If you’re a football coach, an aspiring one or merely retain an interest in coaching there has never been as good a time as this.
Extensive television coverage of the game means that you can study, and be inspired, by what is happening all over the world. There are innumerable blogs and sites that talk about the various aspects of coaching. On social media you will find people sharing the methods used by the finest teams in the world. And it is easier than ever to find books that detail every aspect of coaching.
For all the information that is out there, however, there’s nothing like a chat with another coach to really appreciate what he’s doing and what can be done differently. There is nothing like hearing someone else’s experiences to compare with your own; analysing what you can learn off them.
It was that belief that inspired the “Blueprint According To…” series of interviews where football coaches spoke about their beginnings, experiences and how their ideas had been shaped, thus getting to the blueprint that was at the basis of their work.
The ultimate aim was to display as many different ideas as possible and the six interviews contained in this book achieve that and more.
They put forward the ideas of coaches from five countries; people who have worked at different levels and have accumulated varying experiences. They spoke, among others, of the benefit of futsal, how to get the respect of players and the importance of having a philosophy that forms how you work.
For any football coach, then, this book offers six blueprints with which they can compare their own views and learn from what others have to say.
