Would not be surprised if Arsenal v Brenda's Rabble ends 0-0 after all the usual hype.

The best 0-0 league in the world.

6 home wins. one each for the top 6. La liga 4 0-0s in the first 7, 3 1-0s, one goal from open play

stats from a few weeks dont really mean much imo.

the first 2 weeks, at half time 3 of the 20 matches were 0-0. week 3, 6 out of 10 were 0-0.

next week, we could get 10 out of 10 home teams winning. things average out over a season, not 3 weeks.
Report sideshowbob August 24, 2015 10:02 PM BST
out of curiosity ive just looked at last seasons epl.

after 3 weeks, same stage as now, we had:

9 home wins
11 away wins
10 draws

at the end of the season we had:

45% home wins
30% away wins
24% draws

so you could have used this same argument last season, then got proved wrong. sorry to be a buzzkill! Plain

teams like palace are set up perfectly for the counter attack, so i think they'll always be a better away team
Report donny osmond August 30, 2015 12:15 AM BST
why dont teams counter attack at home ?
Report RBoyd86 August 30, 2015 12:19 AM BST
not so much, i should say there better playing against teams who put pressure on them and they can spring better than having a majority of possession.

Remember when Mourinho's Inter knocked Barca out of the Champions League in 2010, he insisted afterwards that his team would rather give Barca the ball back rather than go forward for fear of being counter-attacked.
Maybe this will be the future, boring but successful tactic of football and nobody's latched onto it yet. Or maybe he was just  talking bo11ocks.

You should read The Numbers Game, by Chris Anderson and David Sally. A football version of Moneyball.

Interesting book.

Football should add a "shot clock" like basketball.  Matches would be far more exciting, you have 20 seconds to get into the opposition half and another 30 seconds after that.  If the team doesn't do anything the other team is awarded a free kick where the ball was last. 

Imagine the action.  Barcelona would be screwed. Laugh

sounds interesting, I'm surprised the MLS stick to ours rules, although I doubt it'll be too long before the start bringing in quarters, time-outs and shot clocks

its the new way all the coaches are interested in is pocession and rotating the ball,if every team trys to play like this ground advantage is irelavent,theres stats been banged out every day that make your eyes water
rooney no away goal in epl for 17 months
rooney 8 shots on target in last 10 games etc
costa a couple of shots all season,
the games dying on its arse in front of peoples eyes but no ones interested,chelsea according to the pundits are in crisis after 3 games,but the same pundits never uttered a word when this same chelsea team never lifted a leg in the last 25 games of last season,fabregas getting pelters for 3 average games but nothing said of the 20 stinkers he ended last season with he,s stank stamford bridge out in 95% of the games he,s played with them,most of them in a free role with no responsability

The biggest advantage playing at home is the crowd.
A nasty hostile crowd appealing for every decision and when they dont get it getting nastier.
The amount of 50/50s that the home team get adds up,and gives a decent advantage IMO.

Interesting number. 54% is almost exactly the number of MLB baseball games won by the home team over the last 50 years. Of course, that is in a sport where the tie is not possible. There was a thread on here asking if football was the hardest sport to predict. The 54% home advantage in both sports suggests not.
