Ndidi is one of my favourite midfielders. Great footballer
Bissaka's also missed 2 games, hasn't he?
Feel like pure shit, just want Mo Diame back
Expand More Comments
AWB getting so many tackles in despite games missed is impressive tbh
i will never understand why United never tried for Ndidi or Gueye
Damn Ricardo what a beast
Get in Deccers
Ndidi is only 22!
Surprised to see Ricardo there, haven't watched that much of him but always got the impression he was a more attack-minded player. Good on him though.
Tackling or not, Ricardo Pereira is an absolute beast of a player. One of the top ten fullbacks in the world atm given his form. Leicester could go far once more with him and Ndidi. Incredible players.
Rice rice baby!
That's great but more tackles also implies more time spent without possession and having to make tackles to win it back.
Missing Idrissa Gueye dominating everyone this year
I love Ndidi but I have always been a fan of Romeu. He could do a really good job as a rotation option for Arsenal or United or even Liverpool tbh. He's a really tidy player.
Could Ndidi play in Fabinho role?
I wanna see who the worst tacklers are
Paulo Maldini: "If I have to make a tackle, then I've already done something wrong"
tackling isn't a good sign for a defender
Gana, we miss you.
That honestly looks like a 2008-2010 world XI. Gonna miss Torres!
This XI at their respective primes would score 20 goals against any team and concede like 15
cries in Dutch
Someone's been playing too much FM
I still can't believe we never won anything with van Persie, Sneijder and Robben.
Didn't LvG come out and say that he didn't retire? Also OP wtf did you do to the pixels
taken from yesterdays thread
FYI, the values below the player names indicate their highest career value according to Transfermarkt
Berbatov on the bench
think Robben could still do it in serie a
The thought of facing Eto'o, Torres and RVP in their prime is terrifying.
I remember signing Robben from Groningen on CM 00/01 when he was but a child!
On CM 01/02 his transfer to PSV was arranged and you had to wait a few seasons before you could sign him.
Van Gaal at sweeper, unleash the secret weapon!
Robben, Basti and Etoo are way underrated compared to the other midfielders and attackers
Fellaini would destroy that back line
Didn't Drogba retire this year too?
This makes me very sad. These guys were the best in the world when I started watching football. Time literally flies...
All the guys I grew up watching at International tournaments. Sore one.
Makes you feel a bit old lol
What a team! We are really getting old lol
A three man defence with two full backs? Very nice /s
backline is meh but above that is scary
So for Maguire today you could’ve gotten Sneijder and Robben in their prime 7-10 years ago.
Forlan retired a few weeks ago I think, Id put him as a starter
This team would be bonkers if all of these players were in their prime together
My childhood! Nooo!!!!!
You can make an XI for just about anything nowadays.
So which XI is up next? Born in 2001?
FIFA 12 dream team
Remarkably solid team.
Why is Barzagli only 14.5 mil?
Eto'o only plays on the left for Mourinho
This defense would get wrecked no bad. Robben aint tracking back! hahah
Somehow Barzagli retiring went over my head
I mean, can we just sign these guys for a few weeks and see what happens? What's the worst outcome?
Where's the complete list of retirees?
That team would hump man utd
Goodbye 2010/14 Netherlands ;-(,,,,,
Eto'o was underrated I think he's the most successful African in champions league history too, the guy was the definition of a poacher clinical af
Some fantastic players in that, then evra
10 years back this would be an elite squad?
Seems a little pl biased. Likely there's better outer backs and GKs
A better starting 11 even today than Manchester United's.
Childhood now Officially Officially Over...
LvG bringing back the sweeper
Did van Gaal retire? I must have missed that.
I feel my man Jonas deserves a shout out. Might not have been worth 50M but could that man play!
I'm gonna miss Van Gaal's memes.
This makes me sad.
All were world class at one point, those fees look small compared to now but then 2£20-30m+ go you a top to world class player, now £100m is being spent on potential.
But... my childhood 😢
Torres really shouldn't be there
This team would wreck any other team in present day.
Four ex-Chelsea. That generation that I idolised growing up is pretty much gone, so many found memories of all four of them.
Should play Van Persie at AM to get the chemistry points.
Ashley Cole, the one time best left back in the world, at right back?
TBF, Cech is retiring to play another professional sport.
I’d love to see Cole as a right centre back
What about marchisio?
