The Managers: The Tactics and Thinkers That Transformed Gaelic Football


The Managers: The Tactics and Thinkers That Transformed Gaelic Football Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is it that makes a successful Gaelic soccer manager?  Is it success as a past player, man management skills, or, in more recent times, a knowledge and understanding of tactics, systems, and game-plans?  Can a winning mindset really be taught or trained? And how can success on the pitch be transferred to success elsewhere?  Daire Whelan traces the evolution and development of Gaelic soccer as seen through the eyes of the game's most influential and successful managers and teams, including the Down 1960s Revolution, the Heffernan-O'Dwyer Years, as well as the rise of Ulster counties, and Kerry's challenge to stick to its traditions in the face of the modern game. He reveals just what it is about the game's leading managers that brought such unparalleled success, and discovers that what works on the training pitch, works in all aspects of life. From the methods to the mindsets, The managers shines a light on how and why success can be achieved on the Gaelic soccer field and beyond.
