Default Analytics in Football - Official Thread

I thought this was worthy of it's own thread as it's a topic that's getting increasing focus in the mainstream press, off the back of a groundswell of activity in among twitterati.

I'll kick things off with someone analytics related from a different sport.

I saw on Twitter that the NBA are now tracking the "secondary assists per game" stat or, as it's known on here, "assisting the assister".

Michael Carrick will be pleased.

Do we have any hard data for the assistant to the assister in soccer though?

Nice one Philby, had contemplated starting this very thread myself but didn't want to bore the pants off the forum.

I hear ya. It sounds kinda nerdy but there has to be a sizeable audience out there (and on here) for more nuanced analysis & new ways of analysing the play.

I suppose. I can stick up plenty of stuff here as I'm keeping spreadsheets on all top 5 leagues.
