Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

The top-rated defense in the UFL, clean sheets & what club cuts it close

UFL Division One data: the top-rated defense, clean sheets, and what club cuts it close.

We did a table sorting out the goals scored and concede by all the ten clubs. The data is updated all the way to last Saturday, April 27. 

What can we infer from the table?

1.    The top-rated defense in the league is Global.
2.    Save for PAF and PA, the other eight clubs score better in the second half. Pasargad scored better but they also give up more goals.
3.    The top four clubs – Stallion, Global, Loyola, and Kaya make the best adjustments after the break. Kaya has been resilient of late in the second half with the matches against Loyola, Global and Green Archers United boosting their stock.
4.    Loyola is still the best scoring club. They’ve improved their defense a bit but the question is, will it be enough to conquer Stallion and Global?
5.    Green Archers United, PAF, and PA give up a lot of early goals. That not only puts them in an early hole but more often that not, it puts the fight out of them.
