The least impressive winners of a major football tournament (statistically) | The Knowledge

www.guardian.co.uk - Plus: absent champions in the England team, more British pundits abroad, and why Manchester United played a European game in Plymouth. Questions and answers to knowledge@theguardian.com or tweet @TheKnowledge_GU “Given Portugal’s crowning as champions of Europe and becoming objectively the most annoying, mediocre team to have done so, what is the lowest points/points per game total that the winner of a major international tournament has achieved?” asks Ross. “That is, taking 90 mins as full-time so any extra-time/penalty wins are taken as draws.” Nick Fredriksson (@NickTheStatsGuy) has gone to extraordinary lengths on this, so that we don’t have to. Nick looked into every World Cup, European Championship, Afcon, Copa América, Concacaf Gold Cup, Asian Cup and OFC Nations Cup - a total of 159 teams. Continue reading... More... (Football)

Underdog eat underdog: the victims of football’s greatest fairytale | Oliver Bullough

www.guardian.co.uk - AFC Wimbledon are a fan-owned team who have beaten the odds. But there’s a catch. They can’t have the happy ending they want unless the last greyhound racing track in London is demolishedIn the beginning, there were two stadiums by the River Wandle. On the west bank was Wimbledon Football Club. On the east bank was the greyhound track - home to the Derby, the most prestigious race in the sport.Both stadiums were rundown and shabby. But both were centres of devotion for people from all over south London. Fans poured out of the stations at Earlsfield and Haydons Road, walking in great crowds to this riverbank sports hub. They drank beer, ate chips, shouted and cheered. A road connected the stadiums, via a bridge over the Wandle, and gave its name to both: Plough Lane. Continue reading... More... (Football)
