Got some statistics to describe the Galloping Major?
I kid, because I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with the idea of statistics in soccer. I bought wholeheartedly into my English schoolfriends’ notion that counting assists was pushing the very limit of American-style overthinking it, and said “that’s enough for me!” then immediately my dark American heart began clawing at me for Player Ratings, then pass-to-turnover ratios, then left-footed vs. right-footed efficiency.
But the chalkboards? Meh. Although I hope Marc keeps putting them out there because maybe eventually they’ll puncture my remaining reserve and, being a liberal, I’m always in favor of personal growth; until then I’m just going to keep enjoying this guy.
