SPM 217: Statistics have growing power, but are we using them responsibly‪?‬ Set Piece Menu Football Podcast

    • Sports

The football: We apply the 'Peter Parker Principle' to football statistics, asking if the growing power of data should be wielded in a more responsible way. Can a player's performance be measured by anything other than measurable metrics, and if not, how can there still be room for artistry, and other more intangible, non-data-driven elements of the game?

The food: We are asking for your suggestions of local food banks that you'd like us to mention, as while we're unable to eat together, some are finding it hard to eat at all, and we'd like you to use us to promote a local cause that's doing work you admire. Let us know at setpiecemenu@gmail.com

And we have another listener soccer story, so send us yours and we could be reading it out on a future show!
