This month’s off-topic post delves into the world of Football Manager – a game I’ve found myself playing again in the last couple of weeks. Here I attempt to explain why the much-loved series has always been greater than the sum of its parts.
I had a week off recently, so for a bit of fun I embarked on my most ambitious and most complex Python project yet: to scientifically (kind of) predict the outcome of the 2018/19 Premier League season based on the results so far. Those who are particularly fond of buzzwords might even call the result machine learning, although I wouldn’t myself.
Welcome to what might be a new regular post series, which I’m going to nickname “Stuff I only posted to Instagram and haven’t had a chance to write about yet”. Basically, I’m making an effort to make more of my weekends, and if I start writing about it I’m probably more likely to find the motivation to get out of my flat and do stuff.
