It will show it is possible to carry out analytics without recourse to expensive software and the kind of backroom team that is only possible in the higher levels of the professional game.

Five stars!~

The content of this book is very informative and good. However, soccer needs demonstration and pictures. This book lacks pictures. Personally, I do not understand the theory behind reading a book about soccer when you can just watch it online! I guess it's to strengthen your reading skills. Anyways, this book would be great for those who love to read about soccer.

Ways of soccer!

I am not a fan of soccer but with the system they use to win a game is a very interesting one. Hope the book can give more information about it.

Great for all knowledge levels!

It really discusses the factors that can affect sports performance, including psychological factors which are never typically addressed. Definitely worth the money! It comes with the datasets that are discussed in each of the sports chapters.

Helpful Listen!

I learned a lot from this one. I've always been a big believer in analytics but never saw it used for soccer until now. Pleased I went ahead and checked this one out. Lots of great takeaways. Nice work!

can’t go wrong!

A well-written and engaging book that helps the reader begin to question those canned statistics, assumptions, and stereotypes we are so often fed as football fans.
