Could it be that a 6 game sample is a better reflection of the quality of a team than a 76 game sample? Let me see what my statistics book says. Oh yeah it's right here. It says "less data = better."A top side does not lose 6 home games in succession due to the loss of 2 central defenders, key players or otherwise. It just doesn't happen. And no amount of gymnastics of the mental variety will ever change that.
Could it be that Liverpool were not the world-beaters as first anticipated by fans and media pundits alike (the same thing in most cases), but rather just another run of the mill football team that happened to win the league last year, similar to Leicester, Blackburn and other one-season wonders in previous seasons?
