What's new on The Coaching Manual?

May 27th 2021

Written by The Coaching Manual

In the last couple of months, we've seen a wealth of fantastic content added to The Coaching Manual, featuring a number of training sessions recorded in partnership with the League Managers Association (LMA).

Here, we take a look at some of the recent new content that is available toPremium TCM subscribers, including Masterclasses, interviews, and articles.


March saw the release of Lincoln City manager Michael Appleton's Attacking Overloads Masterclass - in which Appleton coaches players how to use attacking overloads, forward runs with underlaps and overlaps, and also switching play.

Last month, we added Aitor Karanka's Tactical Play Masterclass to the platform. In the session, Karanka coaches players on how to focus on both attack and defensive principles in one practice, as well as discussing the importance of attacking overloads.


As well as the new Masterclass content, we've uploaded a number of interviews with high-profile coaches, in which they discuss their career in football, lessons they've learned along the way, and share advice for coaches of all levels.

Take a look at our latest interviews here:

In support of the Masterclass and interview series, our Head of Content Lee Fletcher has put together a number of in-depth articles exploring and expanding on some of the concepts covered by the LMA coaches.
