Re the discussion about why Clarke may need to produce a report, I'm ambivalent. Is it a standard performance review (which should perhaps be requested by Ayers anyway) or is it a bit more. Is it for an in-depth report on the coaching, tactics, fitness and other data collated each week and certainly after a game - and the subsequent decisions made following such analysis. If so who is going to read and evaluate it, and then what?
The lads are right to wonder why it came out recently, I wish I could dismiss it like them, I'm a bit uncomfortable about what its all about.
edit - in other words, would they determine if the data is of sufficient quality in the modern game and if so is it being used appropriately by the manager and coaches - or am I being paranoid and too trendy?
