Of The Game
‘There is enormous complexity in the sport of football for the
coach to comprehend. The complexity of different sports depends
on such factors as the size of the teams, the roles of each
individual, the level of contact allowed, the size of the pitch and
the continuous nature of the game.
Football demands complete versatility of all its players. It is
unpredicatble, with endless unique situations and constant
change between attack and defense. Talk about complexity! ’
Rinus Michels
Some general trends from modern football……
A typical game at UEFA Champions League Level Contains.....
58 minutes of playing time
870 Passes
16 crosses
24 Shots
156 Headers
60 Tackles
Over 200 interceptions
100 - 120 'Attacking Situations'
2.5 Goals Per Game
An average player possession of the ball lasting 2 touches and 1.1 seconds
……over a 60 game season! (Average over the last 4 seasons)

Why Use Performance Analysis?
How Do You Use Performance Analysis?
1.Permanent Record Of Performance – Reviewed, Library, Compiled
2. Provides Information That Could Have Been Missed Or Forgotten
3. Can Be Used To Concentrate On Any Aspect Of Team or Player Performance
4. Playback Opportunities – Pause, Slow-Motion, Replay, Technique Analysis
5. Can Be Used In Real-Time or Half-Time Settings For Immediate Feedback
6. Can Be A Quick & Efficient Feedback Process (Critical Events, Selected Highlights)
7. Intuitive & Appealing Medium For Feedback & Meetings
8. Can Provide Individual Resources For Players
9. Desirable Models Of performance Can Be Created
10. Can Be Transferred To Computers For Enhanced Analysis & Feedback
A. Graphics

Why Use Performance Analysis?

but first……..

What Analysis Strategies Could You Use?
‘In preparing for the game, my staff and I started as usual by watching
as many of our opponents games on video. I knew everything about
Monaco and I wanted my players to know everything as well. In
addition to the general video meetings we had on how the opposition
played as a team, we gave each individual player a DVD on the
collective and individual actions of their direct opponent to study.
Afterwards we had a group discussion on the information gleaned. In
this way we got to know Monaco and I believe the French team held no
secrets for us’
Jose Mourinho, prior to the 2004 UCL Final
‘Ten minutes of highlights and lowlights for each youth player
are left on the video server after every game. The players can
log on at home, on the way to the club or when they are here.
Some of the players are real students, they want to learn and
analyse themselves all the time’
AZ Alkmar
What Analysis Strategies Could You Use?
Half Time Video Feedback
Statistics During the Game
Post Match Video Highlights
Video recording of Match or Training
Post Match Team Statistical analysis
Pre Match Video Montage To Music
Player - Led Analysis and Feedback
Physical Workrate Profiles
Models of Performance

Units/ Players / Team
Post Match Individual Player Statistical Analyse
Profile of Potential recruits
Profile of Future Opponents
Profile of Current Players
‘Our policy is to try and make
every player better every day’
Jurgen Klinsmann
‘The objective of every coach is to exploit
the full potential of the squad and develop
the team potential as much as possible ’
Marcello Lippi

1. A Scouting department want to develop a positional model for each position so that they can evaluate potential recruits.
2. A junior team coach wants to give the players more responsibility for feedback of performance and decides to use video sessions.
3. A head coach wants to deliver half time information to the players in order to improve the communication process.
4. A Coach Educator wants to use match analysis to identify the current demands of the game.
5. An international team coach wants the team units to be informed about their opposition units prior to performance.
6. A sports psychologist wants to utilize analysis to help work with the team, players and coaches on the concept of momentum.

After analysing over 30,000 English Premier League (EPL) shots over the last 3 seasons I was able to put a number on the average amount of shots it takes to score a goal from various positions on the pitch.
I believe in simplicity. The graphic below shows the results of my study. This is how many shots it takes to score from these areas of the pitch in the EPL:
My study shows the numbers have been almost exactly the same in each of the last three seasons in each of these five areas:
◾Direct Free Kicks
◾Inside Box Central
◾Inside Box Wide
◾Outside Box Open Play

The sheer consistency of the model gives me the confidence to state that the benefit of having the specific x,y data so coveted would be outweighed by the loss in trying to practically apply it within the game itself, or inform the fans watching.
