Is it just me or have some of the scorelines this season been a big surprise ?

I couldnt believe City lost 5-2 at home to Leicester and conceded three pens and then Leicester went and lost 3-0 at home to Westham, very strange. Man United stomped 6-1 at home, Villa beating Liverpool 7-2, what the "have a nice day" is going on ? or is it all down to the pandemic ?

thoughts anyone ?

Each week I recreate the weeks' Premiership games in CF and run the matches and then compare the results to what happens in reallife, and normally the system gets about 85% of the results correct and I know things are working well, this season so far the system has recreated just 25% of the actual results...

I think that the fact there has been no real pre-season, some teams are still signing players, some didn't stop playing until the latter stages of the European tournaments. The start of this season was always going to be strange because of the Covid impact .... and it really is.

Yes, definitely lack of pre-season is a contributor. I reckon results will start to get more normalised again in a month or so - of course, by then 'confidence' will probably be all over the place.

Lack of a crowd also means that there's less pressure on fragile teams...

85% success rate is pretty good Paul! Do you put the correct players in the RL teams?

I agree that certain teams will have had a better preseason, and a early international break wouldn't have helped the situation. This is our second international break and some teams only played 3 games.... Some players will have played more international games then Club games...

I feel the intensity of certain players will have dropped due to absent fans, but on the flip side some of these players are looking average at best, and they are some of the best players in the league and with or without fans, players should be turning up!

Overall though, very entertaining  lol!

Think the crowd factor Andy raised is correct. With the lack of 50000 people getting on your back it means the more fragile teams get a benefit of less pressure. 

Clearly the exception to prove the rule are Forest because we're so disorganised that pressure or not we still get turned over by everyone we play. If the fans were in Lamouchi would be gone and several of the players would have taken early retirement. I'm looking at you Tobias Figueriedo and Lewis Grabban.

Totally agree about the crowds , players have no pressure and there is no atmosphere to gage sense of feeling in the crowd.

If the Bridge was full we would not have beaten Palace 4-0 on Saturday as the groans at half time would have set the tone. gutted not to be able see 3,000 scousers and 70,000 Mancs having breakdowns live on tv though  Sad
