Crystal Palace VS Sunderland Prediction & Betting Tips

[Translation] Which La Liga club fits each Premier League team?

Good morning lads and lassies of soccer. To celebrate that the Bundesliga finally comes back I bring you the transcripton/translation of a pretty interesting video I had watched some time ago, related (and literally titled) "Which La Liga team fits each team of the Premier League?"
Now, I know the issue about fans that have simpathy for "second" teams is polarizing and as we all know after last year, it can become something completely vomitive, but this video is indeed trying to give fans of Spanish clubs reasons to like a particular English club, and with that said, tbh I believe at the end of the day most fans, plastic or not, do feel at least some simpathy for some clubs above others excluding their own. From the small town fan who supports their local club but also the "big" team that challenges for the league in the top division, to the Ultra that hates every club of their country that isn't his but do likes a foreign club of which he befriended their respective Ultras in the past, I'm pretty sure that most football fans do feel at least a bit of simpathy for some particular club of a foreign league.
But well, that discussion shouldn't be the topic of this. The fact is that these Spaniards of the video do like particular English clubs and to guide other similar Spaniards analyzed the situation and created this "guidebook" about which Premier League club "currently" fits each La Liga club, and that is what will be shown here.
With a last emphasis in the "currently", there's nothing else to say as preview. Just remember that these aren't my opinions and I'm only sharing what they decided.

Newcastle United & Athletic Club

Crystal Palace & Getafe

Liverpool & Real Madrid

Norwich & Valladolid

Bournemouth & Eibar

Burnley & Alaves

Sheffield United & Mallorca

Brighton & Levante

Leicester & Villarreal

Southampton & Leganés

Watford & Granada

Chelsea & Atletico Madrid

Tottenham & Sevilla

Manchester United & Valencia

Everton & Real Sociedad

Manchester City & Barcelona

West Ham & Espanyol

Wolves & Real Betis

Aston Villa & Celta de Vigo

Arsenal & Osasuna

*and that's it. Hope that you liked it as I did. Do you have any opinions about how to make this even more accurate? feel free to share them.

