INNOVATION IN ANALYSIS: NEVER STANDING STILL
FEATURE / MICHAEL COOPER
Our initial foray in to performance analysis (PA) at the FMPA discussed the growing importance of the discipline in the modern-day game (see issue 35). In a relatively short period of time, the discipline has grown to become widespread at all levels of the game, and though still largely seen as the new kid on the block, especially when compared to more conventional sciences such as strength and conditioning or nutrition, PA’s importance continues to evolve. Key to that evolution is the innovative use and development of emerging technologies. In this two-part series, Michael Cooper, performance analyst at Derby County, discusses some of those technologies, charting a swift rise for an innovative discipline.
