Posting at The Arc this year has been sparse, just as I foresaw. Sorry about that. I’m not planning to go back to regular posting anytime soon, but I intend to eventually, when time permits. In the meantime, you can always see my Elo model’s team ratings and projections here, and tips for the forthcoming round here.
If you’re interested in footy, particularly in what numbers can tell us about the game, you might be interested in the new book Footballistics out now through ABC Books! The book is written by James Coventry along with a bunch of co-authors, including me! I co-wrote the chapter on teams’ cohesion and the chapter on home-ground advantage and the effect of travel on players, as well as chipping in a few bits and pieces to some other chapters. If you like The Arc, I’m very confident you’ll enjoy the book.
