Key:

The league-table rankings are shown in the centre of the table, with the alt-3 league position in bold to the right, and the more standard league-table position (based on points already in the bag, with goal-difference to resolve ties where needed) shown in the grey section of the table, to the left.

Unless you have a very narrow web-browser window, or a very old web browser, you should also see up- or down-arrows to indicate where teams are higher or lower in the alt-3 table than in the standard table. A solid arrow or indicates a difference of 3 or more league places.

The other numbers shown in the table are:

  • The usual league-table summaries:
    • Pld: matches played to date
    • GD: goal difference
    • Pts: league points accumulated to date
  • The alt-3 league table:
    • sched: the alt-3 measure of each team's schedule strength to date. Numbers greater than zero appear for teams that have played tougher opposition than average and/or have played fewer matches at home than away; and vice-versa for numbers less than zero.
    • Pts|17: the adjusted points total based on 17 matches played. This is normally — unless a team has one or more games in hand — the league points accumulated to date, adjusted for schedule strength:
      Pts|17 = Pts + sched
      [Where a team has one or more games in hand, i.e., has played fewer than 17 matches, the Pts|17 total accounts coherently for that by including additional points for each game in hand.]
