I will make a tactic again inspired by Marcello Lippi. The World Cup legendary winning coach shows us everyday day the meaning of never giving up. In such age he accepted the challenge to move in China and despite the initial difficulties he managed to win the Champions League of Asia and to become the only coach who has win both Asian & European Champions League. Someone will say, that's easy for a world champion. It's not easy at all to be 65 and to move in the other side of the world when you already have won anything. It's very difficult to leave the rest of your Viareggio and to move in the wild Asia... We know how many coaches struggled in Asian football.
Lippi didn't promise any new project, any new "football revolution" because all the great coaches make actions, application. Not like Guardiola, Wenger, Ancelotti and co who base everything in their players. And when the game is over, the players deserve everything. But when something is wrong "I am covered up, I explained everything to my players, that's their blame". Lippi is not this kind of person, that's why he changed so many clubs. Zero tolerance, zero public relationship and mostly equally sharp with everybody. Even with himself, like he did after the fiasco of 2010 World Cup: "I apologize, I made many mistakes, everything is my fault. I leave immediately the National Team, I failed".
This is a lesson of life for the future Peseiros, Guardiola, Jorge Mendes, Valdano, Suster, Vilas Boas and co. These marionettes cannot understand the meaning of being a true man who speaks sharp, laconically without shaking hands and fingers in order to express his opinion. Such guys like Lippi, Sir Alex, Leo Beenhakker and co are very rare nowadays. We are fed up of spoilt neo-zionists who have as their own pedigree their religious beliefs. Who are capable of selling Messi just because they need to satisfy their bosses from Nike and Qatar foundation. Who are world class lawyers and they are willed to married a famous porn star just because they can pay her the most, especially when Laporta name is still popular.
After all, there will always be a Marcello Lippi for every Vilas Boas ...
Always World Champions are showing the way to the crowd ...
Forget Kabalah and the rest talmudic wc theories, look yourself in the mirror and think ...
Do you believe in something or no? Do you serve it or you betray it? Do you love it or not?
Marcello did in his late 60s and he is enjoying the crops of his glory. You the rest, stay with agony and worry what will happen in your life.
This tactic is the epitome of Italian football. Sharp, balanced, variable, compact, severe, elastic, flexible, aggressive, disciplined.
The FM14 tacticIn my second season with Juve, I made the best record ever in Serie A because simply I have put the bases from last season. However, I was intriguing from a new formation which I have not used yet. 4-2-3-1 gave me the motive to go forward on it. Marcello Lippi confirmed my ideas, by presenting a similar formation against Monterey and Atletico Mineiro. He won the first, but the referees wanted Ronaldinho to beat Guanghzou. So one victory-one defeat. The match against Bayern cannot count, because the difference is till the space. However, he was very competent on blocking Bayern's key players during most of the game.
I have posted plenty of images, so if you read my previous article about Marcello Lippi tactics you will understand much more.
The most interesting fact is that I humiliated Barcelona in C. League finals without victimizing football. Simply make extensive fitness and tactics training. Avoid on using this tactic immediately, consider every possible alteration.
Use players who are fast, multi positioned and balanced tactically.
"The road who leads to the glory is lonely. But it deserves the try because the end is sweet."- Marcello Lippi on Gazzetta dello Sport in 2006 just after winning the world cup.
