Fresh Material

Published / by admin

Done some reorganizing and rewriting to keep the standard of text up, obviously the main focus of the blog is to offer up some dedicated ideas to coached looking to source in some new material, so I have also added a page dedicated to such a cause so head here to tap into said category.

The Rondo

Perfect quote which sums up the usage of the classic Rondo.

“Everything that goes on in a match, except shooting, you can do in a rondo. The competitive aspect, fighting to make space, what to do when in possession and what to do when you haven’t got the ball, how to play ‘one touch’ soccer, how to counteract the tight marking and how to win the ball back.”

Coerver Review

Published / by admin / 3 Comments on Coerver Review

The Coerver Diploma took place over the weekend, interesting insight into how the concept was created and how they think things should be done. Day one consisted of a two of lectures expressing the concept, in between each lecture there was a practical sessions where you have the opportunity to take part and understand the detail behind the idea. The lectures themselves are finely balanced during each the great Charlie Cooke himself went into some serious details full of enthusiasm, the idea is simply to create a skilled individual confident enough to take on players.

The second day consisted of the same, a couple of lectures and 2 practical sessions, one of which included concept in action where the u13s section of Livingston FC took part instead of all us old coaches. The price tag was a whole £200, all the content came with a certificate of attendance, notepad and handbook detailing the drills expressed during the two day period.

A recommendation.
