  • Fulham, Stoke and Reading most reliant on results at home

    By Brian Sears 14 September 2012 The 20 clubs in the Premier League have won 14,570 points between them in their stints in the Premier League in the past 20 years. Of those, 8,809 points have been won at home, or 60.5 per cent – but some clubs are much more reliant than others on […]

  • West Ham welcome ‘favourite’ opponents Fulham (but prefer them away)

    By Brian Sears 31 August 2012 West Ham, bolstered by their £1m loan man Andy Carroll, will welcome Fulham to Upton Park this weekend in the knowledge that they’ve won more Premier League points per game against Fulham than against any other current PL club.

  • Saints cling to past glories as Manchester United come calling

    By Brian Sears 30 August 2012 They roll from the tongues of Southampton fans like hallucinogenic recollections: three home league wins on the bounce against the mighty Manchester United, between April 1996 and January 1998. And what score lines they were: 3-1, 6-3 (that’s SIX-three) and, errm, 1-0. The point of this being what exactly? […]

Seven clubs in the current Premier League have never won in the PL era at Arsenal, and the first visitors of this season, Sunderland, are among them. They […]

  • The statistician’s idea of perfection: Everton at home to Fulham

    By Brian Sears 26 April 2012 Everton meeting Fulham in the Premier League is a statistician’s delight.  It happens for the 22nd time this Saturday and although it’s a mid-table battle (Fulham trail Everton by just two points) and of little consequence at the top or bottom of the league, it has intriguing statistical interest. Ten […]

  • Wolves seek respite from doom at ‘favourite’ opponents Sunderland

    By Brian Sears 13 April 2012 Wolves are trying desperately to extend their Premier League status into a fifth campaign but with a nine-point gap between themselves and safety already, and just five games to go, that looks a forlorn task.
