One week to go!

So its almost upon us, and I’m way behind. I’m starting to re-work the data model and re build the dashboards to give me more stats. The idea is to have a team page which shows stats which can then be drilled down to the player level. The landing page will look like this. Note it is not finished.

The teams page will allow you to see the data from all four English leagues. This will give the option to look at stats for betting maybe. Remember its only the bookies that make the money 🙂

I did find a bug in the Footy data which meant I had to reload all the data fortunately I had built this functionality into my system, phew!

The Player data will give you stats to help with the Fantasy leagues. Over the coming days expect more updates as I get the data to where I need it.

So who is going to choose which players? What about the new players, Pepe for Arsenal, 35 goals in 74 games in Ligue 1 could be a good choice. I might take a risk on him.

The first game is almost over

The first game of the new season is almost over. United winning 2-0, correction 2-1, Vardy just scored.

I wondered how many people had actually selected Shaw. He scored the second so I will be carefully watching his stats over the coming days to see how many transfer him in.

As of now (21.45) this is the stats, he is one of the popular United defenders even though the ownership is less than 4%.

 

Looking at the averages he normally averages less than 60 pts a season, I think this season will be better.

I never panic in the first few weeks as that is the time to find out who is starting well, mind you I have used my wildcard in the first 3 weeks over the last few seasons so maybe I do panic.

A quick look at the ownership stats for today and especially during the game. It seems harry Maguire is losing ownership whilst Luke Shaw is gaining.

 

Anyway the first game is over, United won 2-1, bring on the next 9 fixtures.
