inverting the pyramid …..

Wilson documents the evolution of football tactics and formations from the sport’s foundations to the modern 4-5-1 formation and its variants. Along the way Wilson explains the evolution and rationale behind the Italian Catenaccio style, DutchTotal football, the individual skills of South American football players, and the tactical innovations within the Soviet Union. Wilson repeatedly suggests that the failure to innovate tactically has played a role in the under-achievement of recent English international teams, who have struggled in recent competitions despite the presence of numerous exceptionally talented players.
