Your best friend while watching a live football match on TV
Your Second Screen
We know that lots of you like to browse online while watching matches on TV....Thats why we have built Squawka. Squawka is a web application that delivers you real time data on the football match you are watching on TV alongside social chat.
Tell Squawka which game you are interested in and you will be presented with a chat panel and a data panel. You can dive into live statistics on either team, any player or any two players head-to-head in the data panel. You can even filter the stats you want to see by any 5 minute period in the game.
Squawka is all about giving you 'Stats worth Sharing'. We want you to be able to have informed discussions with other fans during matches. So, once you have found an interesting stat you want to share, go to the chat panel to discuss your findings with others. You can even share data panels out to your friends and followers on Facebook & Twitter.
Each team and player have their own pages on Squawka which are constantly updated with the latest performance data - so you can come to Squawka whenever you need to challenge a friends footy opinion.
Everyone at Squawka loves football. We love football so much we have built our own scientific player performance scoring algorithm. Without getting too technical, our boffins score every on-ball action, the outcome of these actions, the players position, the area of the field etc etc...in fact, Squawka calculates over 14 million data points in real time. This is displayed for you in a nifty little bubble against each players name. There is no maximum number the scores go up to but the more the bubble is filled up with colour the better the game the player is having.

No need to download anything...
Squawka is a web application which means that you can just go to Squawka.com on your laptop to get access to the latest stats on the game you are watching. If you visit from a tablet device (such as the iPad) then you will also get a fantastic experience. We haven't built our smartphone apps yet - they are coming later in the year.
