Episode 40 - A Closer Look into "Scanning"

We’re back to what we do best this week, exploring a footballing concept that is deserving of a deeper dive. This week’s topic concerns the concept of scanning in football, and how useful it can be in a player’s actions on and off the ball. We chat about all things from scan timing to scan frequency, and look into some of the leading research in this field. The evolution of technology now means that such work into scanning is reaching a new level, and exciting developments are ahead. Let us know your thoughts, we always enjoy hearing from you!