Season Summary and my Game of the Season - Last Decade - Part 1

So I'm bored so I've compiled a list of my personal highlight game of each of the last 10 seasons. This is the first 5, I'll do the last 5 in another post at some point. I've added a brief summary of the season and the game to help set the context. I have added links to highlights for each game where possible.
Join me down memory lane. Love to get your thoughts and your own personal highlights of each season.
This has taken me ages and it made me realize how many amazing games we've played over the last 10 years. It's been so hard to talk about everything and I apologise if this is a wall of text. It has really reminded me to be grateful for being able to watch this club in this era.
I go to every home game but not the away games, so I probably have some bias towards the home games.
This was the first year we were chasing a top 4 spot. It was between Tottenham, Villa and City and it went right down to the wire. A win against Villa on 1st of May kept us in prime position, then a devastating 1-0 loss to Tottenham on 5th May in the penultimate game of the season kept us out.
We signed Lescott (Everton fans hated him), Gareth Barry, Kolo, Tevez and Adebayor that year. And Roque Santa Cruz and Adam Johnson, but let's not talk about them for different reasons respectively.
Mark Hughes got sacked in December because we couldn't defend for shit.
Weirdly this season is one I have some of the fondest memories for. We had top tier players for the first time in my life. It had a wild west feel, we had so many new players and we were in a mode where we could win or lose any game. It didn't have the same pressure as some of the more recent seasons because one loss didn't derail our whole season. Even though it ended in disappointment I still absolutely loved watching City this year. We also had arguably one of the best City kits of all time this year.
By far the worst game of this season for me was the 1-0 loss to United at home. Scholes scored a fucking injury time winner and I couldn't speak to anyone for about a day I was so pissed off.
City went 1-0 down at home to that seasons PL champions after the ball bounced off Adebayor's back into his own net. Adebayor then scored a poachers goal at the right end, then Tevez completed the comeback with a low curling free kick. But that wasn't it, Chelsea got a penalty and Lampard stepped up to take it. Given guessed right and saved, securing a 2-1 win.
This is my personal favourite because the atmosphere was rocking that night. I still remember how it felt, the Given save was celebrated more than most goals. It felt like we had arrived, we'd taken on one of the best teams in the league and won.
Honourable mentions: City 4-2 Arsenal (easily could have chosen this game instead, Adebayor slide) Chelsea 2-4 City, City 3-2 Sunderland (this game got Hughes sacked, every time either team attacked they looked like scoring), United 4-3 City (If we hadn't played 20 minutes of injury time and Owen scored this might have been the best game).
This was it, we finally broke our trophyless streak and got 3rd place! Momentous season with some big moments and some big signings. This was the year we signed David Silva, Yaya Toure, Balotelli, Dzeko and Milner. New heroes were born this season and this season set the scene for the next decade at the club.
Now, I'm sure a lot of people might go for the FA Cup final as their favourite, but for me the semi was mine. This was the first time I had ever seen City play at Wembley (now it's virtually every year). Arch rivals, the team I hated most for my whole life, both meeting in the semi final. City desperate to win their first trophy for 35 years, United desperate to stop them. I was personally shiteing it this game and was not expecting to win.
Berbatov missed a great early chance that made me blurt out a few swear words in front of my dad. It was a cagey game and we were cheering any half chance. Until up steps the man, the legend, Yaya Toure. Carrick gifts him the ball, he drifts past a defenders and slides it past van der Saar right in front of the City fans. Bastard man Paul Scholes kicks Zaba and gets sent off, City reach the final and ultimately win the trophy.
Weird reminder, Tevez was the captain this season. He didn't speak any fucking English and he was the captain. Kompany was in the squad and Mancini chose Tevez. Go back look at pictures of us winning the cup and he's lifting the trophy first. Just thought that was a funny side note.
Honourable mentions - FA Cup Final 1-0 vs Stoke, City 1-0 Tottenham (Crouchy scoring the top 4 deciding goal for the second year in a row).
If the last season was a great, this one was incredible. If you wrote a script like this year people would say it seemed far fetched. There was so much drama this year, even before the finale. It's so much talked about amongst City fans I probably don't even need to go into too much detail. You probably already know which game will be my favourite because it is completely unavoidable. I will just say a few words and I bet you can work it out - 6 games - 8 points, 6-1, 1-0, 3-2.
City raced into the lead this season, we didn't lose a game until 12th December vs Chelsea. In that run was the famous 6-1 win. Do I even need to discuss that. Jesus christ what an amazing feeling after that game. Compounded by the fact that we won the league on goal difference, so that game actually did decide the title.
Unfortunately we had a bit of a slump after the mid point of the season. A loss at Swansea really hurt us (some fan got pictured on TV crying when they scored, then 2 draws and a loss to Arsenal and it looked like typical City had come back and gifted United the title.
Tevez also had an unscheduled 6 month golf break mid season. I actually went to the Bayern away game, to date the only away CL game I've been too. Hugely disappointing game, we actually had a penalty shout in the first half and it could have gone very differently. Anyway, Tevez came back at the right time and was vital to the end of the season.
I would like to mention the 3-3 Sunderland game. I still use this game in my memory today for how even if a game looks like shit, if you fight back and can get a draw it might just mean the difference at the end, even if the odds are stacked against you. I remember Balotelli arguing on the pitch with Kolarov over a free kick at 3-1 down and the fans were so close to turning on him. Both of them ended up banging in goals from outside the box to draw the game.
Also please remember that Yaya Toure scored twice away at Newcastle in a very tight game to get us one step closer.
Also weird tidbit. After we drew 2-2 early in the season to Fulham I was interviewed by BBC Radio Manchester because I was going to the club shop and they wanted reactions. They asked me something along the lines of 'is this damaging dropped points or is it just a blip.' Think I said something about draws away from home not being the end of the world. No idea if it ever got aired because I didn't listen to it.
