A series where I attempt to not only understand but also do fun things with machine learning — with strangers on the Internet.

While the cool kids are playing football with their feet, we’re going to play football on spreadsheets

Welcome back! If this is the first time you’ve come upon this series, please check out the first article in the series by clicking me. There we discussed regression and used it to build a model that could predict a team’s position based on basic information.

In today’s session, we’re going to get into classification by building a model that can classify a player’s position based on information about a player. All very cool stuff, I know…


A series where I attempt to not only understand, myself, but also do fun things with machine learning — with strangers on the Internet.

You are Bart and I am Lisa. Or the other way works as well. We’re both doing some cool stuff.

This is a series where I attempt to do cool things, practical or not, to learn the concepts of machine learning. While you need to understand the math behind the machine-learning, in this series — I will be doing the hard work for you. I will prepare a Google Colab Notebook and provide you a dataset to practice and run the models with.

All you have to do is learn some of the basic level things…

While other kids have lived in certain neighborhoods and certain regions for a big part of their life, my childhood has been a whirlwind — from one city to another. …


Looking at finding a way to find, analyze, and evaluate clinical finishers in the beautiful game.

Erling Haaland, the Dortmund striker who is the face of the Clinical Finishing Model

Ever since Erling Haaland became a common-place name in football, the analysts have looked at every possible way to analyze him. From movement runs to striking abilities, Erling Haaland has been sliced and stretched in every way possible. One of those manners has been his /clinical finishing/.

In case you forgot or don’t know about how good he is, just watch this video:

A lot of analysis in this area of the…
