is a rankings system based only on statistics.
Just like the the systems ranking tennis players
and pro cyclists (UCI).
The first TFR rankings were based on the results
of the 2007-08 season.
The clubs, coaches and players are rewarded
for winning games. Draws are also rewarded but
only with one third of a victory. Results in
high competitive tournaments such as the UEFA
Champions League or the FIFA World Cup are heavier
weighted than results from less competitive
tournaments such as the smaller domestic leagues.
The system also rewards players of the best
defensive and attacking teams. Many goals scored
will reward attacking players of a team and
few goals conceded will reward the defensive
forces - including the goalkeeper.
Finally the system rewards players for scoring
goals and providing assists.
In August we release the annual rankings of
the best players (Top 300), teams (Top 50),
the best coaches, top scorers, top assists and
young guns (all Top 30).
