I currently work as a supervisor in live data production for primarily South/Latin American professional football leagues including the Copa Libertadores, Brazil Série A-B, Chile Primera División, Colombia Primera A, Ecuador Liga Pro, Peru Liga 1, and Liga MX, as well as MLS. We produce live match details for media clients including lineups, goals, assists, cards, substitutions, and play-by-play details with the league detail level dependent on the data package requested by our clients. As I seek to turn a cool job into a real career path in the sport that I love, I have decided to begin taking statistics and data analytics courses in my free time while practicing practical applications using the extensive and easily exportable data produced in Football Manager. This save will document my journey from data monkey to data expert (hopefully, probably not). I will begin as an unemployed, unlicensed, former Sunday league footballer (as is the case in real life), applying for jobs in the lowest available division of the USA league system (USL League Two). My database will be limited to the countries I currently cover at work (at least at the beginning), and I will use a data-driven approach in my recruitment and squad selection. Let the game begin!

2024 Season ReviewThe season began well, with our asymmetric 4-2-3-1 creating many more chances than we had during pre-season. I then caused a horrific run of form with my tactical tinkering once again, before reverting back to the asymmetric 4-2-3-1 and...
