Based on Dutch Totaal Voetbal, Zdeněk Zeman has described the concept of his 4𣛩 system as "geometry", and his teams also known for approaching a football philosophy clearly based on lively, quick, attacking play, the offside, and zonal marking. His teams are well known for their fast, spectacular, aggressive, and offensive style of play, as well as their ability to score many goals, but also for the corresponding tendency to concede them.

A respected and experienced manager, his coaching techniques, especially in regards to athletic preparation, fitness, and training (a field for which he has a particular interest), are also proverbial for their effort and diligence. Notable features of his system are the use of a high defensive line, the offside trap, high pressing, and zonal marking, as well as short first touch passes and one-twos played on the ground, although the deep-lying playmaker in his formation must also be competent at providing long passes and switching the play. The wingers in his system are set to move inside the channels, and usually play a free creative role. All of these elements combined made Zeman's tactics solid, spectacular and extremely versatile: they are effective against top teams as well as weaker ones.
