It's because they use the Bates Algorithm for football fixtures (have done for about 30 years now) it takes into account

Alphabetic (most importantly)

Home ground geography

The only 'Human' input is for when teams enter the cup games (3rd round games) or are competing in Europe

As Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest are close together (alphabetically) we will usually play close to end of the season but is a bit earlier this season due to the amount if teams beginning with 'B' and Wigans European campaign


Sorry guys I made all that up

 

It's a really really slow day at work :s

You're sort of right, i think.

 

Doesn't it go like this:

 

1x2

3x4

4x5

5x6 etc.

 

each round of fixtures every team moves one to right (meaning down in the case of away teams) then they have to work out cup ties etc. into it

 

Not sure how they get the numbers of who's who, i guess league position of the year before would explain why it's always around the same time of year if the team keeps finishing around he same area in the table.

don't they just replace those who went up with those that went down?

When i've organised sports events we were told that that's the system they use in competitions such as the champions league so i'm guessing they might use the same here.

 

The other method seems too simple :P

I thought the bates algorithm was something like: take over club, screw over supporters, laugh at them, take out money, sell.

Not going to lie folks lovely day to be on the dole lol


Now i said that better get the job im being interviewed for

 

Or have loads of uni work, why does this always happen around deadlines!

 

i work from home 3 days a week so i can't complain!! mind you it makes going into the office on a monday and tuesday even more agonising :(

 

The amount of Football Manager you must play then.. I envy you.

 

i don't even have it :( i keep telling myself to grab it and play it in the back ground but never get around to it.

 

trust me, you can't just play it in the background.

 

you SAY you'll play it in the background, but with in minutes you'll be yelling at your forwards for missing an open goal and putting a suit on for your press conference before the cup final.

I'm disappointed that Adomah isn't starting but at least he's on the bench for if Ledesma has a similarly ineffective attempt at a performance.......Que the long range screamer from him tonight.

Unless I'm mistaken that is exactly the same team as Ipswich! Good news especially with Adomah on the bench to come on and terrorising the tired legs late on.

Trying not to jinx it, but hope our defenders stay injury free looking at our bench..

    • What a great result and I loved the lineup! Amazing how we didn’t crumble and let in loads of goals with Roberts in the team. Hopefully he gets more involvement going forward.    nice to see Spence and Johnson doing well and getting some credit too as that hasn’t happened much so far this season. Bringing them on when we are ahead may be a useful tactic given they will be more likely to have space to run into which suits them.    I know Watmore was a bit rusty as we’d expect but I think if he stays fit he could be a real bonus for us this season. 
    • Interesting question really, to which there is no easy answer. I guess it’s probably one of the essential questions of football strategy. Perhaps one of the reasons behind our excellent defensive record (so far) is that we do press, thus containing the opposition in their own half. Although playing the ball around in midfield might open up more options, it does give the other team more time to organise their defence. There is a lot to be said for counter-attacking football – basically the element of surprise – but it is risky because you are playing too much in your own half and over-relying on your defenders. I’m not a great fan of that, however good they are. To be honest, I’m quite happy with the way things are at present. Effectively we scored twice tonight (I don’t count own goals) and we were pretty clinical, which is a welcome change.  
    • Second the counter attacking style, fortunes have changed once I tried to use a high press as opposed to dominating the game with possession on Football Manager 21 haha!
    • I'd agree, with the squad available to us I don't think a full team high press quite works for us. I think sitting deeper, not pressing  as high up and letting the opposition push forwards to open up space behind their defence suits us best, with team in it's current form. Combine this with situational high presses like the first part I mentioned and as you say an emphasis on making the most from set pieces too could well be a real good tactic for us. I do think we have these basics in place already, but as you say a bit more adventure in certain areas could make all these little parts a really effective whole.
    • I'm not a massive fan of the second way and it is the way we've set up more often than not this season. But even with that general tactic I feel like there's better ways of exploiting it and we actually managed it in parts tonight - to me the key is set pieces. It we get the ball up early, do our high press then give the ball asap to Roberts, spence and tav in particular then they will draw fouls and corners. We just need to then be better at capitalising on these opportunities when we get them. It's not pretty but I do think with a couple of tweeks, the major one being more adventurous wing play, we can score a lot more goals in this system than we are.
