Scorecasting: The Hidden Influences Behind How Sports Are Played and Games Are Won 9179071-large

I've just ordered this. The book picks apart football, American football, hockey, baseball and basketball to reveal such subjects as what "home advantage" really means and the factors like coaches who make the tough decisions that pay off and how the fans at a certain game can get inside the refs head and "blur" his judgement.

One of the points used for fearless decisions by a coach in football is that Jose Mourinho went unbeaten at home for just over 9 years (150 games in all comps) with Porto, Chelsea, Inter and Real Madrid.

I'm looking forward to getting stuck into to it. Reading some reviews show that for the US sports, being Americans, they use the terms fans of the individual sports would know.
