    Default New performance analyst at Forest

    http://hereisthecity.com/en-gb/2015/...d-omar-yabrou/

    The "richest scout in the world" has been appointed as football analyst. Poached from Barnet.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/foo...promotion.html

    Is Fawaz trying to rob his piggy bank or is this Fawaz continuing to learn about how we bring in players and develop on a smaller budget. Leon Hunter although rarely mentioned was presumably brought in for that purpose too.

    Very interesting... More positive moves forward. Looks like he fancy's himself as a manager in future... AVB has a similar background when it comes to football.

    I hope all these people we are bringing in are permanent staff, and not just manager associates to be gone in a few months. Permanent staff are needed.

    Hunter is head of recruitment , this guy does scouting & analyzing the oppositions from what has been said in the article - very different roles. The guy knew DF back at Palace , presumably both at the time were learning their crafts. Both men by now are more experienced and better for it.

    As long as the guy is not shebby singh who professed to be some sort of expert tv performance analyst who turned out to be an utter flop and clueless , he should be fine.

    Previously worked with Dougie, which I think Hunter had as well.

    Not the sort of appointment we'll stand for.

    We demand our scouts are dodgy macintosh wearing chain smokers, brought up in overcrowded terraced houses.

    Another positive appointment after Hunter.

    Does anyone remember that 'Doctor' who used to do YouTube analysis of our perfomances when Fawaz had just taken over.

    Imagine a middle-eastern crackpot in glasses doing a Gary Neville impersonation on Monday Night Football of Radoslaw Majewski's movement against Bristol City. Remarkable.

    Fair play, another ambitious self starter on the backroom staff. Sensible move.

    We need to mirror this appetite on the pitch. Mills to reinforce & lead the back line is a decent start.

    Now can we have a specialist left back & a central midfielder to spearhead our attacking threat

    It's the defensive midfielder we need more. Without the anchor , both attack and defence will suffer.

    Top stuff. Good reaction to Dougie's loan signings.

    A few more articles about Omar.

    http://sport360.com/article/european...-omar-yabroudi

    http://www.thenational.ae/sport/foot...glish-football

    What Omar will be doing ...
    What are your day-to-day duties at Barnet?

    My primary role is performance analysis, which is divided into two sectors. So, the first sector would be post-match analysis. Say we were playing Bristol Rovers, once we had played them I would then dissect certain aspects of the games. We would sit down first thing on Tuesday morning at 8 o’clock, and we would go through this together. Obviously, the manager would make notes and digest some of the stuff that was seen, and translate it onto the training pitch. Then on the Thursday, it would be opposition analysis. So, that’s basically studying our opposition on the coming Saturday. My job would be to identify their strengths and weaknesses, any trends on their goals scored, goals conceded, set pieces.

    Sounds like something Stuart Pearce could have done with...

    I'm amazed that no-one has picked up on the quote from Martin "Cheeky C*nt" Allen from the first article:-

    I won't be supporting Barnet in any of their 'underdog' cup games after a comment like that.

    Pearce was trying to do that. He is very big on stats etc.
    Basically modern day football is all Soccernomics, so bringing someone like this in is a very smart move

    To be honest though mate, Professor Stephen Hawking and his motorised chair would be a better option at Left Back than Danny Fox.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Football is a game of percentages nowadays. Additions like this are huge, sports science is the big thing now.

    Having thought about it some more, it may be absolute genius on Dougie's part, bringing in someone who can fluently explain football in Arabic to Fawaz, and someone who is socially on a similar level to Fawaz due to family wealth, even though he will still have to refer to Fawaz as 'Uncle' and show him respect.

    Jokes aside, this looks a good appointment. Also, does this mean we aren't stuck in the 90's anymore?

    I'm probably a bit old fashioned - less video analysis and more passing the ball to someone in the same colour shirt - but if this works wonders then good move.
