A Walk With Legends: The Number 9️⃣
Jan 18 2020 35 mins  
Until 1928 football players didn’t have #s on the back of their jerseys. When initially introduced, #s signaled where and what role the player plays on their team. Arsenal and Sheffield Wednesday (then known as Wednesday Football Club) were the first two teams to field players wearing 1-11, with the lower numbers belonging to defensive-minded players and higher ones to offensive ones. In this show we're highlighting the Number 9: your poacher, your striker, your goalscorer. Join us to reminisce about and perhaps learn a thing or two about your favorite legends and current #9s. Players like El Fenomeno, Mia Hamm, Di Stefano, Samuel Eto'o, Sun Wen, Marco Van Basten, Miedema, Robert Lewandowski and more! Plus we've introduced a fun new Trivia segment so you can impress your friends and family with your superb football knowledge now. P.S. A wonderful tribute to the one and only R9.

The Science of Winning: An Interview with Professor Konstantinos Pelechrinis
Aug 17 2019 24 mins  
Johan Cruyff used to insist that players only have the ball for ~ 3 minutes per game. So what makes a player great is what they do the other 87 minutes without the ball, walking/jogging/sprinting/zigzagging into space. While data analytics is not new to sports, it has largely been absent from the world’s most popular sport until the past 5-10 years. In this episode, we had the privilege of chatting with Kostas Pelechrinis, an Associate Professor at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Computing and Information where he leads the Network Data Science Lab. Kostas along with co-author Wayne Winston, Professor Emeritus of Decision Sciences at the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, wrote a fascinating paper to determine which positions contribute more to winning AND are undervalued by the market. In this effort, they combed through ~ 20,000 games from 11 European leagues over a period of 8 seasons, as well as, player ratings from @easportsfifa! Tune in as we get into the history of data analytics in soccer dating back to late 70’s, the current state of data analytics and how/if technology can be used to have more and better data! 🗣You can read the paper in full, here (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1807.07536.pdf) 🗣🗣 Check out our 1st drop 👉🏽 D10S (https://eterno.boutique/collections/boutique) --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/eternoHQ/support
