LONDON, November 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Ever watched the closing moments of extra time through your fingers as your team succumbs to a last-minute goal? Or wondered what the table would look like if that red card hadn't been given? Now League Of Your Own, a newly launched web app, answers the questions on every fan's mind with an alternative Premier League table
The League Of Your Own web app, located online here: http://www.leagueofyourown.eu/ which has been developed in co-operation with bwin, Europe's premier sportsbook, allows fans to alter league data and see what the Premier League would look like if those 'what if' moments actually happened.
Using up-to-the-minute stats from Opta - a leading supplier of sports data, users can adjust a number of variables, such as how goals are scored, the amount of extra time in the games, or even giving teams a handicap or head start.
League Of Your Own offers statistically minded fans an opportunity to crunch the numbers going beyond the final results of the game, and then tell their friends about it. Updated after every weekend of footballing action, fans can analyse all the statistics in depth, creating their own league table, which can be shared across social media.
The site allows users to alter variables from the current season, meaning they can try to save teams from relegation or push them into a coveted European spot.
To demonstrate the ability League Of Your Own has to change the fate of a team, we have shown what happens when only goals from outside the box are allowed:
- All teams bar Liverpool move up or down at least one place, with Newcastle going top
- Current strugglers Norwich and Fulham improve by 11 and 12 places respectively
- High flyers Southampton suffer the most, dropping 13 places

A spokesperson for bwin said: "League of Your Own brings users to the heart of the game and gives a whole new meaning to post-match analysis. We all know top scorers are important, but take out a star midfielder and their assists and you realise that they are only as good as those players that surround them."
