4 losses on the trot for Saudi Steve. Going down the well.

The other day, I did a graph (for fun, obviously) showing our final league positions for every year I've been a season ticket holder. That made me wonder what it would look like game by game since we got promoted. So I did this;



I found it interesting because you can basically follow the trend line from that great start we had in our second season all the way to SG's sacking. That line says it all, we were heading for relegation under both Smith and Gerrard.

What I also found interesting is the difference since Emery took over.  The line is much more stable. Under Smith and Gerrard there are a lot of up and down swings, and aside from the end of the first season when we were in the relegation places, very little consistency.

Since Emery took over the stability is clear, as is the lack of backwards steps until the end of the season when other teams in a false position caught up their games in hand.

Can we rely on Aunty Beeb for calm analysis to the thread question?

From https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/66132139.amp
Saudi Pro League: Which players have joined Saudi teams this summer


The caption to the picture of the Al-Ettifaq manager:

“Steven Gerrard is managing in his third country after success at Rangers and the opposite at Aston Villa”

Fairly straightforwardly damning I thought.

Nice work! Must have taken a bit of time.

Nah, and it was that or do some proper work, so I guess it stands imperious as a testament to the powers of procrastination!

I thought it looked like one of the Tour stages in the Alps.
