NEWS Outside the Box: A Statistical Journey through the History of Football to be published

Following the highly successful release of ‘OptaJoe’s Football Yearbook 2016’ last year, Duncan Alexander has written a second book which is set to be published by Century.

‘Outside the Box: A Statistical Journey through the History of Football’ looks to deconstruct never-before stats from Opta, and aims to help us understand further the game that we all love and think we know.

Questions the book seeks to answer include: ‘Why have Liverpool not won the league title for 27 years?’ and ‘Is Lionel Messi really the best player ever to grace the pitch?’

The book will be published in trade paperback on 10th August, in time for the start of the new Premier League season.

You can pre-order the book from Amazon here.
