Statistics don’t always tell the full story when it comes to football and we’ve seen that plenty of times so far this season but in Aston Villa’s 3-3 draw with Preston North End on Tuesday evening, the statistics say that Jonathan Kodjia was our top-rated man.
According to website WhoScored our 28-year-old striker had two efforts on goal in his 73 minutes on the pitch and he even managed two key passes. Nobody else managed more than one shot on target.
Another man who managed two efforts at goal, albeit only one on target was Tammy Abraham and for the second game running we began with no natural wingers and ended the game with no natural strikers on the pitch.
I’m losing the will to live when it comes to why Steve Bruce makes this management lark look so complicated. Goes without saying I can’t see what he’s trying to build, I’m just not intelligent enough.
I, however, accept my limitations.
