I regret to inform you all but that is it. There aren't any more stories anymore in this spo-WROOONG!
Lets do this! (Great stats again pal)
Manchester City stories:
The season of 1957/58 for man city is a special 1. Because they became the first (and still the only) team to ever score AND concede over 100 goals in a season.
In 2006, City became the first Gay friendly employer sports team and no you cannot laugh, since most football teams followed City there footsteps which is a good thing
Manchester United. 19 first division championships, impressive? I guess. But what really counts is how you bounce back from relagation like West Brom used to do. So who has the most second division titles? Manchester City with 7 titles. Don't worry, if you think thats to many, we've been runners-up 4 times as well
If you have watched Aguero recently, you should notice he has Kun Aguero on the back of his shirt. Kun is his nickname given to him by his grandparents. Its origin is from a cartoon character called kum-kum from his favourite show as a child
Non-Citizen Football stories:
Qatar, the host of the 2022 world cup, have just 1 stadium. Thats right, 1 stadium, it holds 16k but it is an athletics based stadium and not an all seater stadium. Good choice FIFA
It's not like USA has over 100 stadiums that can hold over 75k and Australia has a good handful themselves.
Leicester City can hold the stat that they're 1 of the most unluckiest teams never to win the FA Cup, they have made 4 finals and never won.
Stephen Fry was at the Man Utd - Norwich game yesterday
Forest Green Rovers are the luckiest side in the world. Whilst in the Conference they should of gone down nearly every single year for 6 years running but didn't? How did they survive? The FA kept changing how many went down every year.
When Hull City went up into the premier league they at 1 point were 3rd early on. Drawing Yorkshires best position in the league since Leeds United went down. However, in that same season their luck ran out half way through and went on a 19 game losing streak (thats half a premier league season) and survived on the last day. All they had to do was do better than Newcastle United (who faced Villa) whilst they faced Man Utd, at Old Trafford. Hull Lost which means Newcastle only needed to draw! Sadly, they lost 1-0...to an own goal. My diehard Toon fan cried lol
England FC. Always seem to be 1 of the favs to go all the way, but hold on before you bet for them lads, because its not all great news for us. Out of 19 world cups we have qualified for 13, we didn't enter the first 3 and have failed to qualify 3 times. For the Euro Champs, we have made 7/13. With only 1 tournament we didn't enter, the rest we failed to qualify.
Of these 20 tournaments we have only made the semis 4 times, with only 1 of these being a win in '66. We aren't exactly the behemoths we think we are on paper.
Having said this, excluding Brazil, we're the highest ranked team in the world the most number of times. At 4. We also hold the record for longest spot as number 1. So nyeh to Brazil! lol
The first proper international match was Scotland vs. England in 30th november 1872. Who won? All of us did, a great sport was finally up and running (incidentally, it was 0-0)
Blind Chelsea fans look away now. Its hatred-section for me meaning I bash or praise someone who deserves it. This post is Frank Lampard. You blame Gerrard for Lampard not being so good hmm? Explain this then.
Gerrard - played 89 - scored 19
Lampard - played 88 - scored 22
Then remember Lampard takes all our pens. So take 3/4 away from Lampard. I don't give me that rubbish of he's better than Barry, Milner or Scott Parker. These guys are assisters and don't go for a lot of shots. Goals do not make a midfielder.
I'll just post stories from now on if you guys don't want the Van-BS included
Also sorry that these are more stats than stories, but I think interesting stats are just as good as some stories can be. Hope you enjoy.
