Performance Analysis Webinar Brian Prestidge

Last week I hosted the first (of hopefully a series) of webinar’s with Brian Prestidge, Head of Analytical Development at Bolton Wanderers. Bolton are one of the pioneers of analytics thanks mainly to Sam Allardyce and the staff and culture he left behind. It was an absolute please that Brian was the first one up, throughout the event he was open and honest and answered every question that was put to him.

The format of the talk was mainly Q & A – which gave everyone a chance to put their questions to Brian. Here is a link to the full hour long talk but I have picked out some snippets that if you’re in a rush you might enjoy. If you want to keep up with other videos and future events – I recommend you subscribe to the YouTube channel.
