Following the recently rumoured move of Everton's Lee Carsley to Arsenal for £25m (£20m if we throw in Vierra), I thought id do some statistical analysis on him and compare him to a recent aquisition of yours. One C. Ronaldo. Now admidedly these stats may be a little out of date, but the evidence is certainly apparent that Carsley may be better than C. Ronaldo... Player Name: Lee Carsley Starts: 13 Goals: 2 Mins Played: 1138 Bookings: 3 Sent Off: 0 Hair: No Player Name: Cristiano Ronaldo Starts: 10 Goals: 0 Mins Played: 915 Bookings: 0 Sent Off: 0 Hair: Yes Now most of those stats speak for themselves, but the two that really clinch it for me, that really make it apparent Carsely may just be the superior player are these two: Cards: Carsley has 3 of them, and I mean come on, who DOESNT like to get cards, especially at this time of year. Any player willing to get into the festive spirit will invariably be a real team player Hair: Carsely's lack of hair clearly makes him a hard bastid, which I think Arsenal really need. We have a reputation as being a bit soft, and never really making any hard tackles, so I think this may be a good thing for us. Also it is apparent that C.Ronaldo's lack of "hardness" is directly proportional to the ammount of hair he has more than Carsely. Finally, did you SEE his goal against Newcastle on Sunday. Absoloute cracker it was. If he only does that twice for us (as he has for Everton) then its worth the asking price alone. I think once again Wenger has proved his managerial genious by investing in little known talent, while Man U just continues to buy proven superstars - which just isnt very sporting - is it?
