This is from Andrew and inevitable we turn our focus to Saturday, no one really knows what the atmosphere will be like. The most interesting game of a few years.
Found a few bits of information comparing mcleish to MON, this is facts from MONS last season in charge of villa.
We must remember this season is not over and there is 5 more games left, and I’m unsure if the man united game was included in these stats which could add quite a bit more. But enough of that here are the stats:
141 saves made
Clean sheets 21%
1.06 goals per game
Goals conceded 1.45
191 saves made
Clean sheets 39%
1.37 goals per game
Goals conceded 1.03
Well as you can see from this info the defending is not much different, how ever we must look at the comparison of goals per game and goals conceded, which doesn’t look a lot at .3 but that’s an extra goal every 3 games under MON and extra goal conceded every 3 games under mcleish.
To top that I think we can all clearly see the massive difference in attacking stats, so according to mcleish he is not defensive? Well I believe these stats prove you wrong Mcleish and prove you actually are not as attacking as you say so.
A lot of arguments will arise from such things as; we do not have Young and Downing, however please keep in mind we have Mcleish’s “great” winger buy in N’zogbia ( same price as Young) and we also had Bent for half the season.
So have a read and post your views on what you think.
