How Stats Ruined Football Conversation

A little bit of a different post this week, but I wanted to talk about one of my hobbies, which is watching football. The more advanced football has gotten, the more stats and data being utilised. Whilst stats and data has it’s place in the sport, it can’t be ignored that it is killing football conversation and analysis to a certain degree.

As usual, the stats aren’t the problem, it’s how they’re being used.
