    Super saints 10 year of success

    In the 10 years in the Top Division so far we have played 368 games. We have conceded 456 goals loosing on average 1.239 goals per game. Of goals against we lost 217 in the first half and 239 in the second. Breaking that down further, goals against in the first 30 minutes = 142 , 31.14%, 2nd 30 minutes, goals against 133, 29.17%, 3rd 30 minutes, goals against 181, 39.69%. This clearly shows that it is the last third of games where we loose most goals. However, the worst period overall is the last 10 minutes plus added time at the end of the second half where we have lost 81 goals or 17.77% of all goals against. An interesting example of this was a game at Parkhead in season 2010 /11 where we held Celtic nil nil at 90 minutes only to loose 2 nil to 2 added time goals. 1-10 minutes, against 44 = 9.65% of total. 11-20, against 50 = 10.96% 21-30, against 48 = 10.53% 31-40, against 50 = 10.96% 41-45, against 21 = 4.6% First half added time, goals against 4 = 0.88% 46-50, against 12 = 2.63% 51-60, against 46 = 10.09% 61-70, against 54 = 11.84% 71-80, against 46 = 10.09% 81-90, against 62 = 13.6% 2nd half added time, against 19 = 4.17% Figures show that goals lost is spread pretty evenly across all 10 minute periods except the last 10 minutes plus added time. How many of these goals in the last 10 minutes were match winners I don't know. One really interesting fact is our strongest period defence wise across the 10 years has been added time at the end of the first half. We have only conceded 4 goals in first half added time and remarkably they were all in one season, 2010/11. We also concede relatively few goals in the first 5 minutes after half time, only 12 in total and 3 each of those were in seasons 2009/10 and 2016/17. Our defensive record over the 10 years has been fantastic. A superb effort from the team which has a major bearing on our success.

    You might be surprised at the stats. Difficult to argue that loosing an early goal is always difficult to recover from and some goals scored by the opposition in the last 10 minutes are sometimes just consolation goals. Actually statistically the first 10 minutes is where we concede the least % of goals in any 10 minute slot apart from combining the 5 minutes either side of half time. Will post some stats on the affect of the early away goal in due course but in the meantime stats to follow on goals against. Makes interesting reading.

    In the 10 years since we have been in the Top Division we have played up to and including this weekend 368 games. In those 368 games we have scored a total of 426 goals, giving an average across all games of 1.167 goals per game. So when is the best time to go for a pie without missing a goal? First half goals = 182, 42.7% of the total. Second half goals 244 = 57.3% of the total. Breaking this down further: First 30 minutes, goals = 106, 24.88% of the total, Second 30 minutes, goals = 141, 33.10% of the total, Third 30 minutes, goals 179, 42.02% of the total. Breaking this down further: Minutes 1- 10 , goals 33, 7.74% of total. Minutes 11-20 , goals 34, 7.98% of total. Minutes 21 - 30 , goals 39, 9.15% of total. Minutes 31 - 40 , goals 51 , 11.97% of the total. Minutes 41 - 45 , goals 20 , 4.69% of the total . First half added time , goals 5 , 1.17% of the total. Minutes 46 - 50 , goals 20 , 4.69% of the total. Minutes 51 - 60 , goals 45 , 10.56% of the total. Minutes 61 - 70 , goals 42 , 9.85% of the total. Minutes 71 - 80 , goals 64 , 15.02% of the total. Minutes 81 - 90 , goals 57 , 13.38% of the total. Second half added time , goals 16 , 3.75% of the total. Over 368 games of football we have managed just 5 goals in first half injury time, so looks like that is the safest time to join the pie que! No idea how these percentages compare to other teams but clearly shows that we score more as the game goes on scoring 32.05% or very close to one third of all goals in the last 20 minutes plus second half added time. Just goes to show how we keep playing and trying all the way through the 90 minutes, getting stronger as the game wears on.

    In the 10 years we have been in the top Division in a row we have hit the net 425 times, with the goals shared amongst 69 players plus some O.G's. Some great memories from reading the list of scorers. Very difficult to pick a favourite, possibly for me it was Kanes goal at Aberdeen when we won 1 nil to qualify again for Europe. The goals mean nothing without a solid defence which thankfully we have had and a fantastic team spirit. There's nothing like the feeling when the saintee's score, looking forward to many more. Top of the list with 48 is Maclean followed by 43 from Craig. Craig would possibly be top if he had not taken some time off at Easter Road. 48 MacLean, 43 Craig, 33 Davidson, 22 May, 17 Wotherspoon, 17 O'Halloran, 14 Sandaza, 14 Cummins, 13 MacKay,13 Kane, 13 Swanson, 12 Anderson, 12 Hasselbaink, 10 Sheridan, 9 Graham, 8 Alston, 7 Samuel, 7 Vine, 6 MacDonald, 5 Deuchar, 5 Kennedy, 5 Shaughnessy, 4 McMillan, 4 Millar, 4 Parkin, 4 Tade, 3 Grainger, 3 Haber, 3 Kerr, 3 Lappin, 3 Morris, 3 F Wright, 3 Croft,. 2 Each, Gartland, Hardie, Johnstone, Morais, Robertson, Scobbie, Watt. 1 each, Adams, Brown, Clancy, Callachan, Cregg, Caddis, Duberry, C.Davidson, Easton, Fisher, Fallon, Foster, Johansson, Jackson,, McFadden, Miller, McCracken, Moon, Milne, Paton, Sutton, Sheerin, Scougall, Taylor, Thomson, Tanser, Watson, Willock, D Wright Own Goals 12.

    Most points gained from another team in a season has been 10. 10 from Hearts in 2016/17 and 10 from Hamilton in seasons 2010/11 and 2017/18. We have one 100% record, that was against Kilie in season 2012/13 where we took 9 points out of 9. We also have several 9 out of 12 point tallys v Hearts in 2011/12, Dufc 2013/14, Motherwell in 2015/16, Thistle 2016/17. With 100% records so far this season against St Mirrren, Hamilton, Dundee and Livi there is a great opportunity to take maximum points from all or some of these teams. Our strength over the 10 years has been to consistently take points from all teams each year. Apart from 3 seasons against Celtic and one against Rangers the only other time we failed to get any points from another team was Partick Thistle in season 2015/16. Remarkable performance over a 10 year period.

    Wee correction on this Dundee points right but years should be 6 as they were up in 2012/13 for 1 year as well as their current run of 5 in a row.

    I remember his brother Jinky who was dropped from the 1974 world Cup squad for being drunk by our very own Willie Ormond. Jinky was pretty small as well but didn't stop him playing over 500 games for Celtic.
