View Full Version : Boyd Can Run

and run and run……….

George Boyd led the way with 13.53km covered against City– the fourth-highest mark in the division this season – and a remarkable 99 sprints.

Against City, seven Clarets covered more than 11km in the match. In contrast only one City player achieved that feat.

If you have the ball 70% of the time you don't need to run that far

They can have 95% possession for me providing it is in their half (which quite a lot was). It's what you do with your possession that counts ;D

They had 70% possession, we had 100% of the goals!!:D

I read this morning that Yaya Toure played last night.

Even a possession based short passing team uses pass and move which would surely require the need to cover a considerable distance a bit like a sentence requires punctuation no matter how long or short it is

You missed the full stop at the end of your post C_C. :D

That should give him 5 places in the seasons top 10 runs then.
Think Ashley has one place there too.

He's aiming for the 500, so he can do 500 more and fall down at our door!

He'd halve it if he could stop on the spot though. Turning circle of the QE2 has our George ;D.

George Boyd is our McCOY!a shining example of how
should take there football seriously, people say hes no need to run so far without the ball etc
As long he is doing what he feels is natural then he must be allowed to carry on! he stayed waiting off the crowded penalty area, and when the ball came out produced the REAL MC, COY!!!!!.
best goal at the TURF,since Robbie Blakes MAN UTD WNR when we were in the Premiership last time.

Stats like yesterday's 30/70 always put me in mind of a boxing match where one man wins the first 14 rounds and then gets knocked out in round 15.

There's only one stat that ever matters.
