The Inaccuracy of Official Game Stats

We’ve received questions from a few of our page followers about why we no longer display game statistics. The reason is that we, the admins along with some fans, have found the statistics provided by game officials to be consistently inaccurate. As statistics and math enthusiasts, our admin team started noticing discrepancies a few weeks ago that just didn’t make sense. Here are just two examples:

In one game, our ball possession at halftime was reported as 20%, but by the end of the game, it was stated as 12%. This implies that in the second half, our possession would have been 4%, which is unrealistic. Even minimal passing by the goalkeeper to one defender would exceed 4% possession.

In our last game against Don Bosco, the halftime stats showed we had zero shots, yet the highlights from the same source clearly displayed a shot, as you can see in the video below.

We understand that gathering and reporting accurate statistics can be challenging, and we appreciate the effort that goes into it. However, these consistent inaccuracies mean the stats lose any value. This doesn’t change the fact that our team has had a tough season and we acknowledge that other teams have performed way better, but it highlights the unreliability of the provided statistics. Therefore, we have decided to stop displaying them until they become reliable.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support. 😀
