Yesterday we talked to you about the importance of observing and writing down the important aspects that happened in a soccer match in relation to the opponent and we gave special importance to working on those aspects first in order to improve your team And the importance you gave to the observation of the opponent to the detriment of getting more value from your players and game system.
And today we want to focus more on this aspect.
If the time invested in analyzing and working on the opponent's aspects is more than working on your own, surely you are incurring something that is capital.
Your opponent plays against your team on 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 great importance to working on aspects to counteract it.
Have you ever stopped to think what your team's flaws could minimize if you dedicated those hours you've spent analyzing the opponent to drawing 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 someone else's eye than in your own.
Well, let's think about it because it is vitally important.
Then…..Shouldn't we analyze the opposite? ….Of course we must, but without losing sight of improving our own team, it is a matter of realism and productivity of working hours.
I give an example if we spend 10 hours a week watching the opponent's game, recording it, viewing the images for the second time, drawing conclusions and presenting them audiovisually to your players and we do that aspect every week.
You will have dedicated if a league has 38 days, an average of 380 hours just to see virtues and defects 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 matter 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 opponent, but always giving a much higher priority to doing those functions in your team, because that way their performance will multiply week after week.
All the best.
