The Football Association Advanced Coaching Licence UEFA A Coaching Award Course Match Analysis
How to Use Analysis Effectively It is of little value to collect data and then decide what to do with it. It is, therefore, important to decide what to analyse and why before beginning to collect facts and figures. The following sequence is, therefore, recommended: Objectives: Agree - with the player(s) - which are the key performance objectives.
How to Use Analysis Effectively Outcome: Agree - with the player(s) - a measurable performance outcome to reflect progress towards the achievement of the objective(s). Measurement: Establish analytical tools and processes to measure the performance outcome. The players must be comfortable that this process is objective, valid and reliable. At this level single columns requiring a notation ot tally are recommended.
Interpretation - What to do with the Data? Total the scores and display them on one sheet Review your teams data against: -the opponents data -previous performances -realistic objectives Consider the strengths and weaknesses of your teams performance with reference to the data collected.
Providing Feedback - What to Tell Whom? WHAT DO YOU REQUIRE?
Proposed Match Analysis Format The following performance indicators are the ones most commonly used by FA Premier League and the Football League clubs to analyse the performance of their players and the opposition.
Proposed Match Analysis Format 2. Re-gaining Possession of the Ball in the Attacking Third When the attacking team regains possession of the ball in the attacking third of play or through the award of a set play. 1. Entries in the Attacking Third Option A When the ball is placed by the attacking team into the attacking third and they retain possession - (even if only for one touch, e.g. A flicked header) the attacking team are in a position to shoot, pass, dribble or cross. Or When the attacking team gain a set play in the attacking third.
Making Attacks Count Achieving Effective Crosses Effective crosses are those released and executed correctly to arrive in the goalmouth creating the opportunity for an attempt at goal. Dribbling / Turning Attempts Record the number of successful and unsuccessful dribbling and turning attempts in the attacking third and middle thirds. It is often successful dribbling and turning in the middle third that leads to strikes at goal. An unsuccessful attempt when the defender dispossess the player and possession changes to the defending team. Any other response - beating the opponent, creating space for a shot, pass or cross, gaining a set play, possession changing to another member of the attacking team - is deemed to be a success. Achieving Set Play in the Attacking Third Throw-ins, corners, free-kicks and penalties for the attacking team.
Making Attacks Count Strikes at Goal but Off Target Both shots and headers but not blocked shots. Blocked shots are those within 1 metre of the striking player. Strikes On Target Strikes on target whenever a goal is scored or the goalkeeper (or defender) has to make a save. Does not include strikes that hit the post or the crossbar. Goals Self evident!
What Does the Data Tell Us? It should, of course, be an objective to outscore the opposition in all columns but here are some guidelines to analysing the data: Entries Into the Attacking Third If your team has been outscored in this category your team will have to increase the number of quality entries into the attacking third by improving the quality of a combination of the following Long forward passes to the back of the defence Forward runs without the ball Forward passes to feet with support Receiving and turning with the ball Forward runs with the ball
What Does the Data Tell Us? Making Attacking Count If your team has outscored your opponents with regard to entries in the attacking third but have been outscored by them in: A) quality crosses B) achieving set plays C)strikes at goal D) dribbling and turning attempts Therefore, it is likely that whilst the number of entries into the attacking third is high, the quality poor. Greater emphasis is therefore required on the aspects outlined in 5.1, together with increased pressure to regain possession of the ball.
What Does the Data Tell Us? If your team has outscored your opponents with regard to entries into the attacking third and failed to achieve some but not all, then attention is required in the weak areas. If your team consistently outscores the opponents with regard to entries but loses at strikes at goal, it is likely that the teams attitude to shooting that needs attention. If, however, your team consistently outscores the opponents with regard to strikes at goal but strikes on target the techniques associated with finishing (crossing, heading and shooting) needs attention. Regaining Possession If your team has outscored the opponents in entries to the attacking third and not in regaining possession then attention to winning the ball back in the attacking third is required.
Selection & Scouting As outlined in the introduction, analysis can be used to substantiate the subjective opinions of the coach. This part of the module will reflect on current practice in operation, and discuss how current evaluation forms used by clubs may be improved.
MATCH ANALYSIS WHAT AREAS DO YOU WANT YOUR INFORMATION TO COVER. EG; TEAM etc. DESIGN YOUR OWN FORM/ METHOD OF RECORDING THE DATA YOU REQUIRE.
