We see your Xavi and Iniesta, and we raise you Barry Ferguson

Posted by - October 25, 2010 - Birmingham, Premier League


Who says the Premier League no longer attracts the best players in the world? Stats from Opta reveal that the most effective passer in England’s top-flight might just be Birmingham midfielder Barry Ferguson.

Last season the Scot topped the charts for most completed passes and this season it look like he will be in the reckoning once again. Saturday’s match against Blackpool saw him make his 500th successful pass of the season. Only Jon Obi Mikel (587), Michael Essien (565) and Paul Scholes (537) have completed more passes so far this term.
