they had 26 attempts and 17 on target...wow and only for bad finishing and even good defending from ned and dunney they would have battered us on chances. we rode our luck today but thankfully it was our day for a change.

40 odd goal attempts and the rags and Everton could only muster half those efforts in 120 minutes of the Wembley semi final greedfest.

Thank goodness it is the result that counts and not the stats. I knew they played well but did not realise they had 26 shots

Hughes should weigh these stats well. If he thinks a first team squad of 25 players can run the course of a successful season he is clearly wrong. We're all letting the coaching staff off the hook by saying players are tired. We had disasters in both the FA and League Cup competitions. Next season we will need a first team squad of 35 -- not 25, to compete on all fronts. Or the excuses about tired players will be what we get next season too. WBA were the better team today. We got lucky for a change.

As Mark Twain famously said there are lies. lies damn lies, and statistics. They mean nothing anyone remember that 0 - 0 score draw with Spurs a few years back when Wanchope missed 7 one-on-ones and City had 30 attempts on target? They mean nothing, only stat that does is 4 - 2.

I don't think i have ever seen a match stat sheet with so many goal attempts - amazed there was only six goals.
