The Forest from the Trees: A post for the stats nerds


#601

Trevor had me at Langford being elite last season.


#602

I made one


#603

Is that Joey?


#604

My edit would have been adjusting Allround ■■■■ Trucks to Allround ■■■■ Bloke, and coloring that zone in heavily, but this one is pretty good too!


#605

John Coleman would be a single dot in the middle of Forward (Elite)


#606

lol very good


#607

How the hell did you make that haha, are you a photoshop guru? I never sent you a template.

Looks bang on though.


#608

The colours suck, sorry. I didn’t put much time into making it pretty. I will try and make it nice tonight.

So its not necessarily about performance, or predictions, its mostly about finding similar players and tracking career progression.


#609

To be fair, with 16 categories, you can’t just use a colorbrewer palette, so I don’t think you’ve done too bad a job considering time constraints!


#610

I am actually not looking forward to making it better haha. Set1 for the record.


#611

Include Parish and Heppell if you can TB


#612


#613

I thought Dyse would have plotted as a rebounding defender or outside mid in year 1.


#614

Literally looks vanilla :rofl:


#615

Can’t work out the colours lol

Parish = midfielder attacking?
Hepps = no idea


#616

Attacking Mid for Darcy, Elite Midfielder for dyse.


#617

Thanks


#618

It would be interesting if it could be married to a heat map as that might explain what is expected with where he is.


#619

I get that, but you do have Elite and Poor section so there must be some element of performance assessment? If so have you tried reducing the categories to simplify?


#620

Yes I have a simple map with forward, back, midfield defender that I use for other things. The categories are subjective - I went through every class and labelled it. They need work.
