05.07.2017   On the road again with ISB-Matchpilot

Not only for players a professional preparation is the key to a successful season, also scouts can be ahead of others with early planning and pre-season scouting. While others still need to study the names of the new players when the season starts, the top scout has already seen them playing during pre-season.
Now in july countless friendlies happen, almost everywhere in the world, from the mountain village in Austria to the big football arenas in the US. Matchpilot informs you about where exactly who is playing against whom, the indispensable helping tool for all who do not want to sit at home waiting but are "Born to scout".
ISB wishes everyone a successful season 2017/2018 and a safe trip!

Auch die Länderspielpause konnte sie nicht stoppen. Werder Bremens U17 schickte den 1. FC Magdeburg mit 5:0 nach Hause und feiert bereits jetzt den Titelgewinn. Mit der makellosen Bilanz von 22 Siegen in bisher 22 Spielen und einem Torverhältnis von 80:10 Toren setzen die Bremer Massstäbe über die Grenzen hinaus. Einzig Borussia Dortmunds U15 kann annähernd mithalten, wäre nicht ihr bisher einziges Remis bereits am ersten Spieltag gewesen. Ansonsten gibt es europaweit auf höchstem Juniorenlevel zwar ein paar "Invincibles", zb. FC København U19, VfL Wolfsburg U19 oder die U17 von Benfica, alle jedoch mit mindestens 3 Unentschieden.  » more

27.02.2015   Development on the road?

With the increasing number of national and international competitions, those players strike who play for multiple teams in various competitions, often weekly changing the team. Especially during the transition period from youth to professional football, many talents get stuck between the teams, which makes continuous training and development difficult.
Isaiah Brown (Chelsea) und Frederick Woodman (Newcastle) are current U19 England internationals. Forward Brown appeared for 5 teams in 7 competitions so far this season, goalkeeper Woodman due to a loan deal even for 6 teams in 10 competitions.
U19 England teammate Dele Alli, midfielder for MK Dons, proves the opposite. Currently in his second season as a first team regular, he signed for Tottenham for next season.
Which way is the better one? Many team changes and travel or regular training and continuous competition appearances?