Do I need to say anything? I'll just use this space to remind people that the perfect angel that is Zabaleta also got a goal this day and Joey Barton is a shitbag.
I was at this game and it was both horrible and amazing. When we were 2-1 down even with 5 minutes left unlike most people I still had a weird certainty we were going to win it, maybe I was in shock or denial.
There were so many other fantastic games this season.
Honourable mentions: City 4-0 Swansea (Aguero's debut and 2 goals, a superstar was born), Spurs 1-5 City (Dzeko 4), United 1-6 City, QPR 2-3 City (forgotten game, but we actually beat them 3-2 earlier in the season in a very tough game), City 2-1 Chelsea (return of the golfer), City 1-0 United (Kompany's celebration is melted in my brain), Newcastle 0-2 City.
Phew, how do you follow up such an amazing season? With a disappointing one of course. Lackluster signings and Mancini allegedly losing the dressing room cost us this year. Our biggest signing Jack Rodwell only joined while I was driving down to Birmingham for the Charity Shield match vs Chelsea. We won that 3-2 but that was to be the only silverware that season.
Too many draws in the start of the season cost us and we never really got going this year. A lot of teams chanted 'boring boring City' due to Mancini's very defensive style. We finished rock bottom of our CL group, the second time in a row we had failed to qualify.
United carried by van Persie comfortably won the PL without us ever really being close. His free kick to beat us 3-2 at the Etihad was haunting (damn you Nasri block it properly). A horrible day out at Wembley watching us get giant-killed by Wigan sealed Mancini's fate.
The fans still loved him though. Some chanted 'you can shove your Pellegrini up your arse' at Wembley (I did not approve and this did not age well and he took out a full page ad in the MEN to than the fans. The fans responded with one for him in an Italian newspaper. taking one out in I still to this day absolutely love Mancini. He dragged us out of the shadow and showed nothing but fire and passion for the club. He was a true friend to the City fans and an all time legend.
A really tough game. Milner got sent off about 20 minutes in and we went 1-0 down through a Shane Long lucky goal. We still looked the better team and Dzeko was subbed on and scored a header.
It's still 1-1 heading into injury time and it looks like we've pissed away 2 points. But suddenly City break, Aguero slides a perfect ball through to Dzeko and he bangs it in from just outside the box. He rips his shirt off and celebrates with the fans after coming off the bench to score 2 goals to win a game we had played the majority of with 10 men. After scoring a late winner the month before vs Fulham away he cemented his unwanted label as a super sub.
Honourable mentions - United 1-2 City, Real Madrid 3-2 City (we looked like we had done them at home, but they snatched it with two goals with less than 5 minutes left), Arsenal 0-2 City.
Enter Pellegrini. This was our first title battle against Liverpool and foreshadowed the past two years. Big Bren did a great job at Liverpool, sending them into fits of hysterical bizarre memes in typical Liverpool fashion. This was very similar to the 2011/12 season in that we pissed away the title and then had to fight back to win it on a knife's edge. I remember reading articles mid way through the season talking as if Liverpool had already won the league. Their fans were singing "we're gonna win the league" in April. They brought out a book about nearly winning the league.
But then Gerrard slipped, Suarez cried, the Scousers dream had fucking died, City win, five in a row, we're all singing Edin Dzeko, Edin Dzeko.
Anyway enough indulgence in looking at them, back to City. We signed Fernandinho this year, along with Navas, Negredo, Jovetic and the legend that is Demichelis.
After playing some dreary football under Mancini at times, Pellegrini introduced flowing attacking football and now we turned the 'boring boring City' chants into ironic ones. We finally got out of our Champions League group for the first time, only to be knocked out by Barca in the next round.
Negredo was a great impact player for the first part of the season, but a shoulder injury vs West Ham seemed to make him permanently lose his form. Navas was a great injection of pace even if he couldn't cross to save his life.
This season belongs to Yaya Toure though. The man that had scored all the important goals to win our first 2 trophies found another level this year. He was borderline unplayable at times, scoring 20 goals from midfield. There were two highlights for me a run from the halfway line past Villa defenders and then a curled finish. The other was of course the league cup final goal vs Sunderland. Facing towards the touchline he curled it into the top corner from miles outside the box, don't think I've ever seen a goal like it.
Let me also take a moment to point out United's demise. Ferguson left and in stepped Moyesey. They were piss poor and finished 7th. They have never really recovered since this year.
A patchy start to the season got us off badly, but we recovered around DecembeJanuary to be back in the fight. Unfortunately the results from February did not go in our favour and with Suarez and Sturridge scoring for fun we fell behind. We lost 3-2 at Anfield (I hate that place) and then a 2-2 draw at home to Sunderland looked like all our title hopes were over.
Okay can I point out again that another come from behind draw against Sunderland, when behind in the title race, seems to have saved our title winning season? Why do things seem to repeat themselves in football? Crouch scoring in the same fixture two years in a row to seal the CL spot, then Sunderland going ahead at the Etihad only for us to peg them back in the last few minutes?
Anyway, step up Demba Ba, slip down Gerrard and we're back in the lead. Crystal Palace finish the job. Unlucky lads, you'll have to put the pre-made Champions scarves back in the cupboard for another year.
We just fucking smashed them. This was arguably a more dominant performance than the 6-1 game. They did not stand a chance this game even with 11 men.
Aguero started the scoring with a tricky volley with the ball played in just behind him. Yaya poached one just before half time. Aguero got one more before Nasri hammered a volley underneath De Gea. Ratbag Rooney scored a free kick, but honestly 4-1 flatters them. It could have been 10-0 on another day.
A small aside, before every derby game Rooney used to run right over towards the City fans, sometimes flapping his arms about etc. trying to wind us up. Loads of times when he's scored vs City he's cupped his ears and shit like that. Any time when we hammer them I used to love watching him walk off with his tail between his legs.
Honourable mentions - United 0-3 City, City 6-0 Spurs (Navas scored a banger 11 seconds into the game), Everton 2-3 City (big Joe Hart against Naismith save helped win the title), City 6-3 Arsenal, City 7-0 Norwich, Spurs 1-5 City, City 5-0 Fulham (Demichelis scored a wonder goal).

