Victor Anichebe's European record

Comments (4)

While bored at work, I've done some statistical research into Victor Anichebe in Europe:

v Metalist (h)- On for Yakubu after 65 mins, no goal
v Metalist (a)- On for Yakubu after 75 mins, goal after 87 mins
v Larissa (h)- On for McFadden after 64 mins, goal after 84 mins
v Nurnberg (a)- On for Yakubu after 74 mins, goal after 86 mins

Appearances: 4
Minutes on pitch (excluding stoppage time) - 82
Goals: 3l
Mins per goal: 27.33 recurring
Goals per appearance: 0.75
Goals per 90 mins on the pitch: 3.29

In conclusion, he's doing quite well.

To be honest I think this kid has more potential than James Vaughan. I await the kicking.Sorry but that is just how I see it. I am wearing my tin hat! Off you go.

Put your tin hat away Dave.

They both have plenty of potential, just different attributes. I’m just delighted to see each of them coming through so well. Vaughan is clearly a bit more subtle than Big Vic, but Anichebe’s brutality is fantastic as far as I’m concerned. I’m looking forward to the day when both of them are up front together.

Crikey Richard, ’quite well’! I’d say bloody well indeed :-) Whilst statistics can be misleading, that record is the equivalent of 3 goals a game, yet the mark of a great striker is 0.5 goals per game...obviously early days as yet but big Dunc did well a couple of seasons back in a similar role (though domestically of course)...but his goal record was not up the Vic’s level.
On another point you raise, JV is pretty brutal when fully fit too, but a slightly smaller beast of course. His game is more rounded than Vic’s and probably a more complete footballer. However, a striker’s job is to score goals so as long as they both excel at that it matters less who is perceived as ’better’.

You forgot to mention that he also won two penalties in those 4 games!!!
