Kuper, a brilliantly contrary columnist, and Szymanski, an economics professor As a fan of all sports and statistics and having read freakonomics i found the book contained some interesting insights into the world of football in particular the English premier league.

Contained are rational insights into why some teams do better than others and the factors leading to success and failure. That’s meant to grab your attention on a bookshelf hey, it works between the title parodying Freakonomics and the blurb about the US, Japan, Turkey, and even Iraq becoming the kings of soccer. Soccernomics is a fantastic look at a soccer from a completely different point-of-view than you’re probably used to seeing.

Using insights and analogies from economics, statistics, psychology, and business to cast a new and entertaining light on how the game works, Soccernomics reveals the often soccernomivs counterintuitive truths about soccer.

While I may be biased Australia with by far its too major sports Aussie Rules and Rugby league aoccernomics included and would normally be rated in the top 10s of baseball, basketball and asj but unfortunately the top 5s of sports were included in the rather crude calculations.


However as an Australian fan where the premier league has always been shown extensively more so than the local leagues it is understandable that this league and European football as a whole was used due to its more reliable statistics.
