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.
