Many coaches use passing patterns and shadow play exercises on a regular basis to increase technical ability, improve fitness levels, stimulate movement ideas, build discipline, increase focus, encourage coordinated timed multi player movements and establish a group passing tempo There is no doubt that passing patterns and shadow play exercises are valuable for player development However, at some point it will become important to use specific patterns that directly fit the teams Game Model A Game Model is simply the way you want your team to play it involves the team s style of play, identity and formation The way you train at some point should specifically relate to the way you play training model game model This book takes the 4 2 3 1 soccer formation and provides a series of passing patterns and shadow play exercises that directly relate to the teaching of a flexible 4 2 3 1 formation When player s train using these patterns, they are simulating many of the movements and passing combinations they will encounter when playing the 4 2 3 1 formation in an actual game I understand that no two coaches are the same and every coach will interpret formations in their own way unique way However, I designed this book to teach the 4 2 3 1 formation in a fashion that I consider to be modern, flexible and fluid The training exercises are intended to stimulate movement ideas for players by showing them the vast possibilities that are available by playing a flexible 4 2 3 1 system Ultimately the goal is to encourage different players to fill different spaces though out the game, so players are not just filling the same old predictable spaces assigned to them When a formation is played in a way that it is too robotic and ridged, with no real freedom of movement and interchanging of positions, it becomes predictable, less dynamic, boring and ultimately less effective I prefer to let my players operate under the general umbrella of the 4 2 3 1 formation, while still allowing them the freedom to make their own movement decisions in order to exploit the opponent The exercises presented in this book will aid you in teaching the concepts and ideas needed to be successful playing a fluid and flexible version of the 4 2 3 1 formation....

4-2-3-1 Formation Specific Soccer Passing Patterns & Shadow Play Exercises: Stimulate Movement Ideas Using A Flexible Version of The 4-2-3-1 Formation Reviews
Most of DiBernardo's stuff looks like someone got a hold of a pixel art program for DOS and just put a bunch of characters on a soccer field. Granted, some ideas can be sussed out of it, but don't waste your time as there are many better books out there on formational play and practices (and much easier to read and understand).
Interesting ideas in the book and I love the easy to follow shadow play diagrams. I'm going to try and implement these ideas into my training session and try and run this formation.
