Cybernetics, Cesarean Sections and Soccer’s Most Magnificent Mind

Fans do not sing his name in stadiums, nor do they ask him for autographs in the street.
He was not a player of any great note. He has never managed a club. 
Instead, Frade, 73, is that rarest of things: one of soccer’s most noteworthy theorists.
His great contribution to the sport is tactical periodization, an approach to management that is often characterized — much to his evident frustration — as a coaching style. “It is not a method,” he says, almost as soon as he sits down. “It is a methodology. You have a methodology so that you don’t need methods.” The last word is issued with disdain.To Frade, his approach is a management philosophy, a personal dogma and a belief system rolled into one. It is a way of thinking more than a way of playing, one conceived and crafted in this office, at this university, but that can now claim devotees around the world.
