The Full Season Goalkeeper Training Program. This one-of-a-kind book shows every GOALKEEPER training session, practice and drill of the New England Revolution conducted by assistant/goalkeeper coach, John Murphy, from their 2002 season when they reached the MLS Cup Championship game. The book starts with the usual two-a-day pre-season sessions, including the pre-season trips to Brazil and Portugal. It then continues with the regular season training and concludes with training sessions from the post-season and run up to the championship game. Inside you will find observations of nine months of training sessions accompanied with easy-to-read diagrams of every drill and exercise. Also included is a 12-month calendar showing the various levels and intensity of the training depending on the stage of the season, time of year, etc. As well as the GK sessions, there are many "team" training sessions conducted by Liverpool legend and Rev's Head Coach, Steve Nicol where the goalkeepers are an integral part of the teams' sessions. This is a great opportunity to learn from John Murphy, one of the MLS's most respected goalkeeper coaches. Murphy, one of the league's top young assistants and goalkeeper specialists has been an instrumental force on the Revs' sideline for head coach Steve Nicol. In 2002, he helped develop Revolution goalkeeper Adin Brown into one of the league's most effective goalkeepers during a stretch run that took the Revs to MLS Cup 2002. A native of Quincy, Massachusetts, Murphy helped guide the team's goalkeepers to a 1.53 goals-against average in 2000, the third best mark in Major League Soccer that season. During his three seasons with the team, the Revolution has earned two playoff appearances, the 2002 Eastern Conference Championship, the 2001 US Open Cup Finalists, the 2002 MLS Cup Finalists and qualified for the 2003 CONCACAF Champions Cup. Murphy holds a U.S. Soccer "A" License, an "A" License from the Scottish Football Association, an NSCAA Advanced National Diploma and an English Football Association "A" Goalkeeper Coaching Badge (final assessment pending). He has coached a number of international goalkeepers from Bolivia, Costa Rica, Uruguay and Mexico on an individual level, including U.S. World Cup veterans Juergen Sommer and Brad Friedel.
