    Hi,

    With the new format in the Ireland premier league this season, is the end of the 1st half of the season to be treated as the end of round 16 as stated in this article? Or would it be the end of round 18, which is exactly half of this season? Want to make sure I switch to the second half system at the right time.

    Thanks.

      Hi Simon,

      I will update the article over the weekend with the various Summer League dates now that most of them are known.

      You are right – end of Round 18 (19th May) signals the close of the first half of the season in Ireland.

      Second half of season systems in Ireland should begin with the round of matches commencing on 21st May.

      Thanks for taking the trouble to write.

    Hi, i read all your stuff but never posted.

    Im making something that looks at the “book” and finds pricing errors.

    I can not think of a logical way to price matches between “NEW” teams (ones that have just been promoted) and existing teams.

    It is very hard to get anything making much sense pricewise with so few games played in most of the leagues.

    Got any tips on how to deal with NEW teams in Imature leagues ? ANything you have ever wrote on this would be very helpfull – I cant find anything on this subject.

      Hi Semnomic,

      Thanks for your comment.

      We have written in the past about the issue of calculating odds for league newcomers and agree it is an unreliable science.

      Better to concentrate on teams with longer track records in the leagues you are looking at.

      I hope this helps in some small way.

        Thanks for link – What I’m looking at is using history from newcomers LAST season, applying a sort of weighting to it and combining it back into current season. So although the HDA numbers + total goals etc are high for last season they get diluted yet give some credit. As the season progresses I dilute less and less until about 50% of way through season where NO old data is used…

      Hi Daniel,

      Your wish is my command!

      Everything duly updated – still a few gaps in the Winter League programme (Greece and a few end-of-season uncertainties), but this calendar article will continue to be amended as soon as dates become fixed…
