Ahead of the start of Euro 2020, we are back with a tactical breakdown this week. In Episode 36, we take a look into a tactical approach called “The Third Man Run”. A very simple approach as a concept, but very effective when executed properly. We discuss the nuances of this approach, why it is useful, and how it can maximise space on the pitch. We…
 
We are surprised ourselves that it has taken this long to discuss them, but in Episode 35 we discuss all things penalties! Favourite penalty of all time? The worst penalty of all time? We share our thoughts, but we’d love you to send in some of your most memorable penalties, good or bad. Of course, it wouldn’t be a fanalytics episode if we didn’t p…
 
This episode needs very little build-up, as we had the pleasure of having former professional footballer and well-known pundit and commentator, Chris Sutton on the Football Fanalytics Podcast! Chris is an English Premier League winner and Golden Boot winner with Blackburn Rovers, plus a four-time Scottish Premier League winner, a three-time Scottis…
 
As we near the end of the season, the rumour mill is certainly in full flow for potential signings in the upcoming summer transfer window. That’s why we thought it would be a good opportunity to dive back into the Twenty3 Content Toolbox and look into some potential signings that could fit your team! Thank you to everyone who sent their requests in…
 
It’s been a strange week for football, but you will be pleased to know that this episode does not centre on The European Super League! In Episode 32, we explore an advanced analytical model called Pitch Control. Essentially, this model looks to quantify the creation of space on the pitch and see how players can maximise this space on or off the bal…
 
It’s the very essence of the game. For any team to score a goal they need to have the ball. And having the ball for any period is, of course, termed possession. But how useful are possession statistics in providing information about the game? What else can be used to outline which team was more dominant? As always, we scratch below the surface to l…
 
Certainly an episode for the fan side of our fanalytics content, this week! In Episode 30, we focus on dribbling and recall some of the best players to have ever graced the game with their ability to run with the ball. We’re talking Ronaldinho, Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Okocha - all of them capable of getting us off our seat with their skills. But …
 
After our football analytics debate in Episode 28, we are back to our more traditional format this week! With a football twist on a classic song, in Episode 29 we thought we would dig back into the Twenty3 Content Toolbox and take a closer look at some Premier League players whose “stats are on fire”. A bit of fun to be had in this one, and let us …
 
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 off…
 
It’s the age-old question. How can you reliably work out which team is better than another? You might say whoever has more points in the league, sure, but what if you wanted to compare teams between leagues? In Episode 27, we dig into exactly how to assess team strength using the Elo rating system. We explore how the system works, why it is useful,…
 
It will be of no surprise to anyone that the closer you are to goal, the more opportunity you have of scoring. But exactly where on the pitch might be the best location to create a goalscoring chance? In Episode 26, we take a closer look at a piece of tactical analysis that divides the pitch up into key zones. The zone that has been shown to be mos…
 
In Episode 25, we were very excited to welcome Sam Tighe on the podcast as our first guest of 2021. Sam is best known for his writing with ‘Bleacher Report’ and Southampton Football Club, plus his very successful ‘Ranks FC’ podcast and his huge love of worldwide football! We chatted about Sam’s career so far, his thoughts on data and analytics in t…
 
With Frank Lampard’s recent dismissal, we thought it would be a good opportunity to see whether Chelsea’s underlying numbers were as bad as first thought. In Episode 24, we discuss expected points - an extension of xG which allows us to see how many points you’d expect a team to accrue based on the quality of chances they make and concede. Does the…
 
It is our last opportunity to talk about signings this month, as the January transfer window draws to a close! In Episode 23, we chat about the players who didn’t quite make the impact they wanted to, upon signing for a new club. What is it that makes a ‘football misfit’ when a player makes the transfer to a new team? How can we use analytics to mi…
 
Closing the opposition down, and winning the ball back is nothing new in football. But in modern football, you often hear more use of terms like “gegenpressing” and “high intensity”. In Episode 22, we delve deeper into our understanding of how a team presses the opposition. Using analytics, we can reveal which teams press with high intensity, and w…
 
This week we are keeping things topical and discussing the January transfer market! It’s that time of year where clubs may be looking for a quick fix to address their injury problems, or to give their squad a much-needed boost heading into the second half of the season. In Episode 21 we take a look at some potential transfers that a few Premier Lea…
 
It’s a new year, and we are back with a new episode! In Episode 20, we discuss a recent analysis from Mark, who had the pleasure of working with a Championship football club. The aim was to support the club in their recruitment strategy, and understand how a player’s performance metrics translate when moving from one league to another. How much doe…
 
After a short break, we’re back with a fanalytics bang this week! In Episode 19, we discuss an innovative model that is highly regarded in the analytics community, called Expected Threat (xT). Introduced originally by Karun Singh, this model is a hugely interesting way to look at the value of possession in any area of the pitch, and the future rewa…
 
It’s Episode 18, and with the international break now behind us for this calendar year, it is back to the packed schedule of club football until Christmas. But with the injury list growing at a rapid rate for so many teams, we discuss the cost that brings to the quality of football on display. With Joe Gomez the most recent high-profile player to b…
 
A huge episode for the podcast this week, where we had the delight of speaking with senior commentator and Football Correspondent for BBC Radio 5 Live, John Murray. We chatted with John about his approach to commentary, his preparation ahead of each game, and even got him to reveal the best game he has ever commentated on! We also discuss John’s vi…
 
