We are in the middle of a bit of a break at the top of English football, with the clubs taking a break from league play since the New Year’s Day matches last Tuesday (though there was FA Cup action over the weekend).
This week’s rankings saw some big moves over last week, with only seven clubs not moving. The “Festive Fixtures” wreaked some havoc on our rankings, with last week’s new #1 club – West Bromwich Albion – already off the top of the rankings after a loss on New Year’s. Furthermore, our rankings compared to the league table have really diverged over the past couple of weeks, something I expect to correct itself over the next couple of weeks as transfers and loans are sorted out during the January transfer period.
