League stats again
Obviously I cannot be trusted. After my post from yesterday I unexpectedly found myself today with a few hours of free time.

<tl;dr> League stats should be working again

For those interested in tech babble:

The issue was that player names were not displayed anymore. The root of this lay in me using html scraping from the player page to load the name and some additional data. The reason for this was that there is no api call for exactly this combination of data.

Now it seems Christer dared to change the html code of said page (I know, the audacity!). So I could have just checked how to adjust the selector for the fields and be happy. But it is just bad practice so I decided to switch to the json api for the player and load additional data from the json team endpoint as well.

This is a bit ugly as the rest of the data is loaded via the older xml api but from a first glance it does not seem easy to just switch to a different endpoint and get the same data. So now I have xml and json parsing in the same application but that is not the end of the world ;-)

As a bonus I threw in a dependency update to hopefully improve stability and security.

I know some of you have requested additional fields/changes to some stats. But that really has to wait as this fix already took longer than I was hoping for and it was actually coincidence my plans for this evening changed on short notice.

Anyways thanks for reading and I hope I got everything fixed again :-)
