League table if we were in Argentina

I recently read about how the Argentine league is calculated on the teams average over 3 seasons (promoted teams by the amount of seasons they have been in the league e.g west ham 2 seasons, palace 1 season) and the average points per game makes up the league.

The thought behind it was to ensure that the 'big' clubs did not get relegated.

I then thought how would the Premier league look on this principle. The table below would be the standings after 22 games this season.

Club Average point per game

Man City 2.21

Man Utd 2.19

Arsenal 1.98

Chelsea 1.92

Spurs 1.88

Everton 1.64

Liverpool 1.60

Newcastle 1.45

WBA 1.20

Southampton 1.20

Fulham 1.16

Swansea 1.16

Stoke 1.14

West Ham 1.06

Aston Villa 1.05

Hull 1.05

Palace 0.91

Cardiff 0.81

It shows how hard the argentine league makes it for new teams. And how a good season can save you from relegation fights for the next couple, see WBA.

Yup - that's why Argentina introduced it in the first place, to prevent any of their big clubs (i.e. River Plate) from getting relegated.

River plate did eventually in 2012 I believe.

Unfortunately it would look like we wouls be the River Plate of the premier league before long.

As long as we win the league 34 times before we're relegated and then bounce right back up i'd be ok with it.

 

Speaking of River, let's ask them if they can give us Manuel Lanzini for free
