    The fact that Ronaldo scored more league goals than games he played last year was FM cheat player levels of ridiculousness.

    United's home game against Sunderland tomorrow is their first 3pm Saturday kick-off since January 1994.

    Jesus christ dude, please don't tell me you said that. Batistuta is one of the most beautiful men alive. Henry looks like he was lucky to escape the famine in Ethiopia.

    Bennedy's fatal error reminds me of me offhand saying "Ronaldo must do about 10 stepovers a second" during a game once, and one of my mates mockingly going " no he can't" like I was being literal.

    Maybe not unbelievable, but a genuinely interesting stat - 25 years ago when Alex Ferguson took over United, the bottom four were United, Chelsea, Newcastle and City - the current top four

    I remember being in High School (93-98-) and United buying Andy Cole from Newcastle fpr 7m. It was an outrageous amount of money.

    I remember Cole taking a while to adjust........ but that = my teacher (United fan) saying "Andy Cole is black pudding".

    Shocking.

    The Bernabeu is currently hosting it's first ever midday kick off.

    Watching them in daylight seems wrong.

    Messi's 14th hat-trick for Barcelona today:
    1 in 2006-07
    1 in 2008-09
    3 in 2009-10
    4 in 2010-11
    5 in 2011-12

    He has now scored 110 goals in 118 Liga games under Guardiola and needs only 20 more goals to become Barcelona's all time top goal scorer.

    He's only 24.

    Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 matches for Manchester United.
    He is now on 119 in 122 matches for Madrid.
    Wallop.

    7 games without a win, just 3 goals scored.

    1 win in last 15 games, just 6 goals scored.

    8 home games without a win, just 1 goal scored.

    Last 13 league games. Won 1, drawn 2, lost 10. Only 6 goals scored.
    (5pts from a possible 39)

    The unbelievable stat is that Cotternill still has a job.

    Another unbelievable stat is that you actually paid us compensation for his services. When we were about to sack him anyway.

    If we sack Cotternill we will stay up because the squad is good and law of averages say whoever replaces him will be better.

    If we keep him I'd slap the bet on myself.

    Since becoming a manager in 1985/6 Kenny Dalglish has only signed 2 black players.

    Got him. Found a thread on this on another forum, and found the following squad pics.





    Love the comment below the last one:

    "Noticeable here as well with Glen Johnson seeming lonely. They’ve grabbed one of their boot polishers to come in the photo - trying to make up numbers…"

    I thought that this was pretty unbelievable. According to the paper this morning, Stephen Fletcher has scored eight goals from nine chances all season.

    Frank Lampard has eight goals from ten chances.

    It's impressive finishing. But I don't get how Stephen Fletcher can play upfront all season and only get nine chances.

    Was it qualified as 'clearcut chances'? There was an article that I read about the most clinical strikers in the Premier League up to January:

    Clearcut chances scored/Clearcut chances

    1. Dimitar Berbatov (Manchester United)
    Clear Cut Chances 13/25
    Clinicality 52%

    2. Steven Fletcher (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
    Clear Cut Chances 8/11
    Clinicality 73%

    3. Peter Odemwingie (West Bromwich Albion)
    Clear Cut Chances 12/21
    Clinicality 57%


    4. Frank Lampard (Chelsea)
    Clear Cut Chances 8/16
    Clinicality 50%


    5. Dirk Kuyt (Liverpool)
    Clear Cut Chances 11/17
    Clinicality 65%

    Again though, I question their accuracy because Berbatov didn't play much.

    Good stat from Football Weekly yesterday - in the 1989/90 season, Hugo Sanchez scored 38 league goals for Real Madrid in 35 games. To score these 38 goals, he took just 38 touches. Every single goal was taken first time, with no controlling touch.

    Shamelessly stolen from twitter, but:
    Fernando Torres, Andy Carroll & Luis Suarez have scored as many goals in their last 103 matches as Leo Messi has scored in his last seven.

    To continue with the Messi theme, he has now scored as many club goals this season as Emile Heskey has managed in the past 10 years.

    The record points totals in Portugal, England and Spain were all achieved under the same manager - Jose Mourinho.

    Alex McLeish got fewer points at Villa this season than he did at Birmingham the previous season - when Blues were relegated.

    He also amassed the least total points for a season Villa have had since 1895 - when there were only 12 teams in the division.

    His style of play led to Villa scoring less than a goal per game on average - 37 in 38.

    Villa did not score from a corner all season but conceded from 16.

    Villa had 64 shots in the entire season - just 20 more than Man City did vs QPR alone.

    Average attendance dropped by 4k too, previous years they had been dropping by 1k a year. So at an estimated average of 25 a ticket that's a drop in just ticket sales alone of about 4mil over the season.

    In the first two rounds of fixtures at Euro 2012, only Germany played fewer long balls (35 yards+) than England did.

    Mario Gomez was in possession of the ball for 21 seconds in the opening two Germany games and scored 3 goals.

    Another good stat but would have been better for shitting ourselves up before the tournament started - the omens did not look good.

    We had never won our opening game, never won against Sweden at a competitive tournament, and never beaten a host nation.

    Not sure about this being 'genuinely unbelievable' but in the absense of a 'rather nice stats' thread, the 90,000 sell-out crowd at Wembley this Saturday to see England play will be the highest crowd that San Marino have ever played in front of and is close to three times the size of the population of entire Republic.

    Poor old Kieron Dyer. He was so good before his injuries.

    Edin Dzeko has 7 away goals as a substitute in the Premier League - only Jermain Defoe (9) has more. Mad to think he's done that in two years.

    Saw this on Football 365:

    On the face of it, and for all the mocking, Fernando Torres's strike-rate of four goals in ten Premier League games this season is actually perfectly respectable. However, the importance of his goals is questionable at best. Indeed, only one of Torres's goals this season - his opener against Arsenal - has actually made any difference to the result. Acutally, scratch that - that's the only goal in his entire time at Chelsea that has made a difference to the result. The strike in the Nou Camp last season changed the score on the night, but Chelsea still would've gone through on away goals, even if he hadn't caused Gary Neville's 'gentleman's moment'. If you'd removed his entire goal-scoring contribution to Chelsea in nearly two years there, they would be precisely two points better off - 50million that might have been better used making hats to keep the rain off.

    I think that is worthy of this thread.

    4.75 ACTUALLY. Jeesh.

    And that Barca stat is pretty amazing. 3 have been sold and brought back of course, but still.

    Since 1993 all but five of Manchester United's FA cup ties have been picked to be shown live on TV.

    I genuinely had a go at trying to think of them.

    I have one so far! Man United/Sunderland 3rd round 1996.

    I suppose it's not bad as you initially think, seeing as from the quarters every game is shown live, but it's still mad to think that there must have been 60-odd ties from the 3rd/4th/5th rounds since 1993 and they've almost all been shown live.

    Reading/Man United 1995/96. Bruce misses an open goal and Cantona puts his fingers in his ears.

    I will get all 5.

    If games finished after 45 minutes in the Premier League this season, Aston Villa would be sitting in sixth place.

    And if only second halfs counted, Arsenal would be second. That was in the program last week, they're pretty good at clutching at straws as well.

    Not an unbelievable stat but one I found interesting at least - all of Ashley Cole's 99 caps have been starts.

    Despite having a fairly decent season, Southend haven't scored in the first half of a home league game for almost six months - since September 8th 2012.

    We've also not scored in the first half of any of our last ten matches.
