SWING YOUR SWORD is the first ever book by one of the most fascinating and successful coaches in sports today. A lover of the game who started creating formations and drawing his own plays as a kid, Leach took his Texas Tech Red Raiders to numerous bowl games, achieving the #2 slot in national rankings and being voted 2008 Coach of the Year before being unceremoniously fired at the end of the 2009 season. The scandalous nature of his dismissal created a media frenzy and began a personal battle between Leach and his accusers that remains unresolved.

<b>'Loved it鈥?I would recommend it to all of you.' <i>BBC 5 Live, Jazmin Sawyers</i></b><br /><b><i><br /></i></b><b><i>'Mind Games </i>is accessible to anyone who wants to delve into the mind of some of the world's sporting greats, and gain an insight into how they have dealt with issues such as pressure, success, failure and injury ...' Chrissie Wellington OBE</b><br /><br />It's well known that to reach the top in elite sport, you need to have spent years honing and perfecting your physical ability. However this is only part of the template required to win 鈥?the other half is about mind games. <br /> <br />Throughout her career as one of the world's top athletes, Annie Vernon struggled with existential questions about the purpose of sport in our comfortable, first-world society: Why do we do it? What is it in our psyche that makes us push ourselves to the limit? What allows us to mentally overcome the physical pain?<br /> <br />Now retired from competition, Olympic silver medallist and world champion rower Annie Vernon has decided to look for answers to these questions. Drawing on her personal experiences and interviews with some of the best coaches, athletes and psychologists from across the world of sport 鈥?including Lucy Gossage, Dave Scott, Katherine Grainger, Matthew Pinsent, Brian Moore, Brian Ching and Dr Steve Peters 鈥?Annie discovers the secrets of how athletes train their brains in order to become world beaters.<br /> <br />Annie debunks the myth that elite performers are universally cool, calm and brimming with self-assurance. Through exploring the bits on the inside that nobody can see, Annie instead creates a new understanding of what it takes to be successful in sport and uncovers that, in fact, an elite athlete is not that different from you and me. It's simply a question of mind games.

<p>The Expected Goals method is football鈥檚 best kept secret. The metric gives unparalleled insight into which teams and players are performing at the highest level.<br /><br />Professional gamblers have used Expected Goals to make millions through football betting. Club scouts have used Expected Goals to identify hidden gems in the transfer market. And the media have recently started using Expected Goals to offer more profound insight in their broadcasts.<br /><br />Despite this, most ordinary fans still don鈥檛 understand what the Expected Goals method is 鈥?or appreciate the significant impact that it is set to have on the sport in coming years.<br /><br />Expected Goals (otherwise known as xG) was originally conjured up by a small corner of the online football analytics community. It didn鈥檛 take long for professional gamblers to begin using xG to predict match outcomes. These bettors utilised the Expected Goals method to turn over hundreds of millions of pounds from the bookmakers.<br /><br />Before long, football clubs had caught on to the ground-breaking insight given by xG. Brentford FC were leaders in this field, managing to assemble a Play-Off-reaching squad on a shoe-string budget. In the last five years, the small West London side have turned over more than 攏100m in transfer profit from their use of the Expected Goals method in player recruitment.<br /><br />More recently, the Expected Goals method has been adopted by the media as a form of insight. Fans are finally catching on to the pioneering means of football analysis.
