One of the best I have come across and used consistently for tactics, skills building,motivation, nutrition and fitness is : http://successinsoccer.com/home/current/

I apologize for the cover page but there again it demonstrates how easy it is to take the piss out of the tims defence 4 v 1?

I strongly recommend this publication as a course of study in the science of football and it demonstartes the commitment the Americans have towards the game and how much time, money and effort they are prepared to put into it. Their youth system is second to none in terms of set-up, facilities and training, ask any coach or player who has travelled there. Craig Brown has been there many times and is highly respected (I know many here do not share this) but trust me , I have seen him take a top level youth team and put them through a session.

Take a subscription to this fine magazine, you will become hooked and the outcome can only benefit you, your team and the game as a whole. One thing you will learn is coaching is not about shouting instruction sthrough the game, it is too late by then and a sign you have not done your homework.

Cheers so far for the PMs and advice, no Laudrup I don't but im willing to start paying for a site but was wanting to know if anyone uses any and what there views were on it. I should of said in my original post I have been coaching for over 10 years but always kids and at pro youth and as you know its about player development but now I am the manager of an amateur team and looking drills/sessions for more ideas on shaping, formations, tactics etc

I'd be quite interested in any PMs too. I'm building up a library of videos that I can go through whenever I need to freshen up sessions.

YouTube is a hive of classic foreign coaching tapes from the 80s and 90s. I've found ones from Italy, Holland, Spain, Brazil and so on. The Arrigo Sacchi 4-4-2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e53nGPMqQTE) one is particularly good for teaching you how to develop your team's positioning in a number of scenarios (attacking, defending etc.).

Inside Soccer is one I like a lot, but a paid website.

I'd also welcome any PMs, currently running training for my amateur side until we get a manager in and finding drills that keep a squad with an average age of 20 is hard going.
