European permutations: 10-13 Feb 2017


How these work Each graphic shows the highest and lowest possible positions that each club can occupy after the forthcoming round of fixtures. I’ve drawn lines under the Champions League spots, mid-table and the last spot above the relegation zone on both “axes” for ease of reference. These graphics are explained here, but in a nutshell I crunch through every possible

European permutations: 3-7 Feb 2017


My permutations graphics often get shared on Reddit and I’ve seen a few comments on there asking why they aren’t produced for other top leagues, so I thought I’d kick out versions for the main European divisions and see whether there’s enough interest to generate them regularly.

Visualising the 2015/16 Eredivisie fixtures

Eredivisie fixture map 2015-16

The 2015/16 Eredivisie fixtures were released over the weekend, so If you haven’t seen this before, what I’ve done is taken an average of leading bookmakers’ title odds (as a proxy for each club’s “strength”) and then divided the clubs four categories based on the bookies’ implied ranking. The categories aim to divide the clubs into four relatively equal-sized groups based on the range of odds they

Holland Def Eff 2015-03-28

The lull created by the international break is as good an opportunity as any to crank out some updated attack and defence scatter graphics for the major European leagues, looking here at the Eredivisie. There are two graphics: the first showing attacking performance and the second defensive performance. Both are based on simple shot data and give a high-level view of how each club is
