A Decade of Premier League Football

The English Premier League is BACK!

Before we get over-excited, let's have a look at the past. Here is a shiny app to visualise some stats from last ten seasons. It is my first attempt at developing data-driven sports stories with R, Shiny and Shiny Dashboard. Those stories ain't new, but I had always wanted to visualise the data instead of just reading them from articles.


It includes the last-minute title decider in 2011-2012 season (I am a red devil. That. Still. Hurts.) ...


... as well as the survival race.


Enjoy. Code is on GitHub.

Got some interesting football stories in mind? Free feel to give me a shout and see if we can create some more data viz.


What's Next?


I am actually more interested in predicting match outcomes and fantasy football. In the coming months, I am going to include more predictive modelling stuff.

On the other hand, I am also working on some new ggplot2 geom (e.g. geom_football, geom_basketball) for sports data visualisation. Hopefully, I can give you an update on this soon.
