Is there a stat for what Duffy’s performance is compared to Aitken for this season?

I'll do it in a lot more detail, but on a basic level:

Aitken: P15 W4 D3 L8 (26% win ratio)

Duffy: P25 W9 D7 L9 (36% win ratio)

The difference in goals scored will be massive though I'd imagine. What a difference it makes having a manager who attacks game. 

We've also only lost twice since Duffy brought in his own players at the end of January.

And so it turned out less frantic than we had long feared, so well done to everyone concerned at DFC.
To be honest though, huge individual plaudits must go to Craig Barr and Dom Thomas for their contributions in helping us retain our Division One status.
Time soon to pause and draw breath before considering the challenges that lie ahead, but meantime we raise a glass to our club.

Righty-ho. Decided to start my Sunday morning right by looking into it in detail, so here we are.

Posted yesterday, but the overall record looks like this:

Stevie Aitken: Played: 15. Won: 4. Drawn: 3. Lost: 8. 26.66% Win Ratio. 53.33% Loss Ratio

Jim Duffy: Played: 25. Won: 9. Drawn: 7. Lost: 9. 36% Win Ratio. 36% Loss Ratio

In League Games only:

Aitken: P9 W2 D2 L5. 22% Win Ratio

Duffy: P24 W9 D7 L8. 37.5% Win Ratio

Consistency.

Aitken's longest unbeaten run of league games as DFC manager: 4 (W1 D3 Jan - Feb 2017)/(W2 D2 - Nov - Dec 2017).

Duffy's longest unbeaten run of league games: 7 (January - March 2019 - W4, D3)

Attacking Games.

Stevie Aitken this season: Played 15. Goals For: 17. Avg = 1.13 per game in all comps. This rises to 1.33 only including league games (12/9).

Jim Duffy. Played 25. Goals For: 45. Avg = 1.8 per games in all comps. This rises to 1.88 only including league games (45/24).

Firing Blanks.

Dumbarton failed to score in 4 of Stevie Aitken's 15 games. 26.66%

Dumbarton failed to score in 6 of Jim Duffy's 25 games. 24%

Margin of victory.

Stevie Aitken - Win by one clear goal: 3 (75% of victories). Win by two clear goals: 1 (25% of victories). Win by >2 clear goals: 0. (0% of victories).

Jim Duffy -Win by one clear goal: 3 (33% of victories). Win by two clear goals: 2 (22% of victories). Win by >2 clear goals: 4 (44% of victories).

And here's a bit of a belter of a stat to finish things off. It's slightly unfair given how many of Aitken's games were in a higher league, but we'll go for it anyway.

Number of wins by more than one goal across his tenure (league games only).

Stevie Aitken 117 League Games in charge: 7 (5.98%). Alloa Athletic (0-2/3-1), Queen of the South (4-2), Raith Rovers (1-3/4-0), Brechin City (1-3), East Fife (0-2). Of those teams only Queen of the South and East Fife wouldn't end the season in the bottom two of the division. 

Jim Duffy 24 League Games in charge: 6 (25%). East Fife (4-0), Brechin City (4-1), Stranraer (0-3), Arbroath (2-0), Montrose (1-3), East Fife (3-0). None of those teams have been relegated, and only Brechin are in danger. Arbroath are Champions, Montrose are in the playoffs and East Fife have spent near enough the whole season in the top half.

The aim now has to be to get 5th. There’s a £7k prize money difference between finishing 8th and finishing 5th. I wouldn’t turn my nose up at that extra £7k.

Does this graphic show the % as it's part of the total league payout? ie, League 1 gets 3.12% of the full budget? Shocking statistic really

£716, 000 total for a league of 10 teams for a whole year! There are overpaid Prima Donas in the EPL getting that for a week.

Folk wonder why our game is deteriorating!

Relegation from the Championship has cost us over £100k in 'prize money' alone, and that's not even including the factor of smaller crowds in League 1, drop in season tickets, hospitality etc.

Could even be double that figure

Anyway, now that the threat of relegation has wafted into the distance, just what is the scoop on Ross Perry - is he really Nicky Phinn's stepbrother ?
Not only that, but Michael Paton seems to have provided concrete evidence that the Bermuda Triangle extends to G82.
Willie Dyer has been suffering from a 6 month cold.
