    I thought these were interesting...

    Top goalscorers at the end of season.

    This one's huge.

    Combined goals and assists of all the players featured in Season's tables.

    Dennis Law 46 goals in 1 season...brilliant!

    Ronaldo may have beaten that but has dedicated many prime years to Real Madrid :/

    Giggs' assist stats are mindblowing...what a player.

    Also, when you read all this...it makes you realise what a legend Rooney is!

    Cheers!

    And some more tables where Giggs flat out dominates yet again.

    Top assisters>goalscorers combinations.

    All the combinations of our three best assisters (others are below 100).

    Found this interesting a bit as well...

    Top non-assisted goalscorers.

    When I was watching the goals, certainly first noticed Kanchelskis and a lot of his solo actions that led to goals. He gave me an idea for this table.

    If anyone has some ideas about other possible tables, please post.

    This is all I have until now.

    I'm honestly surprised that Rooney has that many unassisted goals. In this stat, are penalties and free kicks counted as assisted?

    Yep, counted. Basically same as transfermarkt and Opta's for fantasy premier league, but with a bit more common sense. Or so I would like to believe. More about it in first post of thread.

    Don't think Rooney's that high in that regard, more in the vein of other excellent strikers like Cole, or van Persie/Nistelrooy. One might read those stats seeing that they have something more in them, that they can more easily make themselves in a position to score than some others.

    Sure his ratio of unassisted goals to total goals isn't as good as Cristiano's or Giggsy's, but 14% is still more than I would guessed for Wayne. Off the top of my head I'm remembering a lot of headers, late runs in the box, etc, all the types of goals that are assisted. I'm curious; was his overhead kick against City counted as assisted, even though Nani's cross was deflected?

    Why is Lee Martin not credited with the FA Cup replayed final 1990 goal?

    Ah, one does not forget a goals such as that. He was credited, I guess you were looking at the other Lee Martin. I put one as Lee A. Martin (one you think about), and other (more recent) as Lee R. Martin.

    12th February 2011, right? Yep, have Nani as assisted. If the ball's trajectory is not significantly altered when passed or crossed, I gave an assist.

    Damn, this truly is an incredible piece of work. At first I was dubious when I opened up the OP. I thought it was going to be one of those threads where everyone works together to compile all the stats, but doubted how long it would last.

    Didn't need to worry, @Mrs Smoker did all the research alone. An absolutely brilliant effort and nicely presented. Well done.

    Cheeky response time:

    When it comes to stickying the thread or creating a separate thread with just your research it might be worth just going through some of the wrtie-ups for typos. I found this one one page 3.

    It also might be worth removing references to the current season, as these references will be out of date in a few months time.

    I am being quite anal I guess, but it's only because I'm in awe of all the time and effort you've put in to this.


    Lastly, and this is the really cheeky part, if you fancy deviating away from just scorers and assists, perhaps you could do a goalkeeper table, with clean sheets, and any other stats you deem pertinent.
    (you did ask for more suggestions :nervous:)

    In my defense, I'm not a native English speaker, but me am still well good. ;)

    (fixed those)

    As for goalkeepers, not cheeky at all, think I might fancy doing that, though, save for clean sheets, what more can we post about? For De Gea maybe there are some additional statistics kept somewhere, but doubt there are for older ones...

    This thread is brilliant. Ridiculous how many assists Giggs has accumulated over the years.

    Van Gaal should be made to read this thread, and stop wasting Rooney in a positon he has massively limited chances of goals or assists.

    Where do you get the assists and the other color coded figures?

    I would like to see this site or database or whatever.

    There's no site with the information, I just compiled the numbers in Excel after watching some 2,500 goals.

    That had to be time-consuming!

    Would you be willing to share the table? Or perhaps offer to post on one of the numerous United websites?

    Yeah, took a month or two, but it was quite fun, saw again (or for the first time) some absolute beauties. Got to know more about United from Fergie's early time. Time well spent, I say.

    Link should be this. Just a simple excel sheet, and not too pretty. I tried to be as thorough as possible, but if you see some errors, please let me know!

    Funny how my old friend Nani seems to be near the top on most of these tables you have posted even though he apparently has only ever had one good season for us. This as well as him probably playing nowhere near the amount of games most of the other players on the list did. But yet he is inconsistent apparently.....

    Goals and assists from dead ball situations would be pretty handy if possible? Brilliant work on compiling this by the way.

    Not sure how to present that. I have the data of when the goals are scored (though, 45 and 90 are the last, no 45+1, or 92, etc. just left it 45 and 90), but what to do with it? Will tinker about it...You have any idea for presentation?

    I've tracked goals that were scored from free kicks, penalties, and rebounds, but not corners. That enough? Too bad, would be nice to have those too, just didn't think to use them at that time. Another rewatch would be needed now, but we'll leave that for a future. :D