Predicting Promoted Club Survival Rates in the Premier League, based on Championship Performance [OC]

Background

The introduction of the Playoffs has brought added spice to the end of season drama, but some argue that it dilutes the strength of the PL by having potentially weaker teams secure promotion via this method.
I will have a look at this in the post below and discuss how worthy this argument is, amongst some other bits and bobs including taking a look at already Promoted Championship sides from 2016/17 (Newcastle and Brighton). I had a vested interest in this as a Fulham fan, but we are no longer a part of this party, so I am instead looking at the remaining two contenders, in addition to Champions: Newcastle, and Runners Up: Brighton.
Next week's Championship Playoff final will be the 22nd (since the PL became 20 teams), and will be contested between Premier League virgins Huddersfield, and old faeces (that’s right you pieces of shit), Reading who have had the fortune of being promoted as champions in 2005-06 and 2011-12.
I will consider historic promotion data, look to add some weight to old arguments, and hopefully uncover some new stuff along the way. This post will go through some of the stats from this years Championship, and see how they perform when predicting the likelihood of a promoted team becoming established in the Premier League. For the purposes of this piece, I am using the term 'established' to mean a team that achieves 5+ consecutive years in the PL.
 
So... Here is the full history of promotions:
Season Team Championship Status
2016–17 Newcastle United Winner
2016–17 Brighton Runner-up
2016–17 Reading Playoffs
2016–17 Huddersfield Playoffs

1996-97 Crystal Palace Playoffs
1995-96 Sunderland Winner
1995-96 Derby County Runner-up
1995-96 Leicester City Playoffs
Anything with a star denotes a team that has been promoted to the Premier League and who have not yet been relegated.
 

Who are the promotion kings?

Winners Total
Sunderland 4
Newcastle United 2
Reading 2
Sunderland have won the league 4 times since the inception of the playoffs. Watch out next year lol. Newcastle have just secured their second Championship Title. Last time they hung around in the PL for a while... Reading also have 2 titles, including the win in 05-06 which saw them collect the MOST amount of points in a Championship Season (During the Playoff Age) with 106. They hold secured the greatest Goal Difference in a single season with +67.
 
Runners Up Total
West Bromwich Albion 3
Birmingham City 2
Middlesbrough 2
Boing Boing, the Baggies have been promoted FOUR times, but three of them are as best of the rest.
This year, Brighton have secured the highest Runner-up pts total in Playoff History with 93, matching Burnley's tally as runners up in 2013/14. Incidentally this was also Burnley’s Title winning season haul in 15/16.
 
