Fernando torres

Well what can you say about the man that has not already been said. As we all know torres is playing like a guy who doesn't even have the motivation. Well what can you say about the man that has not already been said.

As we all know torres is playing like a guy who doesn't even have the motivation to wear the club shirt. So instead of bashing torres like everyone else has been doing (and rightly so) i decided to look at some stats for his career so far. I'll begin with his third season at atletico madrid as the data was not available for the previous two seasons

Goals/game average= 0.405

Shot accuracy= 62.5%

Goals/shot= 50%

Goals/shots on goal= 85%

This is about the best that his stats go during his entire career besides his first season at Liverpool.

Atletico Madrid 4th season (2005/2006)

36 games 13 goals 82 shots 24 shots on goal

Goals/game average= 0.362

Goals/shots on goal= 43.1%

Torres's best season in terms of goals/game average

Liverpool 2nd season (2008/2009)

36 games 17 goals 107 shots 42 shots on goal

Goals/game average= 0.472

Goals/game average= 0.621

Shot accuracy= 38.5%

Goals/shot= 18.8%

Goals/shots on goal= 48.6%

Liverpool 3rd and a half season (2010/jan 2011)

Fernando torres

Chelsea 2nd season so far (aug 2012/ nov 2012)

17 games 6 goals 37 shots 20 shots on goal

Goals/game average= 0.353

Shot accuracy= 54%

Goals/shot= 16.2%

Goals/shots on goal= 30%

Robin van persie

Manchester united 1st season so far

16 games 11 goals 48 shots 23 sg

Goals/game average=0.688

Shot accuracy= 47.9%

Goals/shot= 22.9%

Goal/SG= 47.8%

Finally i decided to compare torres's this season with van persie this season and as expected every stat is better for van persie except the shot accuracy.

  • When torres came to Liverpool that was his best ever goals tally in a single season but since then he has declined.
  • Torres played the most games in a season last season
  • There is a shocking plummet in terms of form when Torres joined us. I was shocked by that sharp drop but I guess it was expected
  • Torres has hardly ever scored more than 20 goals in a season besides one season in terms of the league
    Another graph showed

  • Torres's goals/game was never good at Atletico in term of the heights he scaled at Liverpool.
  • The number of shots/shots on goal per goal has significantly decreased since Torres first started playing.
  • Again there is a significant plummet when Torres joined us.
  • Well what I think I wanted to prove here was that Torres always needed a large number of shots to score a goal meaning that if he doesn't get at least 5 shots in a game he might not score.

    That's all I have really it's over to you guys to make of these stats what you want
