    Hello,

    This thread is for posting the best chance creators per 90 minutes of each World Cup, according to this website.

    http://www.optasports.com/

    I applied two conditions:
    • Only players with at least 5 created chances in a tournament are included.
    • Players who only played one game aren't included. So you won't find players with 6 created chances and one played game in this list.

    The definition of 'chances created' is:

    http://www.optasportspro.com/es/acerca-de/blog-optapro/posts/2012/optapro's-event-definitions.aspx


    It will take a while before I've updated all of my files with the remaining players though.

    Good job.
    I'd reconsider the minimun GP or minutes played requirement imo or at least list it.

    Thanks for your appreciation,

    Yes, I was thinking about it. I noticed too that players who got subbed in later on, or tend to get subbed out prematurely have a higher 'chances per 90 minutes'. Maybe ( ? ) because they can contribute higher energy levels in a shorter period of time.
    [This problem is aggravated at later editions when the amount of subs is expanded]

    I don't know how to deal with it.

    I also thought about relating it in some way to the average opposition they met. Do you have an idea/method at hand to take that into account?

    Anyway, because of this I listed the 'naked' data with the conditions applied in the starting post (because it does not make sense to list players with only one game etc.)


    Easiest solution is to list the minutes played behind the player. I can do that.

    Ofc, high chances ratio doesn't necessarily mean that a player played well (i.e. Totti in 2006 who was castigated and performs very bad in other categories like duels won, pass accuracy etc.)

    I did this for a 'project' and just used the avg. ELO rating. Only the 'naked' data though, I don't know how to use it as a 'multiplier' in a nonarbitrary way.
    Another problem is that outliners have a heavy influence.

    Hi Puck,

    This is a very good info and good idea to keep it a separate thread. However, do you happen to "validate" how they meant by "chances creating" ? This is a very grey area. For example,
    - Clear chance: a square pass, lay off pass , a thru ball, a threaded ball, a chip over the DF ... so the striker can jump in and score.

    - Half clear chances: a crossing in for header, volley ...

    - no so clear chance: a short or long pass that turn opponent DF back

    - a PK, or FK earn?

    - a so lo run?

    Click on the link in the starting post. The glossary answers most of these questions.

    I don't think they count PKs earned as an assist, therefore also not as a created chance. See also whoscored. Not entirely sure but for a large extent I am.

    Set-pieces are counted as created chances - if successfully executed (resulting in an attempt). For example, at 1994WC set-piece specialists like Hassler and Scifo (who had evolved in a specialist at that stage of his career) do very well.

    Very great thread Puck :cool:

    I'm impressed with the WC '70 stats. Four peruvians are in the top-10!!!
    They are widely regarded as the most technical peruvian generation ever. But still a great acomplishment.

    Btw, i was shocking seeing Baylon at the top of the list. He was the weakest point in the ofensive line being subed/relegated from most matches.

    Can you post the link maybe? Then I can use it and list it too.

    A pity that their defense wasn't that great. Though, Pelé was relatively quiet against Peru


    Also impressive is that they did not make a lot of fouls and they did not win a lot of them either.

    Name (games); fouls won; conceded; yellow

    Brazil (6 games): 103; 96; 4
    England (4 games): 71; 72; 2
    Germany (6 games): 121; 100; 5
    Italy (6 games): 112; 111; 5
    Peru (4 games): 46; 47; 1
    Uruguay (6 games): 126; 139; 9
    USSR (4 games): 85; 108; 8
    Sweden (3 games): 49; 46; 2


    Yellow cards per game:
    USSR 2.00
    Uruguay 1.50
    Italy 0.83
    Germany 0.83
    Brazil 0.67
    Sweden 0.67
    England 0.50
    Peru 0.25

    Fouls won per game:
    USSR 21.25
    Uruguay 21.00
    Germany 20.16
    Italy 18.66
    England 17.75
    Brazil 17.16
    Sweden 16.33
    Peru 11.50

    Fouls conceded per game:
    USSR 27.00
    Uruguay 23.17
    Italy 18.50
    England 18.00
    Germany 16.67
    Brazil 16.00
    Sweden 15.33
    Peru 11.75


    Such stat is always a bit tricky but I do not see a reason for a possible bias/conspiracy for or against Peru. Very impressive that they needed few fouls and free kicks.


    As comparison/yardstick the 'controversial' Argentina 1978 side:

    Fouls won: 204
    Fouls conceded: 141
    Yellow: 5
    Red: 0

    One of the most striking facts is the almost complete absence of English players among the best. Not only: all the nations that play a "British" brand of football are almost invisible in these tables: besides Strachan, all Swedish, Norwegian, Scottish, Irish & Northern Irish players are extremely lowly rated.

    Lots of Peruvians, Mexicans, Portuguese, French, Brazilians and Spaniards though.

    England has often a tough draw or route (when taking all 'top' nations into account). That is why they lost five times against the future champion in WC history. I've the historical group stage data but refrained from opening a thread because I did not want provoke flame wars or being accused of an agenda/pastime (the outcome was obvious).

    This tough draw, compared with the other top nations, might have an effect on the average chances created.

    See also some weak finalists with an easy group-stage, knock-out route and good chances created (hint: 2002WC).

    Anyway,

    I'll redo all naked data and list the minutes played. I'll also list the goals scored (and PKs) and the assists behind the player.
