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 in Greece and worked as a technical director in the Academies of DOXA Dramas (Greek football league, 2nd division).

I have written 7 other books including: FC Barcelona: A Tactical Analysis - Attacking and Defending. (English, Spanish, Japanese & Korean),
Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid: A Tactical Analysis - Attacking and Defending . (English & Japanese), FC Barcelona Training Sessions - 160 Practices from 34 Tactical Situations and Jurgen Klopp's Attacking and Defending Tactics.

Analysing games tactically is a great love and strength of mine. I think teams have success only when they prepare well tactically.

I have watched Juventus in many of their league and Champions league matches for the last few years and all of them during the 2013- 2014 season. Over 1000 hours of research has enabled me to present a full tactical blueprint of Juventus with supporting training sessions in this book and the attacking book (other part of this book set).

Jed C. Davis

Jedd C. Davis

Jed is the assistant manager and head of analysis for Oxford University Centaurs and has worked with various youth players throughout Europe.

He has studied the methods used at FC Barcelona, Liverpool FC, Swansea FC, Villarreal CF, AFC Ajax and a number of teams developing a particular fascination with the possession based philosophies in football as a way of controlling and winning games.

Tiki-Taka football is a style of football popularised by Spain and Barcelona during the decade ending 2010 and is part of a philosophy in football that has existed right from the game’s very beginnings: a way of controlling the game through possession and positional systems.

Jed Davies has been fortunate enough to speak in great lengths with a number of coaches who work at the clubs who currently advocate the possession based philosophy and in doing so, has developed a clear understanding of what the tiki-taka philosophy is and how it can be developed through purpose designed training sessions.

A train of thought has been developed that football that is played in this way is developed through it’s ‘form’: positional systems, attitudes to building up possession etc. Davies therefore has proposed that football tactics should be designed around the dictum “form follows process”, a way of perfect football within an adaptive structure where the structure and positional system is the agent of change, rather than the players themselves.
