v1.9 (16 Jun 2015)
- Arsenal Report merge initiated
- Transfer Centre now live
- Injury Room now live
- Players page now live

Dial Square will soon become the new Arsenal Report. For the last three days or so I've been transferring every single entry in the old Transfer Centre and Injury Room to this platform. I've also made a players page where you can check homegrown/u21 status. Most of this is all automated, and some things might change before official launch, but it's gonna be awesome.

Feature requests!

Could you perhaps do a post type for fixtures. Maybe have a tab for fixtures where all fixtures are listed once you know them similar to Mini Manager.

Could then include details on: - KO Time (with count down in the time zone we choose in our account) - Location - TV Channel if its on - EPL W/D/L stats - last few previous meetings scores (these could link back to the previous fixture listing and topic discussions once we have them) - Available squad lists with the selection added once known - After the match you could then have the stats breakdown for some tactical discussions.

Knowing your amazing design skills I can just imagine the beautiful posts you could create that summarise all the key information in a really approachable way.

Additionally you could add a betting system where users predict the score before KO and over the season you could have a league system to see who is the best at predicting.

Thanks,

Stuart

I've actually played around with this idea but decided against it for the time being, only because it's so time consuming to update all the stats, fixture changes, etc. I've also considered the betting aspect, and although it would be super fun it would add massive amounts of effort needed to keep it running smoothly.

I think the only way it could realistically be done is if someone is in charge of it, and that someone isn't me. Coding is easy, maintaining it is harder. ;)

Concidered coding something like this off a RSS feed (or something similar)? I'm not 100% certain as to the limitations of such a thing or how hard it is to code, but I see people making "TV-guide" apps for phones that basically just steal data off of some other web-site. By making a code that automatically checks with premierleague.com a few times a week regarding kick-off times and such there would be no need for a moderator.

Site scraping. Not a big deal to code, but harder than you might think to maintain. All it takes is the target website to change name of one element and the scraping fails completely.
