A view of the PTFC Schedule 1/3 of the way into the season

After the Chivas game this weekend, we'll be roughly 1/3 through the season. Time flies when you're having fun.

So I thought I'd do a quick view of the calendar to see how it ebb's and flow's through the season.

This is just a quick chart breaking the season into third's (11, 12, 12) and within each third analyzing the % of home games as well as caliber of the opponent (based on their average conference placement as of 5/9... i.e low numbers are higher current placements/better teams).

Summary % at home Home Avg Away Avg
First 11 55% 4.33 4.8
Mid 12 42% 5.25 4.28
Final 12 58% 5.15 6.6

So... the next third of the season is fairly road heavy (7 of 12) against fairly high quality opponents. That's the bad news.

The good news is the last third of the season is home based (7 of 12) against arguably the weakest part of the schedule.

So... if we can stay in the hunt through the middle third we seem to have a good shot.

Of course this will all change if teams charge up the chart ne Seattle...

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
