Football Statistics – The End of All Arguments Has Arrived

Although the ”who’s better? Messi or Ronaldo?” debate will never quite go away, this website can offer a clear-cut answer to many of football’s questions.

For instance, has David de Gea been criticised far too harshly this season? According to the stats, yes he has, as the Spaniard has the best saves/shots ratio in the league. And just how good has Juan Mata been at Chelsea since his arrival? As reported by WhoScored.com’s statistics, with 7 goals and 4 assists since moving to England, he’s proven to be one of the best buys of the summer.

Perhaps individual statistics aren’t your cup of tea either though. Maybe you’d like to know just how superb Manchester City’s start to the season has been. How many aerial battles have Roberto Mancini’s men won? What is the successful pass percentage of the team? How many shots do they average a game? All can be answered by logging onto WhoScored.com.

Also you might like to check out pivotal games from the season. Take the Manchester United v Chelsea game which the hosts won 3-1. Despite having 50% more shots than United and more than twice the amount of corners, Andre Villas-Boas’ side contrived to lose the game. Equally, you might like to know just how United lost 6-1 to City at Old Trafford. Although having 49% and having far more corners, they were still humiliated in their own backyard.

How many shots were inside the box? How many outside? All brought to you thanks to WhoScored.com!

And the beauty of the website is that the statistics aren’t restricted to Britain. If you’d like to check on statistics from La Liga, Seria A, the Bundesliga and beyond, they also boast a library of information on pretty much any match that you would be interested in!

So check out WhoScored.com for all your football statistical needs!

    Great post – what we (in the getstats campaign) can’t fathom is how fans can make use of the most sophisticated stats but when it comes to other bits of their lives, they throw up their hands and say ‘I don’t do numbers’. Apply a fraction of that understanding of on field performance to, say, finances and we’d have a much more discerning bunch of customers, demanding better service from banks and pension funds.

    Or you could end up with what we have in baseball. Anytime someone attempts to use statistics to support an argument they’re branded a nerd and their opinion dissmissed.
