Re: English Football 2015-16

I like the look of Palace, in my predictor I put them down for 8th.

No chance they can ever do better than 7th, putting money on them to go any higher is just burning money.

Palace look nice but top half is still an accomplishment.

For the Wenger quote, I wonder how many managers have an analytics guy or care about them.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Just browsing on phone. Odds on Palace top 4 with Messi?

Also are we really as bad as model suggests 3 games in (nice post). Missed the last two games. Am I going to have to start claiming an uncle in Manchester soon?

The defensive stats are really really bad. Just a question of a) how much that was due to being down to 10 men twice. b) how much of the issues will sort themselves out without making changes c) if they don't sort them selves out will jose make the right changes to sort them out.

C is probably the most likely result, which if that's the case how quickly will that happen, and when it does happen will it be too late?

Re: English Football 2015-16



I made a brief comment irl that early season defending is always suspect so hopefully things sort itself out but as you say when things resolve itself it might be too late with City already 5 points ahead. If Jose tantrums gain us a pogba (which I've been saying since last season - we need great 4-3-3 options) then there's a chance.

Aren't Liverpool supposed to have a few of them in Boston or something?

Re: English Football 2015-16

Does anyone know much about the Bayer striker spurs are chasing??? 22m for a foreigner I'm hoping he's half decent..

Based on our previous dealings, I won't be surprised if he has no clue where the goal is.

Re: English Football 2015-16

In all seriousness, Palace are a decent side and ppl itt are making the bet look way worse than it really is- I just think that once CP reach a certain number of points their performances will drop off...also Soton cant be terrible forever

They're going to do well to make it back - the estimates are that what they have done has cost OPEC $200bn a year. Also, OPEC aren't as influential as they once were, and it can be argued that it never had the characteristics of a successful cartel in the first place.

Depending on how long the long run is, the world is very likely to move towards alternative energy sources, which is hardly great news for OPEC.

Pochettino turning into swiss toni (prob need to be old to know the reference) re: berahino

As I understand it it's basically free to pull oil/gas from the desert, so even if/when it loses some of it's worth they'll still be rolling in cash until it someday in the distant future runs out. Fracking, oil sands, deep sea drilling and stuff like that are the ones that really hurt. Reasonably correct?

Correct - their cost of production is phenomenally low (for either Saudi Arabia or Iraq it's around five dollars, which is ridiculous). What's interesting to note about shale production is that is can be switched on and off at very short notice with little consequence (which is very different with a lot of conventional production). So as prices rise, shale switches itself on, which creates supply which then obviously has a negative impact on prices. Oil sands production, in general, is incredibly expensive.

Looks like City are down to just Aguero up top, Bony's walking round with a protective boot on.

They've got one more striker than us. Sakho is doubtful with a groin injury and the only target he's hit this season has been his missus.
