Since we beat Villa 1.4 on on December 8th, Vardy has started 14 games, 7 draws, 6 defeats and the 1 win against west Ham in which he was substituted before half time.

Oh. My. God.

Loosely related because of Shilton but found this stat pretty amazing.

I wonder which of the top keepers at the moment will stay world class until there in the mid/late 30s

 

Havent seen as many stay at the top of their game in recent years like they used to. What Buffon has done in prolonging his career is incredible

That is crazy, if Buffon plays for another season it will be 90 straight seasons for the combination of the three.

I hope Juve's keeper gets sent off in the last minute of extra time in next seasons Champions League final, then Gigi comes on, scores Juve's 10th pen, then saves the oppositions 10th lol

 

What a guy.

Pretty sure I saw today that he and Chiellini have signed 1 year extensions at Juve.

They're also renaming themselves Juventus Masters and bringing Del Piero back. They'll probably still win the title...

Am I the only one who doesn't find this amazing? 3 players from 3 different eras, who played one after another, who all had/have long playing careers. It's neither amazing or surprising is it? 

Couldn't you do something similar for virtually any 3 players that had sequential careers?

You might not get the exact same longevity, but it's not really 'a stat' is what I'm saying. 

 

It's literally just a truism about when 3 different players played. 

 

Player A played in the 1960s and 70s, Player B played in the 1970s and 80s, Player C played in the 1980s and 90s. 

 

"Did you know that between them Players A, B and C have played in every season from 1960 to 2000"

Jesus 😂.

 

Next time I find an interesting stat I'll run it past you to check it's validity.

Haha - I'm not having a go or anything - was just a little puzzled is all. It's just simply 3 players who all played one after another.

The example you've just pointed out will still be a stat but be relatively easy to achieve - not a Crazy stat. The stat pointed out goes 30 years before and 30 years after your example. Crazy!! 

 

Break it down the average player plays from 18 to 36 (if all goes well) that's 18 years of playing first team football. Allowing for cross overs that would take you to 52 years of concurrent first team football for three 'average' players.

 

The example of Matthews, Shilton and Buffon covered 88 years!! Which is incredible from three players. Try and get anywhere near that with any three players (playing in Europe at the top level - King Kazu (look him up!) is not allowed).

 

As the OP I approve and allow the Stat!! :thumbup:

I remember hearing a stat about Vardy's shot/goal conversion rate when he was on a goalscoring tear prior to Christmas. Apparently it was incredibly high even when compared to other prolific Premier League strikers. The article pointed out that this was clearly unsustainable. Although it would have been hard to predict that Vardy's effectiveness would be completely nullified since, it should have been patently obvious that, since we weren't getting regular goals from anyone else, the club should have moved to address this in the January window by providing additional scoring cover. Not doing so seems like it's going to cost the club dear as we free fall out of a CL spot.

I think Perez's work rate is undervalued (especially where Ricardo is concerned).

He wins the ball back quite a lot in attacking positions... it is why we miss him when not played. Add ndidi and Ricardo and we are almost unbeatable

He's also probably the most creative of the wingers or at least has a better eye for goal and the positions to be in.

A big problem is that his goals have came in games where we’d basically already won. His creative numbers aren’t great and 93% of attacking midfielders/wingers in the top 5 leagues lose the ball less than him. He’s great at winning the ball back tbf but I’ve been disappointed in him. I’ve got a feeling he’ll have a better season next year but I can’t help but feel we could have utilised that money more effectively

We lost 3 games in 2015/16 - 2-5, 0-1 and 1-2 - 3-8 on aggregate or a margin of 5.

 

Liverpool have so far just lost twice but by a margin of 7.

 

Point is I hate Liverpool and will use any old useless trivial to fuel it.
