A wealth of practical and science-based data about football has been accumulated through the years, but until now it has not been suitably presented to the coaches, players and students of the game who would most benefit from it. Soccer Science, edited by Tony Strudwick, Head of Athletic Performance at Manchester United, fills this void with the best and most current research on the sport. Each topic is addressed by an international expert in a specific facet of the game and every chapter is filled with facts, findings and insights for optimising individual and team soccer performance. The all-star author panel features the world's foremost authorities in football history, biomechanics, physiology, psychology, skill acquisition and coaching, tactical approaches, and performance and match analysis to produce the most significant and comprehensive work ever published about the sport. Offering the right balance of sophistication and accessibility, the significance of the topics covered in Soccer Science will be easily recognised by those with greater knowledge and experience, and also provide valuable insights to those still learning the finer points of the sport.
