(SELECT (AVG(FTHG)) from [2013-2014] WHERE div='E0' AND [date]<('2014-05-13') AND HomeTeam='Arsenal')
(select avg(FTHG) from [2013-2014] WHERE div='E0') to get first the average home goals for aresenal and deviding by the average home goals for the league. This works but is there a tidier way of doing this.
I think so, I think this will do it with only a single pass of the table:
select avg(FTHG) / AVG(case when [date]<('20140513') AND HomeTeam='Arsenal' Then FTHG End) AS final_result from [2013-2014] WHERE div='E0'
Thank you for your reply. Looks so much cleaner, I swapped the div around and it does exactly what i need. Than you
Great. It also does only one scan of the table instead of two :-).
