  1. i would just say that his time at stuttgart should be taken with a fair pinch of salt, seeing as all his appearances came before the age of 20. apart from that, i think you're spot on.
  2. you say not quite prolific, but he has 50 goals in 92 league games for leipzig. they're not lewandowski or messi figures but still pretty damn impressive.
  3. is it a surprise he speaks french? he played for nice
  4. I think that's much fairer though than "oH my gOd, why diDn't He sCore!!!"
  5. It's also worth mentioning that the chance was 0.28 xG. People score from that position just over a quarter of the time. It's being made out as if he missed an open goal with no defenders in it from a yard out.
  6. Just looking at the numbers, it's interesting to see that Vardy takes a lot more high quality shots than most other players (the only person in the top 10 scorers who takes higher quality shots is Callum Wilson). So, while Vardy takes comparatively fewer shots (he takes the eighteenth most shots in the league), they are all very high value shots. It seems Kane, for instance, just takes loads of shots, as do Salah, Aguero and Sigurdsson. I'm less impressed by how many Vardy's scored, than by how good his chances are, which is a skill in itself. Name xG Shots xG/Shot Salah 21.07 128 0.165 Aguero 19.18 108 0.178 Mane 15.18 84 0.181 Aubameyang 19.82 76 0.261 Vardy 18.97 72 0.263 Sterling 15.28 69 0.221 Kane 16.12 102 0.158 Hazard 12.11 90 0.135 Wilson 15.49 58 0.267 Sigurdsson 11.90 81 0.147
  7. I think probs Perez's goal that got flagged for offside?
  8. Very nice highlight reel, but he does seem very one-footed.
  9. I guess one for pretty much every age group at least.
  10. Personally, I feel both six-fingered and five-fingered racists should get in the bin
  11. Please can someone PM me a stream?
