Déjà vu?

From Michael Cox of the Guardian, though they used different Chalkboards:

Fulham may have appointed two managers since Roy Hodgson left the club, but their performance in the weekend win over Wigan was classic Hodgson. They sat back, played very narrow and won the ball on the edge of their area, before occasionally moving up the pitch to construct attacks of their own.

Passing stats on each day:

  • Wigan: 79.4 % (551; 438, 113) Fulham: 76% (463; 354, 109)
  • Burnley: 74.5% (511; 381 130) Fulham: 73.4% (535; 393, 142)

Hmm…

Fulham DNP

Since Clint arrived at Fulham in Janaury 2007, Fulham have played Wigan 10 times and scored 12 goals total in that span. Clint played in nine of these fixtures, and has scored 6 goals.

In the past 5 fixtures against Wigan he’s scored 4 of the club’s total 8 goals, and assisted in another.

So of Clint’s 36 total league goals, 6 [ed. oops, not 12. too many numbers in this here post]  have come against Wigan. That’s probably the most for his career, but if anyone could point me toward a site that tallies all his goals scored against each club, I’d appreciate it.
