How is Tableau improving player performance?
As part of our performance analysis strategy, we rely on Tableau to analyse Under-18 Everton Academy players compared to our opposition, studying measures like possession, completed passes, pass accuracy, shots on target - in short, everything. We can monitor this at a team level or drill down into individuals, for example comparing forward passes player X made in the final third, versus player Y.
From there, we can look at why that’s the case, and define individual plans and team tactics ahead of our next match. Because Tableau allows such intuitive, interactive analysis, the performance analysts and coaches can share these insights with players for post-match analysis and individual feedback with ease. Tableau is highly adaptable and flexible, meaning we’re confident our system can handle any future demands that professional football might throw at us.
