Hi Paul. Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately statistics aren't a load of nonsense. They are just facts. How you (or I) interpret them can be a load of nonsense. If you read my report on the Bayer Leverkusen game I highlight the amount of backwards passes Starfelt did. Regards Tony

Statistics,statistics all a load of nonsense,starfelt top pass is obvious when all he does is pass 5 to 10yards sideways to carter-bickers or back to hart.Possession don’t win games it’s goals that win games,our creation of goal scoring chances/shots on target is abysmal with the possession.
