I breathe tactics. It started with the admiration for football. American football. :-) But first of all with passion for soccer. And then the questions began to appear themselves.Why the statistics of a playmaker are so modest and quaterback so abundant? Is it possible to measure the effectiveness of one action in football? How to distinguish an intention from a fortuity? What is the real impact of passing accuracy on the score? Why are the statistics not related to the player’s movement vectors? Can a football pitch be a topological space? How the stats of one team affect the other and whether this correlation can be computed?First came baseball, Billy James and SABR, then statistics, math and geometry, finally Football Manager, Excel and the MIT Sloan Sport Analytics conferences. Today brands such as StatsPerform, Match Analysis, StatsBOmb, Opta, Prozone or StatDNA are the future of modern football.Let my works be my humble contribution to these endeavors.
