Nos Audietis, Episode 73: Soccer statistics roundtable

Sounder at Heart's Sidereal, Zach Slaton of The Beautiful Numbers Game and Devin Pleuler and Matt Doyle of MLSsoccer.com take part in a soccer analytics roundtable.

With the Seattle Sounders taking a week off, we decided to try something a little different on the show. We invited some of the leading voices in the world if soccer statistics and analysis to have a roundtable discussion.

Joining me on the show were Sounder at Heart's Sidereal, Zach Slaton of The Beautiful Numbers Game and Devin Pleuler and Matt Doyle of MLSsoccer.com.

Here's a little more about who they are:
