This is a beautifully crafted banter stat. Absolutely world class wordsmithing to maximise banter whilst still being technically correct
Here's the context:
VVD has made 4 errors total, 3 leading to goal (LTG)
VVD has also played more minutes than any other player in the league (7203)
7 other players have 3 errors LTG, 2 of them in 40% of the minutes
Obviously not all errors lead to goal, some just lead to shots which aren't scored
19 outfielders have made more errors
Willy Boly has actually made 9 with zero LTG (i.e. somehow he's got away with all 9)
Jonny Evans has 7 with zero LTG
Davinson Sanchez 7 (1 LTG)
If you normalise for minutes played, VVD makes an error every 1801 minutes (every 19 full games). 184 players have made errors more frequently
1615 Gomez
1585 Maguire
1439 Coady
1312 Zouma
1141 Tarkowski
1105 Mee
1013 Stones
924 Lovren
897 Soyuncu
807 Evans
602 Boly
368 P.Jones

Here's where I stand on not reinforcing the #LFC squad.
We got 97 points last season but didn't win the EPL because we're competing with one of the greatest club sides ever.
We also got 97 points through a series of positive skews that don't happen or align every season. Namely:
Availability of best players
Set plays/Penalties
Outrageous winning goals (Everton, Spurs)
Purple patch finishing (mane, Origi)
But even with all those positive skews, it only took a minor run of stodgy attacking form in Jan/Feb to drop the points that saw us eventually end up behind City. Hell, even the defence wobbled for a couple of games.
