Starting Problem
Posted by: Grizzzly

Quiet day at work, so did a bit of research re our Championship results across the last 20 years, i.e. seasons 1998-2017 inclusive:

Championship games starting before end of June:

W L D Total

40 49 69 158

25% 31% 44% 100%

Championship games starting 1st July onwards:

W L D Total

50 38 74 162

31% 23% 46% 100%

So, we win 25% more of games played in the second half of the season, relative to the first half.

We lose 34% more of our games played in the first half of the season, in contrast to the second half.

Clearly, not a new problem & seemingly no closer to being resolved.

Let's hope that LC's decision to keep us closer to HQ pre season 2018 helps.
