  1. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    trents figure quoted above show that the last 4 seasons have been among the highest points totals yet to acheive 2nd spot. 93-89-89-93 It should be noted that the 7 teams that went up as Champs or 2nd place (Burnley went up twice) in those 4 seaons are all still in the PL - with the exception of Boro who came back down. This may account for the high pts totals shown.

  11. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Another table showing "Strength of Schedule" to use the American phrase. Its based on every opponents home and away records being ranked. Currently we have the 2nd toughest Home schedule - not surprising as we have only played Boro at home of the top 8 - but we have an easier (?) away schedule. Blues have the 'toughest' away schedule This model works better in a league where there are fewer 'shocks' - like the PL ? But I publish it just for interest, anyway
  12. Jimmy MacEwan

    One of my early heroes "Although there was talk of a coaching job at Villa nothing materialised and Jimmy left to join Walsall, where he played into his forties then coached and managed until 1973 when he went to work at Ansells Brewery. "He continued to play for the Villa Old Stars well into his fifties and only really stopped playing after he had two knee replacements at the same time. "He was known for being bow-legged. He wasn't born that way, it was because of a stance he copied from a player back in Scotland. "In 1991 he had to have both legs broken to rectify it, and it made him about three inches taller!." "Up until the last 18 months when he was diagnosed with early onset dementia and a heart problem he was as fit as a fiddle. "He has been in residential care where he was safe, well looked after and seemed quite content. "He enjoyed his visits from ex players, including Harry Burrows, plus a couple of Villa fanatics who spent hours reminiscing with him."
  13. January transfer window 2018

    Acc to transfermarkt, Murray has played only 638 mins this season - but he IS their top scorer. He may start - but perhaps he doesnt last ?
  14. January transfer window 2018

    Apparently that's all bulls*** - Joyce (his manager) has no problems with him
