Prepare to be amazed by some incredible stats and knowledge in this episode of Campbell's Footballs as Duncan Alexander joins me on the podcast. Duncan is a big contributor to Opta Joe and Stats Perform and on the show we discuss what it is like to delve into large amounts of football related data. How does this differ from the science world that I live in? We discuss Duncan's love for Diego Maradona and Paul Gascoigne as well as his love for his beloved Wycombe Wanderers FC. Duncan is also a regular guest on the award-winning Totally Football Show series of podcasts. I ask him what it is like to work with James Richardson and so many high profile European and British journalists?

All this and more good craic on the show which is produced in association with Toby Johnson and Rory Hope Music.
