For any coach who wants to improve their one-on-one player evaluation sessions, this film is a classic. Coach Round, having agreed a job description with wide midfield player Stuart Downing, now assesses his performance in a Premier League away game at Birmingham.
Using Prozone statistics and film clips as evidence, Coach Round takes Downing, (an 18 year old who has just made the first team) through every aspect of his performance good and bad. The structure of the analysis is educational and so too is the ‘tough-love’ style Coach Round adopts: the combination of a focused challenge to Stuart to be better within a warm and caring approach to a young player.
Stuart has gone on to play for Liverpool and England.
