Whoscored

* Strength and weakness assessment of each team, which can guide more detailed scrutiny.

Transfermarkt

* All transfers in a club’s history (occasionally beware the often slightly off values)

* Some unique insights: attacking partnerships, youngest/oldest players by season, youngest/oldest average XIs, players’ penalty records

* Creation of custom tables (choose your clubs and your seasons and create table)

* Managers’ records against other managers and clubs and their most-used players

Worldfootball.net

* Great historical database of worldwide squads and games

* View clubs by historical season squad list and results plus A-Z historical player list
