Spurs Will Come Good...That Stats Bloke At The Times Says So
If you don't read Daniel Finkelstein's 'Fink Tank' column in The Times newspaper then you are missing a trick.
This guy and his team run yer actual professional statistical analyses on football matches to determine what's really going on. These are the guys that have shown that the idea of 'form' (for a team, rather than individual player) is a bit of a myth.
Anyway, somewhat unsurprisingly, Finkelstein is a Tottenham Hotspur fan, and he has been analysing why Spurs have been doing badly thus far this season. His conclusion ? Statistically, the long term prediction is that they will do just fine in 2006-2007. What is perceived as their poor form is just a statistical blip! Hooray !
Don't believe me? Read it here and weep, you Gooners.
