At the end of last season, someone (MCofA I believe) posted a question: how many unique starting XI's did we play those season. He gave the chance for the commentariat to throw out their best wild ass guesses and the correct number revealed later. I guessed close, but not on it, there were many that were nowhere close and there were a couple that were a little high.
I took a few minutes this weekend to go through all of the P/L games, and have come up with the correct calculations.
1.) how many unique XI's did we use this season?
2.) how many unique XI's did we use this season under AVB?
3.) how many unique XI's did we use this season under Sherwood?
before I did this I was,expecting a high number due partly to the amount of injuries we had, and partly to the regime change we underwent in December. The number was still higher that anticipated.
I would love to see the same numbers from other clubs, especially Southampton to see how MoPo rotates his squad.
