"If Moneyball does eventually succeed there can be little truck with it, but there are obvious problems. Cricket and baseball have set plays, repeated to the point of statisitcal value. In football, the game is more fluid, with less easily dissected events, exposed far more often than subjectivity in interpretation." Bromantic - this one is for you. Good read, could the Billy Bean Moneyball scheme backfire for LFC. I would say based on the first 6 months of the scheme it appears so.
