Obvious troll, but I'll bite. My model is used for week to week Matchups not end of season projections. For overall rankings I look at xG data and shot ratios. Michael caley hasn't posted a new table yet but Paul Riley has his up. Spurs are 7th currently in xg difference. I think around 5/6 games is when you get a better picture and it starts to have good predictive value.

Plenty of stuff can be chalked up to small sample at this point. However there are def questions worth asking for certain teams (Chelsea defense) as warning signs appear.

@MC_of_A: Poche says Spurs have been pretty much fine through three matches. My stats agree (4.5 xG, 2.9 xGA plus pen & OG). http://t.co/4fUOTE3KLQ

Yes IMO. Plop are horrible and Arse vs West Ham was basically a miracle

But nic was obviously doing the reverse jinx trick.

If you are not lumping on Arsenal at this price you should hand in your bookies pen and betting slip

You've probably noticed but the Pool long term regs on here, myself included, are all pretty pessimistic about our current team, especially up against a legit Arsenal side.

spuds doing well in xG means ~nothing given that they've faced two meh teams, and the third team (stoke) had their key players either injured or not yet purchased

Tbf to Ducksauce, he's right in that the Shrewd big stake traders/syndicates don't usually get heavily involved until after around 6 games.
