12 – Well, 12.03, the average length of a goalscorer’s name this week

    52 is a really interesting number. I did a quick glance at England, which has an additional game per week. 5 teams didn't use the full allotment of subs, with Fulham using none. That is 7 less than max. And let's remember that poor H96 had a six man bench they were so banged up (they still used 3). So 53 out of 60 vs 52 out of 54. I tend to think substitutions are a sign of tactics at work. Some are injury or resting players during blowout, but most are trying to change shape.

    I like this new format. It's entertaining.
