Lfcgeo - New App

Introducing lfcgeo - a simple web app that maps each Liverpool squad player's shortest journey from their birthplace to Anfield. Try it at https://lfcgeo.herokuapp.com or at http://lfcsorted.lfcgeo.com.

See how most of Liverpool’s first squad in 1892-93 travelled from Scotland to Anfield. Follow Takumi Minamino’s epic 5800 mile journey from Osaka in 2020-21. Zoom in Robbie Fowler's stroll from Toxteth to Anfield in 1995-96.

You can also run the animation from the navbar to see how LFC have Painted The World Red!

For more information check the About tab in the lfcgeo app.







Premrpi - Updated

 I've updated premrpi to use streamlit, a python app development framework.

The premrpi is a simple web app that automatically generates the latest English Premier League table sorted by the Ratings Percentage Index. Give it a try at https://premrpi.herokuapp.com or at http://premrpi.lfcsorted.com.

LFC Goal Machine - Updated

I've updated The LFC Goal Machine to include season 2019-20. You can give it a try at lfcgmR at https://terrydolan.shinyapps.io/lfcgmR or at http://lfcgmR.lfcsorted.com

The LFC Goal Machine is a simple web app that plots a player's age against the league goals that the player scored in a top level season. The app knows about every LFC player who scored a top level league goal in more than one season, from 1894-95 to 2019-20. 

You can use the app to compare players across different seasons and eras. Simply select one or more players and take a look at their graph. 

For some example plots see my blogpost: The LFC Goal Machine - Graphic Detail. Note that this was based on an earlier version of the app. 

For more information check the About tab in the lfcgmR app.

Painting The World Red


The animated map shows how the world was painted red from Liverpool's first season in 1892 to the most recent season that ended in 2016. A country is painted red on the world map when a player who was born in that country appeared in the Liverpool squad for the first time.

Red Shift

At the end of season 1976-77, the season when Liverpool won their first European cup, only 7 countries had been painted red: England, Scotland, Wales, South Africa, Northern Ireland, Ireland, and USA.

At the end of season 2015-16, 44 countries had been painted red. This is a remarkable increase, illustrating the globalisation of LFC and football. The graph below describes that growth.
