Union player stat infographic for October

Dan Stover and Jim Prestifilippo present their infographic of Philadelphia Union player stats for October’s games and the 2013 season.



  1. Shots on Frame%: How can Fernandes be 1/1 in October, but 0/5 for the year?

  2. Wow…Carroll’s Defensive Player Rating and Possession Differential as the Union’s best definitely argues for him to be included in next years’ plan. The possession differential in particular is off the charts higher than everyone else fighting for second place.
    +/- Rating. McInerney seems to have climbed over that last month after consistently getting subbed out before we let in mid-late second half goals. Surprised that Casey is so negative though. Still not sold on the importance of this stat.
    Thanks for contributing guys. Seems like a lot of work, but always fun to look at!

    • We should move on from Carroll, IMO. No one doubts his defensive skills. It’s his ability to link the defense to the attack that is lacking. We need to give Okugo the reins at CDM because his passing ability in the midfield can greatly improve the strength of our offense.

      • Agreed. He is still a valuable player. might be more suited next year to come off the bench to lock down a game or as depth when necessary – provided we pick up a CB that it MLS ready.
