14/15 Attack & Defence

June 7, 2015

This article is one for the statos and the leading edge worriers about the beautiful game.

(With thanks to the Experimental 3-6-1 website for the information.)

It includes a series of graphs that attempt to analyse performance.

The data is based upon the Sky Bet League 2 teams in 2014/15 season.

The  information related to Shrewsbury Town and Cheltenham Town is illuminating.

Where would Bristol Rovers have fitted into the this picture based on our record last year?

Over to you Mr. S. Tato.

While I’m really happy that the scatter graphics I’ve been churning out for the past four years continue to be so well-received, I’ve long wished for them to look a bit prettier. During last season, @bootifulgame and I produced an experimental interactive version which looked much nicer and used striped “contours” to better distinguish which teams were performing better than others.

It’s taken me a while to get around to it, but I’ve adapted the code to produce a static version that I’m pretty happy with. You can click any of the graphics to bring up a full-sized version in a new tab.
