Pressing has the ability to expose defenders in possession, frustrate opposing teams, and create waves of attacking momentum that can help win games. This book studies top coaches like Pep Guardiola, Diego Simeone, Jurgen Klopp, Marceol Bielsa, Brendan Rodgers, Anson Dorrance, and Mauricio Pochettino, who may not have invented pressing, but have taken it to new levels by developing unique systems to suit the demands of the game today. In addition, they have successfully created team cultures in which players are prepared to go above and beyond for one another. Aimed at coaches of all levels, Modern Soccer Coach: Pressing offers a unique insight into the different areas that coaches must address when developing a successful pressing system, including developing play models, training methodology, player profiles, scouting systems, team culture and the philosophy of the coach.

The XL

This is our XL notebook made with waterproof stone paper internal pages and a water resistant cover. The Duktig Brand XL has more space to diagram and more space for notes. A great companion to the Trainer 2.0, the XL is perfect for when you need the space to think and experiment. Extra large space for extra large plans.

Size: 7x10 inches

Color: Black

Exterior: Water resistant, soft cover, black stitching, flexible binding 

Interior: Waterproof stone paper, 104 pages, dot grid stone paper throughout, perforated pages in the back

Notes: All writing utensils will work on stone paper, but if you use a pen with water-based ink, the ink will still run when exposed to water. If you are concerned with keeping your XL waterproof be sure to check to make sure the ink in your pen is oil-based, or use a pencil. Our Duktig Brand pen is oil-based and most ballpoint pens are safe to use. 

We do not recommend intentional submersion or extended exposure to water on our products. While the stone paper is inherently waterproof and your notes should be safe, the covers of these books are still made of a regular paper and coated to make them waterproof. The edges of the front and back cover can still suffer water damage when exposed to heavy amounts of liquid.
