The Premiership by month

This normally wouldn’t justify its own post but I think it’ll be referenced fairly frequently. It kind of follows on from this post from last year.

This is a break down of attacking metrics by month, obviously goals/shots on target/total shots are on a per game basis.

Basically the only month that shows any noticeable deviation from the mean is May, with a slight uptick in goals and sh%. As a guess I imagine this is partly a sample size issue. The rest? I’m open to suggestions, maybe teams take more chances at the business end of the season, leading to better chances both for and against, and causing goals/sh% to increase?

Anyway, the conclusion here is very similar to that in the post linked above; in general the Premiership football you see in August is very similar to the Premiership football you see in May, and every month in between.
