On the whole Senderos – Hughes thing, I decided to look at all the games Philippe has played in and compare them to the games Aaron has played in. Except I couldn’t do that because Hughes has barely played CB in league games this year.
Instead I looked at the games Senderos has played in this year versus the equivalent games from last year:
I don’t know really. If I say “well, this is Jol’s impact and the new system. Transition, you know?” then it’ll look like I’m avoiding a conclusion that would contradict what I thought I think about Senderos. Certainly if the numbers had been different I’d have used them against Hughes, which is really why I’ve posted this: don’t want to just post things that fit conveniently with preconceptions. So… I don’t know. I don’t suppose this tells us much really.
