About Football Polemics

I thought about naming this blog “A Yank in South America watching football.”  That didn’t seem very pithy though.

I watch alot of football.  I mainly watch the English Premier League and Spanish La Liga, but I live in Argentina so I also watch a fair amount of the Argentine Primera Division.   I watch pretty much every Champions League match, and I occasionally catch a game from Serie A in Italy or almost anywhere else.

Not all my club loyalties make a ton of sense, but such is life as aside from Argentina, I’ve never lived in these places.  I count myself as a big Boca Juniors, Fulham, Barcelona, and Arsenal fan.   After that list, there is no doubt, I like attacking football.   I also like clubs that employ Americans.

So I’ll post my thoughts on matches, maybe a link to where you can watch them online, rant about Alex Ferguson, complain about the fake Ronaldo’s diving habits, etc.  I also plan to post about statistic aspects of the game, but we shall see.

My dream in life is that a private equity fund gives me $100M to turn into a $1B club using sabermetrics and statistical analysis.  I think the stats revolution is coming to football, the question is whether someone wants to get rich off of it.
