As has been recently highlighted, UK Football Residential Director Tim Lees recently gave open talks on academy philosophy, 11 a side principles and development pathways. The talks were hugely successful and formed a part of long term friend of iFDA, Jed Davies, highly acclaimed Inspire! events.
Most education is already provided on The iFDA Football Residential Course or UK Football trials ran by The iFDA. One key feature of Tim’s talk was the role of the deep lying playmaker / deepest centre midfielder. Part five of his interview can be seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opJIEbDqEJY
