Summary

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?

This audiobook 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 audiobook will explain what soccer analytics are and how they work in a game.

It will analyze 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 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.

Here's what's included in this audiobook:

  • How analytics are used in soccer
  • Team-formation analytics
  • Attacking set-play analytics
  • Defensive set-play analytics
  • Player-performance analytics
  • Player-injury analytics
  • Player-combination analytics

Free on Spotify

You can find this on Spotify free. As for the content, the book describes where analytics can be applied and provides anecdotes for such. It doesn’t dive too much into execution of analytics, which is closer to what I was looking for.

just OK

It was fine. nothing revolutionary. just a book by a guy. there were no real insights, just a book saying "hey, analytics are important in soccer, and here's a list of stats people use sometimes."

Great for pre-tryout

A great short 1 hour listen to think about what ypu should be looking at when evaluating players and team during season, off-season, and before tryout, signing, recruiting.

Five stars!~

The content of this book is very informative and good. However, soccer needs demonstration and pictures. This book lacks pictures. Personally, I do not understand the theory behind reading a book about soccer when you can just watch it online! I guess it's to strengthen your reading skills. Anyways, this book would be great for those who love to read about soccer.

Ways of soccer!

I am not a fan of soccer but with the system they use to win a game is a very interesting one. Hope the book can give more information about it.

Great for all knowledge levels!

It really discusses the factors that can affect sports performance, including psychological factors which are never typically addressed. Definitely worth the money! It comes with the datasets that are discussed in each of the sports chapters.

Helpful Listen!

I learned a lot from this one. I've always been a big believer in analytics but never saw it used for soccer until now. Pleased I went ahead and checked this one out. Lots of great takeaways. Nice work!
