Crazy Stat Time!

I was checking this out after Tielemans scored. Its not easy to find out, but I found a Welsh player called Ken Leek who played for Leicester between 1958 and 1961 and scored against England in 1960.

Strange stat, rather than crazy, but old timers will remember Ken Leek for one key reason. He scored in every round of the FA Cup in 1961, but was dropped by Matt Gillies, apparently because Leek liked a drink or two. If he had played and scored that would have been a brilliant crazy stat. Lost and didn’t score. Leek left soon after, went to Newcastle.

We've yet the draw in the league this season, only Villa can match this record 

By the way...the PL record is 30 games without a draw (Spurs). Record in any league is held by Villa (51)

In good company.

 

In fact, truly highlighting just how impressive Vardy's potency is when bearing in mind his age, he's one of just four players aged 30 or over to have scored over six goals in any of Europe's top five leagues this season. 

And the other names within that elite club show how difficult a challenge that is. Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski and Zlatan Ibrahmovic are genuine world-class entities and among the greatest goalscorers of this millennium, yet Vardy is holding his own against them.

14th is definitely achievable, getting up to 10th will depends on if he can keep this standard going and defy father time.

Just read this and got no way of verifying it so apologies if not true.

Since the start of the 15/16 Jamie Vardy’s xG (expected goals) is 94 in that time he has actually scored 107.

That is phenomenal, would be amazing if anyone could confirm.

He’s got to be eying up the top 10. 38 goals in the next 2 or 3 seasons would be a fantastic return but not unrealistic..

I doubt he is eyeing up any targets, just trying to score as many as possible. We all know at his age he is one bad injury away from retirement. Let's just enjoy the phenomenon while he's here. He's already a legend even if he never scored again.

Vardy's goals in total number of games played is very good. Slightly worse than Ian Wright. But if you consider the amount of games he has scored his last 111 league goals in, his goals per game ratio is nearly adds good as van nistlerooy!

There is no need to massage his figures, they are phenomenal. Only 6 players have scored 100+ PL goals at a better rate than Vardy. Wright, Kane, Aguero, Henry, Shearer, Van Persie. You don't need to caveat his first season even with that poor start to life in the PL he is statistically the seventh best striker in PL history. He could very well finish his career top 5 but even top 10 of all time (PL) is pretty fvcking special.
