Visualising the 2015/16 fixtures

Now that the fixtures have been released for the top four English divisions, I thought I’d crank out updated versions of my fixture difficulty visualisations. The idea behind these is to categorise each club’s fixtures by the strength of their opponent to pick out particularly easy or tricky runs of games over the season. 361 more words

Today the Experimental 3-6-1 blog has published visualisations for the difficulty of League One fixtures. Using the average of the eight leading bookmakers' odds, Ben Mayhew has ranked each club's strength and then provided a visual analysis of the difficulty of the allocated fixtures. As for Swindon Town, Ben's analysis has revealed Town have been dealt a relatively kind run of fixtures. Following a tough start at home to Bradford City, Town's toughest period is likely to be October with games against Peterborough, Millwall, Coventry and Wigan. Of all League One sides, Swindon have one of the 'kindest' festive fixtures (behind Doncaster) against the division's weaker sides. With the re-run of the October fixtures in late February and March, Town will then enjoy a favourable final group of games, playing one of the division's top six sides only once in the last eight games. With any early predictions of the league these must be treated with caution until the shape of the division takes hold from October.
