Our Record Stretching Back Over 17 Games Is Awful!
We keep hearing about a temporary blip as if it is only recently that we have lost form. Cobblers. How many goals have we scored in the last 17 games? Twenty. Digest that fact. Just twenty goals scored in the last 17 competitive matches - and some of those have been penalties! Just twenty goals in 17 games IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP! That is 1.176 goals per game IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP!
How many goals do you think we scored in our last 17 competitive games last season? That would be 28! In the season we finished bottom of the Prem, we scored 8 more goals in our lat 17 games, with Grant as manager, than Allardyce's team have scored over the last 17 games. True eight of those goals were scored against Championship opposition, but we scored them in two games! In fact, Grant's team scored 10 goals in three games against Championship opponents last season! That's half our total from our last 17 games in just three matches! And most West Ham fans call Grant a cnut!
And how many goals have we conceded in our last 17 games? That would be twenty guys.
Played 17, Scored 20, Conceded 20. Is it any wonder that we keep drawing games 1-1? And what has Allardyce done about it? Bemoaned our luck!
One last stat. How many goals did we score per game last season in the Premiership? Remember, that was the dreadful season when we finished rock bottom of the table? Well we averaged 1.13 goals per game, playing against the Manchester Uniteds, the Arsenals, the Chelseas etc. 1.13 goals per game against Premiership defences; and 1.176 goals against the likes of Doncaster, Millwall and Watford! What a God almighty fcuk up!
