Prior to last week's vacation I cranked out a number of posts at Forbes on Manchester City's Performance Analysis department. The first two were a transcription of an interview with the club's head of performance analysis, Gavin Fleig. The nearly 6,000 words he and I exchanged provided a good bit of information on how the club uses analytics from the youngest youth sides all the way up to the senior first team. The third post outlined how the recently launched MCFC Analytics site is attempting to jump start the public sphere soccer analytics movement by making a good bit of Opta data freely available to the public that was previously available only via a fee. Have a look at all three posts if you're interested in understanding how last year's Premier League champions use analytics to stay on top and give something back to the soccer analytics movement at the same time.
