  1. Been pretty busy today, started out by realising the setup I had shown above wasn't going to work, so had to reorganise the menu system for the competition.After a few hours playing around with new ideas and figuring out the code needed, the menu was ready. I then made a start on the Teams List for each competition. Where the data is available from our provider, each team includes the club logo, the clubs stadium, coach, chairman and twitter account details. This will also link to the individual team information pages once they are complete too.
  2. With the development of the new football centre application for the site progressing, I have made some changes to how it will look to you guys to help make using it easier. To allow for this to happen the current theme is not going to work due to the limitations on the top menu bar. So we are going back to a design that we used on the old Sports262 site, with a side menu bar. This allows the menu to house more links that are going to be required for the new features. I also feel the new theme looks far better than the current, which is a look I haven't much liked due to it being the basic theme that comes with the software and just having a few colours changed. Please note the menu shown in the screenshot will be changed to better suit the needs of the site, rather than a lot of the more useless links currently shown. The new theme will also come with a background picker which provides you with a choice of up to 6 background pictures to choose from. All pictures will be football related, just have to purchase the rights to use them, that will all be done before the release of the new features and theme. On the current site, we provide simple additions such as the league table for your team, fixtures/results for your team and form guide. The new features will provide far more data, it will cover data for Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two, Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup, League Cup, League Trophy. If available each competition will show tables, fixtures/results, list of teams (linked to individual team pages), top scorers, video highlights. Here is the design for the competition page, no data is currently being shown as that is being worked on, but the design is there for the menu system for each competition. I have also had to re-write a fair bit of the code to work with the new design ideas, so far have got the competition, country, seasons, rounds, stages, teams, venues, players and standings data ready to start work on the designs for those pages.
  3. My type....and what type is that? That dont like people who purposely pick on small details just to get a rise out of people. If so you got me in one.
  4. A small update to the league tables, they now include position movement.
  5. If everyone was positive, then that would be pretty boring. Should all the Leyton Orient fans be positive? Or should they all be negative because they are below a certain position in the league? In which case, what position would you regard as the difference to being the point where people become positive or negative? Everyone here is different, they all see things differently. As a Swansea fan, I liked Neil Taylor, however there were many that didn't. I thought Laudrup was one the best thing to happen to us, many didn't. If we all agreed to remain positive, then where would we be now? Should we have remained positive about Bob Bradley, and continue to watch our team under-perform? Or was our negativity a good thing that helped in his removal and the appointment of Paul Clement, which has resulted in a team performing much better than they had been. In BB's case, it is not nice to see him lose his job, but sometimes you have to cut your losses. A forum is a place for people to air those opinions, whether we agree with them or not, is up to you. So rather than telling people to "shut the f**k up with their negativity", offer your positive view point.
  6. I found a fantastic little word that describes a lot of your recent posts. pettifogging Just thought I would join in with you. Be on your side. I apologise to the others for that.
  7. Having completed grabbing the data for the application, I have made a start on the front end that you guys will get to see. First up is the replacement for the league tables. currently when you go to the Tables from the main menu, you are given the league table for your team, in this case, the League Two table. The new application being built will give you all league tables that are present in the package we have with our data provider. Here is a short video to show you how it looks so far.
