Bridging the gap between competition demands & physical capabilities in footballers with Ben Rosenblatt (Physical Performance Coach at The FA) & Martin Evans (Physical Performance Coach at The FA)
Pacey Performance Podcast
In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Physical Performance Coaches at the Football Association, Ben Rosenblatt and Martin Evans. This is the final part of the unofficial FA three-part series. Two weeks ago we had Bryce Cavanagh and last week we welcomed Pete Tierney and Chris Rosimus to the Pacey Performance Podcast. This episode was absolutely superb and gave us an incredible insight into the inner workings of the Football Association. These guys have worked across various different environments and pull on all of that experience to give nearly 90 minutes of gold! In this episode, we discussed... Who are Ben Rosenblatt and Martin Evans (background, experience and current roles)? What were your initial observations when walking into international football? Does a gap exist between the demand of competition and the capability of the players? What’s your perception of the need for physical capability within international football? How does this align with the coaching model? How do you approach physical capability development?

Martin Evans is a comedian who has grown tired of the grind of the stand-up circuit so he's bought a boat and is looking to sail away the second he gets the chance. Martin is one of the funniest comedians in South Africa and has an incredible resume, he just feels like he's reached a ceiling in SA stand-up that he's tired of trying to breakthrough. Personally, I get it. We learn all about Martin's early days in comedy and his meteoric rise in the London comedy scene before coming back home to SA. We get into the realities of being a stand-up comedian who doesn't walk the corporate path in South Africa before we take a look at the wealth of opportunities that Martin sees before him now that he's not tied to getting his laughs on stage. Martin has been using this lockdown to get introspective and look ahead to the future rather than dwell on past successes and current difficulties. Martin is someone who I have looked up to in South African comedy for quite a long time now, click play to find out why. https://almostperfect.co.za/ep-64-martin-evans/

I speak to comedy purist Martin Evans about a plethora of funny things! I've known Martin for most of my career and he is one of the most quick-witted people out there. Hear us talk about his gout, why he left the UK comedy scene and settle in South Africa, dealing with hecklers in an audience but most importantly - hear the best definition of what polony/bolony is.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Talkward episode 3: Martin Evans In episode 3: I stop just short of begging you to subscribe and not just listen via the website, I talk about being single for the first time in ages, and I give an update on Jackson the rescue dog who mostly seems to have forgotten his traumatic past and is becoming a gentle, lovely dog. With sleep apnoea. Then I talk to award winning comedian, actor and voice artist Martin Evans, who is currently taking a break from stand-up to work out how best to express himself and his quite serious thoughts about the delusional stupidity he encountered in his formative years in the documentary he is making. I was so glad to meet him at last after what has been a long and genuine (possibly one sided) social media bromance. We had a really enjoyable and entertaining talk, which I hope you enjoy.
Kirsty Young's castaway this week is the Nobel Prize-winning scientist Professor Sir Martin Evans. He is known as the grandfather of embryonic stem-cell research because of the breakthrough he made more than 25 years ago to first isolate the stem cells of mice and then cultivate them in a laboratory. After that leap forward, he worked alongside his fellow Nobel laureates Oliver Smithies and Mario Capecchi to develop the Knock-Out Mouse - a mouse that has had part of its genetic code disabled so the effect on the animal can be studied. The Knock-Out Mouse has become a scientific tool used the world over - and has vastly increased the amount of knowledge we have about how the human body works.Brought up on the outskirts of London with enthusiastic and encouraging parents, he says that he was always fascinated by science. But, although he was a bright pupil, he was a shy boy and not the kind of student to walk away with glittering prizes.He was within months of retiring when he got the call, last October, that he had been awarded the greatest honour in science - the Nobel Prize - since then life has been busier than ever and now, he says, he is determined to use his status to try to encourage children to study science, so that they too can be enthused at the miracles of the world around us and the worlds within.[Taken from the original programme material for this archive edition of Desert Island Discs]Favourite track: Their Sound is Gone Out in All Lands by George Frideric HandelBook: Largest anthology of poetry possibleLuxury: A microscope, equipment and a stack of notebooks.
