How to present your video analysis?
The actual analysis and what to do after?
Now that we’ve put everything into place to analyze the match, we have the right software and we decided what the aim of the analysis is. We can actually analyze the match. This needs to be done in high focus. We therefore recommend to analyze one half at the time, take a break for 10-20 minutes away from the screen. This will result in you being able to keep your focus better and thus raise the quality of the analysis.
At Tactalyse we always analyze matches at two screens. This is because we open the match on one screen and the coding panel on the other. Because you now the aim of the analysis you can also open the right coding panel, for example team analysis or individual player analysis.
The actual analysis
Analyzing video footage of a football match is nothing more than watching the video. If you also want to show the results of the analysis to someone else, than you have to cut out clips. You can decide yourself how long you want the clip to be and if you want to draw in the clips to highlight certain aspects.
The good thing about analysis afterwards is that you can watch a clip several times. So you can really go in depth about what went wrong. This is more difficult when watching someone live. So if you’re unsure, just rewind and watch the situation again.
Another thing you can consider doing is adding a judgement score to the clips you cut out. You can come up with your own system or for example use a simple scoring system with + and -.
You’ve analyzed the match and now what?
After analyzing there’s video data, as a video analyst it’s your job to present this in the best possible way for the receiver of the analysis. So whether this is the head coach, a player or some other staff member. Keep in mind how you’re going to present your video data.
You might want to present your video analysis in a different way to a head coach, then how you would to a player or a group of players. So again it’s important to keep in mind the aim of the analysis.
