In this episode I speak with Stuart Carrington. Stuart is a lecturer of Sports Coaching Science at St Mary's University, London. He has a background in soccer as a coach - having worked at two Premier League football clubs. Stuart also holds a Masters degree in Sport Psychology and is a REBT primary certificate holder.
Stuart is also author of the soon to be released Blowing the Whistle: The Psychology Behind Football Refereeing. And it’s this book we mostly speak about specifically VAR; psychological influences on referees; the impact of the crowd; intrinsic motivation; managing emotions on the pitch; fans educating themselves and psychologically preparing to play.
