Happy last-day-of-February, Hoddlers! Jake is dead in a ditch somewhere, I dunno. So here’s a Community Hoddle of Coffee for all of you.
I’m not sure how many of you follow Carty Free on Twitter, but for those of you who do, during the match on Sunday, Punk (who was manning the Twitter machine) made a neat observation after Kane scored his third goal.
Harry Kane now has more Premier League hat tricks (4) than Didier Drogba (3) :D— Cartilage Free Capt. (@cartilagefree) February 26, 2017
Trolly? Sure. But still a pretty neat stat that is both factual and true, right? Well, it apparently got RT’d onto the wrong timeline, because shortly afterwards @cartilagefree’s mentions got inundated by Chelsea fans who were, well, pretty upset that 4 is greater than 3.
@cartilagefree One Man Has Won 4 PL Titles and A Champions League! And The Other one Has Won Nothing— Haroon (@LuizEdition) February 26, 2017
@cartilagefree I bet the man who's won four league titles and a champions league must be absolutely gutted and miserable.— Darth Conte (@DarthConte) February 26, 2017
And Harry Kane can't stop a civil war,does that count as well? https://t.co/HjVFmBDgV8— #BullsNation (@Emma_rafeal) February 26, 2017
@cartilagefree Haha don't even. This is why in many cases I'm anti stats.— Sam Thornton (@samthornton123) February 26, 2017
I’m not sure what exactly it is about this tweet that turned Chelsea fans into such snowflakes about basic math, especially considering that this was a nothing tweet that doesn’t disparage Drogba whatsoever. But I guess being told that your iconic striker was just eclipsed in some rando statistic is enough for you to start yelling TITLES TITLES TITLES SCOREBOARD MAD ONLINE CIVIL WAR RAAAAAAAR on the internet. Apparently our tweet has invalidated everything Drogba has ever done. Sorry not sorry.
Look, Didier Drogba is a fantastic player and by all accounts a good man. He’s rightfully considered a Chelsea legend. I actually like him.
He just doesn’t have as many Premier League hat tricks as Harry Kane. BURRRRRRRN.
So, we’re steering into the skid on this one, posting #drogbafacts. I’ll open up the Hoddle by just leaving this one here.
