Episode 6: In the beginning (again)

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

In Episode 6, we find ourselves once again at the start of things, talking about the seminal work of Jonathan Wilson and Michael Cox. Where do you even start telling the story of how soccer is played? How should you describe the inner workings of the game, and what should your evidence look like? Wilson and Cox’s different approaches to writing about soccer inspired a generation of tactics and analytics bloggers to go forth and multiply.