This is honestly sad...
Arjen Robben as right wing back. Ashley Cole right centre back?
This makes me feel old
I’m sorry but that’s a fucking terrible formation
My God Evra... we need to find another defender.
I hate him even more than Domenech
This is ridiculously unbalanced: first you have a 3-men defense with 2 full backs - 3-men defenses are generally 3 CBs. Then a 4-men midfield with 3 CMs and one winger? And finally 3-men attack with 3 CFs, basically same type players.
It's supposed to be 3-4-3, but is actually something like 1-5-1-3.
How is Sneijder worth more than Robben. It's a crazy world out there
This team could easily win the Europa League.
The best English LB, arguably the best LB of all time, playing as RCB.
What a formation.
these players “retired in 2016
No fue penal
Drop Evra. Put Cole on the left, Barzagli on the right and Juan in the middle
Ah yes, the great right sided centre half Ashley Cole
Where is Ronaldo?
Poor Barzagli, he’s going to get swamped being in that backline.
Full time club. Part time hospital.
It's not really that bad. Florenzi, Under, Perotti, Dzeko & Mkhitaryan are all expected to be back after the international break. The others are more long-term though.
Every year we have a massive injury crisis. The medical team really needs to be tarred and feathered
At this point I'm convinced that there's a bot that just silvers any post with the word "injury" in it.
The surprise is that Pastore is not injured
Crystante still on loan? Wtf?
It’s business as usual for us
Italian Norwich City
Will we finally be able to beat them, now?
is that bad? /s
This seems familiar.
Straight out of my FM save
Wtf why is pastore not injured :O
At least Mike Smaldini is fit
Good fuck roma - lazio fani dont wish injuries for any players... just the ones that play for juve and roma
Is Transfermarkt popular outside of Germany?
Scenes when Montella is your best coach in nearly a decade
Seems like they struggle to attract a big name really.
When will it be Shevchenko's turn?
when Montella is the most winning Milan coach of the last decade, you should start questioning yourself
I refuse to believe that Pioli isn't Michael Stipe from R.E.M.
Should’ve kept Miha. Thank you for Romagnoli and Donnarumma.
Just wait until Zlatan comes in as player-coach in December
Allegri really was a good manager at Milan, but its a shame that his last season ended so poorly.
Milan have done what we have done, loads of money on average players, manger sacked etc
Inzaghi and Giampaolo were awful. I don't believe the others did a bad job. Seeing comments that Montella was the best manager you had since but I feel Gattuso has been the best, he resurrected the club and I never understood why he left, he should still be there.
Imagine thinking milan would ever be in this position 10 years ago
Noticing quite the trend here.
Maybe they should stop hiring former professional football players?
As much as I like Milan (I really do. They're the reason I love and watch Serie A) seeing their fans chirp Inter fans on not winning anything since the Coppa in 2011 is kinda ridiculous when you consider the last trophy they won since the Scudetto in 2011 was a Super cup won on penalties coached by a manager who was sacked the following season.
Fortunately for both clubs' fans the banter years nearly line-up. Unfortunately For Milan, Inter seems to have moved past their's :( Until they achieve some sort of stability with their staff (Upstairs and coaching), it looks like this shit will stay the same.
Failed to mention Cristian Brocchi who managed Milan from April 2016 to june 2016 after Mihajlovic was sacked. He was shit too: 2W, 2D and 3L in 7 games total.
I don't get the concept of bringing a club legend as a manager just because they are a club legend.. being a great player and a manager is a whole different story
How would AC Milan fans feel about Wenger?
Bah Gawd thats Jose Mourinho music
Seedorf looks like he is still playing age and Inzaghi looks like a hip grandpa.
Was Seedorf bad?
Why does Pippo look like Mick Jagger here?
Seedorf 1,84 points/game
Allegri 1,81ppg(1,16 last seasono)
Apparently seedorf was our best couch with a quality-wise bad squad
The phrase "permanent coach" is such an antiquated term at this point.
Wait they kept Inzaghi for over a year?
The problem at Milan is further up the chain
Very similar to São Paulo FC.
35% winrate? I think I could do better... xD
Should make the list since their last Serie A win, to compare these with Allegri, in my opinion. I don't have the number of days in charge, but I think it's pretty irrelevant vs number of matches.
The rest of the list (including caretakers) for reference, all from Transfermarkt.
