Edition1 had 7300+ readers. Edition 2 has been re-designed with more detailed information for soccer coaches, analysts and students. It focuses on the individual analysis of a player and the contribution that analysis can play within a purposeful coaching programme. Performance analysis has made the authors better coaches and we expect it will do the same for you. Produced by coaches for coaches it has been designed to allow the reader to interact with 35 videos, 22 illustrations and diagrams, 12 tables and 12 practical sessions thus keeping text to a minimum. Though this book covers essential detail for the experienced coach, we feel it will also inspire the beginner coach, analyst and student of the game. Positions analysed include a player's an attacking abilities. Goalkeeper's distribution and an in-depth case study of a strikers goal scoring. Implications for coaching and purposeful work on the training ground are shown.
Analysing The Soccer Player
I found the book very informative for me as coach, I will get my analyst to also buy the book and then we can start applying all the valuable lessons in it. The training ground practices are well presented, structured and I would say applicable from very young youth to pro’s.
l reckon this book is very inspiring. As a coach l found the information is so understandable, which they also supported by good visions and videos. l strongly recommend this book to all my coaching circle and also to you
