Football Manager Guide: Data Analysts & Sport Scientists


The release of Football Manager 2017 (FM17) introduced a few additional staff roles. Data Analysts and Sport Scientists. It has not been too clear on exactly how these members of staff would help you as a manager, but I have been digging around to try and find out some information on Data Analysts and Sport Scientists.

So lets get started.

What does a Sport Scientist do on football manager?

Many of the moderators on the official Sigames Football Manager forum have said that the Sport Scientist "... help stop the frequency of certain types of injuries and can help with players recovery.".

Making sure your players can return to full fitness after games will be key if you want to keep a structured team. It will be important to make sure that you are not training your players to hard and also making sure that you do rotate certain players. Having a Sport Scientist around to make sure your players are match ready is a nice thing to have, although this staff role is not likely to be essential.

Many people have asked the question: What attributes are key for a Sport Scientist on Football Manager?

Again, I have searched around for an answer to this question.

The answer is simple. The fitness attribute is the only attribute you need to pay attention to for the Sports Scientist on Football Manager.

Lets move on to the Data Analysts.

What does a Data Analyst do on Football Manager?

The Data Analyst provides you with a pre and post match news item that contains analysis info. You will be able to have access to things such as heat maps, passing analysis, and mistakes. It can often be difficult, especially for new players, so see where your team needs to improve or where you are making mistakes. Having a data analyst providing different sorts of information should be helpful for some people.

On Football Manager 2017 it has been reported that there are no specific attributes that are important for this staff role and that reports do not vary.

If you do hire a data analyst for your club, I would recommend you just find someone with very low wages.
