The third part of the series “German Top Level Tactics” thematizes attacking with the long ball. In the known pattern “Fundamental Principles - Match-Situation - Exercises”, Steven Turek answers among many others topics, the following questions:

  • What technical and tactical skills requires a team willing to attack with long balls?
  • How can I effectively use the shifting movement of the opposing team for my purposes?
  • Which solutions can precisely be implemented during the match?
  • Which mechanisms are necessary in case of losing the ball?
  • Which coherence exists between attacking with long balls and counterpressing?

After these basics, concrete match-situations will be described. The situations will be illustrated with detailed explanations, possible error sources and “what-if-situations”.
The book is rounded off by a well balanced practical part in which different exercises for all ages are explicitly described.
