A soccer player is more than the sum of his parts: endurance, speed, shooting technique, passing technique, and many more. All of these factors need to be turned into one system to create good players. Traditional training theory doesn’t achieve that because each skill is trained individually. This is why the concept of Tactical Periodization has become the preferred training theory for many of the current most successful soccer coaches: Pep Guardiola, José Mourinho, Diego Simeone, André Villas-Boas, and many others train according to these principles. By creating match-like situations in practice, players learn to link their technical, tactical, and athletic abilities to match intelligence. They will learn to transfer their skills to soccer matches and they can improve endurance, technique, and tactics all at the same time while enjoying the practice sessions more. For this book, the author has evaluated and analyzed hundreds of training sessions and has tailored exercises to specific demands. All exercises are performed with a ball so that players learn to apply each skill to the game. Every coach will find numerous exercises in this book to help them create better and more efficient practice sessions so they can improve their players’ and the team’s performance. With Tactical Periodization, your team will become better and be successful on the next match day!

Guardiola's first job as a full time coach was at FC Barcelona. At the time, the Barcelona Reserve Team or "Barcelona B" were doing very poorly, facing relegation. The club knew they needed to make a change, as the management mulled over possible replacements, but when the Directors of Barcelona found out Guardiola was interested in coaching, the choice was easy. Everyone at Barcelona held Pep in the highest regard, believing he would be a great coach. That belief would turn out to be correct, as Pep took over Barcelona B and didn't disappoint. He re-organized the training sessions, modernized the rondos, brought a relentless level of intensity to training and insisted on build-up play and possession, even on the tightest and smallest of fields. The results of Pep's efforts were seen immediately that first year, as Guardiola's Barcelona B won the league title. However, at the same time that Pep's Barcelona B won the league, the Barcelona first team under Frank Rijkaard was struggling. They had all the big names and talent, but they were not playing well, failing to win any major titles. The club was at a crossroads, big decisions needed to be made to get Barcelona back to winning trophies. Barcelona were certainly impressed with Pep, but this was Barcelona after all, and Pep only had one year experience as a manager, and that was with the B team. The club President gave the issue a lot of thought, and in the end he decided to ask Pep if he was interested in the job; Pep responded by saying "you wouldn't have the balls....but with me you will win everything." The rest was history, as Barcelona would go on to win title after title under Guardiola. Pep would eventually leave Barcelona in 2012, having accomplished everything there was to accomplish with the club......this case study covers his entire managerial career along with Pep's ideas about management and soccer game model philosophies. It is a very short book but packed with powerful quotes and information. For any coach teaching positional soccer, it is more important to understand the ideas, then the actual training sessions.

BARCELONA are the greatest football team in the world, the greatest for a generation and possibly the greatest of all time. This is the untold inside story of how the best and most loved football team in the world came to redefine how the game is played. We start with the 2011 Champions League final at Wembley, the game that ended the debate about whether Barcelona were the greatest team in the world and began a new one: are they the best ever? We are inside the winning dressing room and inside the mind of the team's coach, Pep Guardiola. From there, the focus is on each of the iconic personalities of this team, telling its story through them, from their genesis in the late 1980s to their coronation in London: Guardiola; his mentor, Johan Cruyff; Xavi; Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi, perhaps the greatest footballer of all time.
