Yesterday we talked to you about the importance of observing and recording the important aspects that happened in a football match in relation to the opposite and we gave special importance to working first on those aspects in the improvement of your team AND the importance you gave to observation of the opponent to the detriment of getting more value from your players and game system.
And today we want to influence more in this aspect.
If the time invested in analyzing and working on aspects of the opposite is more than working on your own, surely you are incurring something that is capital.
Your opponent plays against your team at the weekend and you don't hear from him again until the second round, that is, 20 weeks later, and it turns out that you have given a great importance in working on aspects to counter it.
Have you stopped to think what your team could minimize its shortcomings if you spent those hours that you have spent analyzing the opposite to draw conclusions from your players and game system?
That is the reality, there is a saying that defines very well what we mean, See before the speck of dust in the other's eye than in your own.
Well, let's think about it because it is vitally important.
So…..Should we not analyze the contrary? … .Of course we should, but without losing the horizon of improving our own team, it is a matter of realism and productivity of working hours.
I give an example if we dedicate 10 hours a week to watch the opponent's game, record it, view the images a second time, draw conclusions and present them to your players in an audiovisual way, and we do that every week.
You will have dedicated if a league has 38 days, an average of 380 hours only to see strengths and weaknesses of your opponents.
What if we spent a large part of those hours analyzing our own players and teams?
Don't you think it would be more profitable?
It is a question of efficiency and you must have it in all the tasks you do in football.
So, here is today's tip.
Observe, analyze and draw conclusions from the contrary, but always giving a much higher priority to doing those functions in your team, because this will multiply their performance week by week.
