Episode 28 - The Football Analytics Debate

We’ve decided to take a slight change of pace this week. No new analytics terms, but an old-fashioned debate! In Episode 28, we chat about the ongoing discussion surrounding the use of analytics in football. While it is a thread throughout all of our episodes, it has been a topic that has re-emerged in the media in recent weeks and we wanted to offer our thoughts on the pod. Importantly, we don’t want this discussion to end here! We want to hear your thoughts on this debate, so please get in contact on Twitter at @Fanalyticspod or email us at fanalytics.pod@gmail.com.
