The Plus Liga is season has been sputtering along for a while now and I have managed to study every match, which you might have notice. I have written a few things about that popped into my attention on video and some various statistical analyses. I haven’t written about any team things for a few weeks, so I will fix that right now. From my eyes Kędzierzyn has been playing the best volleyball, followed by Zawiercie. Other teams have played some really good matches, but haven’t been able to play consistently well. I suspect that will be the story of the season. There are a few players I have really enjoyed watching, but I will probably keep them secret. Needless to say there are some wonderful players in the league.
As always, I don’t like to share the obvious stats. And as always what is here has been generated by the Science Untangled suite of apps, specifically the reporting app. In all honesty, you should be using them. Then you never have to use complex codes again. Imagine how much time you will save.
