Liverpool tops home draws

Tuesday, 22nd January 2008 10:19pm
Liverpool draw against Aston Villa was its six home draw of the season and it shares top spot for home draws with Portsmouth.

Its rivals for the title Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have drawn 1, 2 and 4 respectively at home and losing none whereas Liverpool have lost once.

One other interesting fact is that Liverpool actually tops the table in terms of draws as the following table shows:


Position Team Home Away Total
1 Liverpool 6 4 10
2 Fulham 5 4 9
3 Aston Villa 1 6 7
4 Blackburn 3 4 7
5 Man City 3 4 7
6 Middlesbrough 4 3 7
7 Portsmouth 6 1 7
8 Arsenal 2 4 6
9 Bolton 3 3 6
10 Newcastle 4 2 6
11 Tottenham 1 5 6
12 West Ham 4 2 6
13 Birmingham 4 1 5
14 Chelsea 3 2 5
15 Sunderland 2 3 5
16 Wigan 3 2 5
17 Derby 1 3 4
18 Reading 2 2 4
19 Everton 1 2 3
20 Man Utd 1 2 3


Turn a few of those draws into wins and the actual league table would be totally different.

...some teams have fewer draws than teams above them on the points log standings. Which means they play at the extreme ends, either winning or losing, and given that they are at the bottom with few points shows they lose more than they win.

Should these teams instead play for draws as a strategy, don't open up and avoid defeats? I also think drawing too many games at home is a sign of too much caution and the added pressure that comes with playing in front of your supporters, Pompey and Pool, i think they are not sure about their form, they lack conviction to go full out for home wins.

Arsenal cant get the balance right from one season to the next....one season they were doing badly at home and the coming season they changed their approach and did well on the road than at home, and this season it has changed again doing better at home

Yes, I think draws show too much caution or maybe lack of cutting edge. Whether you can say that about Liverpool I don't know.
