So, Newcastle should regress to mean and Rafa Benitez can keep them up? And Arsenal never fires Arsene Wenger as the Gunners eventually regress to mean too? I’m guessing the answer would be yes to both. I wish it weren’t so with the second one. I still think changes like that has to have some effect. Would Newcastle have a better chance staying up with Steve Mclaren or Rafa? I’m going to have to go with Rafa regardless of the statistics.
Still, I loved the book Soccernomics and find stuff like this fascinating.
