PDF Preview of "Rondos and Positional Games for Coaching of Tactical" German Top Level Tactics - Part 8Rondos and Positional Games for Coaching of Tactical Authors: Levent Sürme, Martin WengPages: 87Graphics: 61Exercises: 50 50 Rondos and Positional Games It is well known, that each training session consists of several parts. Rondos are now a firmly planned element in almost every session. There are probably very few coaches in the world who don’t include them in practices. Usually built in a rectangle, for example exercises in 4:4 + 2 or similar take place. In particular, Pep Guardiola, during in his time at FC Barcelona and later at FC Bayern Munich, made positional games more and more popular in many variations. But each Rondo has its own details and outcomes. This eBook includes: 10 Rondos for pressing 10 Rondos for offensive transitions 10 Rondos for playing deep 10 Rondos for attacking the final third 10 Rondos for speed up decision making Of particular value is the information regarding coaching, organization and possible variations. Peter Schreiner - IFJ96 The ebook by Levent Sürme and Martin Weng is something quite special. Very good, tactical preliminary remarks clarify the authors’objective: Five main topics (pressing, going on the offensive, in-depth playing, playing in the final third and swiftness of action) are introduced using vivid examples from professional soccer and impeccably rehearsed on the basis of 10 game forms. Of particular value is the information regarding coaching, organization and possible variations. This allows every coach to implement the rondos and game forms presented in targeted fashion during training, and thus prepare his players in motivated and diversified fashion for the demands of the 11 against 11 game.

Perfect Ball Control in Soccer (Book)
Perfect Ball Control in Soccer (Book)
In modern soccer, players of all abilities experience enormous time pressure and pressure from opponents. They rarely get the chance to receive the ball calmly and then dribble, pass or shoot at the goal. Only by being able to bring the ball quickly and safely under control – often while on the run – can one play attractive and successful soccer. However, perfect ball control does not just start when the ball is at the player's feet, but must always be seen in the context of a game situation and an opponent. Perfect ball control can be broken down into four stages: • Preparation for the initial contact with the ball (perception, running into free space, adopting a suitable body position) • The first touch of the ball • Actions in possession of the ball (dribbling, feinting) • Final action (pass, cross, shot at the goal) This practical book contains more than 160 drills and ball games and over 200 photos and 120 illustrations covering ball control, dribbling, feinting, passing, crossing and shooting at the goal. Each chapter starts with clear theoretical principles that give the coach valuable information for effective and learning-intensive team and individual training.

Training must “model” the game through specific practices (specificity) that include all the tactical game principles designed by the coach. You will learn the principle of performance stabilisation, so you can maintain your team’s high performance levels throughout a full season. “For me, training means training in specificity, creating practices that allow me to enhance my principles of play.” Jose Mourinho   Accelerate your players' tactical understanding of their positional roles & responsibilities - Players will react quicker, be sharper, and make better decisions in all tactical situations This is your chance to learn the Tactical Periodization method which has been applied by top coaches, with José Mourinho being the most influential and successful.

The Art of Counterpressing (Booklet)
Series: German Top Level Tactics - Part 4 Why Counterpressing? Tactical Principles Analysis of Situations in the Game 25 Effective Exercises and How to Coach Them Author: Steven Turek Edited by: Peter Schreiner Translated by: Tjorben Becker Editor: Institute of Youth soccer, Essen - Germany (www.soccer-coaches.com) Pages: 69 - Graphics: 52 Content: After the first three parts of the series “German Top Level Tactics” focused on attacking strategies, the author Steven Turek now devotes the fourth part on the interesting topic of counterpressing. Already in the first parts, the author made remarks and defined fundamental principles to this topic - now he presents an entire book focusing on counterpressing! Firstly, the question will be answered what counterpressing actually is and why it is meaningful to implement it into your philosophy. In the following, Turek focuses on descriptions to all measures which could be applied in each game phase. Among others, the following questions will be answered: Which coherence exists between measures and ball possession (e.g. definite attacking strategies) and counterpressing? Which measures need already be applied in own ball possession? What are the most important fundamental principles in the moment of a lost ball? The theoretical part will be completed with possibilities to act after successful counterpressing - but also what to do, if counterpressing fails. Especially the detailed practical part of this book is to be seen as a highlight. Steven Turek presents 25 exercises with detailed descriptions and extensive variations which enable the effective and playful training of counterpressing with every number of players and players of all ages.

Pressing-Resistance (Booklet)
Author: Steven Turek Pages: 60 - Graphics: 53 Pressing-Resistance​ Tactical Principles – Match Solutions - Drills​ Steven Turek: „Pressing-Resistance is the ability to identify the opposing pressing, resist it and purposefully outplay it.“ Every coach knows the situation: The own team builds up the play and is early pressured on. Passes are desperately played from one player to the other, until one clears the ball long. What’s needed in these situations is call pressing-resistance. The ability to identify the opposing pressing, break it and purposefully outplay it! In order that your team becomes individually as well as team-tactically more pressing-resistant, you’ll find the following chapters in the eBook:​ Tactical principles to identify the opposing pressing Valuable changes of perspectives Fundamentals for an individual skillset to break pressing Specific Strategies to solve a blocked goal-kick Match solutions for the play on the wing and in the center Practical training exercises for a perfect transfer onto the pitch A core element of most offensive strategies, is usually the attempt to press the opponent into motion, more precisely, into sprinting. Pressing distinguishes itself by players creating high pressure on the ball carrier. Why don’t we consequently consider that opposing pressure in a positive way and use it for our own strategy? That’s exactly the aspect I want to discuss in “Pressing-Resistance”. „The opponent only has ten players as well. If he creates numerical advantage somewhere on the pitch, somewhere else has to be a numerical disadvantage - that’s simple logic.” (Carlo Ancelotti) Exploit the weak points of the pressing! “If a coach considers the opposing pressing in a positive way, strategic aspects become more important, because: Behind every good pressing strategy is an idea, how the ball is supposed to be won. To counter that strategy, I developed all kinds of match solutions, which orient on common pressing strategies and specifically focus on weak spots. To focus on these weak spots, it can happen that specific types of players find themselves in unfamiliar positions on the pitch. Therewith, I purposefully want to provide suggestions and break up common thinking patterns.” (Steven Turek) Chances and Risks If Pressing-Resistance is successfully implemented, different advantages emerge: A favorable ratio of players in the attack after successfully outplaying the first pressing-line Adjustment-Mechanisms of the opponent (for example quick dropping towards their own goal, strategic fouls and so on) Demoralization of the opponent, when pressing-strategies don’t work

It analyses positional systems, game realistic situations and solves tactical problems such as when the opposition are sitting in a deep low block (‘Parking the Bus’), all using the advice provided from professional coaches who have been involved in the implementation of the Tiki-Taka philosophy.
