The Beautiful Game
I'm not a big soccer fan, so I can't say whether these mappings of player movements by Susken Rosenthal are a useful way to analyze a match. But the results are truly beautiful. (Thanks to my Morningstar colleague Pouya Ahmadi for the tip!)

Mike Deal's soccer charting system is also worth a look -- I find it preferable to the graphics the WSJ has been running during the World Cup.



Throughout my career at Morningstar, the Chicago-based investment research firm, I've used creative language and visual elements to explain complex investment information and ideas. This is a personal site--all opinions expressed here are my own.
