More on pass completion

I've done some more on the pass completion histograms that I first did. The first plot shows the pass completion as a percentage for the team, and the second breaks it down to each individual player.

Thanks to Neil for suggesting a percentage; it does look a bit tidier. However you do loose the magnitude information; for example a single long range completed pass, skews the information a bit. This is exacerbated by the relatively small number of passes (not in terms of a single football match but in terms of sampling, but perhaps I'm using too many bins?). To try and keep a sense of scale I've added the total number of successful and failed passes in the legends.

Apologies for the size of the second plot, there's a lot of information there.
