Big Bouncing Balls!

Arsenal FC has lost more games than Manchester City, Liverpool FC and Manchester United combined this season.

Willian, who arrived from Chelsea on a free transfer in Sept has played a total of 23 games and scored 0 goals with 3 assists so far. So much for a free agent on a £192k weekly salary.

Manchester City sits at the apex of the EPL today (before their match against Liverpool) with 39 goals scored from 21 games but none of its players are amongst the top 14 goal scorers in the EPL so far. İlkay Gündoğan, Manchester City’s EPL highest goal scorer this season is #15 on the goal scoring chart with 7 goals so far.

Harry Macguire was bought for £80m pounds in 2019 from Leicester City, thereby making him the most expensive defender ever. With his recent displays for Manchester United, is he worth half that value?

Jesse Lingard scored two goals in his first EPL game in over a year against a keeper who had and still has the 2nd best clean sheet in the EPL this season. Emiliano Marinez still has a record of 10 clean sheets from 21 games so far this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 100 games – W46/D26/29 = 46% win rate. So far this season his EPL stats are W13/D6/L4. Do the maths!

Bruno Fernandez has played 37 epl games, scored 21 goals and 16 assists. Means he has been involved in a goal in everymatch he has played so far. How many of those goals were penalties?

CR7 has scored 300 club goals since he clocked 30yrs old 6years ago (2015). Which teams benefitted from this goal machine’s bonanza?

Emiliano Martinez has played 2 games against his former club; Arsenal this season. He has kept 2 clean sheets against them and also won those matches against them. Did arsenal undervalue Martinez for £20m?

In the past few seasons, Borussia Dortmund has spent €30m less than Bayern Munchen on transfers but is nowhere close to Bavarian giants in terms of club success. Bayern’s transfer spend in recent times have been less than Everton, Atletico or Napoli and none of these teams can compete with Bayern on the European stage.

Kepa was bought for £72m as the most expensive goalkeeper ever in 2018 and conceded 92 goals in 72 EPL games during his term as Chelsea’s first team keeper. Means he conceded 1.2 goals in every match he played. Maybe that explains why he is currently second fiddle to Mendy today.

Dutch giants; Ajax FC recently confirmed that they forgot to include their record signing Sébastien Haller in their Europa League registration squad. Maybe they can do without the Ivorian’s goals in Europe this season?
