Sunderland Relegated and Newcastle Stability In Football Observatory Predictions
The CIES Football Observatory have now presented their predictions for the big five European leagues.
Their predictions are based on analysis of player profile data (matches played and results achieved), ‘prolifigacy’ (goals scored and level of the competition), and the ’stability’ (number of seasons with club and the years remaining on contract).
Last season they predicted 8th for Newcastle and the actual finish was 10th, while Sunderland finished 14th after a prediction of 16th.
Past seasons have regularly seen their computer model between two and three positions out on average.
This season they have predicted the following final placings;
- Manchester City
- Manchester United
- Newcastle United
- West Brom
- West Ham
- Aston Villa
- Crystal Palace
I’d settle for the above for Newcastle AND Sunderland at this precise moment in time.
