News Update :

Super Strikers; Strikers of Top 7 clubs compared.

Robin Van Persie has been sensational this season as his goals tally suggest. Along with him Demba Ba has surprised everybody with his superb vision for goals. Rooney and Aguero have also scored fluently this season having already bagged 13 goals each.Newcastle are 7th in the league and seem to depend too much on Demba Ba. 56% of their goals have come from Ba. That's a big number. Arsenal's dependency on Van Persie is also clearly visible. Taking this into account United and City do have an edge over their rivals in terms of Attacking options. Dimitar Berbatov has the better mins per goal statistic despite not played too often so far this season. Last season’s top goalscorer has scored 1 goal every 62 minutes in the league, helped by his hatrick in the last game. Edin Dzeko does not find himself too far behind in this regard scoring 1 goal every 69 ninutes having played a lot more and scoring more than double what Dimitar Berbatov has.
Giving Edin Dzeko more game time would be wise of Roberto Mancini. Other notable leaders in this statistic include Robin Van Persie, Demba Ba and Sergio Aguero who have been scoring at more or less a rate of a goal per game.Saloman Kalou leads the shooting accuracy with 80% however this statistic is an anomalous result when you consider how little he has played so far this season. Surprisingly Gervinho and unsurprisingly Javier Hernandez find themselves to be the major leaders of the shooting accuracy statistic. This statistic does not mean much if the players can’t convert their chances but Javier Hernandez does find himself to be one of the leaders of this statistic too. Demba Ba’s chance conversion rate is also very impressive.The players with the worst chance conversion rates, unsurprisingly, are the players who have so far disappointed this season. Andy Carroll has the lowest chance conversion out of all of the strikers who ply their trade at the top 7 clubs, a statistic which I’m sure if it were to be presented to the £35million striker, he would look back at you in shame. The 3rd most expensive striker on the list can be reprieved by the most expensive striker on the list who’s chance conversion rate is also pretty terrible. It was widely thought that Andre Villas-Boas has to either solve the Fernando Torres problem or just opt from using him at all. He’s done neither and as a result his team’s problems in attack has been noticable. Another player who has a poor chance conversion rate is Liverpool’s star striker Luis Suarez. Surprisingly, Luis Suarez’s lack of potency and quality in front of goal this season has gone largely unnoticed when compared to Andy Carroll, Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres.Craig Bellamy of Liverpool has the best mins per chance created statistics from all the strikers at top 7 clubs. It’s not too often that he’s been used as a central striker this season but this statistic of creating a chance created every 25 minutes is still impressive when you consider that Nani has created 1 chance every 29 minutes and David Silva has created 1 chance every 28 minutes. Other strikers who have been notably creative this season include Robin Van Persie and Edin Dzeko, both of whom have had a brilliant season to date.
With Nani back in top form and Rooney back to goal scoring , United do have a lot to celebrate despite the injury worries. Lets all pray and hope the FA CUP encounter with City ends up in our favor. The victory will be morale boosting to our mission in conquering the 20th title and the long awaited FA Cup. GGMU!! Stay United!!
