Jed C. Davies
The Philosophy of Football: In Shadows of Marcelo Bielsa by Jed C. Davies is a product of three and a half years of research, interviews over coffee tables, bus journeys through foreign countries and the development of an idea. The idea has been a simple one: to theorise and understand the philosophy of one of the most influential football coaches in the history of the game: Marcelo Bielsa.
From training sessions, rotations and movement to the languages of the game and the #1-3-3-1-3 formation. Davies has explored many of the themes that merge into one to form the Argentine´s football thinking. The Philosophy of Football: In Shadows of Marcelo Bielsa delivers best in its attempt to celebrate football played between lines: between the opposition midfield and defensive lines. Between enemy lines.
In the eighteen chapters of Davies book, no page is without theme of placing value upon a pass and tackling the war in that exists football philosophy, among those who prioritise positioning. The infamous seven lines of play are given context within a specific playing style of vertical football.
This book has been written for football coaches and those wishing to develop a greater understanding of the game on a tactical level, providing a framework to analyse the game through, but most of all this book has been written to act as a reference of the game. For this reason, examples given in the book are diverse, from The Chile National Team and Athletic Bilbao to Juanma Lillo`s Millonarios and Gary Speed´s Wales coming thogether to form The Philosophy of Football.
