Quite surprisingly, we absolutely dominated our group, a strong group containing Spartak Moscow, Partizan Belgrade and Sporting Lisbon. I’ll be back as soon as I can with the end of season report, to see whrther we’ve managed to hang on to 1st place. The comparison with how ‘Moneyball’ changed the thinking in baseball is an obvious but relevant analogy for what 21st Club and consultancies like theirs are trying to do in soccer.
“We're all about trying to help teams understand their identity, their strategy and what they're trying to achieve,” Wooster says. Working well so far. “One of the issues with using the stats that everyone talks about in the media and often within clubs - tackles, possession, passes, whatever - it's really hard to understand how those metrics translate across leagues from a recruitment point of view,” Chaudhuri says. Gil has spent the majority of his career in the 2nd and 3rd levels of Spanish football, so is an ultimate example of a player being undervalued.

They too liked what they found and, a month after he joined Red Star, the Dutchman scored in a Champions League qualifier. My next signing was one I had gone back and forth on for several months in game. I also cancelled the loan of Ryan Kent, who had averaged 6.98 for us, but had chipped in with some important goals for us, but lost his position in the side early on in the season. I’m starting to bring in my Moneyball transfers, and I’m ecstatic with all of them so far. Soccer consultancy 21st Club suggested Ebecilio to Red Star as a potential signing. I’m sure many of you out there thought about this after seeing the movie. He suggested the Serbian champions take a look at Ebecilio. “Red Star approached us with a shortlist of names given to them by agents.
Soccer consultancy 21st Club suggested Ebecilio to Red Star as a potential signing. My articles cover, As a Senior Contributor for Forbes, I write about sports business with a particular focus on the world’s most popular sport – soccer (football). Young Glenn Middleton smashes in his first goal for the club, in our recent 3-1 win against Livingston. I’ll then analyse the stats of the players they recommend to see if they’re suitable.

But in a London office more than 2,000 miles from Cyprus (and more than 1,000 miles from Belgrade), an analyst working at his computer liked what he saw. Named for former Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo, it uses similar machine-learning algorithms to Netflix and Amazon to offer smart insights and recommend players – like Ebecilio – who may not be on club’s radars.
Even then, scoring is still more important than not conceding at home, although there is only 0.10 of equivalent difference. Goals after that aren’t worth anything. He still fulfils rules 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9 of my Moneyball principles. I searched for players who had an average rating of above 7.00, showing that they’re in good form and that form is replicable, and up he popped, playing in the Segunda in Spain. 21st Club created PIRLO (Predictive Intelligence Research and Learning Outputs), an analytics engine with information on 150,000 players.
Improved player recruitment, and the short-term boost it can provide, is a common goal for clubs.
In terms of data input, it follows the same principle.

Youngster Aidan Wilson went out on loan to Alloa, and Carlos Peña was sold for £950k to Mexican second division side Dorados – his value is now £875k – after averaging a shocking 6.4 whilst out on loan, and I was also chuffed to get rid of his £25k per week wages.
Ever wondered how the commentators sound so clever?

This has meant that Wes Foderingham has become our first choice keeper again – he was at the beginning of the season – and I need to plan for goalkeeper moving forward. Realistically, I’d have been happy with challenging for 2nd in this group, but probably going out after finishing 3rd. However, this hasn’t been the only successes we’ve had so far this season. I then reasoned that as long as I gave him game time, his stats showed that he’d be able to do the same thing for Rangers. After all, statistics are what I’m focusing on here. Next up were two signings I largely made for depth. Wooster says 21st Club has worked with “most, if not all” Premier League clubs and now gets about half of its business from teams overseas. Soccer has been later than other sports in embracing data and analytics. The problem is that you can only do this analysis when the independent variables are uncorrelated which in this case is not true. Wooster built a team of people from professions that are becoming increasingly valuable in soccer. The only problem I have at the moment is I’d like us to score more goals to go along with our possession, but that will come with time.

Financially, the club looks healthy with around £16m in the bank, and I still have £1.6m to spend, which is going to be left alone – remember, if I don’t have any weaknesses to fill as of yet, spending money would be wasting money. But, and there’s a few but’s.
Right, time for part two of Moneyball in Football Manager 2019.For any of you just catching up with this save now, in Part 1 we outlined what my theory behind Moneyball is, the rules I’ll be following throughout this save, and who I’ll actually be playing as, Glasgow Rangers. Once suspicious of digging too deeply into the science of their sport, clubs have realized the benefit. “We said ‘what if we were the 21st Club in the league, how would we do things? Baseball is quite far from football, and this is what leaves us room for creativity on figuring out the moneyball concept in football. The only problem is that mere days before joining the team in January, he injured his cruciate ligament, and so we won’t be able to play him for 8 more months. How would we try to get a competitive edge, how would we run our business, how would we exploit some of the inefficiencies that exist in football?’”.

I’d analysed that our major weakness was in the centre of the park, both through a lack of quality in that area – hence Halliday and Dorrans being sold – but also a lack of cover as a result of injuries. “Ebecilio has been a good signing for them and it's a good example of being able to widen the net using data that you just can't do with traditional scouting or just using agents. It’s an ultimate Moneyball example, finding an undervalued player from a lower leagues, but who statistically fits perfectly, and signing him for peanuts. I had one in particular I was looking at, but my scouts spotted Lawrence Shankland for me, available from Ayr for pretty much nothing. De Rossi's missing sleeve.
