3rd Degree at related • 1 view

Just how important was Tatu to the original-era Sidekicks? Of the 3,642 goals the original team scored, Tatu's 736 goals represented 20.2% of the grand total. Add David Doyle to the mix and 31.4% of every goal ever scored in the original era came from 2 men.

Which means that it is not surprising that the PASL-era Sidekicks' best offensive weapons are moving quickly up the all-time goal scoring leader charts.

Premier League: Doing the double over other clubs

Mirko Bolesan at related • 2 views

If a club wins both the home fixture and the away fixture during a league season then they are said to have "done the double" over that side. In the Premier League during the 2012/2013 season 16 of the 20 sides did the double over a rival.

The following lists show the teams that each club in the Premier League managed to do the double against.

Mariano Andújar – Arsenal’s Next Goalkeeper Aquisition? [videos]

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views

There is a good chance that the goalkeeping situation at Arsenal will stay the same; and to be honest the topic is becoming more and more redundant as time goes on because Szczesny is a great keeper, and will be one of the best in the world (only an idiot would say otherwise).

Fabianski might be content with staying as Arsenals #2 keeper considering he is getting chances to start matches here and there, looking eager to overtake his young Polish compatriot, but who knows what decisions will be made by him or management during the summer.

Interestingly Everton picked up more points than both Chelsea and Arsenal during 2012 though this may have something to do with the fact that Everton played more games than both Chelsea and Arsenal during the year.

The vast majority of clubs in the Championship supplement their squads with players on loan from the Premier League or further afield. In fact, many clubs depend on taking a few players on loan at the start of every season and often pay substantial loan fees in order to do so. It's a fact of life in the Championship.

On message boards sometimes people have had a dig at me for using statistics. I do understand the limitations of statistics in football, honestly I do. But I also understand that sometimes they tell us things that we wouldn't otherwise know. They supplement what we see with our eyes. I understand that most people aren't after "the truth" and aren't that bothered that they need to see a statistical counterpoint to their dearly held belief, but while we have all these debates it always seems worth considering a variety of angles.

How do you scout a Striker?

A good Striker might be worth his weight in gold, but a recent study by 11tegen11 seems to indicate that judging forwards strictly by their goal tally might be more than a bit deluded.

Goals scored is an easy statistic to default to when considering the merits of any player, but it's also one that can be unreliable.
