So ahead of the 2021-22 Bundesliga season, we take a look at what Gerardo Seoane might bring to Bayer Leverkusen.

In many ways, Gerardo Seoane and Bayer Leverkusen appear to be a perfect match. With ideals of long passing, aggressive pressing, and high-tempo attacking play, they definitely would have swiped right on each other. The Swiss manager may be a bit inexperienced at the very, very top level. But then again, that can also be said of this current crop of Bayer Leverkusen players, who really just need a manager to galvanize them back into the UEFA Champions League. Gerardo Seoane could easily be that man, and we can’t wait to see him take over at Bayer Leverkusen next season.

The difference between seeing and understanding in analysis

When it comes to analysis, it’s no secret that the goal is to think on a deeper level, scrutinizing over the finer minutia beyond what you see at first glance. But it’s also no secret that this skill takes dedicated time and energy to learn. A lack of deep tactical understanding about the game often comes at a cost to coaches and amateur analysts. They are adequately able to perceive events on a football pitch, but they may be unsure of how to change what they are seeing for the better, or even fully comprehend what they are seeing to the level required. Coaches in my Mentorship Program often ask me – “How do you go from seeing to understanding?” Well that, my friends, is what we’re after today. In this series of notes, I’m going to give you a series of images and videos, where you can go from seeing, to understanding. If you’ve been doing analysis for years, no worries, this will still be an excellent way for you to practice and refine your skills.

Cucurella is one of the most versatile players on the planet, making him an ideal candidate to be City’s next rising star.

UEFA Euro U19 Stars: Yusuf Demir – Player Analysis

A rollercoaster of a year for Yusuf Demir can end with his head held high after a tournament full of pride with Austria’s Under-19’s. Not reaching the semi-finals will feel like a major disappointment for Das Team, but the Wien local boy looks to have found the reinvigorating form that earned him a move to Barcelona at the start of last season. Things never quite panned out for Demir at Barca, and his contract was terminated after just six months. Since returning to Rapid, his performances have been up and down, but his evident technical quality still brings promise for what could become of the 19-year-old in the future. This Euros tournament has been all about regaining the confidence that sent Yusuf Demir to Camp Nou in the first place, and many top European sides will now be on red alert for his signature. Here is our analysis of Demir at this summer’s U19 European Championship.
