The Master Tactician Mobile Pro
Win games and glory or act like a TV pundit
If you’re a football coach of any level, one thing you will discuss is tactics. The strategy you use can make or break a match, so you can either grab a pen and scribble formations on a piece of paper or go all high-tech with an app that allows you to put players in position.
The Master Tactician is that app. You drag players on the pitch and use the drawing tool in the same way football pundits do to illustrate the way the game should unfold. These can then be saved or deleted – it’s easy to scrub everything and go back to the drawing board.
According to the makers, ex-players and current managers including West Ham’s Sam Allardyce have been involved in its making. Whether that input was needed is debatable, given that it’s pretty much a case of putting players on the pitch and sorting out their runs, but it does it all with aplomb.
The small screen of the iPhone and iPod touch makes it a bit fiddly. But it’s perfect for pitch-side pep talks and could so easily turn a game.
Be the Manchester United of your team’s league by honing your match-winning tactics.
