Two senior members of Town’s football analysis department joined the HTTV Preview Show

- HTTV Preview Show ahead of Bristol City
- Available for free on both YouTube and Spotify
- Focus on Town’s football analysis department

Head of Analysis and Innovation James Beck and Lead First Team Performance Analyst Dan Payne are the latest guests on the HTTV Preview Show!

Joining host Raj Bains, both are senior members of the Club’s internal analysis department, one of many areas of our footballing operation that is designed to assist and enhance the work being done by our First Team coaching and playing staff.

Discussing in detail their day-to-day roles and responsibilities, James and Dan allow us an insight into what an analysis team at a football club really do – how they look at our own side and patterns of play, evaluating the opposition and the hours that go into that work and where their expertise are of most use to our coaching staff and players, with him they often work with one-on-one.

A fascinating watch or listen for all football fans – but Town supporters especially – analysis is a rarely discussed feature of modern football and football clubs, so this discussion opens the door in to a world that very rarely has a light shone on it.

With a huge amount of experience behind them within the game, both James and Dan have worked at Town for a number of years, but have also been within other environments outside of the Club which allows them to give a fuller view of what analysis teams are likely to do across the board. If you’ve ever wondered how Town prepare for upcoming matches or what work is happening during a match, at half-time and once the full-time whistle blows, this episode is a must watch!
