zonal marking and four at the back already back then. Look at these two teams of his as an example for 4-3-3.

Out of the 20 leagues / seasons that we have the data for, the 2013/14 EPL season has got the highest PPDA value, ie it seen the least amount of pressing. It seems that Mauricio Pochettino is still very much the exception, and not the norm in the Premier League.
We can also see that the three leagues / seasons that witnessed the highest levels of intense pressing were all during the 2011/12 season.
Is this simply some variance associated with small sample sizes or is it a coincidence that this was the last season that Guardialo was in charge of Barcelona and tika taka was all the rage? We can’t be certain either way, but it is interesting that all of the 2013/14 season PPDA values are relatively high – this suggests that pressing as a defensive tactic is not as dominating as it has been in the recent past.

of course everybody know about peps barca

u, Barca barely wavered from the range of 6 – 9. However, as soon as Vilanova took the reins we can see that the team’s PPDA value started to rise. In other words, Barcelona attempted fewer defensive actions per pass they allowed beyond the x = 40 line than they had previously done. They had abandoned the way that they played when they weren’t in possession of the ball.
Sadly for Vilanova, we are all aware of what happened next. After 17 games of the 2012 / 13 season he was admitted to hospital where he underwent cancer treatment. Officially, the Barcelona team was under Tito’s management for the entire season, however, it seems pretty clear to me that as soon as Vilanova was admitted to hospital Barcelona began to revert to the game plan that had held them in such good stead under Guardiola.
The rate at which Barcelona reduced their PPDA metric in early 2013 (Game number 91 onwards in the above plot) is nothing short of remarkable. The Catalan giants performed a huge about turn in how they approached the game when they weren’t in possession of the ball. Either Vilanova had a tactical rethink during his period of convalescence or it seems that Jordi Roura was actually in charge of the team’s tactics during this period. Given the stark differences in the PPDA values, I know which of those two options my money is on.

it's all about using what's at your exposal.

people don't understand moneyball isn't about being cheap. It's about finding solutions in an unfair game w/ your own financial realities.

And billy loves it :lol: he dont want a big wage bill , to be honest he gets a kick out of it, he just dont give a fuck.


he is way ahead of the curve compared to all the giants ( like ibm or amaxon or anybody)
Thats the great thing about data analysis, if you can question the conventional methods, if its not your money you cant go with intuition all the time. analytics has not resulted completely into profit because the loop is not closed or most of the people do it because its the coolest term like bigdata, cloud, mobile yada yada

billy beane doesnt give a fuck he wants to spit on the conventions and he knows there is a direct result from being ruthless, data intelligent and bold.

his balls should replace your emblem

have you seen that Indian basketball owner of Kings? he is too much hands own and I hate his basketball philosphy
but he said one sentence last centuary was about technology this centuary is about mathematics or what to do with technology is producing, he is the dude who digitlized wall street in late 80s or 90s

Love Vivek. Really nice guy. MEt him once.

He was part owner of Warriors before he bought them.

He's good for Sacramento if you know their history. Very motivated, commited, geniune guy. But he's very green at the moment. Learning curve. Nothing new.


I'm not a huge bill simmons fan but he's dead on when he says vivek is making 'classic new owner mistakes'.
