  1. Laurence, I don’t know what happened, but it sounded like your guests were under water when I listened straight from the epltalk page.

    1. Hi cnl!

      Thanks for the heads up. Compression was good on this pod. Kartik and Matt were both in strange/new locations but we made the judgement to go ahead and see how it went.

      Audio will be returned to usual quality at the weekend!


  2. Some constructive criticism, or at least that’s how I hope it’s taken: Kartik needs to work on his delivery. He’s a loud, intense talker who seems to breathe through his mouth, and I can hear him having to catch his breath, and I personally find it hard to listen to (maybe I’m alone in this). I might suggest he dial it back a bit, it could help his audio presence.

  3. I have to take a shot at the alternative standings. No offense but really? Everybody in the EPL plays the same schedule. The only functional difference is that if you are a QPR, you don’t get to play QPR twice, and if you are a Chelsea you don’t have to play against yourself. The net difference between the worst team and the best team is about 4 points based on SOS.. If you are the worst team in the league you should get 0.5-1 points from two matches against the best, and if you are the best team you should get 4.5-5 points from the worst on average. You need to take a look at american sports blogs and I’d focus on football outsiders, fangraphs, and baseball prospectus. Start with pythagorean record.. Take goal differential and translate it to an expected point total based on historical data. Move on to items like $/point if you want to evaluate teams based on actual regressed to investment performance… something like((Transfer spending(delta)X2) + (Wages))/Points… You could even do an expectation table.. define success.. Then you look at things like goals above replacement level and player evaluation tools.. I’d like to see an analysis that takes into account depth/games played/effect on a squad.
