In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I speak with Michael Watts who is Head of Performance at Aston Villa FC. I recently heard Michael speak in Seattle at the Seattle Sounders conference and was very impressed with is openness and honesty which is why I had to get him on the podcast. Michael and I also have mutual friend in Dean Riddle and if Dean speaks highly of someone, I definitely listen! At the Sounder conference, I think Michael caused a bit of a stir with how it actually is working in the Premier League which I respect massively. No fluff or jazzing up. Michael is a switched on guy and has some other very exciting projects that we discuss in this episode.
In this episode you will learn –
- Who is Michael Watts and how did he get to where he is today
- Developing your own coaching philosophy
- Using GPS
- Dealing with and presenting useful data
- Off season and pre season training
- Keeping players on the pitch
