    Gregoriak,

    I think you made a mistake in the way you counted the number of blocks made by the defenders in 1970. I see for example that Matosas had 6 blocks, not 27. I think you confused blocks with interceptions.
    Kuddos for your great work anyway.

    It is very good work (tried something by myself a few days back as indicated on page 1 but had problems with excel) but it would've been even better if all categories are included or only a well-thought selection of some (i.e. it is nevertheless defensible to include three passing categories but no foul categories).
    And as schwuppe pointed out in this thread, it is also possible to relate them to the minutes the players played (with a certain threshold applied in terms of minutes or absolute blocks/tackles/goals whatever). At this moment the players with more minutes/games have an big advantage.

    Nevertheless interesting and the small gap between Seeler and Pelé is surprising.

    No specific criteria, except that a minimum of 2 games had to be played. Countries I didn't look at were Morocco, Israel, Mexico, El Salvador.

    You - or anyone - is welcome to check the stats of further players. Actually it's 72 players.

    Yes, that would be very good additional information. You might want to have a go at it? Or anyone?

    I met problems with excel in ordering/sorting the calculated results a few days back. The calculations are fine but sorting does not work.

    What is the best way to count the points by the way?

    A further player I think had good stats in some categories was Svensson of Sweden.

    I think Bobby Moore's stats fit the impression given by the reports/highlights etc - top defender for chances created and 2nd for interceptions in 1966 and 100% tackle success in 1970 (for the former tournament he is remembered for his assists and passes, while in the latter his tackle on Jairzinho is the number 1 highlight - I do remember an impressive higher speed tackle in the 1966 Final though IIRC).

    Meanwhile Paolo Rossi's stats might seem surprising, as he has a better shots on target rate in 1978 than 1982 but more chances created per minute in 1982 (one in just over 40 minutes as opposed to just under 50). I say they might seem surprising as the highlights/reports would indicate that he was more mobile and involved in creating chances in 1978 but more prolific in 1982 - however looking further at the stats that does still come accross as though he had a 90% shots on target rate in 1978, in 1982 of all his shots on target only one was saved, and in 1978 his cross success rate is better as well as the number of successful crosses and duels won (per minute and overall number). Chances created only refers to the final pass or 'key passes' if I understand correctly anyway, but in 1978 he did get a couple of nice assists.

    pele about 4 foul per game 1970..23 total....this is very intresting....however i dont understand why he never got a yellow card...bertini ( a dirty player)committed 19 fouls and he didnt get a yellow card too, this is very strange to me if we put in perspective some of his actions... (example) foul against grabowski in semifinal.....jairzinho committed 12 fouls no yellow card...

    gerd müller has committed a extremly low 4 fouls 1970 and he got 2 yellow cards ...thats very weired...

    Do not forget that WC70 marked out the very first time FIFA AGREED to use Yellow card to penalize some dirty acts with INTENTION (like sliding in tackle, kicking to player feet from behind, elbowing ....) this yellow card rules only became more serious in WC90 and beyond.

    If you can help to find clips showing how Muller got those YC will be helpful

    Can you maybe post the top 5/10 fouls committed and suffered information for those 100+ names at 66 and 77 WC (maybe more WCs)? Doesn't have to be included in the index but would be good info despite the 'iffy' nature of the stat.

    Pretty impressive display by Beckenbauer in many areas of the game. Apparently he has the 5th highest number of passes ever made in one single WC (and by far the highest one for a man playing in the defense) as well as the 4th highest number of recoveries. And he was excellent in duels and shooting accuracy as well. Two players in one, really.

    Yes, I accidentally looked at 1970WC I think (where he had 26) or the page did not load properly. What is the way to copy paste the link? o_O

    A stat like this is always tricky because you can view it in both ways (which I certainly will in the case of 1974WC with biased refs like Tschenscher) but I found it for the following teams (fouls won, conceded, yellow):

    I did not include hosts Mexico but included Sweden instead (who ended ninth in official ranking).


    Name (games); fouls won; conceded; yellow

    Brazil (6 games): 103; 96; 4
    England (4 games): 71; 72; 2
    Germany (6 games): 121; 100; 5
    Italy (6 games): 112; 111; 5
    Peru (4 games): 46; 47; 1
    Uruguay (6 games): 126; 139; 9
    USSR (4 games): 85; 108; 8
    Sweden (3 games): 49; 46; 2


    Yellow cards per game:
    USSR 2.00
    Uruguay 1.50
    Italy 0.83
    Germany 0.83
    Brazil 0.67
    Sweden 0.67
    England 0.50
    Peru 0.25

    Fouls won per game:
    USSR 21.25
    Uruguay 21.00
    Germany 20.16
    Italy 18.66
    England 17.75
    Brazil 17.16
    Sweden 16.33
    Peru 11.50

    Fouls conceded per game:
    USSR 27.00
    Uruguay 23.17
    Italy 18.50
    England 18.00
    Germany 16.67
    Brazil 16.00
    Sweden 15.33
    Peru 11.75


    Uruguay and USSR committed significantly more (registered) fouls as they gained (139 vs 126 and 108 vs 85). Germany won significantly more fouls as the infractions they made (121 won vs 100 registered infractions).
    The other five sides have more or less a 1:1 ratio.

