  7. It seems I should focus more on players stats :D If I'll have the time, I'll also post the final 23 men squads stats. That's if scaryice doesn't post them first. :)

    I have some info in an Excel file, but I parsed it in a MSSQL DB.

    If anyone wants the Excel file, use the e-mail address from my profile.