I see a pattern. When will they learn getting ex players unproven as managers out of nostalgia isn't a sound strategy
Their one trophy was also an Italian Community Shield...
Manchester united: hold my beer
They didn't even bother to include brocchi-taka
They are the Man Utd of Serie A
Why not go for Mourinho? Is it because of his ties with Inter?
Forgot to include Brocchi
I thought Sinisa Mihajlovic was the Wikileaks guy
That last trophy? It was named after Albert Einstein.
Well, at least Milan can still claim to have won a Serie A title this decade.. amazing that Juve only barely qualified for EL that season. Things sure do change a lot in a pretty short period of time. I miss Serie A being genuinely competitive.
Maybe in another 9 or so years Milan will be winning the league again.
This continues to be one of the cleanest charts in terms of presentation I see on here. It’s great.

I regret opening this.
we could be 3rd we could be 11th.
Would be great if we could stretch the unbeaten run to 7 and go 3rd. I’m really excited about ours and Leicester’s seasons. Unfortunately I have just remembered we have no fabianski :(
damn these are really cool, dunno why I haven't see the previous ones. could you consider doing brasileirao (the brazilian league) too?
Was this created using ggplot2? It’s really nice.
Tottenham out of form against Brighton?
Man I miss the days of never moving from sixth place memes.
I know we’re 4th but +1 GD at this stage in the season is grim
These charts are amazing, any chance of there being an eredivisie one?
How are we adrift already
8 weeks in and we could end up in the drop zone. Silva needs to sort things out sooner rather then later.
Nice chart OP! Take an upvote!
What program are you using to generate these? /u/phigo50
If watford lose at home to sheff United then they are definitely relegation favourites, if they’re not already
Leicester been doing that well? How has their run been so far? I haven't had much time to follow them.
I wish there were more teams fighting for the title this season. this is another 2 horse race. a repeat of 2018/19 season!!
You love to see it
Why does impossible have a separate bar?
Bloody hell m8
I love these charts. Keep up the good work!
10th is not a midtable club.
Leicester having another good season I see. Imagine they somehow keep up with Liverpool and Man City.
What happened to Watford this year?
I'm sorry, but I'm having trouble understanding this.
I get the premise, but the blue circles are confusing me, particularly for the mess of teams on 11 points.
Or, how do the blue circles compare to the white circles? Is it that the white circles are current position, and the blue circles are position for end of week 6?
Really cool chart, I like how in the early season the midtable clubs can go to the relegation zone or a European place based on one result
So what your saying is if Brighton beat Spurs they could be fucked.

He was on course to do it in 310 appearances before Pep went to City.
And Madrid's bosses thought David was a party man lol
Every time he shaves his head he loses 5 years.
Give Bernardo Silva another 4 years and he’ll beat that record
Cech out here
Detriment. 30.79% of all David Silva’s Premier League games resulted in his team dropping points.
— The Sun
There aren't a lot of people that appreciate just how difficult it is to consistently world class in consecutive seasons for close to a decade.
Who is the fastest player to 10 wins?
Players don't get PL wins, teams do.
3 of those players are from Chelsea tho
3/5 are Chelsea players from ‘the golden age’
A criminally underrated player, and he’s still highly rated.
Best to ever grace the league for me.
Not sure of how this state is meaningful or useful , wins are down to the team, manager etc. This stat would be more meaningful, if it were ranking teams not players.
And he's got a big dick
Do it without plastic oil teams now.
is it me or is david silva a bit of a boring player
like u see it at the end of the game "oh wow silva has 200 PL wins" but u can never remember them.
can u remember a single silva win ?
but try peter crouch...u can see the header i remember a crouch winning header.
Had no idea this was a measured statistic
David Silva? More like David GOLD right?! Right?!
Genuinely one of the best PL players of all time. Best this decade and all time top 3 in my opinion. This just proves it
if there a list where we can check progress? surely someone like Trent Alexander Arnold is well on his way
4 out of 5 from clubs with shady monetry backing, classic
who knew its gona be man city player before they click>
Dumb stat. This has so much less to do with him than the environment and circumstances he's been in, other than being a good player. An early purchase by a side that spends over a billion on transfer fees and salaries. The only thing this indicates is that he a) was an early adoption into the program b) he is good enough to stay in the squad c) the oil money and decisions were enough to be largely successful. That said, it's not too knock him, because he's been one of the best players in the EPL for the better part of the last decade.