    As addition to the 1974WC:

    The 1974 Ballon d'Or was controversial I have articles here in front of me who state that English, German and Italian journalists strongly disagreed with the third Ballon d'Or of Cruyff (who eclipsed Di Stefano with this third win).
    Something similar happened in 1971 when Cruyff won his first with a then record margin. The Italian voter said literally: "It does not take away that some players are a lot better as him like Valentino Mazzola and Franz Beckenbauer."

    I don't know the complete list for 1974 Ballon d'Or but I know that the English, German and Italian representative did not vote for Cruijff. Austria did not vote for him too but the Belgian, Portuguese and Danish journalist thought otherwise.

    I do know it for 1971 and 1973 edition:

    In 1971 the following nations had Cruijff not at first place: Spain, Italy, Austria, Greece, West-Germany, Finland and England. Finland had him not in the top five and Italy voted him on fifth place.

    In 1973 the following had him not on first place: West-Germany, Austria, Sweden, Turkey, Yugoslavia, Italy and Denmark. Furthermore, Bulgaria and England had him not among the first five.

    There are also a few quotes where Cruijff criticizes the journalists on the occasions when he won. Typical. He also said: "All this attention is not good for me. I do not feel comfortable in a smoking at ceremonies like this. Maybe I had retired if I had won the final. This is very difficult. Losing the final was also difficult, especially with everything around it not related to the essence of the game."


    The Press Agencies and other organizations were in 1974 divided as well for the overall sportsman of the year award. In most lists Muhammed Ali ranked on top with a footballer among the first three. Reuters (UK) and Associated Press (USA) had Beckenbauer ahead of Cruijff (IIRC but I could not find this so quick again, the BBC sports personality award had Beckenbauer nominated and not Cruijff; Pelé won the award in 1970 but in 1974 Muhammed Ali won).
    French agency AFP had Cruijff ahead of Beckenbauer (after a vote), just like the Austrian, Italian, Polish, Belgian and Spanish one.

    I have revised the part on the 1966 World Cup after adding every player that at least played in two games (of any participating nation).

    Goalkeepers are now also added.

    That is excellent, to apply the same standard to all World Cups. Applying thresholds is very good too although it'll always be a bit arbitrary. What is a too high threshold and what is too low? Is 5 crosses too low? Is 30 duels too high? No definite answer exists although it is theoretically possible to look at the total distribution and then decide a cut-off point. I'd say the most important thing is that all standards are applied to all World Cups. So, not a minimum of five shots in one WC and a minimum of 2 or 10 in another one.

    I also see it has some consequences for the outcome. The first one seemed very intuitive (with Eusebio, Beckenbauer, Charlton etc. at top; as usual), the final lists of this one is more surprising.

    There are three categories which I added to the original opta categories: "successful passes", "successful passes per minute" and "chances created per xy minutes".

    I think I'll drop the first two categories. The players that played most passes will also very likely lead in "most successful passes" and "successful passes per minute", so that their points total will get unnecessarily bloated by these two additional "passes" categories. "Chances created per xy minutes" however makes sense.

    The category "successful passes per minute" actually brought considerably different results compared to "passes" so I left that. However I deducted all points of "most successful passes" as it was basically the same as "most passes".

    Thus new points totals for 1966 and 1974.

    The range of passing accuracy is generally between 70 and 90 % (maybe even with a peak between 75 and 85% - I read a study that grossly puts it at 80% for the dominant sides) so with such a small range "most passes" and "most successful passes" will indeed overlap to a big extent - also because the ones with the most game played will generally end on top.
    This is of course not the case for "passes per minute" because not everyone played the same amount of games or minutes (btw, not everyone had the same caliber of opponents, tactics and team mates too but that is an irresolvable problem).
    The same will happen if also other categories become converted to per game or per minute. Outcomes will also vary if the thresholds are placed higher or lower (minimum of 2 shots or 10 does make a difference just as 5 or 15/20 crosses).

    It;s always fun to discuss of Stats likes passing shots and tackles or duels won ... however for such a short tournament it becomes a bit misleading especially if the "threshold" you proposed is small.
    Also each category should be weighed differently per position.

    - Shooting: (for FW and AM )
    in average a FW would have minimum 3 shots per game or 20+ shots per WC to be counted as acceptable meaningful. For MF the average would be around 10-15/7games.
    2, or 4 shots are more like lucky rolling dice if we do not have time to re-watch the game for such player.

    Opta missed out the so called Goals conversion ratio = goals/shots total or shots on target - Again this is misleading if the total number of shots is less than 10

    - Passing: (for MF, AM )
    For MF/AM, 30-40 pass per game or 200+ per WC would be a good number.
    For FW 15-25 pass or 100+
    successful pass % did NOT account for "risky pass" like thru pass, chip over or long pass /crossing ... So it's easier for a DM or CB with more successful passing (more often simple square pass or forward/reverse pass) than a Winger or AM (with more vision/risky ones) . Here we can see how many Xavi/Messi/Alonso could rack up their number in a game for that - but besides some good thru pass of Messi/Xavi, most are square pass or laying off pass to a team mate 3,4 meters a way! Ronaldinho/Zidane had much less successful pass for they performed more risky passes and which only be appreciated during watching - not aftermath stats

    Excellent job Greg,

    howeer my comment is that some % and total points did not mean much if we do not put the number of games next to them) Like some might get high % but they only played 1 good game, or in other hand some players got low points for they played less game.
