How do winners in soccer really win at soccer?

Soccer Dark Arts provides detailed knowledge about crafty, deceitful, and outrageous gamesmanship that will help you and your team win matches.

Within this book are 80 soccer tricks, traps, and tips. These "dark arts" help give ultra-competitive managers and street-smart players a competitive edge that will prevent their opponents from performing at their optimal level.

Masters of the dark arts know how to bend the rules, to deceive, to con, and ultimately to negatively affect their opponents. This book highlights the ugly, unpleasant, and unsporting aspects of the Beautiful Game.

Whether you are a player, coach, match official, fan, commentator, journalist, or club director, your best option is to read this book and understand the dark arts!
