Luongo Makes The Top 10 Tacklers

Postby kingfisher » Tue Mar 14, 2017 12:09 pm

They have just produced a Top 10 of the Championship's best tacklers, and I guess it is no surprise to find Massimo Luongo in there (given his current form).

Here is a look at the top 10 in full...

Player Team Tackles won Appearances
Luke Ayling Leeds / Bristol C 78 36
Aaron Mooy Huddersfield 71 35
Greg Cunningham Preston 67 34
Conor Hourihane Aston Villa/Barnsley 64 34
Will Vaulks Rotherham 64 31
Stephen Warnock Wigan 64 37
Tom Clarke Preston 62 37
David Edwards Wolves 62 33
Massimo Luongo QPR 62 27
Maxime Colin Brentford 60 34

Two thoughts on this list: Firstly surprised that nobody from Fulham appears in it and, secondly, if you extrapolate Luongo's stats up to 37 appearances you could add another 20 to Tackles Won, making him the top player. Obviously stats are not facts as such, and he always suffers a dip after international duty, but it does indicate how good he has become!
