Daryl called up Mike Goodman, formerly of ESPN and Grantland, currently of FiveThirtyEight and the Double Pivot Podcast, to talks tactics and analytics.

Mike is really good at talking analysis and stats in an easy-to-understand and entertaining way, so we get into what the US could do and do better, how to get the most out of Christian Pulisic, and could/should the US give wingbacks a try ...

We also talk Expected Goals, explaining what it is and why it exists, and how it can be used to better understand soccer, and look at some tactical trends in the Premier League so far this season.
