READ Zonal Marking î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB A masterful tour of the most influential soccer tactics that continue to shape the beautiful game Zonal Marking traces the development of soccer in the modern era the game has become globalized but what are the differences in how soccer is played in the major leagues To what extent do nations retain something of their tradi. This is one of the best football books I ve ever read Michael is of course renowned on the internet for looking at individual football games and analyzing them well beyond the typical uestions of whether a goal was stunning or a red card was unfair He looks at patterns running patterns passing patterns tactical patterns With Zonal Marking he is able to take his brilliantly analytical approach and apply it on a macro scale looking at the development and evolution of modern European football over the past 25 yearsBut it is even than that It s not just about tactical concepts like space verticality and gegenpressing The book is also full of uirky anecdotes interesting uotes vivid descriptions of particularly important matches goals and individual contributions As such even though the analysis of each chapter is sharp and well argued the book is never dry For every discussion of Dutch obsession about the concept of space there is a series of uotes by Van Gaal and Cruyf taking pot shots at each other followed by a brilliant move by move description of a Bergkamp goal For every look at Mourinho s new approach to physical conditioning or Juve full backs switching sides there is an anecdote of Hristo Stoichkov punching a photographer at the hospital where the wife of his buddy and rival Romario had given birth It s great stuffThe structure of the book works extremely well Each part deals with the particular contributions by a given European football nation during its particular period of dominance This includes that nation s league clubs national team players and most pertinently the coaches from those nations This allows Cox to go through all of the features that make modern football what it is today but with an added historical flow and an appreciation of certain influencers and innovators as well as national characteristics In places it veers close to feeling contrived but it never is Just when I feel that Cox is about to take a point a bit too far he provides a counter argument himself It makes the book feel balanced and thoughtful and its structure is not a straightjacket All the chapter transitions happen smoothly and to me the author never seems to think that certain features belonged to one footballing nationcoachplayer and them alone then and forever On the contrary it weaves a story of how loads of clubs and national sides have been inspired by Ajax playing from the back later by Italian tactics then by French speed followed by Mourinho s focus on transitions then by Spanish possession obsession afterwards by German gegenpressing all of which are then well and thoroughly mixed and showcased in the multinational English Premier League Nations and individuals inspiring each other and creating new and better results A good example is Guardiola and his thesis tiki taka anti thesis high intensity German pressing and synthesis a Spanish German hybrid full of innovative tactics and increased unpredictability compared to Guardiola s own Braca The narrative really works terrifically In the epilogue Cox even goes a bit poetic about how distinct national characteristics are still present and are still important Happily in this day and age European nations only clash for 90 or 120 minutes at a time The rest of the time football is about inspiring and being inspired across national borders The author even wonders if the lack of English football innovation stems from the fact that English footballers are relatively reluctant to move abroad in search of new opportunities compared to their Spanish French and German counterparts Maybe that is why the Premier League has not been won by an English coach since Leeds in 1991 92 when it was called First Division It s an interesting point that the birthplace of football has had the least marked influence on the rest of Europe while it now incorporates players and coaches from all over the continent providing the perhaps most thrilling league of them all Made me personally think of broader cultural and political parallels to Brexit but that s a different story of courseI also enjoyed that the book goes beyond European and beyond modern football All of the chapters are anchored in the historic traditionsachievementsdisappointments of the nation in uestion going back half a century or at times This provided me with even insight about eras of which I have only superficial knowledge Likewise influences from Latin America and Africa are included where appropriate allowing certain chapters to have a flair of eg Brazil or Argentina without losing focusI thoroughly enjoyed Cox s previous book The Mixer The Story of Premier League Tactics from Route One to False Nines which focused on 25 years of Premier League history However in my opinion Zonal Marking the Making of European Football is an even better book and an even bigger must read for any football fan It provides analyses and showcases patterns but without sacrificing drama and memorable moments It is thoughtful but never dry My only slight gripe is the lack of illustrations of formations or tactics such as in Jonathan Wilson s Inverting the Pyramid The History of Football Tactics or photos of particularly memorable moments or teams They would have added something extra and helped illustrate some of the tactical points just as Cox usually does on his website zonalmarkingnet It s a minor thing however and it does not stop this from being an exhilarating well researched thought provoking page turner Perfect for a summer without football or at any other time of course Confessions of a Slacker Mom unfair He looks at patterns running patterns passing patterns tactical patterns With Zonal Marking he is able to take his brilliantly analytical approach and apply it on a macro scale looking at the development and evolution of modern European football over the past 25 yearsBut it is even than that It s not just about tactical concepts like space verticality and gegenpressing The
