Description

Really well explained and the art alongside the text (which is also great in its own right) helps to clarify what's being said. One thing I can't really dock him for is that the book is already somewhat out of date, even though it's only four years old.

There are a decent amount of easy diagrams in each chapter that also help provide a key visual breakdowns of pass routes and blocking schemes. Explore the latest FA Cup matchups: Blackburn/Wrexham vs Newcastle, Chelsea/Aston Villa vs Leeds/Plymouth, and more. Pat Kirwan uses images and a lot of words to make sure he gets the point across for each position and scheme he needs to explain. Particularly compelling were the "Know Your Influences" sections that detailed the impact of significant figures throughout the history of the world game.The premise of Pat Kirwan's "Take Your Eye Off The Ball" is simple: outside of the typical sideline shot that highlights most NFL plays on TV, there are a thousand-and-one other things transpiring that can give clues as to what is really going on beyond just following the flight of the ball. Er worden veel basisprincipes behandeld of zaken die een voetbalkenner als vanzelfsprekend ervaart, waardoor je weinig bijleert. To begin, the book starts out by explaining how you as a person can be involved in the game without even having to be on the field, you can keep score and what the positions the team is playing as well as the formation and substitutions the team is making. I do like the Tifo guys and their brilliant and funny podcast as my other half had them on every night during the World cup.

There are charts the author uses to analyze the games and easy concepts to help understand what is going on and who is on the field (21 personnel, 12 personnel, etc).It was fun and easy to read like their YouTube videos are fun and easy to understand, but there's so many topics in there I would've loved a deep dive on like Johan Cruyff ideas or the concept of creating space in football. Hospitality packages include match tickets and a host of other extras, ranging from fantastic food and drink options to car parking, match programmes and souvenir gifts.
