    Form and Stats

    Bit bored whilst the kids are still asleep so I thought I would do some stats about our form over the past few months. First up - I was told a couple of matches ago to stop being so negative about our form against "poor" opposition this season "Bruce always does better against the top teams" I was told. Well last season we did the double over all three teams that were relegated (this season we have not beaten either of the teams that we have played that are currently in the relegation zone). Our record against the top teams, however, has actually been pretty shocking. I suppose the good news is that combining this season and last we have not lost at home to any team in the Top 10. Which is impressive. However, if you include the play-offs we have played 11 matches against Top 10 teams at home. We have W3 D8 L0. So whilst it is true that we are unbeaten we have still dropped 16 points in 11 matches. However, our away form is shocking (I have included Wembley in the stats as it isn't VP) and reads P13 W4 D0 L9!!!! Against Top 10 teams our records is 29 (17+12) points gained v 35 (8+27) points gained by our opponents - so we have a net loss of points against the top teams. Secondly - we are told that we shouldn't judge the team over the 6 or 7 matches of this season as it is a new team, we are re-building, etc, etc, etc. So I've looked into this too. This season we have P9 (including cup matches) and would have gained 13 points. Multiplied up over a 46 match season - our form this season would have us scoring 66 points which would see us finishing 12th based on the points totals last season. No real surprise given that we are currently 12th and the average position of the teams we have played (exc. lower division teams) is 13th. However, I have extended this back to the middle of March and the Wolves match (mainly because that was when I got a bit excited last season). Over that period we have played 22 matches and would have accumulated 31 points. Multiply that up for a 46 match season and we would finish up with 65 points. Good enough for.... yep 12th place. So our current league position is exactly our form position over the last 6 months. Time is not the issue. Rebuilding is not the issue. PS - Just in case anyone thinks that the stats will be skewed by the 3 extra matches against other promotion rivals last season - the average league position of our opponents over that 22 matches is.... 12th. All of which is "interesting" but really just suggests that our mid-table form is not just based on results at the start of this season but over the final third(ish) of last season too. I then went back to the fact that we scored 18 points against the Bottom 3 last season and yet this season have only gained 2 (from 1/3 of the matches). Several people (myself included) refused to get carried away by our "best start to a season since the 1960s" and highlighted that the fixture list had been incredibly kind to us and given us a string of "easy" early matches. So I have basically taken the current league position of the teams we have played so far this season and compared it directly to the results against the teams who occupied those positions at the end of last season. Obviously for this analysis I have dropped the cup matches. So the stats for this season are: P7 W2 D4 L1 - which gives us 10 points. Project that over the remainder of the season and we would finish up with 66 points and a finishing position of 12th. However, compare those figures with the comparison of the results from last season: P7 W6 D1 L0 - which gave us a total of 19 points. Project that over the remainder of the season and we would have finished up with a rather incredible 125 points. Automatic promotion sealed several months before the end of the season. So we are 9 points worse off this season compared to last in just 7 matches. Obviously there will be other "groups" of matches from last season where our form will have been disaster and so things will even out. But I think this does reinforce the concerns that many of us have been expressing this season. We got off to a seemingly "good" start because we had a string of easy fixtures. However, we have under-performed in those fixtures (and just imagine how much worse it would be if we hadn't grabbed three injury time goals!). What crisis? Well frankly this crisis! We are already in the position where our form in the next 39 matches needs to be better than our form last season. Even if we just match form from now on - those 9 fewer points would have seen us drop out of the play-off positions (74 points = 7th position last season). This is not a knee-jerk reaction of fickle fans who don't understand that a new team needs time to settle (as if we are the only team with new players this season). This is based on pretty much half a season's worth of results and our form / performances over last season and this season. No doubt some will argue that 7th is "there or thereabouts" (well maybe just Steve now) but that assumes that our form from now exactly matches last season.

    Puskas 2018

    Some pretty good goals nominated this year though no idea how Salah made it onto this top 10. McGree is a great looking goal but looks a fluke too
  3. Your ratings and reactions please. Keep it respectful even if you know everyone else is wrong. The players' names will be added to the poll when a mod gets chance.