This should be a team stat, not an individual player's stat.
If klopp stays beyond 2022 (unlikely), the current bunch of Liverpool signings can make the list too.
Why not just show the entire 1st Division?
Basically shows the best premier league sides. Current Man City, Mourinho Chelsea and Late 90's United.
And still doesn't have a badge in that table. Fuck sake Google, show some fucking respect
Fifa CM glitch on full power
Can’t believe Boavista is 4th, their football is shockingly bad.
Famalicão has yet to face us and Benfica, but their win against Rio Ave and draw in Guimaraes have aged like a fine wine, they seem to be the biggest competitors for the European places.

Love these tables, thanks for making them. As an aside, I realize we're only 5 match days in, but it's still a bit crazy to me that only two teams have won more than half of their matches so far this season in the PL. Last season at this point, there were 7 teams that had won 3 or more matches.

How is United 4th with 2 points behind City after all the jokes
Go big or go home time boys!
So unusual to see United in the top four
the "impossible, because of other matches" is useless - all the other labels are already the 'possible' values, this one is just there for the author to show that while those spots look possible they actually can't be reached.Adds no value. We know you've calculated it mate, get over that and remove it, it'll look cleaner!
to me it says a lot that Man City have had a rough couple of weeks, and still have 109 points available to them. and that I can still see them finishing somewhere close to that amount.
How the 2019/20 Bundesliga table could change in gameweek 5.
Even if it’s only the MLS, it’s still absolutely impressive how Ibrahimovic has been able to score so many goals considering he’s turning 38 in two weeks.
Hasn't Martinez scored in some absurd 14-15 games in a row?
Has De Boer turned it around at Atlanta?
Come on Vela! I still have a fucking Arsenal shirt with his goddam name on the back.
Also worth noting that Atlanta's Brad Guzan is only 2 games shy of the single-season clean sheet record.
Why only 4 games left?
I’m surprised Zlatan and Josef are so close, I had assumed Vela had run away with it.
Last I checked wasn't Vela miles ahead?
Ibra is MLS goat
Zlatan will win this
The fact that they compare Vela, who I love, to ibra is insane.
What’s the record?
Stones strikes me as the type of player that can only shine if he has a leader beside him. Otamendi just seems like a basketcase
Stats a bit skewed considering Stones-Otamendi played in that first season when the whole defense was leaky along with Bravo being a ghost...
Stones-otamendi takes first season pep games into account. When they had a worse team all over
Interesting that the win rate drops so much for Stones-Laporte despite them conceding fewer goals.
I'd be interested to see how Stones - Otamendi did in the Centurion season because I remember them being great
The conclusion I am reaching is that Laporte was an awesome signing.
Stones and Fernandinho would be a better partnership imo.
That win % stat turns me on.
When does Otamendi's contract expire?
Stones needs a solid partner. Surprised they didn’t splash some cash this offseason.
One possible bias: some pairs featured consistently in easier games, while other pairs featured in the hardest.
I think they deserve a bit longer as a pair before we judge them.
Would like to see this without including the first season.
I am more interested in these stats minus the first Pep season..
Laporte good Stones bad
But but we spend our money so so well. Other teams have a high net spend but they spend it on flops, can't blame us for ruining football.
Some City fans find it hard to comprehend that 99.9% of teams can't spend 30m on a CB then another 50m the next window to replace him if he flops.
Feel like shit just want Stones Laporte
Okay but let’s see Arsenal’s
we've got this really great CB mustafi who is looking for some playing time...
so basically laporte and kompany make everyone pair with them looks good?
So Stones is the biggest liability, thats not great from an England perspective. I am impressed at how good Kompany was right until the end, class is permanent
when your 100 mil odd partnership sucks 🤕
Stones = 50 million well spent /s
Honestly thought Otamendi would of been out of the door as soon as Pep arrived, way too rash for a Pep team.
Gonna go out on a limb here and suggest Man City fix this problem with money.
Right into my veins.
68% is a fucking crazy good win rate... but not good enough 😏
So in a nut shell..otemendi is shit
This belongs on r/mcfc
And I got downvoted for saying city’s chances just decreased immensely
As a Liverpool fan that make me smile.
Stones and otamendi yuck
