For every talented footballer…
There is an agent telling stories about the player’s attributes and future potential.
There are 10 scouts in the stadium also watching on, scribbling down notes.
There are 150 scouts sat at the training ground trawling through reports via a database.
There are 500 sporting directors and technical analysts watching video and making clips.
The world is now flat. Footage is accessible online. Data has become ubiquitous.
So now the question becomes: what are we doing differently ahead of the January window to give us a competitive edge in the transfer market?
Everything else is just the same.
