This document documents the approach the researcher has taken in order to address the subject of the project. The project will look to gather multiple datasets in relation to football clubs’ transfer dealings and analyse them in order to see which clubs struggled with the decreased earnings and which clubs could continue as normal, in terms of transfers.

This document intends to help to reader understand what was done for the duration of the project and how the techniques used helped to achieve the project goal.

December 2020 marked the midpoint presentation, delivered virtually, of the project. Some of the techniques needed to fully execute this project would only be taught in semester two which starts in February 2021.

May 2021 marks the completion of the project. Datasets were taken from an open GitHub repository which were used to carry out an analysis of the transfers in the Premier League and the Championship. The project was able to conclude how each of these leagues were affected by Covid in relation to transfers and also make a prediction as how clubs in these leagues will fare for the following season.
