In this week’s edition of the LFC Delaware podcast we are joined by freelance writer Andrew Beasley, of the Twitter Handle @BassTunedTo Red. We talk about the increasing use of data to drive decisions over the last 10 years – where in 2011 a list of of the players with most chances created in a season was a great guide as to who Liverpool would sign (Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing, and Jordan Henderson) to the sophistication of the Michael Edwards team of PhDs.

We talk about how Andrew took his passion for understanding the underlying numbers to a career as a writer and frequent contributor to the Liverpool Echo and Tomkins Times.

We discover who would be the surprising choices to fill in for Bobby Firmino – based on pressing data. And we seek to understand the Reds recent results in the context of this magnificent season (spoiler alert, the underlying numbers aren’t that different). And we talk about next season – no team has achieved 90+ points for 3 years in a row.

Comment, like…. we hope you are enjoying the podcasts!