    17/18 Promotion Charge

    Who do we think our main challengers are going to be? Obviously at the moment it is difficult to predict who will be staying down here, but I think there's a clear divide between Newcastle, Brighton and the rest. Leeds are getting a lot of love but whilst they're well organised and physically dominant, I think they have been lucky to a degree this season. Maybe that luck will carry them all the way through. They are the side I would be happiest to be rid of anyway. I've seen Wednesday a few times and whilst they have a lot of natural ability in Bannan, Foristieri, Wallace, Winnall etc they do lack something extra. They can be physically dominated, much like Huddersfield who I also like, but question their sustainability. I think their manager is getting an awful lot from some very average players. Reading are a strange one, don't know what to make of them. Also very lucky and lucky with injuries. They've little depth. Same goes for Fulham. Derby are a mess. Sunderland will be coming down and unless there is massive upheaval at their club they will be staying down. They other two spots are still open, though Boro look extremely likely. They did a Villa last summer - signed 134 players and crossed their fingers. Basically, I fancy us. Hardly an earth shattering prediction I know but as a gabbling man I'd find it hard to look past us. Thoughts?

  7. Who's getting relegated then? Pick 3/10. Anyone who lazily suggests the three promoted teams or Burnley gets banned. Only established premier league teams allowed. Have to say everytime I've seen Everton this season they look as bad as we did in 15/16 so them going down has to be a serious possibility. Swansea look knackered aswell, lost 5/6 this season and have lost so much quality in Sigurdsson and Llorente. Think Palace will beat a fair few around them so wouldn't rule them out just yet.

  14. I now feel there has been enough time to assess Bruce, now that we know pretty much where this season is ending. I still count this (not everyone does I know I know) as his first full season and he's pretty much got us play-offs barring something daft. This squad, whatever happens will change wholesale next season, and actually I don't mind that, I think we've witnessed a very good effort from a team composed of loan signings and others all of who do not know their future after this year - it was only ever to be a one season squad. The manager, has to take credit for achieving play-offs (not certain yet yes yes yes) and he will take enormous credit if he gets us promoted (I do think we have a great shot) - and he should stay at the club next season if he achieves that. If he doesn't then, he has said so himself, it's time for a different model and cutting our cloth accordingly - and I for one, do not mind the prospect of this one bit. It's actually how I'm insulating myself from the crushing despair that may come our way in a few weeks. So what next? This is a topic about what next in the prem, or what next in the championship. I'll leave the prem ideas to others, what I'm quite excited about is a new manager working with our talented youngsters including I hope Grealish, dashed with a bit of experience (Jedi, Chester if they stay, Kodjia might too after that injury) and us building a style of play that we can take into the prem and stick with, not building a squad for one season only, ever again.

Fill in your predicted scores for each game When entering your name, make sure it is EXACTLY the same as your VT name and that it doesn't have any erroneous spaces and is CaSe SeNsEtIvE Incorrectly entered names, even if it is just a space at the start or a capital letter, will result in tracking errors throughout the tournament Once your prediction is complete, copy the cells within the dotted line and post them into this VT thread If you do not post the results correctly into this thread then your prediction will be ignored Thread banter is encouraged! Gameweek already started? No problem you can still play, just put the score for the games you have missed as N/A, e.g Fulham N/A - N/A Villa -- When will prediction threads be posted up? -- Generally I will try and post threads on Tuesday or Wednesday of each week, but this may slip at times. Just keep an eye on the forum and it'll be there before the games start. Gameweek matches will follow those as laid out on the Fantasy Football Fixtures Page let me know if I miss something due to a game being moved or postponed etc. -- Previous Gameweek Results -- Name Result Points Score Points Total Points chappy 7 9 16 Daniel 6 9 15 imavillan 8 6 14 andykeenan 7 6 13 rubberman 7 6 13 villakram 7 6 13 ismail-villa 7 6 13 Chewie 9 3 12 Czechlad 6 3 9 Rodders 4 3 7 Demitri_C 4 0 4 chappy tops the table with nearly the whole pack hitting double digits.
