Jack Butland

Oh gosh! You have just woken me from the snooze-fest that was transfer deadline day. I had everything ready for a day of drama and late night shenanigans from prima-donna Premier League players. Alas, we got nothing exciting. And with the FA Cup taking over this weekend, we have no movements in the table. Aye, I am a wee bit grumpy this week.

Stoke and Manchester United will be breathing a big sigh of relief mind, both of their super savers (and my favourite goalies – but don’t tell the others that) are staying put. So for the final fifteen games, I can watch Jack Butland (pictured) and David de Gea save their teams time and time again. And we are in for a real treat over the next couple of days as we have midweek Premier League football!
Aye, Bob Friendly won’t be grumpy for too long fans.

How the table works

Here at Scottish Friendly we thought we would highlight just how important keepers are to a team, after all they are savers in their own right! We imagine each game without keepers and take the number of shots on target by each team as the result. By looking at it this way, we can see which goalies have been busy winning their team points, while also finding out which ones are holding their team back.
