I'm not going to pretend I'm an expert on soccer analytics ... or simply soccer ... but moneyball isn't really about not spending money. It's more about objective analysis than anything else. There's a bunch of big spending baseball teams that can't win ... i.e. Cubs and Mets ...

That said, I kept an article on soccer analytics from last summer. I read it quickly but it seemed interesting, may you'd want to take a look.
