The argument is if youre are only going to look at stats, BWP is the best. I dont think thats how greatness should be determined though. Theyre important for sure, I just dont think you can overlook bad misses in important matches. I understand he has probably had a proportionate amount of bad misses in the regular season, but we are talking about the being the best ever. I think you expect the best ever to come up big when the big moment arises.
And, Im not an anti-stat guy; The Numbers Game by Chris Anderson is one of my favorite soccer books. I just think you have to look at more when about the GOAT.
No. Its just an example of how stats dont tell the full story. In terms of numbers, a goal is a goal. That doesnt mean the goal Mines scored is anywhere near the quality of the goal BWP in the first leg at Tijuana with three defenders hanging all over him.
Okay, so do you want to cite which Metro player is the GOAT, instead of BWP, on the basis of clutch scoring or whatever?
