I agree, we have given plenty of slack and asked kindly. It's not too hard to get on with others. If you have something that works, that's great but constantly drowning out threads endlessly is killing genuine discussion.

Is the solution to give Jonny his own thread that he confines his posts to. Other forum members then have the choice to read it or not. Any posts he makes in other threads automatically deleted.

Any chance of an updated data set, but with yellow cards as well? Or is that data not available?

Thanks again!

I'm working on this at the moment. Not been able to find a reliable source for yellow card timings though.
At the moment i'm using the csv's from football-data.co.uk. Which has shots, shots on target, yellows, fowls, reds, goals, result (all for HT and FT) as well as odds for 1x2, o2.5,u2.5 from Pinnacle and an average from a selection of oter bookies. Theres no timings though, just totals for HT/FT. But it'll do for now.

Oodles of data... Tooltip pop-ups with reds/yellows and goals.

Thanks for this. I've taken a quick look and it doesn't seem to be designed in a webscraper friendly way. Seems awkward to drill down in to stats and as yet I'm not able to find an easy to use underlying data source/api. Will check again tomorrow though.

Ah! From the awesome work you've done with the HKJC data I just assumed you'd got a good handle on this web scraping malarkey.
I've had a quick play with python/BeautifulSoup and some chrome extensions but I've concluded web scraping is a young man's game. :D

... or woman's...

Yeah I've scraped a good few websites. But in my past experiences, working with awkward sites involves a lot of spaghetti code, and then they end up getting updated by the developer.
It's always easier to try and find the data source they're using, rather than scrape the full page.

Hkjc was an exception because it was a quick fix and the site was actually pretty easy. Football-data provides up to date CSV files, which can be easily manipulated.

I'll take another look at the above site tomorrow though:)

Also if no-one has mentioned yet, corner data would be super useful, even if just number of corners at HT and number of corners at FT!

Corners hold a relationship with goals. So if you plot goals you also plot corners.
