World Cup penalties. VAR or referees?

Jun 30th, 2018 at 11:45 davidg3907 on World Cup 13 comments 364 views

We have arrived at the end of the group stage. It is time to reflect on VAR's (possible) effect on various matters. Time taken for reviews. In general, this has not been anywhere near as long as feared. This could be because of people in charge letting play continue while doing a review in the background. Only when the panel decides a referee has made a wrong call is the …

Aug 7th, 2018 at 23:21 davidg3907 on Premier League 3 comments 171 views

Premier League season statistics from 17/18 for comparison against previous 10 seasons. It is always an interesting time when one season's spreadsheets are done and dusted. New ones can then be prepared, often including a few modifications or additions. I now have collated the data for the last 11 campaigns. In many fields averages and trends are becoming more reliable, while acknowledging that short term fluctuations can still affect them. So which …

France might have come through their group as comfortable winners, but the manner of each of their results will have left question marks for fans of Les Bleus as well as anyone that has backed them for the tournament.

Premier League. Tissues can be more accurate than 1X2 predictions.

Aug 9th, 2018 at 14:29 davidg3907 on Premier League 0 comments 124 views

I mention the Premier League but the same principles would apply to most leagues. Once into August, most serious football pundits and punters will have framed their shortlist of teams that could win the Premier League, finish in the top 4 or 6, or be fighting a relegation battle. That process can’t be finalised in June or July but some preparation must (even subconsciously) go into it long before coming …
