MOTM Analysis So Far

Recommended Posts

Just so people realise that all the MOTM votes are being tracked I thought I would provide a brief analysis of who has been getting the votes so far.

In terms of the number of MOTM awards the top three are as follows

1. Mikel with 6 awards

2. Lampard with 4 awatds

3. Cech and Ivanovic tied with 3 awards

In terms of overall percentage of votes across all games the top three are as follows

1. Lampard with 19% (266 votes)

2. Mikel with 16% (223 votes)

3. Cech with 10% (140 votes)

Other bits of trivia are:

The top three players who got the most votes in any one game were

1. Deco with 66 votes for his performance against Pompey at the Bridge.

2. Lampard with 55 votes at home against Villa

3. Cech with 47 votes for his performance away at Wigan

(this doesn't really mean much though as voting numbers have dropped since the early games)

The top three players with the highest percentage of votes to get MOTM was

1. Cech away at Everton (91%)

2. Lampard away at Fulham (88%)

3. Lampard away at Hull (80%)

At the end of the season I will post more detailed results.

It might be interesting to see who won the most MOM in winning matches and most in losing ones, interested to see if a certain player has a bad game if we lose or Draw and if a certain player a good game if we win...

just something else to look into.

I can factor that into the analysis at the end of the season

Cheers for posting this up Loz, makes for an interesting read.

I did think that Mikel and Lampard would be towards the top, even if Lampard's form has dropped off a little bit over the past number of weeks.

You know, I was actually thinking of doing something like this myself, but after I had about 20-odd MOTM tabs open in my browser, my resolve weakened.

I had a feeling Mikel would come out on top though. Does anyone see him as our man of the season?

And funnily enough, he's still on 66 now!!

Interesting to note that Boswinga is nowhere to be seen yet lookng back over the season so far he has been - in my opinion - by far the best and most consistent player for us.

Behave! Despite the fan club he has on here i remain very unconvinced about Bos when push comes to shove.

Anyway - Deco 66 votes against Pompey!!!

Deary me. I remember frothing at the mouth that day in Aug.

The world was a very different place back then.

And how times change.

while mikel has been good, that he is anywhere near lampard shows how little some people seem to understand his position. he's been aesthetically pleasing more than properly functional.

he's been great when there is no specific player for him to look after, where all that he has to do is pass the ball, however he is still lacking when it comes to the most important function of a player in that position. of all the problems we have had this season (the obvious one being that we are still trying to pass the ball through the middle despite our two best passers being well off form), one I have not noticed mentioned is thaty we sorely miss makelele.

well I've only read a little... it's a bit difficult when you're knee deep in capital letters and self parody.

Use the "search all posts by Liam" function if you want to read the quality (and lots of posts about tits). Ethicalstrategy's posts will give you the other side of the argument.

I would entirely accept we miss Makelele - what team wouldn't? However I am not about to start criticising Mikel purely because he isn't as good as Makalele or ebcause he hasn't made us not miss Makalele.

Makalele was quite possibly the finest play in the holding role that we have seen in the game and it is unlikely we will see another player as good as him in that role in a Chelsea shirt in our lifetime.

So no we haven't replaced Makalele to an equal level however did Real ever replace Zidane to the same extent? Will Milan properly replace Maldini? Did they replace Baresi? Did Ajax ever replace Van Basten to the same level? Have Man Utd ever managed to fill the gap left by Ralphie Milne?

Mikel has not been Maka this season but, along with Lampard, he has been head and shoulders above every other player in the squad. I would say that the defence has not been as well protected as we have seen in prior years however this has as much to do with the fact we have two full backs trying to get forward a lot more, a right backwho can't defend that well, and centre halves who toss a coin to see whose turn it is to be injured next, as it has to do with Mikel's performances.
