Customer Reviews

There is some very good stuff in here to help build a defense.
South Manitou
Great introduction to the zonal play ... explained with diagrams ... every coach should exploe it and learn great deal about zonal-marking and zonal-playing.
Tomasz Wilczak
I think the problem may be poor translation from Italian to English.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Good info BUT... VERY DISAPPOINTED it was not better rendered for English speaking audience (What? The English don't play futball??). Comic and sometimes confusing trans-literations abound in this book making it appear that I am listening to an Italian possessing only a moderate command of English language -- There is some really good stuff here but you have to work at it to figure out what the author is getting at....Clearly, this book was poorly "proofed" (at best) and most diagrams simply mislabeled. This sloppy editing is sure sign educational books are not a high priority for the author. Feels more like a series of lengthy magazine interviews w/ Zauli and some diagrams tossed in but just expanded into a book. Again, good info but don't buy it expecting everything to be laid out in front of you.

Overall, good information but could have...SHOULD have been much better.

Format: Paperback
This is a very good look at different formations and strategies by Italian coaches including World cup winning manager Marcello Lippi , Arrigo sacchi and Carlo Ancelotti .Principles of attack and defensive systems are easily explained and well illustrated.
Best off all , in the interviews questions are put to the various coaches on their choices. Very interesting well worth getting.
