In recent years, player development has been a hot topic in the soccer world. With more pressure on coaches to win than ever before, the modern game seems to be less about actual players and more about tactical systems. In many places, the majority of training sessions are structured so that each player receives the same training as his or her teammates, even though they are asked to perform different functions. As a result, players do not receive specific feedback and lack the ability to produce functional skills in the heat of a game. Aimed at football coaches of all levels, and players of all ages and abilities, The Modern Soccer Coach: Position-Specific Training seeks to identify, develop, and enhance the skills and functions of the modern soccer player whatever their position and role on the pitch. This book offers unique insight into how to develop an elite program that can both improve players and win games. Filled with practical no-nonsense explanations, focused player drills, and more than 40 illustrated soccer templates, this book will help you - the modern coach - to create a coaching environment that will take your players to the next level. Understand how the concept of player development needs to change as players progress in the game. Examine how learning styles have changed and how coaches must adapt accordingly. Enhance your players' performance levels with innovative exercises and ways to share feedback and critical information. Includes chapters and exercises for developing Center Backs, Full Backs, Holding Midfielders, Attacking Midfielders, Wide Attackers, and Center Forwards. Learn how certain coaches can move their players from 'interested' to 'committed'. Develop ways to maximize the talent levels of your players.

A soccer player is more than the sum of his parts: endurance, speed, shooting technique, passing technique, and many more. All of these factors need to be turned into one system to create good players. Traditional training theory doesn’t achieve that because each skill is trained individually. This is why the concept of Tactical Periodization has become the preferred training theory for many of the current most successful soccer coaches: Pep Guardiola, José Mourinho, Diego Simeone, André Villas-Boas, and many others train according to these principles. By creating match-like situations in practice, players learn to link their technical, tactical, and athletic abilities to match intelligence. They will learn to transfer their skills to soccer matches and they can improve endurance, technique, and tactics all at the same time while enjoying the practice sessions more. For this book, the author has evaluated and analyzed hundreds of training sessions and has tailored exercises to specific demands. All exercises are performed with a ball so that players learn to apply each skill to the game. Every coach will find numerous exercises in this book to help them create better and more efficient practice sessions so they can improve their players’ and the team’s performance. With Tactical Periodization, your team will become better and be successful on the next match day!

The 3-3-1-3 is not an entirely new concept, though it has become more popular in recent years due to its dynamic attacking nature. In particular, former Chile National Team coach Marcelo Bielsa and former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola have implemented this system with great success. This book explores, in detail, the strengths and weaknesses of the system, the roles and responsibilities of each player in both attack and defense and the permutations of the team shape against different formations and in varying situations. Depending on the circumstances at any one moment of the match in terms of the score, the opponent’s tactics, time remaining etc., the formation could become a 1-3-4-3, a 1-2-3-2-3, or even a 1-5-4-1 in an ultimate defensive setup. This adaptability, the FLEX, is made possible by teaching players to recognize the rotations required "on the fly" by presenting them with very specific game situations in training. In this book, Harrison takes you through his training sessions geared toward developing in players the tactical and spatial awareness necessary to run the FLEX 1-3-3-1-3 successfully.

The practices are designed to inspire and motivate the players in real game situations that give them freedom of choice and movement both in and out of possession. The basic techniques of passing, dribbling, shooting, tackling and heading will all be used but with use to solve a match problem rather than constant repetition. The sessions have goals and objectives for both the attacking and defending players in order to aid the tempo, competition and enjoyment of the practice.
