I found this article to be quite interesting, even though I do not follow soccer/football (fĂștbol?). I find this sort of data analytic to be fascinating. It almost seems like art, what data sets to pull from, how to compare it, etc. How would one, other than brushing up on statistics, get into this sort of field? It seems much more interesting than basic web development.

Coursera has a Data Science specialization track by Johns Hopkins university. That would be a good place to start.
