In our latest podcast Ian McHale, Professor of Sports Analytics at the University, discusses the remarkable rise of analytics in professional sport.
Analytics are the present and the future of professional sports. There use in cycling, baseball and basketball is well documented, but what about football?
Professor McHale believes the Premier League is behind other sports in adopting analytics to drive performance. This means some star players might be over-valued (and overpaid) while the role their teammates play may be overlooked.
If your favourite team does make full use of the analytics at their disposal they will be at a competitive disadvantage.
