    John Carew has never won the Champions League, the FA Cup or the League Cup, but has lost in the final of all three.

    Shit enough to play in three major finals.

    It's not actually that unbelievable a stat, but I thought it was interesting and didn't think anyone would get it if I put it in the quiz thread.

    Guess so.

    Another interesting one, if a little contrived...if George Best had played for as long as Giggs, he'd have still been there when Ferguson took over at United

    I know it's not so unbelievable anymore because it's Messi but...he's just scored in a 19th consecutive game in La Liga, meaning he's scored against every single team in the division in consecutive games.

    The search to find ever more obscure Messi records continues.

    It's not particularly contrived like some of the ones you hear. Ooh Messi is the first player ever to score 20 goals in the period between Valentines Day and Good Friday.

    Yeah but he's continuously just beating his own record now. The previous record was 11 games or something.

    I agree. It's not contrived. It's just unfathomable for anyone else.

    This isn't unbelievable, just quite nice.

    Xavi completed the game against PSG with a 100% pass success rate, which has lead to PG's favourite website creating a graphic of all players who have done it previously and how many passes they achieved.

    This is straight from the bbc live text who are probably quoting opta but

    "Gabriel Agbonlahor's goal means he is now Aston Villa's leading scorer in the Premier League with 61 - ahead of Dwight Yorke (60), Dion Dublin (48), Juan Pablo Angel (44) and Gareth Barry (41)."

    Am I way off or does it sound mental that a side who have been premier league ever presents have basically never had a properly prolific striker?

    Everton's is also 60 in Duncan Ferguson

    http://www.talksport.co.uk/magazine/...-scorer-195235

    There's probably a better, less overly "clicky" list than that somewhere.

    Not a stat, and not exactly 'unbelievable' (and half of you have probably already heard this on The Football Ramble, but fuck you) but a lovely little coincidence.

    Apparently all 91 clubs, aside from Arsenal, have changed managers since Arsene Wenger last won a trophy.

    There may be something to that, Cloughie is the championships longest serving manager at four and a half years so going by that, the rest of the football league isn't that much of a stretch.

    If you take Blackburn Rovers 1994/95 vs Arsenal FC 2005/06 to present day. Blackburn have won more trophies.

    Courtesy of Sid Lowe's La Liga round-up today...

    Less money was spent by Spanish clubs in the January transfer window than QPR spent on Chris Samba.

    Since Arsenal last won a trophy, Leo Messi has turned professional & won 78 individual trophies/awards, including 4 consecutive Ballon d'Ors.

    ...Less than a year after his start, Frank Rijkaard gave him his league debut against RCD Espanyol on 16 October 2004 (at 17 years and 114 days)

    Messi and Ronaldo have scored over 85% of the total goals in La Liga over the past three seasons.

    Unbelievable because it's false...

    Total goals in La Liga over the last three seasons (2013-14, 2012-13 and 2011-12): 2441
    Goals scored by Messi and Ronaldo in that time: 195
    Percentage scored by Messi and Ronaldo: 8.0%

    Looking at the last three full seasons it's 7.8%.

    And in those last three full seasons they've only scored 38% of Barcelona and Real's La Liga goals. Well, that's obviously "only" compared to 85%, otherwise it's pretty damn impressive.

    Think they scored 35 in the league so unless there's only been 6 other hattricks that's maybe not right

    Yep, don't want our Canadian friend to get the wrong idea.

    EDIT: And yeah, completely fell for Simon's post - though he's done such a great job at appearing to be a fool before that thinking he believed it was an easy error.

    You went to the bother of checking that Messi and Ronaldo weren't scoring about 900 goals between them each season for three years...and I'm the fool

    Also because of Dave's stat shenanigans Hurley has got away Scot-free with seemingly actually believing it. Lucky boy.

    Still, Ronaldo and Messi scoring 8% of all La Liga goals is quite a good stat, I reckon.

    From BBC:

    Did you know?
    Joel Campbell bought 100 packets of World Cup stickers trying to find one of himself. None of the 500 was of him.

    I like this one:

    Cristiano, Bale and Rodríguez cost Real Madrid around €265M: more than Ajax have spent on transfers since their founding in 1900 (€232M).

    Nice stat from Barney Ronay in the Guardian today from his review of the Liverpool vs Real Madrid match.

    Ronaldo has taken more shots at goal this season than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues. Second on the list is Balotelli. Ronaldo has 15 league goals. Balotelli has none.

    Stolen from Sunday Supplement. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 20 times since Aston Villa last scored.

    Not sure where he got it from but Alan Pardew cited some stat report saying Jagielka is the quickest player in the league.

    There is statistically no chance of Villa winning this game, despite being one up and Spurs looking like clowns.

    There must be many ways, lots of them not involving movement by the looks of it as Jagielka is one of the slowest players I have ever seen for us!

    Sergio Ramos scored his 50th goal for Real Madrid tonight, that's the same amount of goals as Iniesta has for Barcelona, but he did it in 100 fewer games.

    Sorry I meant never been United's top scorer. I think that's pretty surprising for the (theoretical) star striker not to have been top scorer at the title winners in any of their victories.

    I thought it was pretty interesting, in that it shows that Rooney has been a consistently good goalscorer without having any real spikes of relentless scoring. Considering he's on course to become at least second top Premier League scorer of all time (displacing Andy Cole, who actually holds the same record as Rooney of never being top scorer at a club in a title-winning season), I would have expected him to be manage it at some point.

    So he's not even the only one? Even less unbelievable than before.

    Pepe is the only first choice centre back in La Liga yet to pick up a booking this season and he's only committed 5 five fouls total.

    Yes Real Madrid have been pissing all over everyone, but it's Pepe!
