The GSN Index

Analyzing players the easy way

SRC

Soccer related characteristics

The basis for the GSN Index is the evaluation and rating of different characteristics (over 130) which are essential for players. 

Every player will be evaluated by several scouts independently, in order to achieve the most possible objectivity.


The assessment includes technical, tactical, mental and physical characteristics which are summarized in a rating between 0 and 100. 

The top score of 100 will, however, not be reached by any player.


The total rating will be calculated with a sophisticated system which weighs positional characteristics.

A central defender requires different capabilities compared to a forward, something which our system will automatically take into consideration.


All assessments of the players which are available in our database are regularly updated through our worldwide scouting network.

Potential

Capability of development

One of the most important factors when buying a player, is the question of how he will develop in the future.

Even today, huge sums are being paid for young players and young talents.


It is, therefore, important to recognize at a very early stage the future potential of a young player in order to engage him under economic conditions.


GSN has developed a system which is based on modified economic and financial algorithms.


Various factors are taken into consideration which influence the development of the player, such as the quality of coaches and soccer education, learning ability and age, just to name a few.


Starting value is 0,00 (=no further development in the future). The scale has a range of 0 - 100. The higher the value the higher the potential.

Performance score

Measuring the performance on the pitch

The performance score is the third of the 4 pillars in the GSN Index. Based on their performance data players receive plus scores for positive actions during the game (goals, assists, penalties saves, complete passes etc.)


For negative actions players receive minus scores (own goals, red cards, incomplete passes etc.)


The value 50 represents an average, balanced performance score.


Other variables like the "Expected goals" method, xGOT, action scores, error rates, expected assists etc. are also included.


Of course, the statistic will take into consideration position related differences. Offensive actions by a defender will be rated differently than that of a forward.

Based on our performance score, it is also possible to tell how well a specific player is able to perform with certain team mates.
