This think about Bily being the fastest player takes the (proverbial) biscuit ? It's from the Mail Online:
Quite simply (in best Victor Meldrew voice).... "I don't believe it!"

Now if we are talking shot power?

I just hope he is the fastest one out of the club because I will personally drive him to the airport and believe me I will break all known speed records getting him there just in case he changes his mind.

From the fact that some team's keepers are down as their slowest players, this must mean Howard is actually a faster runner than Heitinga. At least we finally have statistical proof that Osman is not the slowest player in the Everton team.

Interesting to see that, by distance covered, we seem to be one of the fittest teams though?

Total garbage. And when you think that its political coverage is of about the same standard of accuracy ? well, I suppose it's always good to have one's opinions reinforced from time to time.

For me I'd say:
Not necessarily in that order...

Rodwell needs a huge swathe of open space to motor into before then inexplicably slowing down to pass sideways instead of doing what we all want him to do and beating some defenders and having a shot. Beckford too will be first onto any ball in toward the corner flag but is always second best when the ball is towards goal or he's trying to beat a man.

I hear The Yak was the fastest into the canteen after training and no-one at the club could scoff down a Ginsters quicker than him!

Seriously, a players style of running can lead to the wrong impression about how quick they are. Pitter-patter steps like Michael Owen's exaggerated how fast he looked and he looked even quicker than he really was (and he was quick) Viera's long lopey style made him look slow....but he wasn't. Not as simple as you might think.
Bily can cover the ground very well but unfortunately as handy as pace is the game is about far more than that.
