LAPRESA, Daniel et al. Degradation of T-patterns in observational studies: a study on the effectiveness in futsal. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.1, pp.71-82. ISSN 1989-5879.

One of the most recent analytical techniques in observational methodology is T-pattern detection and analysis (regular structures of behaviour) with the THEME software. THEME analyses observational data, searching for critical interval relationship between single event types to more complex T-pattern structures. The current study analyses the degradation of T-patterns that have only been studied punctually. With this objective we analyse a sample of sequences from Barcelona FC, from the final playoffs in the Spanish Futsal League, that end in a goal (n=23). A second objective of this study is to analyse the efficacy of offensive phase in futsal, it having been typified that the sequences that they finish in goal characterize for central definition - broker obtains, by means of game combinativo, a throwing from sector.

Keywords : Observational methodology; futsal; T-patterns; THEME; degradation.
