“Small clubs with limited budgets”, shows Forest Green who had probably the biggest budget ever seen in the conference and lost millions each year which would send most clubs at that level out of business

My dream job - being an analyst for Tottenham. This documentary is amazing. I got my degree in economics because of Moneyball, Billy Beane is the man.

If we can win millions of pounds in financial markets using data we can do again in football. But may be we've got a problem if we couldn't win these millions of pounds in financial markets. ¿?

It may work in baseball and basketball but it'll never work in football.

But how do u measure intrgration of a player in a team. Look messi in argentina and in barcelona.
Gary Mckeon (7 months ago)
isnt that the managers job to get a feel for the player and how he is gonna gel with the team ethos . i suppose you could put a number on when a player under performs or throws a strop and see if there is a pattern that emerges under certain conditions , as you say with messi , argentinas style of play or what the manager is asking him to do .

I wonder if soccer will take to analyitics. Other sports already have, namely Baseball and Hockey. Soccer seems like it's an old boys sport. Change rarely comes. Rules rarely change. Video replay is only in it's infancy. I wonder what will be the first major change that begins a copy cat mentality.

Hey! I've watched all your videos and i just want to say a big thanks for helping us beginners out there. Your channel is amazing and you make it a lot easy for us to understand and learn the game properly.. I'd really appreciate it if you could do a video series on how to become a better player. Wish you a great new year and I really hope that you'll consider my request faithfully...
