Minute-by-minute table: Vanarama Conference

Minute-by-minute table: Vanarama Conference

Following a successful trial earlier this season, I’ve produced an animated minute-by-minute league table for the Conference. The way it works is as follows: Each graphic cycles through every club in descending order of their final league position (on an infinite loop with each frame lasting 2 seconds). The line shows what the highlighted club’s league position … Continue reading

Minute-by-minute: top flight tables

Following on from yesterday’s successful test (read: no significantly hurtful abuse received) and today’s Football League versions, I’ve built animated GIF versions of minute-by-minute tables for the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga and Serie A: The way these work is as follows: Each graphic cycles through every club in a division in descending order of their … Continue reading

Minute-by-minute: Football League tables

Following on from yesterday’s successful test (read: no significantly hurtful abuse received), I’ve built animated GIF versions of minute-by-minute tables for all 3 Football League divisions. The way these work is as follows: Each graphic cycles through every club in a division in descending order of their current league position (on an infinite loop with … Continue reading

An experiment: minute-by-minute league table

An experiment: minute-by-minute league table

A few seasons ago I tried to explore how league tables would look if matches finished earlier, and ended up putting together an animated league table which cycled through each scenario from a 1st minute to 90th minute finish. The problem was that having 90 frames of animation made it quite a ponderous experience and there was … Continue reading

Second season performance

Following my last post, where I looked at how bad Wigan’s performances have been compared to last season (when they finished 5th with 73 points), one of Denmark’s (probably) few Sheffield Wednesday fans, Peter Løhmann’s response: @experimental361 A sign of the compressed differences in and lack of quality in the Championship? Margins are very fine; see also #swfc … Continue reading

Non-league – visual 2012/13 season summaries

I’m on holiday at the moment and therefore only catching up intermittently with football news, but one pleasing item to eventually catch my eye was BT Sport’s agreement to screen some Conference games next season. It reminded me that I hadn’t published final versions of the non-league visualisations for 2012/13, and as I’ve missed blogging … Continue reading

Visual tables for the Football League

I saw a tweet yesterday evening from @sportingintel which utilised the fantastic Cann Table method of visually separating teams in the league table by the number of points won. This provoked me to unearth and complete one of my many half-finished projects, which takes this a step further to correct for teams having played different numbers … Continue reading

Video: Minute-by-minute tables

Video: Minute-by-minute tables

A surprisingly popular aside last season was an animated look at how the Championship league table would be different if matches ended at specific minutes, so I’ve brought this up to date, refined it and expanded it to cover all 3 divisions. The video below advances time minute-by-minute, so it starts off showing how the … Continue reading

A quick look at Total Shots Ratio

A quick look at Total Shots Ratio

After some decidedly mixed yet encouraging results while using my data for predictive purposes, I’ve been doing some reading about how other analytical bloggers have approached this. I was interested to read about Total Shots Ratio (TSR), particularly in this post by James Grayson, and its ability to predict future performance. What I like about it is … Continue reading
