    Premiership football analytics (#mcfcanalytics)

    Andy Cotgreave

      Manchester City and OptaPro have teamed up and shared an awesome dataset of every premier league player's activity from the last season. The data was released today, and you can get your hands on it here: http://www.mcfc.co.uk/The-Club/MCFC-Analytics


      I just spend a brief while playing with it. The potential for analytics fun is endless. I've done some quick analysis that allows you to compare some stats of the top 20 scorers from last year. For example, did you know that Wayne Rooney conceded only 2 offsides last year, whereas Robin van Persie gave away 44?



      What else can you do with this data? This dataset is perfectly suited to Tableau Public.
