Welcome to Opposition Scouting & Analysis – Using Data Effectively
Olly intro video
For a more fun learning experience throughout the course, we’re going to take on the role of the opposition data analyst for Arsenal as they progress through the rounds of the 2019/2020 F.A. Cup!
We’ll look at the strengths and weaknesses of Bournemouth, Sheffield United, Man City & eventually our opponents in the final – Chelsea.
Throughout the course, we’ll use real data sets from providers such as Stats Bomb, Wyscout & Stats Perform all of whom are regularly used by professional clubs around the world. If you are not familiar with these companies, take some time to familiarize yourself by watching the videos below.
CoachTech has worked hard to build relationships with these well respected companies, meaning we can use real Premier League data sets identical to the ones used by clubs.
Please do not share this data with anybody, and only use it for the purposes of completing this course!
We’re fortunate to use our network of professional scouts, analysts and coaches working in football to help deliver this course. As we work through the modules, we’ll see interviews with them to help us better understand exactly how modern data analysis works in professional football.
