Shamelessly stollen fae Mad, and I would recommend the thread I've linked below which discuss this further:




The Great ALBA Mystery?

This is very interesting. Very very interesting. So interesting in fact, that those of a somnolent disposition may wish to look away now.


Often I read how "we always get beaten when we're on Alba". So, in order to verify the veracity of this claim I have carried out, at no small expense to my employer, a full analysis of the Alba results since they started broadcasting in 2008/2009.


The analysis reveals that, whilst it is true that we have only won 19% of our games on Alba, we don't lose more often than we do lose.


We do perform more poorly than we have done generally, Alba games netting 0.91 Points/Game on average over the full period of analysis, compared to non-Alba games netting 1.22 Points/Game.


The moral of the story? F*ck knows, but its now dinner-time.


I shall leave you with the detail behind the analysis.


Thanks for now and sleep well.
