Vardy’s record under threat

Recommended Posts

Raised this question last season....Would Vardy’s record of scoring in 11 consecutive premier league matches be matched or bettered ?

Looks under threat this season already with Aguero scoring in first six this season, the first player to achieve this. Think he also scored in their last game last season so technically he has 7 goals in 7 consecutive games....Given the number of chances Man City create he could be the one to do it  sadly

I picked up on this from motd commentary, after checking man city's upcoming fixtures it does look a possibility, but as wigstonwanderer said theres a long way to go yet.

He'll be benched soon. Pep loves benching his best players

Still a long way to go. I remember when they were talking about Lukaku as he hit 7 or 8 in a row for Everton.

Also don’t forget Peps ability to rotate at will and suddenly drop players for no reason.

Isn't it consecutive games in which you play?

But the fact of the matter is Vardy did it first. And given the circumstances, history will never forget that 

He won't be the first to score in 12 consecutive games is the problem.

 

Obviously.

Not too bothered if someone else beats it soon or not.

 

Vardy's run was a great part of our story. After he scored against Man U I felt that it would be as good as it got for that season. 

 

Whatever happens nothing will take from the buzz of that season.

Obviously.

He'll probably get subbed on at some point. I'm not worried as of now to be honest.

I noticed them saying that on MOTD.

 

I reckon he'll do it to be honest.

 

But Vardy will still have the record of doing it in the same season.

Not if Aguerro scores 12 in a row this season.

 

 

 

Seriously, some of the reasoning in this thread is really shabby. People hungover this morning?

No - remember Vardy receiving injections to try and get him fit for a few games at the end of the run, Watford and Newcastle if I remember correctly rtly.

Well obviously, but he doesn't need to score 12 goals this season to break the actual record.

It’s still really unlikely at this point - assuming you give Aguero a 60% chance of scoring in any given game (which I’d have thought is about right), he’s still only got a 1 in 8 chance of matching it or a 1 in 13 chance of breaking it.

 

To put it another way, scoring in 7 straight matches is so impressive they mentioned it on MOTD. To break the record he’s got to do the best part of the same thing again, consecutively, with no room for error.

No, just the record for doing it in the same season.

Depends who many Aguerro scores. 
 

Next fixtures for Man City:

 

8. Everton - away

9. Wolves - home

10. Crystal Palace - away

11. Aston Villa - home

12. Southampton - home

13. Liverpool - away

The “record” Vardy broke belonged previously to van Nistelrooy who did it over 2 seasons. Last season’s goal by Aguero would count.

I assumed that went without saying tbh.

Looks achievable if Aguero is indeed selected for those games.
