Regression analysis is of limited use for complex data sets 3. Oktober 2014
Von Sarah C Hunt - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I am an American who never played any significant soccer and only watched my children play through about junior high. My interest has only developed after age 65 from watching US national teams and uefa Champions league on TV. So maybe I dont know much about soccer, but I have done a lot of statistical analysis of complex data sets over a long university career. I think the book includes lots of interesting observations about soccer. My main complaint is the authors uncritical use of regression analysis to try to find cause effect relationships. Regression is based on correlations between pairs of variables, and more correlations between variables crudely adjusted for the effects of still more variables. The results may depend critically on minor changes in the data sets analyzed which affect the order in which variables are incorporated into the analysis. And of course correlation does not establish cause and effect. I was entirely unconvinced by their long paragraphs describing results of regression analysis, and started skipping reading most of these sections. So if I evaluate only the sections free of regression results, I would raise my score to four stars.

This is a good book. One that most any fan should consider for their reading list.

It does have a few problems, and a number of the conclusions the authors reach have gaping logical flaws. Specifically, they spend considerable time (correctly) reminding readers that there is a difference between causation and correlation, yet they proceed to make the exact same mistake on multiple occassions, particularly as relates to salary vs. transfer investment, a core discussion point of the book. They also spend a quite exhaustive (and frankly nauseating) amount of time explicitly making the point that this book is the soccer version of "Moneyball". The entire first chapter is basically a ham-fisted advertisement for this claim.

But those are the complaints. There are many good reasons to read this--- it is engaging in its narrative, and educational even to those already familiar with many of the concepts. And the anecdotal evidence (often a weakness in books of this genre) is actually mouthwateringly good.... many tidbits that simply aren't part of the mainstream coverage of the sport, even for those who geek heavily on soccer blogs.

Probably, this is "must read" if you really study the global game. But you will take umbrage with some of the conclusions. Maybe that's normal-- we all have a unique passion for the beautiful game.

Everything you wanted and need to know about where soccer has been and is going. 8. Juli 2014
Von Reg Nordman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This is Freakonomics for soccer an updated edition by experts in the field. How data analytics are driving soccer forward toward a high skill, high strategy game, leaving Canada, Africa, and England a bit behind. The authors trace the impact of strategists and statisticians as well as the Dutch total soccer movement. They look at all facets of soccer all over the world and pick Iran and the US as ones to watch , depending on what they do after the World Cup. The impact of a World Cup on a country is surprising ( Its really a big party so everyone feels good - pretty poor Roi). A fascinating and insightful yet easy to read book. You will learn a lot.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is fantastic. It being the moneyball of Soccer is just about the most accurate thing you can say. I immensely enjoyed just about everything in the book and had a hard time putting it down. You'll learn a lot, more than you probably can fathom. A lot of the knowledge is esoteric, and unless you're a real soccer nut with soccer nut friends, you may not have much to do with the information. But its that kind of book that you just want to share everything when you read it. I myself spent a significant amount of time explaining concepts on pay/transfers to someone who doesn't even know what soccer is, so excited I was. Really a must read if you love the beautiful game.
Soccer and data analysis - a perfect mix 31. August 2014
Von Claudio A. Rodrigues - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am suspect to say anything about this book: I love soccer (or football as we call it in Brazil) and I love data analysis. This book mixes both with a very pleasant narrative. I can say anything "bad" about it is that it does not mention teams from Brazil but this is understandable and I knew that beforehand.
