    the breakdown on Diego Carlos

    sorry for starting another thread on him, someone said they didnt know much about him but i cant find the post.

    This lad fills me with confidence because he is lightyears ahead of what we have, his stats and attributes are a fraction short of what Van Dykes are at Liverpool

    On the flip side of that, this lad also fills me with dread, it seems he has a bit of a Lascelles side to him, lapses in concentration, which result in a no nonsense style recovery, he wipes them out.

    The lad is quick and built like a tank

    He has had, 63 yellow cards in 237 career games

    the reds are a concern like

    Bit more info that was in TheMag:

    As for how good (or not) Diego Carlos is. I have been interested to see a number of comments on social media, allegedly from Spanish media / journalists and La Liga football fans, then repeated by Newcastle fans and certain media. The comments I am referring to, suggesting that the Brazilian is not very good, indeed, according to some Diego Carlos is absolute rubbish (or words to that effect…).

    With not watching him week in week out, as an outsider you look to the stats. This is how Sevilla have got on these past six seasons in La Liga:

    2016/17 – Finish 4th in La Liga, conceding 49 goals in 38 games

    2017/18 – Finish 4th in La Liga, conceding 58 goals in 38 games

    2018/19 – Finish 6th in La Liga, conceding 47 goals in 38 games

    2019/20 – Finish 4th in La Liga, conceding 34 goals in 38 games

    2020/21 – Finish 4th in La Liga, conceding 33 goals in 38 games

    2021/22 – Currently second in La Liga, conceding 13 goals in 20 games

    So, Diego Carlos signed for Sevilla in June 2019, bought from Nantes for 13m.

    In the three seasons before he arrived, Sevilla conceded 154 goals in 114 league matches, indeed, 105 in the very last two before Diego Carlos came in.

    Since the Brazilian arrived, Sevilla have conceded 80 goals in 96 league games

    In the three seasons before, Sevilla averaging 1.35 goals conceded per match, after Carlos arrived that average becoming 0.83 goals conceded per La Liga match.

    Diego Carlos has started 86 of the 96 La Liga matches since his arrival, so if he is as rubbish as some are claiming, the Sevilla has led a VERY charmed life these past two and a half years!

    None more so than this season, only 13 goals conceded in 20 La Liga matches and Carlos has started and played every minute of 19 of the 20. Leaders Real Madrid have conceded five more than Sevilla, whilst the clubs in third and fourth have each conceded 24 compared to Sevilla’s 13. It is absolutely obvious where Sevilla are strongest and why they are as high as second, five points off the top and with a game in hand.

    As to why then they would sell…the domestic money earned from La Liga is far lower than what Premier League clubs bank, especially for those clubs who aren’t Barcelona or Real Madrid, that pair taking the lion’s share of the money. It is a simple fact of life for most Spanish clubs that if they can bank big transfer fees, often from English clubs, it is very difficult for them to turn it down. Especially after the impact Covid has had on finances.

    Diego Carlos wouldn’t solve all of Newcastle United’s problems but after watching yet more woeful defending on Saturday at St James Park, I would be amazed if he wasn’t a significant upgrade on the current options and that along with Kieran Trippier, could be the beginnings of a far better defensive line moving on.

    Be interesting to know our stats in comparison when Lascelles plays. I don't have to look to tell you that we would be at worse, less weak. At best, we will be much better.
