I'm still trying to get my head around this one!

In 08/09, Tevez, Rooney and Ronaldo started four league games together.

 

Makes sense - they had Berbatov in any of their stead.

 

Whereas the similar Gerrard/Torres stat (eight starts I think?) meant we had to bring on Ngog and Alonso/Masch getting injured meant a very young, inexperienced Lucas coming in.

In 685 club games, Ronald Koeman scored 239 goals. I know he took free kicks and penalties but that is a ridiculous number for a player in his position.

 

Yea, to put it into perspective, even if Cristiano Ronaldo took every free kick and every penalty for his club from a young age, I don't think he'd hit 240 goals in 680-ish games.

Jari Litmanen played for Finland's full national team in four different decades.


In the 2005/06 season, Kris Boyd was top scorer for both Rangers (26 goals) and Kilmarnock (17 goals) in the same season. 


David Moyes and David Beckham played in the same side when the latter was on loan at Preston.
