Andoni Iraola has been appointed as the new head coach of AFC Bournemouth – read Bryant Marques’ tactical analysis of Iraola’s Bielsa-like tactics to see what we can expect from the Cherries next season.

Kjetil Knutsen has been a coach to keep an eye on for some time now and it is surprising to many he hasn’t moved on to a bigger league – his Bodo/Glimt side are dominating the Eliteserien again and Rui Martins takes a closer look at his tactical evolution.

Luis Enrique looks likely to be the next Paris Saint-Germain head coach – have a read through Bryant’s analysis of Enrique’s tactics with Spain to see what can be expected of PSG next season.

Following on from yesterday’s article on finding Sergio Busquets’ natural successor playing in Argentina, Adam and Bryant jumped into the podcast studio and spent an hour discussing Federico Redondo further.

Nobody will disagree that Tottenham’s season was disappointing but one small bright spark was their excellence from set pieces, the finger of credit pointing in the direction of GIOVANNI VIO – Karim ES analyses their approach.

Whilst many people spend time scratching their heads at Barcelona’s transfer policy whilst still appearing to be completely broken financially, some of their clever work is slipping under the radar like their move for Mikayil Faye – being snapped up out of the bottom end of the Croatian second division. Jack Manship scouts the player who could be the Catalan’s defensive future.

This week sees the start of the UEFA U21 Championships and we have a full tactical preview magazine of the tournament for you – every single team and how they play, plus their key players explained in detail.
