RFPL Round 10: Weighted Age Analytics

Ten rounds have passed in the Russian Football Premier League, and thus it’s time to look at weighted ages again.

Just a reminder of what’s the difference between squad weighted age and squad average age. Weighted age is a dynamic parameter that takes into account the actual usage of a player during the season: total minutes he played and the average age in the matches he played; this parameter changes with every match depending on the squad selection. The precise algorithm for calculation can be found in the previous feature.

Before we get to the actual profiles, let’s examine how weighted ages shifted in the last five rounds. Don’t forget that weighted age naturally increases during the season as the players get older; the only way to decrease weighted age is fielding younger players.

  • Ural Ekaterinburg: -0.37 (28.23 -> 27.86)
  • Akhmat Grozny: -0.29 (26.55 -> 26.26)
  • Spartak Moscow: -0.28 (28.23 -> 27.95)
  • FC Rostov: -0.25 (28.42 -> 28.17)
  • SKA Khabarovsk: -0.20 (29.20 -> 29.00)
  • Arsenal Tula: -0.15 (28.77 -> 28.62)
  • FC Tosno: -0.07 (26.63 -> 26.56)
  • Rubin Kazan: -0.05 (28.45 -> 28.40)
  • Zenit St. Petersburg: -0.04 (26.87 -> 26.83)
  • FC Ufa: 0.00 (27.45 -> 27.45)
  • FC Krasnodar: +0.11 (27.33 -> 27.44)
  • Anzhi Makhachkala: +0.11 (27.47 -> 27.58)
  • Amkar Perm: +0.13 (28.06 -> 28.19)
  • Dinamo Moscow: +0.21 (27.68 -> 27.87)
  • Lokomotiv Moscow: +0.25 (28.14 -> 28.39)
  • CSKA Moscow: +0.33 (28.10 -> 28.43)

As we see, ten clubs have been fielding younger on average squads in rounds 6-10 than in rounds 1-5. Ural sold Chisamba Lungu and started using Alexey Evseev, who’s three years younger. Akhmat give even more playing time to their young Brazilians. Spartak replaced Rebrov with Selikhov for several games and returned Kutepov into the first team. Even the oldest teams in the league, Arsenal and SKA, seem to understand that their players don’t get any younger, and something had to change.

At the opposite end, we see CSKA and Lokomotiv, whose weighted age markedly increased. CSKA have again started fielding Ignashevich regularly and returned Akinfeev into the goal after a small injury, so this shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Lokomotiv’s influx of talented youngsters such as Miranchuk brothers and Barinov is offset by Fernandes, Igor Denisov and Farfan.

Finally, Krasnodar, Anzhi and Amkar are ageing more or less “naturally”, which suggests they use more or less the same squads throughout.
