Review:

a fascinating analysis of the way the game has evolved tactically from the 1970s until the last season... as a summary of the first 140 years of football tactical history, it is hard to imagine a more readable or thorough effort. * IRISH EXAMINER * This is a masterful piece of research and lives up to the claim to be nothing less than "a history of football tactics"... Facinating * SCOTSMAN -Books of the Year * You will never read a more entertaining or erudite history of tactics * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH-CHRISTMAS BOOKS * A gloriously readable, eccentric and informative trawl through the changing tactical mindsets and formations that have helped shape the beautiful game. * METRO * Absorbing and informative * GUARDIAN ON LINE * This must surely go down as one of the most revelatory sports books of the year, as well as one of the best, who would have thought that a book charting the history of football tactics and strategy, from the 1870s to the present day, could be so engrossing and entertaining. * SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY * [A] fascinating history of tactics, a book that is guaranteed to enhance your football watching; your team may still lose, but you'll have a far better idea why they did. * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * For a detailed analysis of how a single striker became the norm throughout football, you had better read Jonathan Wilson's excellent new book about tactics. -- Patrick Barclay * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * Facts and stats, plus anecdotes, interviews and Wilson's deft touch with football-speak, give colour to a subject that can be a little dry and all-too confusing for those watching (and often those picking the side). * CQ * A masterful work, It's all deliciously nerdy - a cross between a coaching manual and a social history - and if its publication helps foster a flowering of interest in the tactical and analytical side of the game in this country, it could be the best thing to have happened to English football in years.**** * TIME OUT - book of the week *

Book Description Orion Publishing Co, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In INVERTING THE PYRAMID, Jonathan Wilson pulls apart the finer details of the world s game, tracing the global history of tactics, from modern pioneers right back to the beginning when chaos reigned. Along the way, he looks at the lives of great players and thinkers who shaped the sport and probes why the English, in particular, have proved themselves unwilling to grapple with the abstract .This fifth-anniversary edition of a football modern classic has been fully updated to include an investigation of the modern-day Barcelona and how their style of play developed from Total Football, which itself was an evolution of the Scottish passing game invented by Queens Park and taken on by Tottenham in the 1930s. It also analyses different styles in the early British game and the changing mentality of South American football in the 1970s, as well as looking at the birth of the 3-5-2 system so prevalent today.
