Player data analysis has existed for 40 years. We are so fucking wet behind the ears at this club.

Lurker - This is AFCW. We'll have Directors for everything. Either you already know this, or you haven't been paying attention.

I've applied for the DoTD post. Dirctor of Tea Drinking.
pete no we won't need all those - we're talking about a one man role working for the manager, Ainsworth has people doing it for him and oddly it's worked for them

silk the data analyst preferred to be the warm up man for the "finishers" so be interesting to see if we need him for analysis work

So, we'll need a Director of Data, plus a DoD Assistant/Analyst/Dogs Body. Why not just leave it to JJ?

Nick, Working - there are third party firms, like StatBomb, who can do the analysis for you. Say you want a target man they can supply suitable candidates for your budget etc. They can also provide team analysis. I do not know their rates or if we can do it cheaper or better but it would be something to investigate. What is the best value? Our own team, a third party or none.

If we are going to use data analysis for player recruitment (and after last season's debacle I remain to be convinced of its value), I think that we need to do it properly, not try to repurpose a system which was really intended for spread betting, whether we can afford a proper system is another question but I think that we either do it properly or not at all.

Data analysis is the present (and also the future) of football. Of course we need to ensure we don't do it half-arsed. It is used as much as to understand your team as your opponents and is for more than player recruitment. I wonder as JJ is a young man with more modern experience of the game whether he will embrace it more.

It is of course just another weapon alongside scouting and coaching and we do not want to get left behind.
Barnsley look like they’re gonna snaffle Cheltenham’s manager off them shortly. Don’t particularly care either way but it has led me to a fact-bomb which I’ll put in the moral but only reason if you’re happy to have your MIND BLOWN.

Michael Duff, apparent future Barnsley manager, is believed to the be the only footballer to play in each of the top eight tiers of English football in ascending order.
Dazzer - deffo saw Tuvey doing it at one of the Bowen home games - but could have been someone else at his other home games.

would make sense to keep Tuvey at first team just because we've always been a bit short on coaches so having a 3rd works. Whether or not the data analyst and the restarts coach will stick around is another thing.

Chris McConnell took the subs through the HT drills when MR went - or was that another fishing trip

First change Bowen made was putting Tuvey in charge of warming up subs at HT, so real management team could talk to team in changing room.

Hash - in every interview I've seen and heard with Jackson so far he's made a point of saying he wants to bring in some older heads to help the youngsters out so I wouldn't worry unduly on that score

Didn't Bowen say he listened to some of the left backroom team too much when he arrived.that an alarm bell and a move back to youth coaching for some ,surely

So that's the first transfer rumour of the summer! Never heard of him, he might be good, he might be alright, he might be shit.

I don’t want to see Tuvey slung under the bus. It was an idiotic decision made by Robinson to pull him into the roll with zero managerial, coaching or playing experience around senior football - not even a transition from U21/23s etc. But he’s young, will of learnt a fuck load from what went down and after the year he has had will become and asset to the academy again and players transition to senior football. Good luck to him.

It winks at me.
one potential nuance to that is that he's talking about what the positions are now - not necessarily what they were under MR. Some things definitely changed under MB (e.g. assistant) and we don't know what else he'd already made changes to in the background. (Did laugh at his comment about they seemed excited - shows some self humour. Also I wonder if Bayes ever seems anything less than excited - guy just seems to love his job).
