Utaka tops Actim Index

Utaka tops Actim Index

It has been brought to my attention by russellm, who has just returned to France, that John Utaka was toping the Actim Index.

With Utaka a star name in France clearly more interest has been paid in this than it had in England, although he is starting to become a star name in England after his highly impressive start to the season.

I looked into this information and sure enough Utaka is toping this Actim Index not only in terms of the top midfielder but also the top performer full stop with 108 points, 1 point ahead of Frank Lampard in both areas.

Some may say big deal - but these Actim Index Stats do play a major role in football these days, with them being something that players, managers and coaches of all teams study and look at, as they are statistical proof of how well players are playing, particularly in certain areas of their game.

How does the Actim Index work?

These are the official Actim stats explained, as shown on the English Premier League Actim Index website.

'Actim Stats are a collection of team, player and match statistics.

'They are derived from all the actions that take place during a match, including goals, shots on target, corners, fouls, offsides, passes, tackles, blocks and clearances. The raw data can be used to generate a wide range of tables and statistics such as player profiles, team and player head-to-heads and form guides.

'PA Sport gathers match data for every Barclays English Premier League, Coca-Cola Championship and Scottish Premier League game.

'The data is gathered by two methods - real-time match analysis and the study of video footage. The real-time analysis is conducted by ex-professional footballers that report on action at the grounds as it happens. Further, more detailed analysis is obtained by studying videos of the matches'.

So it is official, statistically Utaka is the Premierships best performer!

Well that again proves the point I make consistently that HR knows a player and everyone else says "Who?"

Well it promises to be an interesting clash. as Ron Atkinson would say "I think either team could win this or it could even be a draw".

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
