Stats (In a Nutshell)

  • “At the end of the day, it’s about winning. I want to be productive out there, of course. But I care about the score more than what I care about stats.”- Shaun Livingston (American- Basketballer)
  • “Life is a big and complex game. It’s the largest open world game known to date. We all begin with different starting stats, and we’re placed into a wide range of environments that can either give us advantages or disadvantages.”- Mark Manson (American- Author)

Stats (Nitty Gritty)

  • “I keep track of my blog stats, Facebook subs, my Amazon rank, Twitter followers, Facebook likes per posts, my chess ranking. I get stressed when they all don’t go up.”- James Altucher (American- Author)
  • “The stats suggest that I’m not a dasher. It doesn’t mean I can’t play the shots, but when you find a method in four-day and Test cricket that works for you, you stick with it.”- Alastair Cook (English- Cricketer)

Stats (Lateral Thinking)

  • “I was always the ‘boring’ type. I was into the stats and spending hours and hours studying them. I was always more a manager than a player.”- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Football- Coach)
  • “I can’t quote stats from another decade. I’ve got friends that can do that. But I am a huge sports fan. In fact, I enjoy all sports and when I enjoy a game for five minutes, I’m in it for the whole thing. Plus, I do have some teams I loyally follow- Rob Riggle (American- Actor)

Stats (Final Thoughts)

  • “You can look at stats as much as you want- and we do – but you can have too much of it. You can spend too much time looking at computer rather than looking at the real thing which is out there on the pitch. I still think that being a good judge of players is the most important thing.”- Harry Redknapp (English- Former Coach)
