Karius Vs. Mignolet - What do the Numbers Say?

In my Football Manager avatar (currently managing Newcastle), whenever one of my players or my team is criticised, I jump to their defence. Press conference after press conference, I keep clicking on the option that I think will be the best defence of my team or player(s).

5 signings the Premier League may have missed out on this season

The transfer window is one of the most active and exciting periods of the Premier League season and a whole host of clubs are put under pressure to bring in the world’s top stars. Arsenal fans are notoriously ruthless on their manager and Arsene Wenger is often criticised for his lack of big-money signings.
