    He's scored 29 penalties in the Premier League, looks like 17 of those were away from home.

    Yeah I remember for a while Mahrez was on penalties for us over Vardy and seemed to miss more than he'd score and was frustrating as Mahrez was not a good penalty taker and you'd have zero confidence when he stepped up to take one.

    Made such a difference when penalties were taken off Mahrez and given to Vardy as you'd have so much more confidence than he'd score.

    As much as people joke about it, being a good penalty taker is an extremely good skill to have as part of your game.

    Wonder how many Manchester United goalkeepers have conceded 6 goals in the Manchester derby on multiple occasions?

    If you look at somebody like James Milner as an example, you knew insatntly Liverpool had scored every time they won a penalty. There are plenty of players who you do not have that confidence in. Even good penalty takers like Kane you expect to miss a few.

    Worked it out ither day and he's conceded 46 goals in MCR Derby's, 2 x 6s, 2x4 at least

    Mahrez got 8/10 for us but we haven't had a really reliable one since Yaya/Balotelli, In PL I'd only say Milner and Kane are 100% confident of scoring

    Jimenez has never missed a penalty in a league game. 31/33 overall - missed against Sevilla for us in the Europa QF and one for Mexico.

    No surprise if he has fitness issues.

    I read a stat that said Nunez had more shots against Rangers last night than Haaland has had all season.

    yes, he has a set of barn doors in his back yard. It means he is either very wasteful of opportunities or Haaland is just clinical in his finishing.

    Rafael Leao, Wilfred Zaha, Leroy Sane, Heung-min Son and Harvey Barnes have attempted 11 dribbles against Reece James this season. They've succeeded in 1.

    He had 5 goal contributions in those games too.

    Half the teams in the Premier League have players who share a birthday.

    Man City had 5 players born on the 27th or 28th of May.

    Hardly surprising. For a squad of 25, there's a ~56% chance that two of them will share a birthday. Statistics isn't my strong suit, but i'd guess that also means we'd expect about 56% of the teams (i.e. about 11) to have players sharing a birthday in any given season.

    That's wrong, but I can't be bothered to do the math now

    The last Watford manager to last more than 2 years was Aidy Boothroyd who was sacked when I was 1 month old
    He was also the last Watford manager to last more than 100 games
