CLiCK - Charlton Life Championship Knowledge System - September 2012 Form Guide

Welcome to the brand new Charlton Life Championship Knowledge System (or CLiCK, for short). This is a new monthly feature that looks at the current form of each team and looks ahead at Charlton’s fixtures for the coming month.

CLiCK uses a highly sophisticated system that analyses the results of each team and scores wins, draws and losses relative to the standing of the team in the division and whether the game was played at home or away. This month CLiCK has deemed the three relegated sides as the top 3 sides and the 3 promoted sides as the bottom three and used last season’s table for the teams previously in the Championship. Any complaints about Charlton, therefore, being placed as 22nd should be lodged with AFKA with a £100 complaint fee so that your complaint fee can be carefully considered by a committee in the pub of the committee’s choice.

And so, on to the meat of the form guide – what does it tell us? Well, first of all, early pace setters, Blackpool, can be rightly proud of their three wins, of course, but they achieved this with relatively easy games against Leeds and Ipswich at home and Millwall away. Similarly, Middlesbrough started with the easiest set of fixtures on paper.

The most impressive two sides in the division are undoubtedly a certain club from SE7 and Sheffield Wednesday. Both teams have had tough fixtures. Charlton have achieved an impressive CLiCK rating of 62 (out of 100) and Sheffield Wednesday an even better 80.

At the bottom, Birmingham City have had the most disappointing start whilst Millwall and Wolves would have expected to start better.

In the coming month, Charlton have fixtures – Notts Forest (A), Palace (H), Derby (A), Ipswich (A), Blackburn (H). CLiCK can reveal that Derby and Palace are hopelessly out of form and should be two easy wins.

It’s a little early in the season for the CLiCK guide, but in the coming months CLiCK will be first to find the Readings of the 2012-13 season that are surging towards promotion and, of course, those that are under-performing. More news on October 1st!

    I'll explain it fully next month, but here's roughly the formula....

    If you beat the top team at home you score 24 points. If you beat the bottom team at home you score 1 point. If you draw at home you score half of the points. Results away from home are worth 1.5 times as much.

    Therefore, there is a maximum number of points you could score and a number of points you achieve. This is calculated as a percentage.

    CLiCK then shows which teams have had easy/hard games and their success in those games. I would publish a PDF in future months so that you can see the workings.

    like it but where is the table with the ratings? Otherwise makes it difficult to analyse

    I dont get how you can rate clubs after a couple of games, i see you used last season for the first fixtures, but will it be changing based on where people are in the league at the time? or is it set in stone for the year, both ways have their flaws but still like the idea if i could understand it a bit more

    After 4 games, the current league table will be used. As the season progresses, best win/unbeaten runs and worst losing/winless runs will be reported both for the whole season and currently. The scoring system is explained at the bottom of the attached PDF.

    So, their rating position will change. That's the idea.
