Premier League naughty boys
With the Premier League only seven games old, GMS pick out the most carded players
Points, goals scored, assists – all the traditional ways to decide to dish out glory points in the Premier League are old hat for GMS.
We’ve been desensitised by things like violent video games and explicit lyrics, while we live in an age of the anti-hero.
GMS need something more edgy these days and we think it is time the players that live on the edge of the rules get a bit of recognition – they’re all been very naughty boys.
Premier League football in England has come a long way in the last few years, but there is still a residue of the hard-tackling culture that the game on these shores became known for.
A certain number of players still love to put the odd boot in, lash out and are adept at the tactical foul, more than ready to take the resulting card for the good of the team.
We have had a little nose around the statistics and decided to award one point for a yellow card and three points for a red card.
