Something geeky: A statisticians' view of the league table

Could not help trying this idea: Submitting the league table for a straight forward analysis of it's means and "confidence intervals".


More randomness is involved in relegation than in winning?





A graphical look at points only. Green line is mean (45), black lines mark confidence interval boundaries. Championships do not come by chance very often.


Guess I'm exploiting the extremes of my inspiration here? Or?

Copenhagen Files

I love football and I love the Internet. Copenhagen Files is a playground of mine for the latter and a billboard of the former. The focus is on FC København - the #1 club in Copenhagen and Denmark.

I watch every single FC København game - aways usually on the Danish TV, home games currently from my season ticket seat at Parken Stadium. Every now and then a report from the nearby training pitches are to be expected. Or perhaps just from the supporter environment at local parks or bars ;-)

I also like to bet on games which usually takes place online these days. Therefore, I gather numbers and look at them; I analyze, twist, turn and play with them. And some of them ends up here as my probability assessments. But this blog is not about betting.

In the right hand column I collect every single relevant link you can think of. I actually use it for bookmarks often - perhaps they will prove handy to you too? They should easily guide you to the latest info on injuries, club economy, squad value etc.
