Hi, Martin! Love the column! My question i about Barcelona. I know you focus on the Premier League, but I'm really curious about this one. When was the last time they didn't dominate posession? In the league or in the Champions League.

Hi Martin. As an avid Everton fan i was wondering who holds the record for being the lowest top premier league scorer for their team at the end of a season. I only ask as we are half way through February and Bainsey, Anichebe, and Osman are the top goal-scorers with 3 each and i can't see anyone going on a run right now. Cheers. Dan

Hi Martin. Love your column. I have a question for you since Arsenal failed to score at Bolton but hit the bar twice with Van Persie. How many times did each Premier League teams hit the woodwork this year? I know that Liverpool are top on this.

Hi Martin, got a question for you! As a Liverpool fan I've had to see statistics about how awful our conversion rate is for rather a while now. However, I can't help but wonder how good the chances are compared to other sides' ones. Is there a statistic that measures quality as well as quantity? A statistic for 'good chances created', perhaps, and if so, how do the Premier League sides compare in terms of amount created, and amount converted?

Hi Martin, following the 5-0 win at the weekend Tottenham have now scored seven goals against Newcastle this season. It has occurred to me that the first six were all assisted by Adebayor, and the seventh was scored by him. So my question is, has any player before Adebayor ever been involved in (ie assisted or scored) every single one of a teams goals against a particular side when they have scored seven or more. Many thanks, keep up the good work.

Hey martin! Thank you for this very informative column. I'm a very fond chelsea fan and think we have a good squad but feel like we have some rotten apples who aren't good enough to play for chelsea or at least haven't been good enough this season to play for chelsea. My question to you and the guys at opta is, how many goals has chelsea conceded this season due to mistakes, either losing the ball or being positioned badly or misplacing a pass, by bosingwa, malouda, or mereiles. Thank you for your help!

Hi Martin, Great Column. always love to read it! Love your commentary & your voice! United's Saturday's win against Liverpool saw them use none of their substitutes. Has this ever happened previously with United in Premier League era. Also has this ever happened in History of Premier League with all teams. Cheers!! Ravi

Hi Martin, fantastic column! Before Man United's two early second half goals against Liverpool last Saturday, I've noticed that United seemed to condede a lot of goals within 5-10 minutes of the restart this season, have you got any stats to back this up?

Hi Martin, interesting column as usual. Bolton Wanderers captain Kevin Davies has only started 15 of Bolton's 25 Premier League matches this season. My question is, what's the lowest number of games a Premier League captain has started in a premier league season (excluding when they are injured) and how does Kevin Davies compare? Thanks.
