    The Numbers Game: Why Everything You Know About Football is Wrong

    By: Chris Anderson & David Sally

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    Why does stopping a goal beat scoring one?
    Why do the best defenders rarely touch the ball?
    Why is ditching your worst player smarter than buying a superstar?

    In this myth-busting book, Chris Anderson and David Sally show that the normal football terms - goals, possession, points, transfer fees - can actually hinder how we understand the game. Instead, by diving deep into the data, they uncover hidden truths about what is really happening on the pitch.

    Wonderfully readable and counter-intuitive, The Numbers Game will win you plenty of pub arguments. After reading it you will never think about football in the same way again.
