Stat Attack!

Yes, it’s back for another season (massive relief for Stat Attack! fan Anton). Inundated with requests for its return (well, one or two), your weekly batch of meaningless stats and figures gathered by yours truly and verified by our club statistician, Benjamin Disraeli (still waiting on the wings (well, the right wing to be exact) for his first outing of the season).

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” Pupularied by American Mark Twain and attributed by Twain to Disraeli, although Benjamin can’t recall ever saying that – time for an HIA methinks!
