For many years I got my students to do an sna of soccer games.
I suggested the 22 players and the two goals as vertices. The degrees
of the goals then give the final score.
Note the important check that the in-degree must equal the out-degree
except the player that kicks off and the player that ends up.
Techniques that worked well: Centrality (degree and betweenness) but
the cleverest was developing a structure matrix that reflected a playing
style. Eg 4-4-2 and then using QAP to see if the team played to the
Note collecting the data is a nigtmare even for recorded games.
