Here comes the new year

This is where we all are at the beginning of the new year

And this is where the teams are...

Heading towards Christmas

That's 15 rounds completed. Let's see where everybody is.I don't think the Guardian's ''expert'' is playing any more, neither is Nathalie (her scores are still on last season's group). But I still like to see them on the graph, if only to show how much better you can do simply by turning up. Red had a good week last round and picked up a place, and like mikejapan, he put more points on the board than the top player. Mikejapan has broken away from the pack, standing just above the 100 points mark. Let's see whether we can catch him...

We're about a third of the way there

Our front players are grouping in the 90s getting ready to break the hundred barrier. Meanwhile, the top players seem to have increased their lead over us. But are we bothered?
At least we've seen off Matt Le Tissier, (blue line and triangles) who has either forgotten his log in or given up for good.

6 Rounds down

These are the mini-league players', plus a couple of others, positions. Stoke relinquished his lead last week but took off on a charge after the game's top player this week.

Remember the night-sky spaghetti graph? It looks a little less ornate so far:

And it's all kicked off again

So, gently into the new season.

I'll start with a simple graph of the teams that have played so far. I'll add and refine as I go along.

Now where were we?

A while ago I had a couple of small crashes followed by a complete loss of all my files, photos, music, everything.... I decided I couldn't even begin to get all the records back together again but I've got some of them.

First there's the league positions since the crash.

Then there's the graph of our points. I've got the figures by looking back through the whole long history of the ''Standings after round !'' thread that started back in August 2008.

One of the reassuring things about this graph is that the gap between top and bottom is not as large as you might first have thought. Because they're all very close together it's a bit difficult to make out individual positions but it's better than nowt. I hope.

Finally there's what I used to call the spaghetti graph. There's lots of gaps but that's because not everybody has published their positions in the thread.

And finally, I was having a rest this Saturday on the side of the road after having cycled a fair old distance when along came this steam traction engine, towing a 4 x 4, doing about 2 mph and generally holding up traffic. It was only when I looked closely at the photo that I noticed the prancing horse logo on the front. And the livery is definitely red. There's no doubt about it, it's a prototype Ferrari!
