I read this tweet, basically saying that Brentford are known for using statistical models when buying players. Updated: I now also read Tom Worvilles excellent series on Brentford here.
Brentford bought Lasse Vibe from IFK Göteborg today. So it made me curious, I just had to check Lasse Vibes ExpG/G for the two last seasons to see if this is a signing influenced or based on statistical models.
And especially if you look at last season, buying a player with a better ExpG/G ratio from Allsvenskan feels impossible!
This season shows more normalized values.
Still, feels like Brentford has done some homework 🙂
