Episode 46 - Stat Padding

After Harry Kane bagged himself seven goals in two international games for England this week, we ask, is it his fault that he is put up against such lesser opposition?   In Episode 46, we discuss the principle of “stat padding”, and how players can sometimes create an inflated perception of their ability. At the other end of the scale, we explore the phenomenon of “clutch players” who are more likely to stay calm in the closing stages and decide the game.   And at long last, we dive into the Fanalytcis mailbox once more!   Bio Links:    Clutch player list:;    Clutch visualisation:;  Learn more about your ad choices.
