Correlations

  Goals

This section looks at the relationship between a pair of variables from the game. For instance, the first item, Fouls, is measured against yellow cards for each team within that season. Is there a relationship between fouls and yellow cards and if so, how many fouls does it take on average, for a card to be a given ? And perhaps more importantly,how different is this from one team to another ?

The goals menu item above shows the relationship between turning shots on target to goals. The predicted value is key here - if it is negative then your team is not doing as well as the average, if positive then it is doing better.
