Data Hub in FM22
You now have a central area for data and statistics in Football Manager 2022, which can be accessed from the menu on the left side of your screen. The first screen is your starting point and will give you access to deeper reports for individual players, teams, matches and your opponents.
In the Data Hub your backroom staff will give you tools to review your own performances and advice to improve. A central area in the Data Hub will be the Key Findings widget. Here your backroom staff (most likely your chief data analyst) will highlight certain areas of your team which can either be reviewed or improved.
In the screens we have seen there have been reports like:
- Overall Match Momentum
- Last Matches Passes
- Long Range shots
- Opposition Long Range shots
- Opposition Goals from shots in penalty area
- Last match XG
- Opponnent XG
When clicked on the Key Findings a pop-up will appear displaying more details of the data, including a graphic to increase usability.
New are the 'momentum' reports, which show and reflect the flow of an entire match. This will allow you to spot certain strengths or flaws in your tactic or gameplan.
The Data Hub will also be the place to ask for player and team reports, rather than requesting them from an individual player or club. This will make it easier to use and SI have more space available to improve the details and looks of the reports.
These are some more screenshots from the Data Hub, taken from the Feature Video created by Sports Interactive.
