  1. Premier League scorers and assists - predictions for the weekend of 3rd December

    by , 3rd December 2011 at 08:49 AM (11v11 blog)
    This week Spurs look a good bet to run riot against lowly Bolton so our successful combination of Adebayor and Bale now serve as star selections. The early kick-off features Newcastle and Chelsea. Last week, of course, we picked Ba and Sturridge as the scorers in their matches and two assists by Mata (the Chelsea duo were our star selections). Hopefully our lads continue to produce the goods this weekend.

    We'll update the predictions to incorporate line-up information prior to kick-off.

    1. No Frenchmen for Arsenal
    In their game with Fulham at the Emirates Stadium on 26 November there was not one Frenchman in the Arsenal line-up for the first time since September 2005. In addition, including their three substitutes, Arsenal fielded a team of 14 different nationalities – a Premier League first.

    Since the start of the 2005-06 season Arsenal have fielded players from 26 different nationalities (40 since the inception of the Premier League) and this is their table of appearances:

  5. England national football team site relaunched!

    by , 30th November 2011 at 11:33 AM
    In plenty of time for the upcoming European Championship, the Association of Football Statisticians is hereby relaunching our England national team site to the general public.

    The site contains details of every 'A' international match, every line-up and every player to have donned the England shirt. In typically English fashion, it also includes all the opponents. The first match was, of course, against our mighty northern neighbours and the site faithfully records all encounters between the two giants of world football, all the trials and tribulations, as well as the famous world cup victory, against the Germans, of 1966.

    We name this site England and may she bring fair winds and good fortune to all who surf on her.

    by , 29th November 2011 at 12:07 PM (11v11 blog)
    Winner of this week's Goal of the Week is Jermain Defoe:

    - Having been given a tough test at West Bromwich Albion, Jermain Defoe gave Tottenham Hotspur a crucial lead with a devastating counterattack goal on 81 minutes.
    - Emmanuel Adebayor's backheel close to the halfway line sent Defoe charging forward before he finished with a clinical low drive from 20 yards out.
    - Spurs went on to clinch the ninth win in their last ten Premier League
  8. Premier League Performance of the Week: Wigan Athletic

    by , 28th November 2011 at 07:16 PM (11v11 blog)
    Wigan Athletic win this week's performance of the week:

    - Understandably low on confidence, the win at Sunderland took the Latics off the bottom of the Premier League table.

    - It came after suffering the disappointment of only drawing last week’s home game against Blackburn Rovers in controversial circumstances.

    - The team with the worst record in this season’s Premier League went behind after only seven minutes at the Stadium of Light.

    - Buoyed by a penalty equaliser at the end of the first half, Wigan fought back after the break to grab a last-gasp winner by Franco Di Santo in the third minute of added time.

    - It was only their second win of the season. The other was against newly-promoted Queens Park Rangers ...
