According to Hope, Sheffield Utd and Birmingham City are interested in Clark, while Reading are interested in Hendrick.

    I've been thinking of a tutorial on how some of the stats I post are created for a little while, and made these two episodes over the last few weeks.

    Episode 1 - Introduction to the data
    How the player and game data is stored, and accessed


    Episode 2 - Losses, Wins, and Substitutes
    Explaining how three different stats were created using the data

    • That Stephen Kenny is the first Ireland manager to lose two games to teams ranked outside the top 90
    • That the winning margin against Scotland was the largest against a higher ranked side in a competitive game since rankings were introduced
    • That Alan Browne's goal against Belgium was the fastest by a substitute since James Collins V Serbia




    They are both a little technical, so some knowledge of programming is assumed, but I'd hope they're both still relatively accessible.
    Not sure how many more of these I'll work on, but I'm not going to go through three stats in a single episode again!

    I watched some of that.

    For someone whose only experience with coding is trying to help their kid with their Python homework, you come across as at least very patient, if not a full-blown saint.

    Thanks, don't think anyone had ever told me that before!
    A few of my friends' kids have started getting into coding so I came up with this

    Stretching the thread title a bit, I know, but I recognised Callum O'Dowda on the BBC coverage of the Commonwealth Games; he was supporting sister Jade (England), who won the long jump in the Women's Heptathlon and is second after 5 events. Mark Kinsella's daughter Alice won a gold for England in the gymnastics.

    Interesting - didn't realise the connection. She's up against Dundalk's Kate O'Connor (nominally representing NI as we're not in the commonwealth - she has a connection to Newry also) in that event. Both in with a chance of a medal - though like many events in the Commonwealth Games it's a really shallow field compared to the proper athletics championships.
