Hammers remain top of misses!

West Ham remain top of the woodwork hitting clubs with 19 missed chances this season.
They are followed by  Aston Villa, Leeds United and Manchester City – all on 15.
Brighton, Arsenal and Wolves are on 13 with Arsenal, Aston Villa and Chelsea on 14 whilst  Sheffield United have managed it  three  times.
Yesterday, Michail Antonio hit the woodwork against Arsenal at the London Stadium, his fifth time this season.
Pablo Fornals is the second most unfortunate of our player having been denied by bar and posts  four times.
Declan Rice and Angelo Ogbonna twice with Fabian Balbuena,  Tomas Soucek, Vladimir Coufal, Aaron Cresswell, Craig Dawson and Sebastian Haller once each.
However, it shows the huge offensive improvement in the team because last season we managed to do so on just 10 occasions.
With a touch more luck with his header, Craig Dawson would have taken his goals tally to five which from 16 games played would have been a pretty amazing performance from a central defender.

  1. Woodwork?
    Goals have been made of steel since the 1980s.

  2. I reckon if half of them had gone in we would be top of the league.
    On another subject we have only had two penalties this season, both won by a Man Utd player, how ironic.
