With Premier League football on hold during the international break, we caught up with Shad Forsythe at London Colney for a special edition of The Breakdown.
Adrian Clarke met the club's head of performance to find out more about the work that is being done to improve athleticism, and also discussed:
- Why physical fitness is essential in the modern game
- Identifying how to improve a player's performance
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott's development
- How data analysis is helping to assess players
Shad also discusses the correlation between sprinting and scoring, and our work in this area can be seen in the number of late goals we score. Test your knowledge of our last-gasp strikes this season in our quiz below.
