Just been reading the Opta stats on Sky Sports (yep i'm that bored at work) and came across an interesting stat...
Everton currently have the highest shots on target percentage out of everyone in the Premier League with 52%. The 4th highest overall shots on target (which is no mean feat when we have taken far less shots overall then other teams). The Yak also has the best shots to goals ratio of any of the top scorers with 33%.
Unfortunatly despite our imitation of Arsenal over the last few weeks we have made only the 16th most passes in the Premier League. I have to say though I'm quite impressed by some of our stats there and suprised too.

Which just shows we can score from anywhere.
Hopefully see more through the Christmas period.

That being said, I realize such distributors don’t grow on trees either. But if there is any investment of major cash, that would be my ideal acquisition.

(e.g. Ossie against Sunderland)

We are second in the premiership on recent form (over the last 6 matches).
And, we are the most lethal team in injury time in the premiership. Shows a belief that we can win right down to the final whistle (as WHU can attest!)
