Purely Arsenal - Football Purists, an AFC podcast

Jeff & Jimmy are back with a special guest, Stefan Szymanski co-author of Soccernomics.

Cafe Footballers will remember Soccernomics from our first podcast.  Billy Beane, GM of Oakland Athletics and of Moneyball fame considers Stefan the "Bill James of Soccer", the analytical underpinning of a sport with talent scouts, managers, executives, even fans who rely more on perceptions & opinion vs. objective data.

Stefan tackles current issues in the game, like what to do for an English national team recovering from embarrassment post Allardyce, wage caps for youth and first team for teams in the Premier League for or against, the rise of MLS & China and the women's leagues.  Good discussion.

Check out Stefan's current book, Money & Soccer
