Who Got Us the Points?…2017-2018

Of course football is a team game and every player contributes to the teams points tally throughout the season,  this however aims to nail down exactly who made the telling contribution to the teams points tally…which at first does sound a little bit more complicated it actually is….(idea taken from

  • In a draw. The player who scores the goal that secures a draw (our first in a 1-1 draw, our second in a 2-2 draw etc) is determined as having earned us that point; or the defence* in the case of a 0-0 draw.
  • In a win. The player who scores the goal that made sure we got a draw (our first in a 2-1 or 3-1 win, our second in a 3-2 or 4-2 win) gets one point or the defence in the case of a two nil win.
  • The player who scores the winner (the second in a 2-1 or a 3-1 win etc) gets two points (as he turned a draw into a win).

*defensive points are shared between the ‘keeper and the back four in the event of a defensive substitution the points will be split between the 2 players involved.

Meaningful Goals…2017-2018

this aims to find the player whose goals made the most telling contribution to our season. The game changers if you like…. And the key thing to remember in this is WHEN the goals were scored regardless of the final result. But what is a “meaningful” goal?

So goals that;

  • Give us a lead will earn the player two points, regardless of the final result.
  •  Put us level will get a point.
  •  Give us a two goal cushion will get half a point, as will a goal that reduces the deficit to  a single goal.
  • Put us three (or more) goals to the good will be considered as just the icing on the cake and won’t be rewarded, similarly goals that bring us to within two (or more) goals of the opposition will be considered as mere consolations and hence also not credited.
  • NB:cup goals count also
