Garbage in, garbage out - reading list edition
Note: every once in a while I share a couple of things I read with co-workers. I sometimes post them here as an archive.
Intro: I'd like to share a couple of websites and youtube channels that hopefully contribute to my goal of reading less voetbalzone-articles, and more articles that actually teach me something. Maybe it's useful, maybe it isn't - feel free to share this email if useful, of delete it without reading in - whatever floats your boat.
