Lack of time means blog posts here are getting fewer and further between lately, but when someone gives me info like that below, I think why not share it.I just waited till the FA Cup fourth round was out of the way.
I’m dubious about the value of many stats in football, at least in the way they’re used without proper context. However, here are a few to do with Arsenal’s performance so far this season compared to previous ones, collected and tweeted by my old friend John Pickford (@theN5er). I haven’t checked all the figures, I’m trusting him.
What does it all mean? To me it means Arsenal have their best chance of the title for several years, and (if we’re unlucky) then the best chance we might get for a while – though I hope not. But Man U won’t always be crap and the Oilies will have to be curtailed by good old FFP to keep us near them in the long run.
But the good form – title winning form – has lasted over a year now. Three more months of it with the same kind of win ratio would be fantastic. The Islington Open Top Bus Company will be back in business!
