Stat Attack - Spurs (h)

It`s the morning after the night before and it`s time to reflect, sadly, on a loss to Tottenham.

Flicking through the statistics I`ve picked the following three for you to mull over:-

1 - The 2-1 defeat to Tottenham means that we are the first reigning top-flight champions to lose a home league game, on New Year`s Day since 1948 when Charlton Athletic won at Anfield, beating Liverpool 3-2.

2 - The loss, yesterday, was our 4th home defeat in the Premier League this season. The history books show that no team has gone on to lift the Premier League title having lost four home games, a sobering thought!

3 - Wayne Rooney continues to pick up yellow cards at an alarming rate. The striker has been booked 5 times in the last 8 Premier League games. In all Rooney has 79 Premier League cards to his name. Although it should be said he is still someway off of the players who have picked up the most yellow cards in the Premier League, with the trio (who shall not be named) picking up 99 yellow cards each. I wonder what the odds are on Rooney becoming the first centurion!

Shows how good a manager Ferguson was, Moyes has a deal to learn. Right substitutes by him and they changed the game. Real pressure on Spurs last 15 minutes. Unlucky not to get a penalty and the point you should have got. At least it was entertainment, we haven't seen that for a while. lol
Ye Moyes has a lot to learn. How to buy good players, how not to ***** up in a transfer window, how to move Young, Anderson and Cleverley on, how not to get beaten at home by weaker teams, how not to be such a boring dour****. How to win a trophy. How to play in the Champions League, How to get into the Champions league. How to see the obvious faults in your squad. How to not make excuses about phantom penalties. How to lose the Everton "that will do" mentality. How to stop leering after Evertonians. How to entice world class players to come to the club. How to keep a top class successful coaching set up. How not to change our training methods to such an extent that half our team is injured. Yep he has lot to learn alright, which begs the question why the ***** didn't we get Klopp?
No doubt Rooney will be the first centurion, no issue with it as long as he breaks those goalscoring records along the way, will reflect both the
good side and bad side of Rooney's game.
