FIFA Changed their Methodology again…

The stats that I used last time are essentially dead to me.  It’s time to adapt or die.  I will use the slightly altered FIFA rankings from the European qualifying campaigns and I’m finally going to try and collect salary data.  Salary data is tough to get for some of these lower teams so I’m most likely going to have to do some hard core estimating.  If anyone would like to help me collect I will pay.

My Name is Jack Allweil. I grew up in a small town in Michigan. I absolutely loved playing soccer growing up and while I don't play as much these days I still love watching my beloved London based club, Arsenal. After studying mathematics and economics at the University of Michigan I worked as an actuary for various insurers. After getting fired from one job in Charlotte, NC my head went spinning looking for new ideas. I started reading... A lot. Next thing I know Dr. Stefan Szymanski gave me many of his sources for his fantastically written books, Soccernomics and Money and Soccer. My journey to bet on the 2018 Russia World Cup began.
