Hello,

I am looking to compare the means for two groups (midfield - forward; top - bottom) against each other.

Could someone please assist me in choosing what t test to use, or whether it is even a t test.

an example of the data I am comparing is:

Goals Top 5 Goals Bottom 5

Midfield___Forward___Midfield___Forward

4.2_______18.5______3.3______9.5

5.5_______18_______2.3_______7.5

3.5_______17_______4.8_______4.5

4.5_______13_______3_________9.5

2.4_______10_______3.8_______8.5

As you can see I need to carry out at least 3 different t tests on the data.

First off I would like to compare the means for the midfield only from the top 5 to the midfield of the bottom 5.

Another test to compare the midfield to the forwards in only the top 5.

And finally another test to compare the means for the midfield and forwards of the top 5 to the midfield and forwards of the bottom 5.

Please any assistance would be greatly appreciated as this is part of my dissertation, and I need to get my statistical analysis done so I can crack on with the results section.

Thanks
