Sheffield Wednesday pair Lee Bullen and Dominic Iorfa offer insight into online analysis methods as Owls look towards a return to football
and live on Freeview channel 276
The club’s sports science team, led by the highly regarded Tony Strudwick, have created bespoke training programmes for the squad to adhere to.
And one aspect that has featured more heavily than normal has been analysis, with players and staff alike instructed to look at their own performances and matches involving upcoming opponents.
Players have been given access to the ‘Wyscout’ football analysis programme. It’s software players some players have used more than others in the past, with Jacob Murphy one who watches clips of the likes of Raheem Sterling and Sadio Mane in an attempt to drive his game forward.
Owls defender Dominic Iorfa is another: “I watch my games back over the course of the season to see where I can get better,” he told Yorkshire Live. “Don't get me wrong, I don't do it every day”
“But having this time at home has allowed me to watch a lot of my old games back. You learn things all the time and you think 'what if I had done this or what if I had done that?'”
And it’s not just for players. Wednesday assistant boss Lee Bullen has been using the time to fine-tune certain points of the season ahead as well as looking back.
Speaking to The Star he said: “Dom's been outstanding, he's been one of our best players all season but you can see he's had a rough game here and there. Kadeem Harris started the season magnificently well, but he's gone off the boil a little bit. He'd admit that.
“But saying that, we've got experienced players that have gone through hard times as well. It’s all part of it.
“Part of the programme has been looking at certain technical points of view. We’ve all got access to Wyscout at home and that’s for us as well. I’ve been watching Forest, watching Bristol, watching West Brom. We all keep our eyes in and make sure we’re not missing things and the players do too.”
