Tactical Talks with Stephen Glass

Footy Talks with Steven Caldwell

27-05-2020 • 1 hr 17 mins

Very few Scottish footballers can say that Kenny Dalglish personally invited them to the EPL, but that’s just what happened to Stephen Glass after a man of the match performance in the League Cup Final landed him a contract with Newcastle FC. In this episode, I sit down with ‘Glassy’ - my old friend and teammate - to talk about his own tactical influences as an elite profesional, and how as a coach he’s now passing on that insight to the next generation of North American footballers.


Episode Notes: Coaching the next generation of players, and breaking down the many factors required to become a top athlete


Glass recalls the commitment of coaches when he was a young player, and how that degree of personal commitment is rare in today’s game.


Glass and Stevie reminisce on the influence of Kenny Dalglish - the finest footballer Scotland ever produced - and Glass breaks down Dalglish’s role in his move to Newcastle FC.


Playing with the Magpies for three injury-hit seasons, Glass describes the attributes that made Alan Shearer such an effective player and prolific goal scorer.


Joining 1st division Watford FC as part of Gian Luca Vialli’s ambitious rebuilding project, Stephen describes being coached in the art of the ‘tactical foul’ and considers why the overall project was not deemed a success.
