Arsenal bottlers, Moyes in the big time and consecutive scoring

5 – Arsenal have now lost five League Cup finals, more than any other club

2 – Number of major trophies won by Birmingham City. Yesterday’s triumph added to the 1963 League Cup

502 – Number of Premier League points gained by David Moyes. Moyes became the fourth manager to break the 500 point barrier, joining Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp

90 – Number of goals scored by Peterborough United in all competitions this season. They scored only 56 in all competitions in the whole of last season

2 – Number of Udinese players that scored hat tricks in their Serie A game at Palermo (Di Natale and Sanchez). The first time this has happened since 1952 in Serie A

50 – Premier League goals scored by Kevin Nolan, his fiftieth coming against former club Bolton on Saturday

4 – Daniel Sturridge has scored in his first four games for Bolton Wanderers. Demba Ba has cored in his first three for West Ham.

44 – Norwich City have only failed to score in two of their last 44 away league games. They didn’t lose either of those two games

31 – Years since Wolves had won by four goals in the top flight

64 – Number of games played by Sylvain Ebanks Blake since he last scored more than one in a game. Will he catch the Carlton Cole bug and get on a run?

    Daniel, I’m off on a right tangent here, but I’ve a suggestion for offthepost!

    When next season’s Premier League kicks off, how about starting a fantasy football league for fans (and contributors!) of offthepost! I think it’d be a great bit of fun!
