Who are the LMA?

The League Managers Association (LMA) is the organisation which collectively represents all Premiership and Football League managers in English football. So its’ membership includes Sir Alex, Wenger and Hodgson. Good company.  It was set up in 1992 during the period when football in England was undergoing major changes, including the split of the Premiership from the rest of the football league, and the introduction of satellite television coverage of football by Sky Television.

The LMA collects and represents the opinions and interests of the managers of all 92 clubs in the above leagues. The LMA lobbies with the expertise of their members on various matters to football’s governing organisations. Representatives of the LMA now sit on various Football Association panels charged with helping to run the game in England.

John Pascarella, Coach, of Sporting Kansas City recently completed the course and wrote the following
“The course information is outstanding. It gives coaches some ideas on how to take your own style of play and then create KPI’s that apply to that given style. The benchmarks/statistics give us an idea of what to shoot for in relation to high level teams.
It has created some thought and ideas about what we want to do here in KC with the help of our IT/analysis people and the first step is generating some league-wide statistics to use as our benchmarks”

“Excellent material, valuable and relevant”

Gordon Hill,Director of Coaching,United FC, McKinney, Texas, USA and former player for Manchester United FC and England

“I would just like to say thank you, I thought the course was very informative and helped me in understanding more about how important Performance Analysis is. and what roles it plays in the modern game. I liked the speakers and got a feel of who played the game and who did not, but that did not matter as they all contributed to making it worth while, I got a lot out of it and found that giving objective feedback to a player who is trying to improve his performance feels good. and will continue to develop.”

Paul Brush, former Assistant Manager at Southend FC and Lincoln City FC

I had not had much access to “Prozone stats” so it was somewhat overpowering at first to see the amount of analysis readily available from the links.I had not known how easily accessible detailed information was.

The course has enabled me to digest new detailed information in layers and comfortably except relevant useful input from people who are not professional football managers and coaches. It has changed some of my thinking and made me look differently at certain match situations -sometimes moving back to the originality of a move /goal and sometimes to the consequences of incompleteness.

I am very glad to have completed this course. To me I see now that evaluating performance with clear relevant reliable statistical evidence will help me prioritize my planning and training so to enable my team and the individuals involved -including myself- to improve and exceed our agreed set targets
