We are now trialling Twelve’s player evaluation system and we would like to give access to fans who would like to blog about their own Premier League team. This access will allow you to log in to our analysis tool and export widgets displaying shots, passes and defensive actions of all of your favourite players.
To get an idea of the outputs you can create take a look at the widgets below. Here is Mesut Özil’s important passes against Manchester United.
And here are De Gea’s saves in the same match.
We also provide analysis of multiple matches. Here are Mohammed Salah’s shots over Liverpool’s previous six matches.
The tools can also be used live during matches to analyse how the game is progressing.
Our model of shots is based on expected Goals, while our model of passing and defence is based on a value we assign to each point on the pitch based on how dangerous it is for the opposition. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be writing more about how the algorithm works. What we’d like just now is to identify amateur bloggers who’d like to try it out and give us feedback.
If you are interested, send an email to david at twelve.football with links to at least three articles you have previously written about your club. Youtubers are also welcome to contact us. But you must be doing it for love of the game and not for commercial reasons.
We look forward to hearing from you.
