An electronic version of the "Player pitch performance" chapter from the 7th CIES Football Observatory Annual Review is now available. To be among the first people to receive a copy of this exclusive chapter, contact us now to pre-order your copy of the full CIES Football Observatory Annual Review.
The "Player pitch Performance" chapter allows interested parties to access essential information prior to the opening of the summer transfer window. It notably includes rankings which highlight the best performing footballers when compared to their team-mates. This data is particularly useful in identifying relatively unknown players as potential future signings.
The CIES Football Observatory Annual Review is a 96-page must-have publication for understanding the logics of success in the five major European leagues. Using a novel "demo-technic" approach, the CIES Football Observatory academic team carefully combine the study of players' demographic profile with their on-pitch performances both at an individual and collective level.
The six chapters that make up this key reference publication cover the following areas: player selection and turnover; age structure and club experience; mobility and contracts; club pitch performance and player pitch performance. An excerpt of the last year report may be downloaded for free from our website.
