Concacaf Rankings: February

Introducing a new feature, to appear on the second Monday of every month.

You'll notice at the top of the screen that we claim to be "A football (that is, soccer) blog, with an emphasis on statistics, rankings, Canada's national teams and goings-on in CONCACAF". Lately, there's been plenty about the Canadian national team, or those who have chosen to absent themselves from it, but little about rankings or CONCACAF business.

That all changes now.

Any idiot can take a look at a few different set of rankings, throw together a spreadsheet, and average them out. Since we don't like to take the FIFA edition as authoritative, that's just what we've done.

The rankings, besides fifa, that we feel alright about recommending to you include the elo, ziaian and roon ba (this one has rather cool looking stylized flag logos).
