The Numbers Game

You may have noticed that in the last few seasons we have seen a big push on statistics in football. This has now also found its way on to our TV screens as Sky and BT Sport start to tell us about things like “Expected Goals”. There is also a burgeoning online community dedicated to statistical analysis in football (but I must admit much of it passes me by). For anyone struggling to get their head around this sudden influx of numbers then I would recommend giving “The Numbers Game” a quick watch. This 20 minute documentary is produced by FourFourTwo and gives a brief, but interesting take on the use of data in sport.
