But some users are deadly serious.
I pushed too far, ok, but some stats were perfectly valid.
Like the one that Ney's goals in the league significantly dropped in 2015' compared to performances in 2014'.
We can joke now, but when the league match will come, it will always be like this:
1. If Ney will score a league goal
= some guys will say: you see, he scored. You were wrong
-- and that will be the end of discussion
2. If Ney won't score again in a League for 1-2-3-5-10 matches
-- if me or someone will reply: so, he is STILL or AGAIN not scoring in a LEAGUE...
= others will jump again and say: But who cares about the league? He was good in a cup, or in the first part of the Season, or he scored xx goals in all competitions
-- so, no matter how long he won't score (in the league), people will post his stats from a cup, CL or his overall stats from a league (and they are good because of his 2014's form)
So, imo, there is no way to find some "middle ground" here.
Fans who don't like Ney that much will whine.
And guys who love him will defend him no matter what, mostly.
And we can get to 1000s of pages in a few weeks with that way.
I will try to avoid posting on this topic.
Two "sides" of fans are just having a totally different views about this, and we can only argue, lose nerves, and start to hate eachother.
So, I will try to find a way to use that remark about "he hasn't scored a league goal from an open play for XX days" for some other player.
I will use that joke on Pedro, Iniesta or someone else, lol
