Club to appoint recruitment analyst

  • I don’t really know how it works in practise in truth. Let’s say Gaz Room is 20 and is Aston Villa youth system. I assumed how it worked in the old days was that a AV youth coach would think that Room had something but be aware that he probably will not get another AV contract. He has dealt with GA a call and they chat about Room’s skills and character. If GA likes the sound of him , he gets a mate in the Birmingham area to watch a youth game to have a look and if good a more formal scouting visit to a game takes place. If still good they talk to young Gaz or his agent and maybe a deal happens.

    What happens now? (I have no idea what Wyscout is)

    What League 1 clubs don't have an analytics 'department'

    It's one thing having a performance analyst, but I'm not sure that many have a recruitment analyst. I'd guess about half, but I haven't looked through every one. Most will have a 'head of recruitment', but that's not necessarily as data-focused as this role. Even some Premier League clubs (probably most notably Man United) are still lagging behind on the data/analytics front - just because you have that within your structure doesn't mean you're doing it well (hopefully we will).

  • Like @glasshalffull and doubtless many others I am very pleased that you are back posting regularly on the Gasroom @ReturnToSenda. Can always depend on you to provide interesting comments and insights. You really do have your finger on the pulse.

    That's all very well but what happens if your manager also has a plan B?

    I fully expect we’ll be something like the Harlem globetrotters of league one with opposition players standing about bemused after the switch to plan B goes out

  • Hopefully the players are intelligent enough to be able to adjust to a plan B as well. If they are super intelligent then that may even stretch to a plan C 😀.

  • Well I suppose "First team recruitment analyst" certainly sounds more impressive than "scout".

  • Clough and Taylor were doing 'moneyball' in the 70s, it just didn't have a name then.

    Excellent news we are investing in this.
