In case you haven’t noticed, every title is one word that ends in s.
We’ve played 3 games in the Premier League, and my beloved Leicester City sits second, one of six undefeated teams.
Considering the others are the Manchester sides, Liverpool, Swansea, and (surprise, surprise!) Watford, I’ll give this a pass mark.
The updated table:
|1||Manchester City||2046||no change|
|2||Leicester City||2030||no change|
|3||Manchester United||2030||up 1|
|5||Crystal Palace||2015||no change|
|6||Swansea City||2014||no change|
|10||Norwich City||1999||down 2|
|13||Newcastle United||1986||up 4|
|14||Tottenham Hotspur||1986||up 1|
|17||Aston Villa||1984||down 3|
|18||West Ham United||1983||down 7|
|20||West Bromwich Albion||1969||level|
It’s rather interesting to note that most teams are within 2 spots of where they would be, with only Newcastle, Southampton, Aston villa, and West Ham the real surprises.
Oh, and for those of you who want to know about how performances in European competition will affect this, the answer is: it won’t, due to the fact that no non-English teams have a rating.
And in the unlikely event that I’m able to continue this into next season, the Elo ratings of the promoted teams will be set equal to the average rating of the relegated teams.
