    Euro 2008: Network analysis

    As we did 4 years ago, it's the time to make a network analysis of the Euro 2008 soccer tournament. Fortunately, full passes and intercepts statistics are being published; unfortunately, it's not done per match; it will not be difficult to extract per match stats via differential analysis, I guess. For the time being, I have created a a git repo with code that scrapes the page and downloads and distills player-per-player pass stats; more stuff will have to be done: put in in a format that can be understood by some network analysis program, and do the actual stats.
    Our target is to try and find which network measure is a good predictor for match outcome, and, eventually, to predict which team will be the winner based on that. And publish it eventually in some congress or journal, obviously.

    If you want to commit code to the repo, please sign in GitHub and send me your ID. Good luck!

    Hi JJ, this post make me want to learn Perl. :)
    I myself have posted a couple of 2010 FIFA World Cup from Network Analysis perspective. But, it was time consuming to get the data from FIFA website. Can Perl be used to extract data from FIFA website? Specifically the one that can only be accessed once we click on the plus(+) sign. For example:

    If it's there, it can be extracted. If I have the time today, I'll try to do it. I have posted analysis for worldcup in my Spanish blog. Thanks for the link, will take a look.
    Learning Perl, anyways, is a fun and easy thing to do...
