Do you love soccer and want to get better in a systematic manner? Or have you ever wondered how top level coaches and players think about the game at the top level?
This book is your answer.
Analytics are playing an increasing role in the world of soccer. The days of gut instinct representing the main tactic in a game are passing, and a more calculated approach is being applied to coaching and playing.
This has the advantage of providing a secure base on which coaches and players can apply their bits of skill, their touches of magic that can turn a game. This book will explain what soccer analytics are, and how they work in a game.
It will analyse different parts of play during a game and provide ideas and details around how analytics can improve a team during various passages of play. It will show that it is possible to carry out analytics without recourse to expensive software and the kind of backroom team that is only possible in the higher levels of the professional game.

    Performance Analytics

    Here, the tool helps players and coaches analyze their performance during matches. It is based on hard data, rather than impressions. For example, the number of touches, the number of successful short passes, successful long passes; the accuracy of shots on goal with the left foot, right foot, under pressure and so forth.
  • Daniel M. has quoted3 years ago
    the chances of a goal are pretty remote. In fact, only one in two hundred goals in professional football results from a corner.
  • Daniel M. has quoted3 years ago
    If they play a high pressing game then better first touch and control is required from every player, since there will be constant pressure, rather than just in the final third as would be the case with a side that stands off.
