Tactics Manager Software Review – Yes Or No?

There's a reason to Tactics Manager Software be the first software to be reviewed in FootballCoachingSoftwares. Besides all the new features on the new version (2.3) , accessibility and functionality are quality synonyms present in this powerful software.

Before I start talking about Tactics Manager Software and give you some insights of this software, I would like to share with you some personal experiences.

When I started creating and planing soccer drills at the age of 14 (I was a player at the same time), I realized that there wasn't any program fully adapted to soccer training methodology. Or if there was, I couldn't find it.

As a matter of fact, I even had question my coach if he knew some program/software that could help me design my own soccer drill or at least make a detailed description about the methodology behind a "simple" football exercise.

I will never forget his answer:

"Why Do You Need A Football Software If You Have A Brain". *Upset Mode*

As the same time that I'm writing, unconsciousness my brain is doing an auto-analysis about the different ideologies that this simple answer lead me until this day.

Let me be clear to you:

First, I was only 14! Isn't it curious when an adult listen to a "child" ask for something that we never thought about? For him, it seems like it wasn't. For me, it is! Moreover, he taught me that when a similar episode happens to me, if it happens, my emotional/ethical approach will never be the same as his!

Second, the negative intuition that he applies on his answer, made me think if I was right or wrong. Nowadays, I can visualize that he felt resentful with my question, probably because he assumed that I was questioning his training methods. But no, it was the opposite! My honest feeling was to understand if there were tools to assist me in the creation and the design of my own tactics, practices and plan sessions.

Third, and the most important for me, it made me research how I could achieve my objective by myself. And yes, I could arrange a way to do it. How? I used paint to design a standard football field and then I was adding the players, nets and other stuff as I needed. Of course, that this method nowadays is an archaic way to study or even demonstrate to anyone, but for me and my limited knowledge at that time it worked.

After some months designing and planing my own football exercise drills with the method that I described above, one friend of mine told me that he had find a new soccer software that has been helping him daily constructing his training sessions.
