Great example why stats aren't as important in judging football as actually watching the game.

But with modern statistics he does get credit for a successful cross, an important pass, and a chance created.

I see your point, but the reality is that statistics are getting better and better at quantifying value - and this player’s actions are more capably reflected. After all, if his teammates fuck it all up, statistically he’d still be given some credit for his great play.

In the end, you still need to see players with your own eyes. But only Totti Totti can watch every minute of every football match in the entire world. Stats help the rest of us quantify what we haven’t/can’t see.
