Joe Allen vs Leon Britton - Did LFC get the right man? | Stats Comparison

Joe Allen vs Leon Britton - Did LFC get the right man? | Stats Comparison

Joe Allen and Leon Britton were the key men for Brendan Rogers ‘Tiki Taka’ football at Swansea and it was no surprise that Joe Allen joined the former Swansea manager when Rogers took over at Anfield.

And did Liverpool make the right decision to sign Allen over Britton? These are the two questions that we look at …

Wide Forwards: In Fashion? Comparison: Moses, Walcott, Nani & Sinclair

Recently, more and more teams in the Premier League are choosing to play a 4-3-3 formation instead of the traditional 4-4-2 and this change in formation has helped to create a new position on the pitch – the wide forward. Wide forwards are players who are looking to penetrate the oppositions defence and score rather than the traditional winger who is looking to cross the ball or create a chance for their team.  These sorts of players have become vital …

Ledley King Tottenham's Rock At The Back | Opta Stats Comparison

Many Spurs fans believe that Ledley King would have gone on to be one of England’s finest centre halves if it wasn’t for his long-term knee problems that recently forced him to retire from the beautiful game. Even with his knee problems King has managed to make 71 Premier League appearances in the last four seasons, helping Spurs to keep 24 clean sheets in the process. The Spurs skipper also has the impressive statistic of only receiving 8 yellow cards in …

The Ups and Downs of Newcastle United

The Ups and Downs of Newcastle United

It is fair to say that Newcastle United have had their fair share of ups and downs over the years, from winning promotion to the Premier League in the 1992/1993 season to losing 2-1 to Scunthorpe in the Championship and everything in-between. Kevin Keegan got Newcastle promoted to the Premier League in 1993, one season after saving them from relegation from Division 2 on the final day of the 1991/1992 season and this where we begin. In Newcastle’s first season …

Did A Lack Of Rotation Cost Redknapp His Job? | Opta Stats Analysis

When Vedran Corluka claimed that Spurs poor end of season form was down to Harry Redknapp’s reluctance to rotate his team he was quickly shot down by the Spurs manager, but did the Croatian have a point? Tottenham had six outfield players that played at least 75% of their 3420 Premier League minutes last season (Assou-Ekotto, Walker, Kaboul, Modric, Bale, Adebayor) and three players (Walker, Modric and Bale) that played in 90% of their 3420 minutes last season. Spurs had …

One Dimensional Netherlands Lose Again | Euro 2012 stats

The Netherlands now need a miracle to qualify from Group B after losing 2-1 to fierce rivals Germany. Bert van Marwijk made one change from the 1-0 defeat to Denmark, with Joris Mathijsen coming in to replace Ron Vlaar in central defence. Bert van Marwijk also kept faith with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation, which meant Klass-Jan Huntelaar had to again settle for a place on the bench. The Dutch team started well and had their first real chance on 6 …
