This season I won´t do a regular season summary of Allsvenskan the way I did last year. Instead I will tell the story about GIF Sundsvall, and introduce a new area chart visualization
Since we have two really unexpected teams in the first two spots of Allsvenskan after 5 rounds I thought it would be interesting to look for some explanations in the numbers.
With most of the European top leagues reaching the half way mark I thought it was time to start looking at my league projections again. Continue reading The how good was my prediction post.
In the last post I looked at the players, now lets look at the teams.

I’ll divide this into two posts. I realized that the last post, summarizing Damallsvenskan became quite slow to load with all plots. So first, lets look at the players in Allsvenskan 2015 from an Expected Goals point of view!

So, to sum the last two posts up. The lower the delta, the fewer rounds to predict – the better the model is at projecting the table positions and how many points a team will get.

Just as we thought that MFF was going to start moving upwards in the Allsvenskan table they lost to BK Häcken. Could it be that they have their mind set on the big game coming up against Celtic?
So, I thought I’d answer two questions in this blog post.
The first was a question from an article in Östersundsposten this week, asking who you think is the best player ever to have played in ÖFK.
The second was a question I got when I wrote about Lasse Vibe and his efficiency in terms of his ratio between expected goals and actual goals.
Now, the answer to the two questions turned out to be related and make one blog post.
