Coaches, players, and certainly bookies are well aware of the fact that football teams typically perform better at home than away. The end of year statistics for various leagues during the 2002-2003 football season in the UK (see Table 1) show a remarkably consistent tendency for teams to win more games and score more goals when playing on their own pitch.
