The table does not lie

I guess since the win last week we have forgotten how bad the results have been this year and Patrick Kinmartin reminds us of this.

VALUE SCORES

Including the dramatic score by Andreas Weimann in the final minute of Saturday’s 1-0 win, here below is the situational chart for all goals scored by the team’s players under 23 years old.

1 while team was already ahead
2 while team was already behind
6 to give team the lead
3 to draw team even on the scoreboard
