Best Football Coaching Links of the Week: Sevilla, Football Drills & More

This has been a magical season for Lincoln City.  Not only did they reach the Quarter Finals of the FA Cup but they won the Football Conference National League, hitting ninety nine points and marking their return to League Two in style.  The main architects of those successes were the management team made up of brothers Danny and Nicky Cowley.  Kevin Graham had the opportunity to spend a day with them them as they went about their coaching duties.  These were his observations.

Football drills: the full triangle method.

Whilst Sevilla have tended to be the ones spoken about when it comes to small Spanish clubs who have made the most of what resources have been available, Athletic Bilbao’s achievements also deserves to be studied.  This article, analysing their methods, makes amends.

Talking of Athletic Bilbao, this interview with their young goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga – who at 22 years of age is already a first team regular – offers a number of fascinating insights on how his career has developed.  Thanks to the Blueprint for Football reader who pointed me in the direction of this interview.

“You can lose a game, but what you cannot lose is the dignity earned by playing good football” – Cesar Luis Menotti, World Cup Winning Coach with Argentina in 1978.
