From the editor
Since the last issue we have done a lot of work on the website. This issue is as diverse as ever with the second in our series of three articles on the Czech FA/UEFA A License Training, Physiology. With a three part series we can go into more depth on a subject. We also explore what it is like to coach one of the world minnows, Malta and have an interesting interview with Ron Jans from Dutch club FC Groningen. And of course Paul Cooper at the grass roots level wondering what is happening to Mini Soccer as the ‘win at all costs’ brigade take over the children’s game.
It is only a few weeks before another new year which will be an exciting one for both football coaches and fans alike as it is a World Cup year. We still have the play offs to come, but already many of the big guns are through. The current holders Brazil will be there in Germany. And what about the Orange revolution in Holland with Van Basten at the helm? Have we now got a team of winners in the Netherlands?
As you know SoccerCoachingInternational is more than just a magazine: it’s the complete soccer coaching experience!
Yours in soccer,
Managing Editor SCI
