The rest of the fanalytics survey 2015/16

A while back I did a survey of people’s favourite ‘fanalysts’ (broad term meaning people doing analytical work in statistical, tactical, etc fields and, broadly, not being paid for it). The results came out in time for the start of the new Premier League season, but I only wrote up answers to the questions of who were people’s favourite analysts, tweeters, articles, and ones to watch.

There were another few questions in the survey too, and I’m going to finally get around to writing them up quickly here.
