A lazy soccer blog that mostly deals with trying to use some actual data and do some real analysis instead of gut feeling type stuff. Of course in the end it's all arbitrary any ways, so it's really pointless. I just like playing with data in excel really.

I wear newspapers for pants
So not a lot to tell really, except that I'm once more iterating power rankings. And I think I'm gonna do it graphically this week, since copy and pasting into blogger has been sort of a hassle... Let's see if this works out.
First, as always, the actual rankings.
Next up we've got the SHFR trend charts. Click to embiggen.
Then, this week, I'm trying something new. People always seem to think my rankigns aren't changing fast enough, or TEAM XXXX HAS PLAYED SO GOOD WTF, so here's the same ranking system applied to the last 5 games only. i.e. if the season started five games ago, here's how the rankings would look for each team.
Annnnnd.... that's a about it really. Yay! And yay San Jose!
