Without a doubt this coach knows what he is talking about BUT ... Overall this was an OK overview of this coach's strategy but not anywhere close to what one would need to try and adopt it.. Not at the level of detail I thought it would be for a Novice Coach - "recovery Step" (I think I know what he means but do I?) "Defend in 2" (no real idea - 2 steps, 2 people?) are a few examples. He flies at certain points and is impossible to get any detail especially because often with the videos - the snapshot way they are captured it is hard to even follow the ball - plus you have to replay it a few ties to even tell who his players are (ball is hard to see). Along those lines - dont keep naming your players names - maybe numbers would be better but often they would be hard to see as well. Coach is trying to give the players credit I think but this is instructional video not a branding video for them and the team. Several times he refers to a previous video - IMHO this is/should be a self contained video - not one that refers to something I should buy in addition and need to search for (and purchase)
