  1. thanks Edgar

    is it possible for you to update the AFC World/Cup and Asian Cup analysis you posted in October (http://www.football-rankings.info/2015/10/2018-fifa-world-cup-afc-second-round.html) either prior to or post Christmas??

    If so it would also be interesting to see how the sides are expected to rank for Pots 1-6 in AFC World Cup Stage 3 qualifying assuming it is drawn in mid April 2016

    1. Next Friday. About the pots - a lot depends on the release dates for 2016 - yet unknown.

  2. Provided that June 2016 ranking will be published in 9th June,
    4 years ranking will be :
    from
    09 / 06 / 2015 - 07 /06 / -2016 100 %

    09 / 06 / 2014 - 08 /06 / 2015 50%

    09 / 06 / 2013 - 08 /06 / 2014 %30

    09 / 06 / 2012 - 08 /06 / 2013 20%

    is it formula true or false?

    1. Hossam, this comment will help you identify the exact dates for the time frames.

    2. i have tried many times to know the exact dates,but failed. please give us the exact dates for 9 June 2016 ranking.

      Delete
    3. Hossam, if June 9th 2016 will be the ranking date of the June 2016 ranking then the 4 timeframes for that ranking consist of matches played on or between:
      1st timeframe 10/6/2015 - 5/6/2016
      2nd timeframe 10/6/2014 - 9/6/2015
      3rd timeframe 10/6/2013 - 9/6/2014
      4th timeframe 9/6/2012 - 9/6/2013

      Delete
    4. According the comment Edgar referenced, the first timeframe starts on 9/6/2015, and the second timeframe ends on 8/6/2015.

    5. Nogomet, not quite. 2016 is a leap year. 9/6/2016 - 365 days = 10/6/2015.

      Delete
    6. Very confusing. What is the number of days included in each of the timeframes?

      Delete
    7. First three timeframes each always consist of 365 days; fourth timeframe always consists of 366 days. The startdate of the first timeframe is calculated as: release date of the ranking minus 365 days. The enddate of the first timeframe is in general the Sunday before the release date on Thursday.