With this week’s lockdown 2.0 news, the prospect of getting fans back in the stadium looks increasingly unlikely in the near future! In Episode 16, we take a slightly sharp turn to chat about the effect of the crowd towards player performance. Does the crowd affect the physiological responses in players? How does the absence of a crowd influence ho…
 
We’re still catching our breath from a hectic start to the Premier League season, so we thought we would take stock of some of the crazy scorelines that we have seen so far. Are the results finally starting to calm down? Has there actually been more chances created in the games? Was this goalfest ever going to be sustainable? We look to answer all …
 
A big week for the podcast this week. We can officially announce that we are now in association with sports intelligence business, Twenty3 - and we have another guest on the pod! In Episode 14, we were delighted to be joined by Reece Chambers, Football Recruitment Consultant at SciSports. Reece discussed his role in helping football clubs gain data…
 
We’re back with a full episode! We’ve gone less with the analytics and more with the tactics this week, taking a closer look at the origin and evolution of some of the tactical set-ups that have shaped the game. How was Pep Guardiola influenced by the Hungarian national team? Is 'parking the bus' the same as Catenaccio? Is the long ball method stat…
 
In a shorter episode this week, we look back at the weekend’s Premier League results, assess our Fantasy Premier League teams, and provide an update on what we have coming up soon on the Football Fanalytics pod!โดย The Football Fanalytics Podcast
 
This week, we are combining the ‘fan’ and ‘analytics’ with another guest on the pod! In Episode 12, we chat with Felix Pate who is the founder of the company “Looks Good on Paper”. A key part of their work is a new metric called Impact Score, so we unpick exactly what it is and how it works! How do you compare Diego Maradona with Lionel Messi? Amon…
 
A football club might say “We want a forward who plays like Ciro Immobile at Lazio, but we don’t have the budget to afford him. Which player is similar to him in Europe, who might be more affordable?” In Episode 11, we look at an analysis which could help clubs to optimise their approach in the scouting process. With the transfer window nearing its…
 
Our second guest on The Football Fanalytics Podcast! In Episode 10, we enjoyed speaking with Eric Laurie, Head of Academy Performance Analysis and Under 16s Coach at Norwegian champions Molde FK. We chatted about the crucial role that video analysis plays within an academy, how Eric's performance analysis background can provide insight that can’t b…
 
After our chunky episode last week picking our Fantasy Premier League teams, we are back to our analytical roots this week! In Episode 9, we unpick the commentary cliché of ‘a good time to score’. Is there ever a bad time to score? How important is scoring first in a match? Is there any truth in a two-goal lead being a ‘dangerous scoreline’? We dis…
 
It’s that time of year again! Who’s in your squad? Who’s your captain? Who’s on the bench? In Episode 8, we fully get our teeth into our squad for this season’s Fantasy Premier League. We uncover our best method for picking our players, look at how we can maximise points with each signing, and Ryan pits his squad against Mark’s squad ahead of Gamew…
 
Our first guest on The Football Fanalytics Podcast! In Episode 7, we had the pleasure of speaking with Tom Goodall, a Technical Analyst who has most recently worked at Swansea City and Derby County. We got a deeper insight into what the role of a Technical Analyst entails, what a typical week looks like for Tom and the analysis team, and how data c…
 
“Football is a simple game based on the giving and receiving of passes, of controlling the ball and making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple.” In Episode 6, we cover the somewhat broad topic of ‘passing’ in football. The most simple element of the game, perhaps, but we look to show how some passes have more value than othe…
 
In this mini-episode, we pause for thought on the past few weeks of the pod, catch up on the messages we’ve received so far, and look ahead to what’s coming up in the next few weeks!โดย The Football Fanalytics Podcast
 
In football clubs around the world, managers are now only a few poor results away from the sack. It’s a brutal industry, but should the manager’s head always be the first one on the chopping block? In Episode 5, we discuss the myth of the ‘manager bounce’ - the upturn in form after a new manager comes in. But when results are needed fast for a stru…
 
Admit it, at some stage you’ve said that an underperforming player is ‘overrated’. But is that always a fair term to use? In Episode 4, we break down how players can be thought of as ‘overrated’. Is it simply a difference of opinion? Does a player’s transfer fee influence that opinion? Or can performance statistics provide some truth behind those v…
 
“Players begin to decline when they reach the age of 30.” Well, try and tell that to Ryan Giggs! In Episode 3, we delve deeper into what is meant by a player’s ‘peak age’. Is it a definitive bracket that applies to all players? How does it vary from each position? Are we talking about physical performance or technical ability? We discuss how sports…
 
How do you explain to someone who has never watched a game of football, that Roy Keane and Robert Pires were both ‘midfielders’? They played totally different roles in their team! In episode two, we take an in-depth look at midfield playing styles across Europe. We look at how the role of the midfielder has evolved over the years, and explore how y…
 
This probably won’t be the first time you hear the phrase ‘Expected Goals (xG)’. But while many football fans will be aware of the term, some still ask “What is the point of xG?”. Fans may say, ‘They had to score!’’, or ‘You’ve got no chance from there!’ - but what factors actually influence the chance of scoring? Have they ‘missed a sitter’ or was…
