Big Data, The Squad and Brown
Data and statistics are increasingly playing a big part in sport but our guest today suggests that football remains largely in the dark ages in this field. His belief is that this is changing, and rapidly and those clubs that are late adopters will find themselves at a long term disadvantage.
For those who follow him on twitter, @Jucojames has been at the forefront of detailing the numbers behind Celtic performances and, once we get past how he ended up being a Celtic numbers fanatic, we use the data to discuss the elephant in the room - at his age should Brown be playing so much football?
I’ll not do a spoiler but your head will tell you what your heart denies on that one.
Hope you enjoy the podcast - all 2 hours!
