Dear Fellow Coach,

Why is it that FC Barcelona seem to have so many playing options?

There are a few reasons, but here we show one of them. Our example shows the tactics Pep Guardiola uses when playing against the 4-4-2.

Pep plays with 3 defenders allowing one defender (Alves) to push up and help create superiority in midfield.

This enables Barca to always have extra playing options, which is one of the reason why they can play out from the back with such ease..

  • I played for several teams in the Greek professional leagues. At the age of 29 I stopped playing and focused on studying football coaching. I have been head coach of several semi-pro football teams and worked as a technical director in the Academies of DOXA Dramas (Greek football league, 2nd division).

    I wrote and published two books "4-3-3 the application of the system" and "4-4-2 with diamond in midfield, the application of the system".

    I decided to proceed in something more specific so coaches would have an idea of how top teams apply the same systems. Analysing games tactically is a great love and strength of mine. I think teams only have success when they prepare well tactically.

    I have watched Barcelona in most of their league and Champions league matches for the last seven years and less frequently over the past twenty years. I believe that this Barcelona side is by far the best Barcelona I have ever seen. Their attractive style of play and success in winning trophies has made them the best side in the world.

    I have analysed Barcelona’s tactics for this book, which together with the teams’ incredible technical ability allows Barca to perform their attractive brand of football. I watched every Barcelona game in the 2010-11 season creating a set of highly detailed notes on each. I watched many of the matches over 20 times. The matches were separated according to the opposing team’s formation.

    These books are made up of over a 1000 hours of extensive tactical research and analysis of Guardiola’s Barcelona side.
