Mark Warburton will be sniffing around for that job when it comes available then.

Yep. Fulham also this pre season until their continued shitness forced a change to a more traditional regime.

Itís by no means infallible - in fact, in some ways itís difficult to see how it would work.

I wasn't aware of that, I thought they were too busy building a new ground which also allows them to make loads of money building loads of houses?

Yeah. Warburton loved that set up. He's obvs at Forest now after his Rangers move. Being only an hour up the M1 to Barnsley it wouldn't surprise me if he went there in the near future.

Barnsley have been using stats heavily for a few seasons, particularly in scouting in the non-league, doing it well too. Brighton similarly but I guess they went up so donít count.

Your obsessive need to reply to all my messages is very touching.. albeit a tad stalkerish...  Hmmm

But in answer - houses are needed nationwide but these not in the right place where they are actually needed, having acted for a Client in the High Court who was seriously prejudiced by the Brentford project, but eventually got what was owed to them, its background and determination is dubious to say the least.

There are far more variables and dependencies attached to a footballerís stats than there are to a baseball players, which for me drastically dilutes (but does not entirely remove) the effectiveness of the Billy Beane approach.
