Liverpool | Maxi Scoring 7 in 3 Misleading

Liverpool | Maxi Scoring 7 in 3 Misleading

Maxi Rodriguez joined Liverpool on a free transfer from Atlético Madrid in January of 2010.  Since that time he has featured prominently in a Liverpool side that has failed to meet expectation and dropped out of the top 4 in England, missing the Champions League qualification spots and never threatening a title challenge. The personal highlight for Maxi in this time almost certainly has to be three match run that brought Liverpool's 2010/11 campaign to a close.  In three games …
From the SPL to the EPL

From the SPL to the EPL

With the new SPL season kicking off last weekend; it seemed like perfect timing to write an article on my first love. Scottish football isn’t very highly seen around Europe, because – well put it this way, since I’ve been born I’ve only seen two clubs win the title. But despite this dominance, Scottish players have always been relatively successful in the EPL. Most recently, it’s been Dundee born former Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam who has taken Blackpool and now …

EPL, No Experience Necessary?

EPL, No Experience Necessary?

With six new signings already in a very pro-active summer break, Canary fans are left wondering who if anyone will be added to make up the final places in Paul Lambert’s 25 man squad. With all the new signings being from the already well established ‘Lambert Mould’ of hungry young players, eager to test themselves, supporters may worry that Lambert will forgo the temptation to add the one thing to his squad that it seems would calm their worries, Premier …
Pardew v Hughton | A tale of two halves of a season

Pardew v Hughton | A tale of two halves of a season

It’s been literally a tale of two half seasons for Newcastle’s return to the Premier League, as the first half of the season was steered by Chris Hughton, helped along with the presence and goals of Andy Carroll and a very brief appearance from Hatem Ben Arfa. In December, Hughton was, judged by many, to be unfairly sacked and Alan Pardew was brought in three days after his departure.  He only had Andy Carroll’s services for three games before he …

Premier League Goal Scoring Patterns

Premier League Goal Scoring Patterns

Our statistical expert Ford Bohrmann analyses Premier League goal scoring patterns by looking at which areas of the goal teams score in. The article focuses on every Premier League side and then also covers their conversion percentages with the use of graphics. The original idea for this post came from a question from one of the readers of my blog. He was curious to know if there were any patterns to where clubs score in the plane of the goal. …
Everton | Who Replaces Arteta Best?

Everton | Who Replaces Arteta Best?

Since parting ways with Mikel Arteta, Goodison Park's chief creative threat for several years, Everton have struggled to find a player capable of replicating his high level of production. This season, the Spaniard's absence has clearly hampered elements of the Toffees' arsenal, with many attacking statistics on the decline. As is emphasised above, despite their recent upturn in form, the Toffees' creative nous has wavered. What has helped negate these attacking deficiencies and kept David Moyes' side competing  in games this season has …
