not a maths whiz so was wonderin...like this stuff.<br /><br />not a maths whiz so was wondering if you could tell me how you did that? What I mean is how you took the save% and adjusted it. It is taking the average shots faced by all goalies and making a ratio with it for a certain goalie and then using the average and known save % in some sort of ratio? No idea. :)<br /><br /><br />I've got a file of goalkeeper stats (past few years of a La Liga team) ... wondering if you could have a look at it and tell me where I can go from here? How I can incorporate this adjusted save % into it to see which of the 5 goalies has been the best for the team ...<br /><br />Cheers,<br />b.barthttp://www.creativeprojects.esnoreply@blogger.com
