We’re here to supply with you with the tools to win any football argument on today’s episode of FRD’s Book Club, as we take a look at Simon Kuper and Stefan Szymanski’s ‘Soccernomics’!

This project has taken on a life of its own since it was first published in 2009; the book and its data-driven analysis are continually updated in subsequent editions, with some theories proven and others revised within the context of the modern game. Kate Mason, Andy Brassell and Luke Moore pull their respective editions from their shelves and sit down to discuss some of the entertaining anecdotes from the book and the wider discussion around statistics’ place in football discourse – and we also hear from Simon Kuper himself about the process involved in continually updating what may prove to be a life’s work.
