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.

I love to learn from the great and successful teams who help to evolve the game. For my second book of the series, I wanted to use my skills to create great content for coaches all over the world to improve their training sessions. I decided to analyse the most successful national team in recent years, Spain. They are a team which play attractive, but also effective football and have
conquered all before them. The period in which all these goals were scored was 2008-2012 (official competitive games) when Spain won Euro 2008, the World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012.

I think this is a book which provides content that has not been produced before. We have combined a comprehensive analysis of the phases of play which lead to goals with training exercises that can be used for coaches to train the same tactical situations used with many formations such as the 4-4-2, 4-3-3, 4-1-4-1 and 4-2-3-1.

    Foreword by Vicente Del Bosque
    Vicente Del Bosque

    I think this book can be considered a prize for the years of work done by professionals working in the Football Schools of the RFEF (Spanish Football Federation). All of them are very good coaches, but what is more important in my point of view, is that they are great educators.

    I have the opportunity to see the work that is done with the children in the schools of the RFEF live. I am proud to observe the treatment of the students. As well as teaching them all the technical skills they need and how to position themselves on the pitch, they are instilled in the values of fellowship, teamwork, discipline, and respect for their coach, teammates and opponents.

    Eduardo Valcárcel

    I am the Director of the School of the Real Federación Española de Fútbol (Spanish Football Federation). For many years, I have had the great dream of creating a book to include all of our football practices we use at the Spanish Football Federation. It has not been an easy task, because in it I wanted to capture the work of many coaches who, with love and dedication, give every day, so that the children can progress and learn in the best way possible.

    The Football School of the Spanish Federation currently has more than 800 students aged between 4 and 15 years old. We take into account the application of the methodology of learning by age, so that the child ends up being an athlete and a professional football player.

    Throughout the season, we practice these exact types of activities, because we consider it fundamental that the children learn and understand the practices perfectly, and little by little, work on variations that make them more difficult, forcing them to strive for the perfect execution.

    One hundred percent of the work done today, is undoubtedly one of the great and most profitable changes of all these years in football. Developing players need to train while always using the ball - with it the work will always be much better and more fruitful. This is my best advice, to always have players using a ball in your sessions from beginning to end, for all practices.
