Long Ball Team?


Recommended Posts

The last stats on this I saw showed there are 5 other clubs in the league who play a higher % of long balls than Villa.

Think that would be this one from the Daily Mail of 28 December


That is Opta's count of the percentage of passes made that are over 35 yards long (apparently the official stats definition of a long ball).

I think we're still well up there, even though only 6th!

Of course, this doesn't measure how clever or clueless the long balls are and I would say at present our long balls are mostly dumb, hopeful or hopeless.
