MLS GK Pass Distribution

Took a good look at goalie passing distribution over at Massive Report. The post idea was spurred on by Alex O of Tempo-Free Soccer. Give him a follow.

My results confirmed what many think: playing possession from the back is smarter than just booting it up the field. Seems like common sense but a lot of MLS teams still don't get it. There is a strong relationship between playing it short and winning.

Here is bonus data I didn't link to over at Massive Report, HERE and the image in this post wasn't used because I felt it was a sad looking Gruenebaum and there was no reason for it. Like the image though, so it goes up here.
