The 2020–21 SFCU Player of the Season has been announced. You can read the announcement on the SFCU forum, check out the full results and standings, and read my blog post that includes a few extra graphs and stats. Thanks to everyone who voted!
Welcome to SFC Statistics, an unofficial comprehensive source of information related to Sydney FC.
There’s a new option in the match search: after you’ve selected the parameters of your search, you can hit “Opposition player statistics” to see the list of players who’ve played against Sydney FC in those matches. And once you get there, you can click through to see each player’s full list of those appearances against Sydney.
Examples: those who’ve faced Sydney in the ACL (Yuki Abe did for Urawa in both 2007 and 2016), for other Sydney-based teams (Nikolai Topor-Stanley has the most such minutes, with 1080), or in Sydney FC wins at the SFS (Andrew Durante lost 12 times there).
It’s been a long time coming, but I’m happy to announce that SFC Statistics finally has player profile pages. You can now click on a player’s name on the player list, or in the team list from a random match, and you can see detailed information on their Sydney FC career. One of the aspects that took the most effort is the career visualisation, which shows the part they played in every match in their Sydney FC career, including matches missed due to injury, suspension, etc. Check out Ali Abbas to see a dramatic return from long-term injury, Rhyan Grant for a journey from bit-part youngster to 90+-minute mainstay (via two missed seasons), or Bobô for non-stop goals.
I haven’t forgotten about the women either, although their pages unfortunately have a bit less info because it is harder to come by.
There are plenty of other stats that I’m planning to add to these pages in time, but the most obvious thing still missing is an actual player profile. I’m not much of a writer myself, so I would love it if somebody (or somebodies) would like to contribute to the site in that way. Please contact me if you’re interested in this and I can give you more info on what I’m after (hint: not a peer-reviewed encyclopedia entry).
I’ve added a new function to the match search: you can now view the statistics of Sydney FC players in the matches that you searched for. Just hit the “Player statistics” button once you’ve entered your search terms.
Voting is also still open for last week’s ACL loss to Ulsan Hyundai.