Playoff Wins Total
Crystal Palace 3
Hull City 2
Watford 2
West Ham United 2
Palace are the kings of the Playoffs, and have won promotion 3 times via this route. Other sides who favour the Playoffs are Hull (15/16), and West Ham (11/12), who both arrived in the PL via this route for a second time... More on this in a bit..
 
Team Total Promotions
Sunderland 4
West Bromwich Albion 4
Birmingham City 3
Burnley 3
Crystal Palace 3
Hull City 3
Leicester City 3
Norwich City 3
Watford 3
So in total, there are some common names that have enjoyed plenty of promotion joy since the playoffs were introduced. Palace obviously have benefitted more than anyone, but there are collections of teams who have yo-yo'd between the top 2 divisions.
 

On Average, how long do promoted teams stay for?

So in the 21 Years of Playoff history that's 63 promotions (21 Winners, 21 Runners up and 21 Playoff Champions), how long do promoted teams last with the big dogs? Let's have a look at the spread..
Length of Stay Total Clubs as %
1 Season 29 47
2 Seasons 8 13
3 Seasons 3 5
4 Seasons 1 2
5+ Seasons 12 18
Not Yet Relegated (NYR) 10 16
Total Promotions 63 -
So yeah you may have guessed it..
 

What difference does it make where you finish?

Well some would argue that promoted teams are weaker as they finish below the automatic promotion sides. How does this stack up? Well, I looked at the average length of stay for each promotion method, and there is indeed a significant difference...
Postion Average Length of Stay
Winners 3.95
Runner-up 3.67
Playoffs 2.71
 
So now that we know Championship Winners generally last longer than Playoff winners, let’s take a look and try to understand why?
Some of the metrics that suggest a good side are Goals Scored, Overall Goal Difference, Points, and Goals Conceded. All these metrics give an overall impression of how strong a side is...
I am aware that teams and tactics change, but in the short term i.e. first 1 or 2 seasons following a promotion, these metrics provide an indicator regarding a teams playing style, strengths and weaknesses. Again these do change from one season to the next, but fuck it, let’s have a look anyway cos I already crunched the numbers.
 

Points

Teams who storm the division usually take a lot of points. But are points an accurate predictor of if a team is likely to avoid the PL trapdoor after promotion?
Season Team Championship Status Champ Pts GF GA GD Length of Stay
2005–06 Reading Winner 106 99 32 67 2
1998-99 Sunderland Winner 105 91 28 63 4
2013–14 Leicester City* Winner 102 83 43 40 4
2009–10 Newcastle United Winner 102 90 35 55 6
2000-01 Fulham Winner 101 90 32 58 13
2001-02 Manchester City Winner 99 108 52 56 15
2002-03 Portsmouth Winner 98 97 45 52 7
1996-97 Bolton Wanderers Winner 98 100 53 47 1
63% success is significantly higher than the 35% average, so pick up lots of points on the way to promotion and you stand a good chance of staying up in the medium to long term. None of this year’s teams have chalked up that many points so we will have to look elsewhere..
 

Goal Difference

Points are sometimes harder to come by if the division is more competitive. So let’s look at Goal Difference as this can also give an indication of a teams quality. Below are the Top 10 previous GD scores.
Season Team Championship Status Champ Pts GF GA GD Length of Stay
2005–06 Reading Winner 106 99 32 67 2
1998-99 Sunderland Winner 105 91 28 63 4

2001-02 Manchester City Winner 99 108 52 56 15
2009–10 Newcastle United Winner 102 90 35 55 6
2014–15 AFC Bournemouth Winner 90 98 45 53 3
2002-03 Portsmouth Winner 98 97 45 52 5+
1996-97 Bolton Wanderers Winner 98 100 53 47 1
2016–17 Newcastle United Winner 94 85 40 45 TBC
2004–05 Wigan Athletic Runner-up 87 79 35 44 8
2009–10 West Bromwich Albion Runner-up 91 89 48 41 7
This years Newcastle side are actually of the GD vintage having achieved the 9th best GD in Championship history (+45) since the inception of the playoffs.. As a result, they make a strong case for avoiding the drop in 2017/18 and also for going on to secure long term top flight status.
 
