Least squares is used to fit a model to the individual match results in English football and produce a Home Ground Advantage (HA) effect for each team in addition to a team rating. We show for a balanced competition this is equivalent to a simple calculator method using only data from the final ladder. The existence of a spurious HA is discussed. HA's for all teams in the English Football league from 1981-82 to 1990-91 are calculated, and some reasons for their differences investigated. A paired HA is defined and shown to be linearly related to the distance between club grounds.
