My Work

I have always watched a lot of football matches. I do not particularly watch one league all the time. I skip around to see how other teams in other leagues (and their players) are performing. I am a big fan of the English Premier League, the German Bundesliga and Major League Soccer (MLS). Most of the time, however, the Barclays Premier League (BPL) has been the easiest and most accessible to watch.

Throughout the rest of this site, you will be able to view some of the other work that I have been doing. I am very interested in working with video analysis while using data to complement the results of games, opposition, and player analysis. At this moment in time, I do not possess access to video analysis software such as SportsCode or Dartfish. I do however, have experience of using SportsCode and Dartfish from my Internship days at UCD Rugby Club, through my MSc in Sports Performance and most recently when working for MLS side Houston Dynamo.

Below is a quick example of a Dashboard that I produced to complement the video footage (not included for obvious reasons).

In the following tabs (and below) you are able to view a few attached samples of what my current work revolves around. For example, below you will find a simple analysis of how many points on average a team needs to finish in a certain spot (1st, 4th and 17th).

Underneath that, I have examined the teams to have scored the lowest goals after 25 PL games and how they performed till the end of the season. Lastly, below these two documents, you will find a collection of visual shot analysis of a number of different games throughout various competitions.
