Thanks for these Paul.  It's interesting that the correlation is even
stronger the year before.

When you combine both seasons, the chance of data falling into line like
that by chance is about one in 59,000,000,000 (59 billion).

Dear Steve,
 
I found these figures on the web from Deloitte's annual football report for
season 2009 to 2010, the season before your figures. Results as follows:
 
Team..........League Rank...Wage Rank...Difference 
Burnley.........     .18..............19................1 
Fulham................12...............11.......... ......-1 
Stoke................11...............14.......... ......3 
Spurs..................5................7......... .......2 
Man Utd..............2................3............... ..1 
Wolves..............18...............15........... .....3 
Blackpool...........19...............20........... .....1 
Arsenal...............3.................5......... .......2 
Everton..............8.................8.......... ......0 
Wigan...............16...............15........... .....-1 
Hull City..........19...............16............ ....-3 
Bolton...............13...............14.......... ......1 
Chelsea..............1.................1.......... .....0 
Birmingham.........17...............9............ ..8 
Man City.............5.................2.............. .-3 
Liverpool.............6.................4......... ......-2 
Sunderland.........10................8............ ....-2 
Aston villa...........9.................6...............-3 
Blackburn...........15...............12........... ....-3 
West Ham..........17................10...............-7
Compared to your results for last season 2010 to 2011:
 
Team..........League Rank...Wage Rank...Difference 
West Brom..........11..............19................8 
Fulham................8...............11.......... ......3 
Stoke................13...............15.......... ......2

Ok, pretty similar results. The 2 x anomaly's for 2009 to 2010 being
Birmingham and West Ham. Interesting that West Ham went up 2 x places in
terms of the wage table for last season compared to the previous year but
ended up finishing bottom and were relegated.
Pity Deloitte do not publish their reports. Anybody have the figures for the
season 2008 to 2009? 
Still not convinced Manager's have no effect whatsoever and that 90% of team
performance is directly attributed to wage bill spend. 
Regards
Paul.

Here's the wages data that Paul Crowe asked for,  It's more or less the same
as the data I have already shared.
 
West Ham is an outlier and linear regression is not robust so you get a
stronger r-squared when you take it out.  God knows what happened to them
last season
