Football News: 16 November 2008

Sun 16 November 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments
Several participants who have reached their third game since 1 September 2008 have joined the rankings. Kumar and Sam come in jointly at number one, with 3 wins out of 3.

Current rankings

Ranking Participants Games Played Won Lost Difference Between Wins & Losses/ Games Played Weeks Since Last Game (0, 1, 2, 3, 4+) Adjusted Win / Loss Ratio
1. Kumar 3 3 0 1.000 0 2.541
Sam 3 3 0 1.000 0 2.541
3. Steve F 7 5 1 0.571 0 2.166
4. Gilbert 14 10 4 0.429 0 2.118
5. Clive 4 3 1 0.500 0 2.054
6. Dirk 10 6 2 0.400 0 2.035
7. Tom 15 9 5 0.267 0 1.969
8. Mark L 5 3 1 0.400 0 1.968
9. Andy M 9 5 2 0.333 0 1.955
10. George 6 4 2 0.333 0 1.914
Some minor adjustments to stabilize the rankings, and to encourage regular and sustainable participation:

  • The ratio of the difference between wins and losses against total games played is worth 2 points.  Previously, it was a range between -1 and 1.
  • The ratio of total games played to total number of sessions is worth 0.5 points. This was previously not taken into account.
  • Having played in the preceding week is worth 0.5 points.  This was previously worth 1 point.

I have also included in the full rankings this week a separate ranking by actual number of games won since 1 September 2008. The top 10 are as follows:

Participant Wins Total Games Played
1. Gilbert 10 14
2. Tom 9 15
3. Bobby 8 21
4. Rajiv 8 22
5. Murray 7 14
6. Dirk 6 10
7. Sushil 6 13
8. Edardy 6 14
9. Steve F 5 7
10. Andy M 5 9
Ian 5 9
Raj 5 9

    Terry Butcher, currently the Scottish assistant manager, threatening to punch Diego Maradona, the Argentine manager, before the friendly between the two countries tomorrow?

    Butcher was one of the players left in Maradona’s wake as he danced through the England ranks to score one of the greatest goals of all time.

    Prior to that moment of footballing genius, Maradona, pretending to go for a header, had punched the ball past goalkeeper Peter Shilton on the way to a 2-1 win.

    “It’s not nice when you lose a World Cup quarter-final under those circumstances,” explained Butcher.

    ….

    “I think I’m 4-1 to get a red card in the tunnel – it would be the fist of Terry Butcher rather than the hand.”
