'A masterful work, It's all deliciously nerdy - a cross between a coaching manual and a social history - and if its publication helps foster a flowering of interest in the tactical and analytical side of the game in this country, it could be the best thing to have happened to English football in years.****' TIME OUT - Book of the Week 'Facts and stats, plus anecdotes, interviews and Wilson's deft touch with football-speak, give colour to a subject that can be a little dry and all-too confusing for those watching (and often those picking the side).' GQ 'For a detailed analysis of how a single striker became the norm throughout football, you had better read Jonathan Wilson's excellent new book about tactics.' -- Patrick Barclay SUNDAY TELEGRAPH '[A] fascinating history of tactics, a book that is guaranteed to enhance your football watching; your team may still lose, but you'll have a far better idea why they did.' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'This must surely go down as one of the most revelatory sports books of the year, as well as one of the best, who would have thought that a book charting the history of football tactics and strategy, from the 1870s to the present day, could be so engrossing and entertaining.' SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY 'Absorbing and informative' GUARDIAN ON-LINE 'A gloriously readable, eccentric and informative trawl through the changing tactical mindsets and formations that have helped shape the beautiful game.' METRO 'You will never read a more entertaining or erudite history of tactics' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH - Christmas Books 'This is a masterful piece of research and lives up to the claim to be nothing less than "a history of football tactics"... Facinating' SCOTSMAN - Books of the Year 'a fascinating analysis of the way the game has evolved tactically from the 1970s until the last season... as a summary of the first 140 years of football tactical history, it is hard to imagine a more readable or thorough effort.' IRISH EXAMINER


Loved by soccer geeks and used by soccer coaches across the world, here is the first North American edition of the book regarded by many as the best book ever on soccer tactics.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An essential, if challenging, book for the novice 4. Februar 2017
Von W. Martyn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
(Reviewing the U.S. version of the book) This is a wonderful book for someone of an intellectual mindset coming to soccer as an adult. Wilson explains the early development of the sport, how duties came to be assigned to particular positions, and how those duties and positions evolved over time. He also describes how national styles developed, with a particular emphasis on how England came to its particular directness and physicality, and how it has failed to learn many lessons.

I had only two complaints. The first is that Wilson repeatedly will switch from talking about one club, manager, or strategy to another without clear transitions or set-up for the new topic. This gets very confusing at times. The second is that this book is a challenge for non-British readers. Wilson assumes that the reader has a fairly detailed historical knowledge of British soccer. He'll refer casually to managers, players, and incidents of 100 or 150 years ago on the assumption that everyone knows who or what they are. That can make it difficult to understand some parts of the narrative.

And now a special note of derision for the U.S. version of the book. The publisher appears to have recognized that Americans are getting more interested in soccer, and responded by producing an edition that, as far as I can tell, did nothing but search and replace "football" with "soccer," including in the subtitle. It comes off quite oddly in some places, particularly in references to "Total Soccer" instead of "Total Football." To be clear, any American who has taken the effort to read this book is accustomed to hearing the sport we know of as "soccer" called "football." If they wanted to produce a book for the U.S. market, their efforts would have been better spent by producing a glossary or adding some footnotes explaining the things that every Briton knows.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A bible for any football (or soccer) fan 31. Mai 2015
Von Raul Velasquez - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The mother of all football tactics literature. It's very well written, taking you in a journey from the very beginnings of the sport, up to 2008 and its most recent tactical innovations. If you're a football nut like me you'll get such a high from reading this. Not only are the well known schools of cattenaccio and tiki-taka well presented, but much deserved attention is paid to the coffee shop football era and the contributions made by teams and coaches within the USSR.

For the casual fan it might present you with an opportunity to finally fall in love with the beautiful game. Mr. Jonathan Wilson has done a fantastic job taking football tactics right from the blackboard to paper, all without leaving anything behind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 2-3-5 v. W-M v. 4-2-4 v. 4-4-2 v. 4-2-3-1 v. 3-5-2 19. Juli 2015
Von Wayne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The subtitle of this book is "The History of Soccer Tactics," but it's so much more than that! Author Jonathan Wilson discusses the personalities--players, managers, journalists and even supporters and politicians--as well as the social conditions--colonialism and the Cold War, for example--that have brought the game to life over the years.

I would not necessarily recommend this book for beginners, as Wilson employs terminology that I think requires at least a rudimentary knowledge of the game. I've been a more-or-less casual football fan for some years, and this book has pushed me along toward a more sophisticated understanding. I think it's a perfect resource for anyone in a similar situation.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Exactly as it is Titled 13. Januar 2013
Von Usvaldo de Leon, Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is, exactly as titled, a history of football tactics, from the unorganized scrum of the mid 19th century through the 'pyramid' days of 2-3-5, to the myriad formations of today. I do not know enough about the history of soccer tactics to speak directly to the accuracy of the history given, but it feels authoritative. It starts in England, switches to Scotland, transfers to Central Europe, on to South America with special attention paid to Brazil, then back to Italy, etc. This focus on how the game spread around the globe and how regional differences were introduced that then went on to have international implications and influences.

The book, written by an Englishman, is Anglocentric, but England birthed the country and with the growth of the BPL is sort of the epicenter of the soccer world. All in all a very worthwhile read for anyone interested in learning the history of how soccer is played.

Clear, expertly written, detailed, and comprehensive, this book is the best place to start if you're interested in advancing your understanding of the why the game is played the way it is today.