Now let’s look at the 10 worst GD scores for sides who have been promoted...
Season Team Championship Status Champ Pts GF GA GD Length of Stay
2009–10 Blackpool Playoffs 70 74 58 16 1
2006–07 Derby County Playoffs 84 62 46 16 1
2007–08 Stoke City Runner-up 79 69 55 14 NYR
2008–09 Burnley Playoffs 76 72 60 12 1
2012–13 Crystal Palace Playoffs 72 73 62 11 NYR
2003-04 Crystal Palace Playoffs 73 72 61 11 1
2004–05 West Ham United Playoffs 73 66 56 10 5+
2012–13 Hull City Runner-up 79 61 52 9 2
1998-99 Watford Playoffs 77 65 56 9 1
1995-96 Leicester City Playoffs 71 66 60 6 5+
2016–17 Reading Playoffs 85 68 64 4 TBC
2016–17 Huddersfield Playoffs 81 56 58 -2 TBC
Basically though, if you can’t do the business at both ends of the pitch, there is a good chance you will be relegated.
 
You will hopefully notice that at the bottom of the pile are this years Reading and Huddersfield sides.
Whoever wins this game will be promoted with the lowest Goal Difference since the inception of the playoffs. Worrying.
Rather than just looking at GD holistically, let's consider the specifics.
 

Are you more likely to stay up if you can score bags of goals?

2001-02 Manchester City Winner 99 108 52 56 15

2009–10 Newcastle United Winner 102 90 35 55 6
2009–10 West Bromwich Albion Runner-up 91 89 48 41 7
 
To confirm this, lets look at teams who were promoted with less than impressive scoring records.. If we look at the sides who have been promoted, who averaged less than 1.5 goals per game (69 Total)...

This does not read well for these teams..
You will notice this years Playoff sides Reading and Huddersfield, are both in this category...
Huddersfield if promoted, will have the second worst goals scored total in playoff history. It's worth noting there are some REALLY crappy teams on this list.
So OK, I hear some of you say, 'it's not all about scoring goals, defending is the key to staying up'..
 

"Don't concede, you won't get beat"

Looking at the sides who have been promoted having conceded the most amount of goals, we can see how long they tend to stick around..

If Reading are promoted they will hold the worst defence in promotion history, conceding a whopping 64 goals. Among them for company are the Palace 03-04, and Watford 98-99 teams who both haemorrhaged goals in the PL.
If Huddersfield are promoted they will hold the worst Goal Difference in promotion history since the inception of the playoffs, and will in fact be the only team to ever secure promotion to the Premier League with a NEGATIVE goal difference. They also have T6 worst defence in history of playoffs. Other sides who have been promoted with less than double digit goal differences have all met the same grim fate in the Premier League (barring Leicester’s 95-96 team).
 

What about teams that are not so porous?

Looking at the very best defences, and teams who concede less than a goal every 1.4 games or '0.7 goals per game':

This is very interesting, as it suggests defensive teams are able to fight off the drop in their first year, but are often found lacking in the second. As a tactic, it appears that 'Keeping it tight' alone is not enough to secure long term PL status.
It is therefore worth noting that although some of these sides had excellent defensive records, they were often lacking going forward. In fact the three sides with the lowest 'Goals For' in this table were all relegated in their first season.
So what does this mean? Well Its fair to say you can’t draw conclusions just from this, however it’s clear that if you concede a lot of goals in the Championship, you will be relegated early on in your Premier League escapade. Likewise, if you can’t score goals, you will struggle to survive. That is why goal scorers are so highly prized... So now let’s take a look at top goal scorers for all the teams who were promoted, and see what role they have played in promotion and how that might predict survival rates..

Quite obviously at the top of the table you can see a lot of teams have a length of stay of 5+ years and you would be right to assume that this means, if you have a goal scorer, you will score more goals and your chances of survival will be greatly improved.
We covered this from a team aspect in 'goals for' but this doesn't always tell the full story. Some teams are heavily reliant on one player for their goals and some spread them amongst the side.
In the above table, there is a column "% of goals". This represents the percentage of the teams goals scored by the top scorer. A higher percentage means the team were more reliant on the striker, a lower percentage means the team were not so reliant on the player.

