“Excellent book covering the 4-2-3-1 system. It sets out different ways of playing the system and how to develop coaching sessions with a view to implementing the system with your team. This is a book for the more experienced coach and would be useful for a coach working at a professional or semi professional level. The 4-2-3-1 system set out requires a high level of technical ability and tactical understanding among players involved in order to fulfill its potential. A useful tool for any coach to have even if they don’t intend to use this system with their players.”
