    The Hawthorns is the highest ( above sea level ) football ground in the UK.

    Port Vale's Vale Park is second and Oldham's Boundary Park the third highest.

    Ashley Young has played 241 times for United but only has 18 goals to his name. I know he plays RB now; but he has played a lot at RW/LW and that seems surprisingly low.

    Mourinho has better PPG ratio with us than Klopp has with Liverpool.

    Klopp - 204 matches: 115 W - 52D - 37L = 1,95 PPG
    Mourinho - 114 matches: 84W - 31D - 29L = 1,97 PPG

    Sorry, Mourinho has 144 matches. Sadly I can't edit.

    Hahahaha. Something about putting these underperformers in such epic poses with their names in big capital letters really got to me. Can't stop laughing.

    At least Rashford is really a young player who will come good.

    Vincent Kompany has won the Premier League more times than Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Vicente Guaita (palace keeper) kept more clean sheets in his 20 games (8) then DDG who played all 38. Even Cardiff City kept more clean sheets and they got relegated

    I've known for ages now but I was surprised when I found out Denis Irwin played for Leeds.Thought he just sort of appeared at Oldham before we bought him for a long while, even after he retired.

    I was only young when he'd have been there and they were division 2 so off my radar.