Palace picked up 12 more points by conceding 14 fewer goals… So yes, as above, shut up shop in your first season and you really do improve your chances.
 

What about teams who have a 'goal scorer' but are not reliant on just that 1 player for Goals?

When you look at teams who have a goal scorer who nets at least 25, but where these goals amount to no more than 1/3 of the teams goals:

00-01 Winner Fulham Louis Saha 27 90 30 5+
02-03 Winner Portsmouth Svetoslav Todorov 26 97 27 5+
Both Brighton and Newcastle have strikers who should have hit that mark this year (Glenn Murray and Dwight Gayle, both 23 Goals, 30% and 27% respectively), so maybe we should expect both these sides to mount a strong challenge when it comes to survival, and actually going on beyond the 1st season. Brighton will however, no doubt be handicapped by the fact Glenn Murray will turn 34 next year.
 

What about when teams spread the goals around?

When you consider teams who have a top scorer who contributes less than 1/4 of the teams goals, you can identify those teams who 'share goals around'.
 

How many goals does a teams top scorer need in order to have a realistic impact on survival?

This doesn't bode well for Huddersfield, as their top scorer has only 12 Goals this year.
Reading are better off with Kermorgant who has netted 18 times, but this is some way off an outstanding return.
 
*Basically, if you share the goals around too much, you nulify your threat. If you rely too heavily on one player, you risk becoming sterile. If you rely too heavily on one player and they do not score enough, you are proper fucked.
 

What about the argument that "first timers are Naive to the Premier League"?

Let’s look at teams who were promoted for the first time. In doing this, I have excluded teams that were in Premier League prior to achieving their first promotion.. So teams like Newcastle, Palace & Blackburn who were all in the PL but were promoted after being relegated are not included as they are not true 'first timers'.
So looking at 'True First Timers', there is a rather interesting split.

There have been a total of 19 'First Timers' since the inception of the playoffs... 20 if you include Brighton this year, and it will climb to 21 if Huddersfield can secure promotion..
It is true then, that First Timers are at a higher risk of being relegated straight away. First Timers are however, no less likely to go on and become an established PL side, so there is cause for optimism amongst next years virgins..
 
Brighton Fans can look to Stoke City as the model for 'True First-Timers' establishing themselves in the PL after being runners up in the Championship.
Huddersfield Fans can only really turn to Swansea City for inspiration when looking at noob teams who have established themselves in the PL via the playoffs.
Huddersfield fans may also be alarmed when they look at other first timers who have been promoted via the playoffs.. Every other team besides Swansea have been relegated at the first attempt. Amongst them are the horrid Watford side who were relegated from the PL in 1999-00 with a then record low pts tally.
 

How well does this model perform on 2015/16 promoted teams?

Burnley - 15/16 Champions: Andre Gray Top Scored with 23 (31.9%) of Burnley's total goals (72), but he actually got 25 for the season as he scored 2 for Brentford. Whilst they did not score sackfulls of goals, Burnley had a healthy Goal Difference (+37), so under the model above you would expect them to make a case for survival. They did in fact manage to stay up.
Middlesbrough - 15/16 Runners Up: David Nugent Top scored for Boro with a lowly 8 (12%) of Boro's total Goals (69). Whilst they had a very strong defensive record, they did not score enough goals in the Championship, and that was ultimately their undoing in the PL this year. The model would have predicted that Boro would be relegated, and again it would have been correct.
Hull - 15/16 Playoffs: Were always in danger as the Playoff team, and had a reasonable GD ratio. Again, Hull did not rip up the record books with their goal scoring (Only managed 69) but were not overly reliant on Abel Hernandez who scored 20 (28%) of their total. As Hull simply did not score enough, and were coming up through the playoffs, this would have been a marginal call. Given the data behind playoff teams success rates, the lack of Goals Scored and with an 'Average' Top scorer, it probably would have plumped for Hull to be relegated.
 
At the risk of Over simplifying this, there is a strong case for 'Scoring Goals' as the number 1 predictor of if a team is likely to stay up, and become an established PL side
 

What does this mean for the 2016/17 promoted clubs?

