Another adventure in hi-tech

Words cannot quite express the awesome of guardian.co.uk's new chalkboard tool. It's a statistical programme which maps players' movements and activities over the course of a game. You can use it to break down a player's performance by passes, shots, tackles etc. I'll try to use it as much as I reasonably can, so for starters here is Nigel de Jong's passing against Newcastle on Wednesday night.

(I tried and failed to embed it in here, so I can only manage a link. Which isn't quite as cool.)

Shit. I am already out of my depth but I'll see what I can do.
