Oh really, what was the summary?

Watched Rio Ferdinand talking about him the other day, it was all very familiar.

That, similar to Allardyce, he was a fairly early adopter of analytics. Sprints etc.

Had a department set up to scout upcoming opponents, interestingly they pointed out he, or his team, would look for not the player that caused problems, but the player who would most often play the passes to the player who causes problems. I guess that kind of work now is called xgchain or xgbuildup? Not 100% familiar with it but it makes sense I guess.

You could say what we did to Jorginho isn’t a million miles away. Shut down the conductor kind of thing.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.
