[quote user="macdougalls perm"]It is pretty reassuring isn''t it. QPR makes me chuckle every time :-)[/quote]The QPR thing is just amazing, its like the Portsmouth thing never happened. Financial idiocy on a colossal scale.

Apologies if this has already been posted[/quote]

 

There are two problems with that chart. Firstly, and most importantly, it is comparing last season''s wages (which are the most recent available) with this season''s league position. Secondly, it is in terms of points already out of date.

Can''t help with the wage figures(!) but here is the same analysis done using current points.

There is a very close correlation between the relative wage position of each club each season so using last years wages is still a very good measure. Only Mac C and Chelsea swapped wages positions in the previous 2 seasons

And now for the ''added-value'' premier league table, showing difference between points as predicted by last year''s wages under this technique, versus actual points... We''re really 8th in the league, everyone!

In that case, T, if I was going to make a cheap debating point I would point out that we should finish around 16th place. More than that, since you say Hughton has this season "significantly outperformed" in the 20 or 25 per cent of management not governed by finance, we should end up  around, say, 13th. But I won''t make that cheap debating point, because I am not convinced we are the 16th highest wage payers this season. Which is why I cautioned against a dogmatic reading of that chart.
