    • Cheers, commitment has been the hardest part… Looking back at the mare of a season that I had (it was my worst season ever), I’m a little surprised myself how diligent I was with respect to this blog🙂

      • Yeah, blogs are more work than most people realize. I wonder just how many dead ones are floating around cyberspace.

        • Sorry, not going to calculate that🙂
          Yeah… The biggest challenge for me is the dependence on FPL schedule, i.e. the need to be at specific times at home awake and ready to run scripts and macros and upload the results. FPL timing fitted rather well my real life schedule this season, but it’s still a burden that binds and impacts real life, which isn’t good😦 If I keep doing this next season, I’ll have to find a way to deal with this problem…

          • Good one, I had that coming.

            If you give it up next season there will be lots of disappointed but understanding folks on FFS. When I first became a regular there I used to just post something like “Has the stats guy posted the averages yet?” Then someone would post the number and mention the name of the site. So finally I thought I’d actually do the work of cutting and pasting it and having a look-see. Now I’m one of the folks who checks this site and reports the numbers to the unwashed masses, and gets thanked for it.🙂 Now I think your blog has people conditioned to expect the pre- gameweek data an hour before first match and the results within 45 minutes of the end of each game day.

            Have a great off-season.

  1. Just wanted to say thanks for a brilliant job compiling these stats. I only came across your blog about GW33, and have looked forward to finding out the 10K avg after each GW, as it gives a more accurate guide as to whether or not I will climb the overall table. The other stats have proven useful too and I hope you are able to continue next season, FPL Discovery has become one of my favourite FPL resources.

    Also you mention in your about me page that you compile the stats using a bit of basic JavaScript and VBA is there any resource that you would recommend for a total beginner who wanted to learn to do similar things to what you do with FPL stats?

    Thanks again.

    • Cheers.

      Yeah, I use JS to pull data and VBA to compile stats and generate HTML code. But I’m afraid I can’t help you with the resources for beginners… I’m not a native English speaker, and most resources that I know are in my native language…

      But seriously, just try google or ask this on some computer geeks forum, there must be plenty of good resources over the English segment of the Internet.

      Also, before learning JavaScript, you’ll need to get an idea of how HTML and CSS work, otherwise JS won’t make much sense…