  8. Just a slight update, have been working hard on the back end of the application and re-writing a lot of the code so that it takes away 1 of the steps I had originally created to help speed things up in the whole process. Originally it was set up so that a dummy site would grab all the data from the provider, and then each individual site would grab the data from the dummy sites database. This meant it limited the calls made to the providers server as we are limited to 1000 calls per hour for each data stream. Now we have cut out the need for the dummy site (for the majority of the data) so now each individual site will be calling the data directly from the provider, all this has been setup to keep the calls under 1,000 per hour. So if we were to have 92 teams, I could make 1 call every 6 minutes for Player data, and still come under the limit in place. There will still be need for the dummy server to store data such as livescores, as if we ever do get to the 92 individual sites, we would be limited to 6 minute calls (92 calls every 6 minutes = 920 per hour) - so by using the dummy site for things such as livescores, we can get updates every minute. As it would only be 1 call every 1 minute, so a total of 60 calls an hour. Each site would then be able to call on the dummy site every minute, resulting in 5,520 calls per hour. We could however look at increasing our allowed limit by expanding our custom plan with the provider, but as things stand ther seems little point. So the back end is basically everything needed to run the application in the Admin Panel, things such as settings, tasks and so on. It is quite complex, as there is not only information to grab for individual teams, such as squad lists, match stats, commentaries, events and videos, but also data to grab for all teams, tables, matches, and so on. There are then settings for the livescores, and what data we want it to grab, there is a hell of a lot going on and a lot of data being grabbed. So we have to look carefully at what data is grabbed for all teams and what is only limited to the teams forum. As things stand we cannot get all data for all teams for each site, there is just far too much data to send across, on our dummy site that is currently set up, we have over 120,000 commentaries, 30,000 events, 80,000 match lineups (1 for each player in a lineup, so for first 11 and subs for each team, you get 36 records), 3,500 matches, 8,000 players, 2,000 videos, and the way its currently grabbing data would just require it to check through it all, and it results in tasks timing out. So we are only grabbing certain data that are about that team, in this case any thing that is relevant to Luton, is stored. So here is a glimpse at the Admin Panel and how its progressing. I have completed the players task and the matches task. I am soon to make a start on the head 2 head, although not sure exactly how this one will work yet, or if I can get it to work as I need it too. There is also an update coming from the provider shortly, which is looking at adding new data streams and also better data. But that itself, is another hurdle, as it will require the rewriting of code to allow for the new/updated data to carry on being stored correctly, but most of the hard work is done, any update will just require tweaks. A list of data currently being stored by the application: Commentaries (individual team only for the time being) Competitions Events (individual team only for the time being) Line Ups (individual team only for the time being) Matches (individual team only for the time being - but looking to include for all teams) Players (individual team only for the time being) Seasons (can look at storing historical data with this in the future) Stats (individual team only for the time being) Teams Venues Videos (match highlight videos, if available) Data streams left to work on: Head 2 Head (individual team only for the time being) Live Scores (this is still something I have to look into what data to store, could include events, line ups, stats and videos) Standings Top Scorers Weather
  9. Since Clement has come in: Palace = Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Taylor Hull = = Naughton, Van Der Horn, Fernandez, Kingsley = CUP Arsenal = Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Kingsley TAYLOR SOLD - OLSSON BROUGHT IN Liverpool = Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson Southampton = Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson Man City = Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson Leicester = Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson Chelsea = Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson Burnley = Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson So not including the cup (expected changes) - also do a straight swap for Taylor/Olsson 0 changes after previous match = 51 change after previous match = 22 changes after previous match = 03 changes after previous match = 04 changes after previous match = 0 Appearances: RB - Naughton = 8 CB - Fernandez = 8 CB - Mawson = 8 LB - Taylor/Olsson = 7 LB - Kingsley = 1
  10. As an example, Bradleys games, here are his defensive selections. All are Premier League games btw, so no excuse of changing for cup games. Arsenal = Naughton, Fernandez, Amat, Taylor Watford = Naughton, Van Der Horn, Mawson, Kingsley Stoke = Naughton, Van Der Horn, Mawson, Taylor Man U = Rangel, Van Der Horn, Mawson, Kingsley Everton = Naughton, Fernandez, Amat, Taylor Palace = Naughton, Fernandez, Amat, Taylor Spurs = Naughton, Van Der Horn, Amat, Taylor Sunderland = Rangel, Mawson, Amat, Taylor West Brom = Rangel, Mawson, Amat, Taylor M'Boro = Rangel, Mawson, Amat, Taylor West Ham = Rangel, Van Der Horn, Mawson, Kingsley How can you set up defensively when all your doing is swapping and changing. The best we had was 3 consecutive games with 0 changes in defence. 0 changes after previous match = 3 1 change after previous match = 2 2 changes after previous match = 2 3 changes after previous match = 1 4 changes after previous match = 2 Appearances: RB - Naughton = 6 RB - Rangel = 5 CB - Fernandez = 3 CB - Amat = 7 CB - Van Der Horn = 5 CB - Mawson = 7 LB - Taylor = 8 LB - Kingsley = 3
  11. Bob Bradley at his time with Swansea kept changing the defence. We all know a solid defence is based on games played with each other and an understanding that comes from playing together. He never let us settle. We shipped 29 goals in 11 games, picking up just 8 points, scoring 15 goals. So a GD of -14. The guy didn't have a clue what he was doing in regards to formation and selections. Well if he did, it was definitely not a formation or selection that would work with Swansea. His formation's and selection's is what resulted in poor performances and his eventual sacking. We were playing utter garbage at the time. Clement came in, and already he has got his formation and selections under control, we are finally getting some continuity within the team and we are actually playing as a team, rather than individuals. Although there is still work to be done defensively, as we have conceded 17 goals in 8 games, we have got better up front, scoring 14, and picking up a much better 15 points.
