Word Cloud created at http://www.jasondavies.com/wordcloud/
Here you can find all the ingenious, fascinating and revolutionary articles of The Game is a Foot... along with the overwhelming majority of ordinary articles.
Articles on here fall into two groups. There are my articles (which are either Sport or Non-Sport) and Guest Articles. If you're interested in contributing a guest article to TGIAF, then please contact me. Any contributions are welcome, and there are no strict rules you need to follow - as long as they're vaguely relevant to the rest of the site then they're welcome. For an idea of the themes covered by TGIAF, there is a Word Cloud at the top of the page taken from the text of all articles up to 25/03/15.
On the right-hand side of this page is a list of recent articles. If you wish to view a full glossary of articles published, along with a quick guide to the key points of each, then check out the Discoveries page. Recently, we have been developing simulators which model a wide range of areas. There are articles available on these, and summary pages in the Simulators section.
I created this website in January 2012, when I was in the final year of an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and its Applications at the University of Stirling. As sport is a huge interest of mine, I thought that sports analysis could be an ideal job to move into, as it would combine my degree with my passion.
After graduating from my degree with First Class Honours the subsequent June, I had an interview with a football analysis company, and I believe the work on this website would have been a huge advantage for me. However just before the interview I was lucky enough to be offered a PhD position with the University of Stirling and the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen, which I accepted. In 2016 I completed my PhD, graduating a year later.
My interest in sport is quite broad. My main source of knowledge is football, since that is the game I have a lifelong interest in, however I have an equally strong passion for cricket and snooker. I also follow tennis, disability sport and athletics avidly, as well as a passing interest in sports such as rugby union and Formula One. Since I herald from the greatest city in the world, Sheffield, I support Wednesday in football and Yorkshire in cricket. I have also inherited support in Liverpool FC.
