This post is a shrine to Man Utd interim (at current) manager.
Since taking over at Manchester United he has bought life back to the biggest club in England.
Not only has the new boss revitalised Paul Pogba, but Ole Gunnar has bought a fantastic atmosphere back to the stretford end & Old Trafford in general.
Gone are the days of ‘Boring, Boring Jose Mourinho’, now ‘Ole’s at the wheel’ is belted out from every home fan in the crowd!
Here is a quick look at why OGS will work wonders for Man Utd, even from a Football Index perspective.
Let’s now talk Football Index.
Since Ole Gunnar has taken charge, the average Performance Buzz Score is just under 80, (79.4 to be exact). There has been 4 scores over 200, with the peak score a huge 305.
Under Mourinho, it was an average performance buzz of 75. 10 Scores over 200, with a max of 278.
Now on a PB level, you can argue for and against either.
Being as United are on an unbeaten run in the Premier League, an average of 79.4 does seem a little low. As he has played less games,winning the majority, you would have thought the PB scores would be better.
As for the Scores over 200, OGS already has summed up almost half the amount Mourinho did in 16 months, but in only 3 months. This sees there is some improvement on the PB Matrix.
Peak scores are very hard to determine, however, Mourinho played far more games, so has a larger sample of which to score the maximum points. However, OGS has already scored a higher Peak Score than Mourinho ever did.
I have been unable to quantify the Media Buzz Data, as it would show majorly in favour of Mourinho, due to having more Media Buzz winning days. I could have done ‘average MB per month’ or something, but it wouldn’t be very useful in all honesty.
What does this show?
This data shows that although OGS has completely changed Man Utd’s fortunes, it hasn’t changed too much from a Team Perspective on Performance Buzz.
They have a smaller sample of games, which they have a high win percentage, so you would expect the Average PB to be significantly higher.
Does the PB Matrix efficiently represent on field performance? It’s up for debate…
