own visions of tactical schemes. However, I would had love that he explains in detail the corrections, reasons and predictable mistakes that players usually do during practices. For example, with the training exercises in the book. Also, I liked the interviews with the few Italian trainers and his vision on the youth games for 11,12,13 and 14 years old.

I give a mark of 3 1/2 stars.

HASH(0x9d1aff78) out of 5 stars Professional help from Italian-speaking writers Nov. 14 2005
By South Manitou - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are a coach, this book is for you. Its concepts are complex and the book assumes an already detailed knowledge of the game. There are several attacking patterns that I guarantee will help your team, as well as concepts and drills to improve individual and group attacking play. For someone who played defense in college and specializes in defense at the collegiate coaching level, the book is helpful if one-sided. The Italians focus on a zonal defense, and in general flat-back defense is detailed. There is some very good stuff in here to help build a defense. Additionally, almost any formation you can imagine is given a quick glance by a professional coach who uses it and notes its advantages and disadvantages. The one criticism I have is the clumsy writing--these guys are definitely not American.

HASH(0x9cada384) out of 5 stars Very italian. March 28 2014
By Lukas Tilmann - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well, highly successful Italian coaches explaining tactics. Exactly what I expected. Defending, defending defending. After reading this book, you will be the master at a nice taccenaccio...
Anyways, a little one-dimensional, very detailed, great coaches, awkward english and relatively complicated explanations.
The biggest thing to improve would be better pictures/sketches of the tactics or drills. They are actually fine, but the resolution in the e-book version is poor, so you can hardly read the tiny numbers of the players.

HASH(0x9e2e6be8) out of 5 stars Soccer Modern Tactics Oct. 7 2010
By Leland - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a soccer junkie, so i get into books on strategy. However, with this book, it seemed like the book had been translated from Italian. The English was awkward and I had to go back and re-read sections because they just weren't clear or the phrasing was awkward. Also, I kept having to refer back to the symbol guide to understand the formation diagrams (does that squiggly line mean he passed the ball, or he ran the ball or he ran without the ball?)

So, in summary... interesting content, but the text wasn't user friendly. The author needs a good, English journalist to clean it up.

HASH(0x9cae5c18) out of 5 stars A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF TACTICS Aug. 7 2005
By Kivanc Erman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really an excellent book...A little bit "pro"...Actually I bought it to improve my game tactics on WE8/PS2 but it also helped my soccer fundamental knowledge to improve as well... I recommend this book to everyone who wants to improve his football fundamentals, especially on game strategies. As written by Italians,strength is on the defence side, but satisfactory anyway.

HASH(0x9cad7ef4) out of 5 stars Great basics tactics and training exercises. June 2 2012

Great basics for marking and training exercises. The book explores the subjects of zonal marking and game tactics. There are also interviews with great Italian managers and their insights on the book subjects. Excellent reading for tactics fans.
