    Brighton's Moneyball Window


    14 Not allowed!
    Interesting article:

    "If exploiting inefficiencies is the motto of a real Moneyball team, then Brighton’s summer transfer window was as Moneyball as it gets. One such inefficiency is the clamour for Premier League experience. Theory goes that a player who has already performed for one team in the league is more likely to replicate that than if he came from another league. While Championship or Austrian Bundesliga players are indeed likely to perform less well than in the Premier League, this effect is often as unpredictable as it is intuitive."

    "Brighton are uninterested in the lack of value in the domestic market, and have actively bought from the European market where there is a higher bang for your buck. According to Transfermarkt, Swansea City have spent roughly £45million this window, receiving three first team players permanently and two on loan. Brighton, however, have only spent roughly £42million, but have signed eight first-team players on permanent deals, as well as taking two players on loan."

      I like the dig at Paul Merson in the article.

      Friday's team sheet?

      An interesting article to read.
      A positive view on the Albion, let down by a mention of the lush, that is Paul Merson.
      I like the way it describes the Albion as not being scared to venture beyond our shores to purchase European talent, not be held to ransom in the UK market.

      The club approach isn't 'moneyball' as per the A's, it's just simple economics.

      Every step of the way. the club has lead us to believe Tony has been priced out of the relevant market, it found itself in.
      So the club has had to look elsewhere, in locations where the market is on a par with the Albion's buying expectations.

      This.
      Albion are different, have bucked the trend, not followed in any set football club pattern.
      Fan owning and running the club, not afraid to make hard decisions.
      We would be pretty boring if we stuck to a predictable plan.

      How about Ryan? I don't know the going rate of keepers, but was surprised how expensive he was.
