In Episode 06 of the Analytics FC Podcast Sam and Tom are joined by Grantland staff writer Mike L. Goodman. We discuss Mike’s role at Grantland and the analytical approach he takes in his writing, talking in depth about TSR (Total Shots Ratio) and Expected Goals. Mike also talks to us about his thoughts on what Analytics writers do well and can improve on, including the use of data visualizations in writing - referencing work done by fellow Grantland writer Kirk Goldsberry. Next we actually discuss some real football - looking forward to next season with Southampton, Liverpool and Juventus. We also talk about Juventus’ smart transfer market moves, and get into a big debate about the not-even-confirmed move or Petr Cech to Arsenal. Finally Tom and Sam trade very weak blows about a potential Canada-England Womens World Cup Quarter Final and Mike gives away the key criteria for getting a job at Grantland.