Newcastle are in a strong position, and history/form suggests that they will go on and gain a foothold in the PL. There is only a small chance they will be relegated based on their league finish, Total Goal scored, % of team goals scored by top scorer, and given their history as a PL side. Make no mistake, this is a very good Newcastle side, who should go on and become a fully fledged PL outfit over the next few years.
Brighton are well positioned to make a really good go at staying in the PL beyond 1 year. Yes they are a first time visitor, but first timers can go on to establish in the PL. Generally Runners up perform similarly to Champions, so given that this Brighton side matched the previous best tally achieved by a Runner Up, and were only a point behind Newcastle, the signs are there that this is a decent team. They were reliant on Glenn Murray more than Newcastle relied on Gayle, but not enough to make them one dimensional. Glenn Murray's age is a concern, but he done the business for Palace when landed in the PL in 13/14.
Reading and Huddersfield are both in for a whole lot of pain, whoever goes up. Neither side have a strong Goal Difference which suggests that they will struggle to pick up many points next year. History does not favour teams from the playoffs either, and with Reading holding the worst defence in the history of promoted teams, I would not bet against them going straight back down. Alarmingly Huddersfield have not scored anywhere near enough goals to make them look anything like staying longer than 1 year in the PL. Neither side have scored enough goals, and this is a big worry. It is possible if Huddersfield win promotion, they could go down with a record low points total. Whoever goes up, I would say, make an almost irrefutable case for coming straight back down.
 
So in summary, the Playoffs, although exciting, more often than not provide the Premier League with fodder. Good luck to the Playoff finalists next week. You both are sure as fuck gonna need it.
 
TLDR:
1. Points are not the only indicator of how successful promoted teams are/will be in the PL.
2. Teams who score lots of goals, but are not overly reliant on 1 striker tend to do very well in the PL.
3. Teams who concede a lot of goals in the Championship do badly in the PL.
4. Teams with strong Championship defences are able to survive in the PL in the Short Term but do not stay for long if they cannot score.
5. Teams that win the Championship are more likely to not only survive in the PL, but also to go on and prosper.
6. Playoff Teams are more likely to be relegated at the first attempt and are much less likely to go on and have a prolonged stay in the PL.
7. Newcastle have a VERY strong chance of staying up. They are well positoned to go on and become an established PL side.
8. Brighton have a good chance of staying up next year and are also in with a good chance of becoming an established PL side.
9. Reading and Huddersfield are both well and truly fucked.
 
Disclaimer: I might have just made this entire post to make myself and other Fulham fans feel better about not achieving promotion this year. There were some alarm bells that I should have heard ringing (lack of a top quality goal scorer in particular) that I perhaps underestimated as a fan.
All in all, it will look as though this is the most amount of effort anyone has ever made to rub salt in a winners face, and yeah you'd probably be right. What you gonna do?
 
EDIT: Please also allow me to draw attention to my Previous post "An Analysis of English Football League Managers based on Previous Pedigree as a Professional" which predicted that Newcastle and Brighton would be promoted... although this was after half a season...I also plumped for spurs in that post... so don't believe everything you read on the Internet kids.

Crystal Palace VS Sunderland Prediction & Betting Tips by 007soccerpicks.com. Soccer Picks; FullTime Result; Half Time Result; Double Chance; Asian Handicap; Match Goals Crystal Palace v Sunderland - Betting Preview. A last minute penalty denied Palace an away win last weekend. Although their form line now reads Won 2, Drawn 3, Lost 4, Scored 13 and Conceded 16, they are a much improved side under Neil Warnock. They don’t have much of a problem scoring either having netted in 7 out of 9 games so far this season. A Palace victory certainly looks the way to go here, though, while Zaha would be a sensible selection to get his name on the scoresheet any time. Here are this preview’s betting tips: Crystal Palace to beat Sunderland with under 2.5 goals scored in total at 16/5 with BoyleSports. The tip and bet suggestion for the Sunderland vs Crystal Palace match, on 1 March 2016, of the preview written by the editors of Online Betting Academy, goes to: Under 2,5 goals ⇒ odd 1.70 at bet365. Crystal Palace have only been up at the half in one of their last eight at home against bottom-six sides, but seven of their last 10 league goals have come in the second half, and we think they’ll overwhelm Sunderland in the second period. Draw/Crystal Palace looks promising at 4.5.
