This is an archive of five years worth of work that models how advanced stats & analytics can play a key role in the decision making process clubs face on a regular basis.

Five years! In that time I’ve had the opportunity to provide analysis for the club I’ve supported all of my life & the unique experience of consulting a small, progressive club desperate to avoid life in Scotland’s League One. Then, was able to be part of a great team of likeminded individuals that took a throw away idea & turned it into Modern Fitba. A lot of people have supported my work & kept me going over the years…& I wanted to make sure I thank them.
