The Football Manager Playbook is finally here and we are pleased to announce the release of our first Football Manager book. Titled – View From The Touchline Presents Cleon Hobson – The Football Manager Playbook Part 1.
Firstly, The Football Manager Playbook is the first of many we have planned over the next few months and years.
Secondly, What is this book about? Well like I’ve said before hopefully this is the first of many I create. This is why I decided to start at the beginning and tackle the difficult subject of how to create a tactic. The book has 13 actual Football Manager chapters in it along with an intro and credits section.
Each chapter of the Football Manager book follows from the next and I felt it was important to tell the story that I wanted to tell. I don’t want to call this a guide as such because I believe it is more than that but essentially, I wanted to create something that felt like a step-by-step story/guide.
Thirdly, the book covers all the steps needed to translate your ideas into Football Manager and helps you create a tactic even if you perhaps don’t have an idea initially. I’m hoping over time that this becomes some kind of starting/reference point for people when creating a tactic on Football Manager.
Another thing that I am hoping for is that it makes people strip back to the basics in their thinking and allows them to play in complex ways by keeping it all simple.
Furthermore, the key to that in my opinion is not overthinking stuff and if we use a player role, duty or any kind of tactical setting on Football Manager, you understand what it actually does. I want to try and give you meaning for why you select something and understand why something does or doesn’t work.
The Chapters in the book are as follows:
Football Manager Playbook PDF Version
Football Manager Epub Version
We tried to upload the book to all the popular stores like iBooks, Kindle etc but had some issues which still need sorting. But we do have an Epub version you can download it’s just you have to manually add it to your libraries. If you don’t know how to do that follow these two links;

I hope that you all enjoy the book as much as I did writing it.
