A network theory analysis of football strategies

We showcase in this paper the use of some tools from network theory to describe the strategy of football teams. Using passing data made available by FIFA during the 2010 World Cup, we construct for each team a weighted and directed network in which nodes correspond to players and arrows to passes. The resulting network or graph provides a direct visual inspection of a team's strategy, from which we can identify play pattern, determine hot-spots on the play and localize potential weaknesses. Using different centrality measures, we can also determine the relative importance of each player in the game, the `popularity' of a player, and the effect of removing players from the game.

А что, это ещё не было сделано?
Мне казалось, что при подготовке всяких футбольных симуляторов уже многое проанализировано.

Я помню, лет десять назад в Times печатались отчеты статистиков из Ворвика с анализом команд премьер-лиги с точки зрения их взаимных шансов. Не удалось выгуглить, зато нашел сигналку роскошной книжки, изданной в 2008 году Cambridge Scholars: Myths and Facts about Football: The Economics and Psychology of the World’s Greatest Sport. Названия глав там просто замечательные: "Intuitive Physics: Naïve Concepts About the Ball’s Momentum Among Professional Football Players", "The Penalty-Duel and Institutional Design: Is there a Neeskens-Effect?".
