Recommended Posts

Pure domination in the Pep era, Europe watch out...

 

59 goals at the half way point of the season is the highest in La Liga history.

 

They hit the woodwork more in the first half of the year than half way point Premier League leaders Liverpool's strikers scored combined.

 

Had the longest unbeaten run in Spanish top flight history.

 

First Spanish side to win 8 games away from home in a row.

 

Held the ball for 590 minutes in their first 18 games, that's 100 minutes more than Real Madrid.

 

9,104 completed passes, which is more than any other side in Europe. (2,000 more than Real)

 

Also effective football with 50 per cent of goals coming from team moves.

 

Have recovered the ball more often than any side in Spain.

 

More shots, more balls into the box and corners than any other team in La Liga.

 

Have conceded fewer corners or shots on target than other teams in Spain.

 

No team has had the ball in their box less often.

 

Shown the least yellow cards of any of the top four sides in England, Spain or Italy.

 

Second least amount of fouls conceeded and no penalties given away in first 19 games.

 

Eto'o is the top scorer in the three major leagues.

 

Lionel Messi has scored more goals away from home than anyone else.

 

At the moment Barca are averaging almost 3 goals a game and look set to break Real's record of 107 goals scored.

 

 

And because you can't have stats without Spurs...

 

The Spurs squad cost only 3 million euros less to assemble.

 

Spurs have had 44 players in their matchday squads, Barcelona have used a mere 23

Granted I think they are the best team in europe this year but I think the part that I have highlighted will cost them dearly in the end. They have not won in their last three games in the league (drew with betis 2-2, beat by espanyol 2-1 and now athletico 4-3) and looked seriously jaded in the champions league and the athletico game. If things go according to plan for them as well they may be playing a lot more than real and I can see this ultimately costing them the title. Fancy them for the champions league though.

The last few games i've watched in La Liga have been immense. Ath Madrid beat Barca 4-3 on Sunday and it looked as tho each team was going to score everytime they attacked.

 

Put the EPL to shame. Would be interesting to see the goals to games ratio of each league. To much teams playing that '4-3-3' formation in the Premiership that to easily reverts to a 4-5-1. You don't seem to get the Liverpool/Newcastle, Southampton/Man U, Spurs/Man City matches of old. The most entertaining team to watch seems to be Arsenal reserves in the Carling Cup!

The Madrid derby last night was another classic! Can't believe it finished 1-1, end to end stuff with both teams wanting to win the game instead of concentrating on not losing.

 

Robben is still the player he was at Chelsea, fast, skillful, exciting but with no end product (which is frustrating as f**k when you've got money on it :dontknow: )

 

Everton v Boro today, no doubt it'll be an open, attacking game :rolleyes:

The amount of goals he scores and creates is unreal. To consider him a luxury player is ridiculous.

That game was dreadful. If it was an Aberdeen player f**king up passes like the Everton and Boro players were they would be quite rightfully getting slaughtered on here for it. Terrible football from a bunch of players paid a tens of thousands of pounds a week :laughing:
