Nil return from game one. That’s one in the eye for you crazy goal junkies. I suspect the next game could be very different.

Blah, you need to trend at just over 4 goals per game. 5 - 4 city to get you back on track?
Anything above 2nd highest gives me the title 😎

Aha. I see what you did there. 8-) A title won on anything less than 350 goals would be a tainted title though. Robot would be the people’s champion at 318 to 350. :lol:

unless there are a clutch of 8 or 10 goal tallies pretty soon, Jamjack is going to stroll this !
After 8 matches (inc Saturday's) the average is barely above 2 per game. 17 in total !

Relax - 8 or 10 goals equals a couple of cup penalty shootouts

Nice try :lol: shootout goals aren't real goals. If they don't count towards the golden boot etc.

I don’t think today’s games are going to help the goal average increase much. I would however be happy, in fact delighted, to be proven wrong in the interests of our entertainment today.

I do seem to recall the other Euro league starting more slowly on the goal ratios in the first games after the restart before stepping up once the players became match sharp. 3 games a week might not help the EPL though.

Man City get 5 on Monday to complete week 1. 12 games and 28 goals. Still well below the average and looking good for Jamjack unless.........

28/12 = 2.333 goals/game

2.333 * 99 = 231.

From previous thread (but still not 100% clear!)


SamD
@ theo29:
Might it be worth stating whether cup goals in extra time - and perhaps penalty shootout - will count?
Also, what happens if season is abandoned during this extension?


theo29
Quick response for Samd .( I hope he enters after hearing it) All goals count in FA Cup games, whenever scored. If the whole thing is abandoned the number of goals scored to that point will win. Might be worh having a punt around 160 or thereabouts.
Come on guys, lets have a decent entry.

Which implies it includes penalty shootouts. But we will wait for the man himself to confirm

yes I did say all goals count whenever scored. I am even considering the non goal on the opening day, just to keep you guessing. No I dont do rules, that is left to murf and his Highlander bible !

no goal explosions so far with the Cup 6th round this weekend. 21 played leaving 78 to play. 47 goals barely just above 2 a game.

Now 47 from 21 = 2.24 goals/game

2.24 * 99 = 222

I think theo must have miscounted, as there've been 22 games so far, so the average isn't even as high as that.

Never mind shoot out fun, I'd need there to be a penalty orgy to win this now.

thanks for the correction Johnners, I was urging Chelsea to get a third, 3-1 at 33's made me totally forget the wider picture. On Saturday, Maguire's late goal robbed us of a much needed shoot-out. Next review after the Monday games but I think Jamjack can sleep comfortably. Is 200 going to be the yardstick ?

Palace/Burnley produces a single goal but the 4 Cup matches get 10. Current total 62 from 29, leaving 70 to play. murf will do the maths ! Busy week ahead beginning at the Amex.

About 2.1 per game so, with shootout shenanigans, still heading for 283.

Some stuff in here about post lockdown football being rubbish:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53220831


In the 288 games between the start of the season in August and the final pre-lockdown fixture on 9 March, an average of 2.7 goals per game had been scored but this has dropped to 2.2 in the 24 matches since.

Other goalscoring factors have dropped too, including shots per game - down from 25.2 to 21.5 - as well as a decrease in the conversion rate from 10.8% to 10.1%.

thanks to Darbyand for relaying the statistics of the mini season so far. murf is living in CC land at this rate of goal-scoring. Another flurry of games coming up so let's see how it looks next Tuesday. The pubs open up on the 4th !

My statistical predictions for future goalscoring take into account a number of future scenaria including the defences going down the pub in the hours leading up to kick off.

6 goals already in the 3 early Wednesday starters. Could this be the turning point. 'scenaria' murf, where did you dig that up ?

My crystal ball (made by Scenaria of Ceylon) did predict over 10 when I asked how many goals in the 6pm games.

It still says 283 is the most likely final tally but the likelihood of that has now risen to 37.8%

Wow! 17 in 4 games. 82 scored so far. Must be an ancient crystal ball (made in Ceylon) not Sri Lanka murf. The big guns are out tonight but will they continue the mini trend ?

8 more goals in today's two matches - looking odds on a final total of 283 if you ask me.

90 before the full programme weekend, 4 to 6 July, from 36 games. A niggardly 2.5 goals average, a long way from 283. Both Norwich & Bournemouth to go goal crazy today to help things along perhaps ?

Now
90/36 = 2.5
2.5*99 = 247.5

Factor in the upward trend and some possible penalty shoot out fun and call it, what, 283??

assuming Theo won't pocket his own cash, I'm quite happy with my 266-275 spread.

And reminded of listening to Radio 1 on LW.
