About

Hello and welcome back to the Statman Dave… Patreon page!?

This is something I've always wanted to do in the long-term, as it’s a way of bringing the community closer together and an opportunity for me to make exciting new content that I'm unable to share in public for various reasons.

Since starting my Youtube channel back in 2015, you guys have always been at the heart of what I do. It’s about sharing our love for the beautiful game by talking all things football, together. In the past few years, the Statman Dave community has grown even bigger and I hope that this page will help to bring us closer together and create the kind of content you guys deserve and I enjoy making! I spend full days researching and writing my Youtube and social media content, and I’m incredibly proud of the things that I have achieved over on those platforms. However, the success that I have had up to this point does make it very difficult for us to develop new ideas and introduce other formats and types of content for you to enjoy - the algorithms don’t take kindly to new things, although I am always looking to improve the coverage and push myself creatively. This is where Patreon comes in. Setting this up will allow me to create new things and give you a better variety of content without undoing all of that hard work on YouTube. 

So, let’s talk about what those new things are exactly:

  • Exclusive analytical videos 

This is something I'm really excited about! Exclusively on Patreon, I'm able to bring you video analysis. Whether it's talking through key moments from the past weekend's games, highlighting why one player is a great replacement for another or analysing a new manager’s key tactical principles - I'll be able to talk through it with you. I'll be able to annotate footage, too, half-time punditry style! 
  • A fortnightly Q&A podcast

Podcasting gives us the opportunity to open up the conversation and to involve you guys in what I do a lot more. Until now, the issues blocking us from making a podcast have been a lack of time and the fact that my YouTube algorithm would take a big hit if I suddenly started posting long form content. However, Patreon solves both of those issues as it shows that there is a demand for the pod, allowing us to dedicate a bit more time to it and it also gives us somewhere to host it. The podcast will be an opportunity for us to answer your questions about all things football - from players that your club should sign to finding work in the industry. Let’s chat!

  • A monthly podcast with players / ex-players

Backers will also receive an additional monthly podcast featuring an interview with a football personality - including plenty of MUFC legends! I'm lucky enough to have established relationships with some great people in the world of football and I'm going to invite some of them over for a coffee and a chat - exclusively for Patreon backers to enjoy. I'll be putting some of your questions to guests, too. Short sections of these interviews will be uploaded to YouTube, but the full podcast will be exclusive to Patreon.

  • Access to a Discord group to discuss all things football with Dave & fellow Patreons

I feel that one of the best ways to bring the community closer together is to introduce a place for us all to talk football! Think of this like a virtual pub, full of people interested in talking about football stats. It’ll be used to talk about transfers/tactics/anything else across the week and on matchdays act as somewhere we can chat about the games as they happen. As well as giving members an opportunity to get to know each other and build a community of stats-loving football fans to watch the games with, I hope it’ll give you an opportunity to see behind the scenes a little - seeing some posts before they go out, helping to decide taglines for tweets and so on. Basically, this is a place for you to get to know us and each other a bit better!

  • Bonus content

I'll also be giving you access to anything else I get time to make! Office debates, behind the scenes vlogs, travel vlogs, office playlists, office film/tv/book recommendations, bloopers, bonus articles. Anything and everything I get a chance to produce is yours exclusively on Patreon.

Moving forward, Patreon is going to be at the heart of the new things I'm doing. There’s so much I can do here that I simply can’t anywhere else. I'm looking forward to providing you with a bunch of extra stuff and keeping you entertained. Thank you for your continued support.
