    Default The Occasional 2014/15 Stats File

    After 8 Games

    So, we're 8 games in, we've won 5 and drawn 3. It's a good point to reflect on the statiscal performance of the team in garibadli.

    8 Games see's us top with 18pts. This is just lower than QPR, who were top at the same point last season on 20pts who hadn't lost but had won 6 drawn 2. Leiester, who ultimately became champions were on 17pts having won the same number lost one game. Forest were 6th, on 15pts, having won 4, drawn 3 and lost one game.

    Leicester won the champions on 2.21pts/game after 46 games and we're currently on 2.25, but after just 1/6 of the season past keeping this up will be a challenge. But Leicester shows it can be done but you need to maintain form.

    At this point last season we had a goal difference of +5, and we ended up after 46 games with just +3. So a current difference of +10 is encouraging. Last season Watford had a comparable difference after 8 games, and although they finished lower in 13th place they still hada +10.

    Britt Assombalonga is the league's top scorer with 8 goals and Michail Antonio is joint 4th on 4. At the end of the season Andy Reid was our top scorer with 9 goals, and he finsihed about 33rd.

    Here's another stat:

    The average amount of points required for automatic promotion from the championship over past 10 seasons has been 86 points.
    At our current rate, we're on track to surpass 103 points.

    The win/draw ratio at the moment is 1.32, last season at this point it was 1.17 and over the season it was 1.21.

    It's debatle whether this means anything, but I thought I'd share with you.

    Here's another stat for you.

    Michael Mancienne has been awesome so far this season!

    It's been a great start from a new-look first team, and if we can get to the next international break and still be top, I'll begin to fancy our chances. As it is at the moment, we're flattering to deceive somewhat and we'll be on the receiving end of a heavy defeat soon if we're not careful. I'm expecting us to be 4th-6th by Christmas, personally.

    Our next three games are all against teams twelfth or lower, with two at home; this is where we lost too many points last season, and this is also where we need to start going on winning streaks if we are to hold onto an automatic position.

    Some say look at the table after 10 games to assess progress, some say at Christmas.

    I say I'll be happy to be top at the end of the season, which is what counts.

    One thing I will guarantee, there will be many wrist-slitting moments before then.

    What is an "occasional table" the rest of the time?

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Michael Mancienne, Britt Assombalonga and Michail Antonio are top of the league with a 100% success rate at being awesome at the footballs.

    Can anyone compare this start of the season to the one back in 1997/1998 season. Plus comparing the strike rate of Van Hooijdonk and Assombalonga.

    To clarify: occasional in this sense means it is a table that is utilised on "occasions".
    It is not used as in "the table was occasionally seen masquerading as a sideboard".
    Hope that helps.

    We'd won 5, drawn 1, lost 2.

    Van Hooijdonk had scored 5 league goals.

    No idea on league position.

    According to Steven Hawking you can't assume a table is a table when you can't see it. He says it might have whizzed up to the International Space Station while you weren't looking. I guess William Hill will give you odds on that, they offered me 150/1 on Forest winning the Premier League before 2020 so I put £70 on. If you want to stand-in on a bet with them regarding your furniture PM me.

    If the Fulham matchday thread is anything to go by even when we were 2-1 up I dread to think what will be said when we get a player sent off and lose 2-0 to someone pony

    As we have both flagged each other as being middle class, I wonder if your definition is the same as mine.
    However, it is a case of "you show me yours" first here.

    Agree that its too early to get excited. Look at the positions of the teams we've played to date -

    Fulham, Blackpool and Bolton are in the bottom 3 showing they are not performing well so far.
    Bournemouth and Millwall are in the bottom half in with a fairly average start
    Sheffield Wednesday, Reading and Derby are in the top half vying for the top six. Reading was a good win but, they played an experimental midfield against us during the game - several had not started for the before according to reports.

    So far then, we haven't played a lot of good consistent teams. I'll allow myself to get excited when we beat form teams like Norwich, Wolves, Watford and Middlesborough.

    There isn't that many consistent teams in the Championship full stop. Teams up their game for us and even more so now we've spent a bit of money and are up the top of the league and that's why teams like Millwall, Wednesday, Bournemouth etc can play well against us yet slip up against less fancied teams than even themselves just as Forest do when we play well against the bigger sidesyet struggle against the lower sides. It's a mental thing that affects pretty much everybody - look at Man City losing to Stoke, Man Utd losing to everybody, even Chelsea looked like a bottom of the table side v Swansea for 45 minutes.

    Nothing wrong with getting excited, that will hopefully breed confidence, enthusiasm and seeing the prize right in front of you makes some people more determined than ever than say clinging onto 6th place with a slim chance of going up through the playoffs.
