With physicists seemingly becoming a staple of any Premier League analytics team, The Analyst thought they should get one of their own. Having made the switch from The Early Universe to 3 p.m. on a Saturday, Jon aims to combine his numerical background with an illustrious football career. He once made an appearance on the Fratton Park pitch, though some would argue it doesn’t count if you were a child mascot with Lomana LuaLua’s arm around your shoulder. For The Analyst, he helps produce the statistics and graphics that fuel our content while furthering the introduction of advanced metrics. You may see from Jon an occasional Brighton piece – if he’s not in despair about a recent performance. He’s also responsible for analyzing The Analyst through our site analytics, which is about as meta as it gets.
