Elite Soccer: The Collectors’ Series gives you training sessions conducted by managers at the highest levels of the game so they are not for everyone.

It’s more than just big name managers
The big names appearing in these books make them unique. But if the best manager in the world gave you a session plan that you couldn’t understand it would be worthless.
That’s why we’ve spent so much time making sure you can understand every word – even if English isn’t your first language!
We also invest in the best quality illustrations going. Hi-resolution and full colour, there are no x’s or o’s in sight.
Take a look at this session from Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle to see exactly what we’ve done to make these books not only the most authoritative coaching resources you own, but also the easiest to use.
Session overview – The manager tells you what the session is about, why they use it, and often when they will use it (“We do this on a Tuesday"). They also try to relate it to a passage of play you might have seen on tv or could find on the internet to see the pay-off in a match.
Set-up – Tells you what you’ll need to run the session. But don’t worry, the sessions in Elite Soccer: The Collectors’ Series don’t require any specialist equipment. Cones, bibs, goals and balls are pretty much all you’ll ever need.
Getting started – Tells you everything you need to know to get the session going.
The coach – Never heard of the coach providing the session? Find out about his coaching history. Be confident that you can trust the sessions from these high profile managers and coaches.
Progression - Explains how you can move the session on and adapt it. Every team has different requirements, make the session work for yours by increasing or decreasing the difficulty.
Match situations – Even the professionals like to end the training session with a game. This part makes sure your end game is reinforcing the session’s key points.
Technical/tactical considerations – Analyse what your players are doing well, and where there is room for improvement. The managers give you the main things to look out for.
Diagrams – The clearly laid out diagrams in Elite Soccer: The Collectors’ Series enable you to easily visualise the sequence of movements involved in each drill.
Key - Is that a pass or a player run? Avoid any confusion with an explanation of the graphics used on the diagrams, making even complicated learning scenarios easy to follow. You’d be amazed how many coaching books miss this vital element that makes the sessions so much easier to understand.
So, it costs thousands, right?
Wrong! These sessions are coaching gold–dust but we are able to offer them to you at a fantastically affordable price. From just £37, you can buy one book and if you buy both at once, prices start from just £67! Who else can offer you coaching sessions written by Ferguson, Moyes, Redknapp, McLeish, Hodgson, Holloway, Pardew and more for just £67? That is only 93p per session!
Think about everything else you spend to put your training sessions on. £67 is just a drop in the ocean but it can add more value to your sessions and produce more results for your team than any other coaching resource.
