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

i don’t think it’s unfair to say Man City have a better over all team than us :)

 

 

However it does make you wonder how many more goals Vardy could have in a team that gives the same consistent and quality supply Aguero gets...

They were getting much bigger crowds than us when they were in the 3rd. 28k to 20k.

That's quite true, But from a population of 2.5 Million as against 650k. Leicester. Which suggests we probably have a bigger real fanbase based on local population. Though they have to share population with Utd.

They're also one of the few top 10 Clubs were you can still get tickets on a Saturday.

 

It's all off and buts at the end of the day, but I don't like there approach to football.

Greater Manchester has a big population but there's so many clubs there it shows they've always had pretty good numbers, especially when they share a city with one of the biggest clubs in the world.
