Detailed analysis of League One by the fantastic ‘experimental 3-6-1 blog’. In this review, Ben Mayhew has produced an animated minute-by-minute league table to identify clubs that performed well or poor at various points during matches compared to the remainder of the division. This approach is particularly useful to understand how performance during matches affected final league position.
