We talk about data analysis with key football industry thought leaders
We look at the beautiful game in a different light. Each episode, we’re joined by a guest from the world of analytics to talk about the ways we can use numbers, statistics and data to better understand the sport.
Past guests include Christofer Clemens (German National Team), Damien Comolli (Toulouse and Liverpool), Gabriele Marcotti (ESPN), Tom Worville (The Athletic), Rory Campbell (West Ham United), Rene Maric (Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund) and many more.

WHAT WE TALK ABOUT:
Each episode, we'll dig into the numbers across a wide variety of topics from the use of data models for scouting, to artificial intelligence for injury prevention, to academies maximising their player development and productivity.
“Everything we’re doing in analytics is not to have the final proof, yes or no, wrong or right. What we’re doing is to raise the chances or limit the risk”.
– Christofer Clemens, Head of Analysis & Scouting, German National Team
“You don’t tell data, you show it. I want to let the data and graphics tell the story for me”.
– Tom Worville, Football Analytics Writer, The Athletic
“In coaching, if you create games, rules and situations you can implicitly force players to learn more efficient shooting situations to score, whilst still making their own decisions”.
– Rene Maric, Assistant Coach, FC Red Bull Salzburg
“Finding the mean is perhaps the most difficult thing in football".
– Oliver Seitz, Business Intelligence Director, United World (Holding company of Sheff. Utd, Beerschot, Châteauroux, Kerala United & Alhilal United)
“There’s a difference between stats and analytics. Stats tell you about events that have happened. Analytics is interpreting those stats to predict future performance”.
– Rory Cambell, Head of Technical Scouting, West Ham United Football Club
