The Top of the Table is an enviable spot to be in the NASL. But the NASL standings are not the only place where the NY Cosmos are currently leading the league. Lets take a look at some of the numbers from your NY Cosmos.
There’s been alot that has been said about the Cosmos entering the league this year. Whether good or bad, there is one thing that the rest of the league cannot deny or dispute. The New York fans are coming out to see their Cosmos and in my opinion this can only be a positive thing for the league when you compare what the Cosmos average vs other teams. Here’s a look at the average home attendance around the league for the fall 2013 season. The numbers do not lie and they are hardly even close.
Kyle Reynish is leading all NASL goalies this fall season with 5 clean sheets. Credit the Cosmos defense that has had a huge say in this as they have been dominant on defense. Something to note in this category, the person with the second most clean sheets is Carolina Railhawks goalie Akira Fitgerald who has four clean sheets. Ironically enough, the Cosmos put four goals past Fitzgerald this past Saturday – just saying!
SCORING LEADERS –
Only the Tampa Bay Rowdies (24) have scored more goals than the Cosmos (18) this fall. Here’s a look at the scoring leaders for the NY Cosmos so far this year:
Only Kyle Reynish and Marcos Senna have played full regulation time in all 11 games to date. Here’s a look at how the team service time looks:
-By all means there has been alot of good things to say when you look at the numbers these days. But how about those not so pretty numbers – like yellow cards? Leading the Cosmos with the dubious distinction of most yellow cards this season so far is Ayoze with 4! Hunter Freeman is right behind him with 3. The team has collected 23 yellow cards collectively this fall season.
-How dominant was this past Saturday’s performance by the Cosmos? Not only did the Cosmos win by a score of 4-0 but they destroyed the Railhawks in the shots on goal category: 11-3!
-For all the dominance that the Cosmos displayed on Saturday night, it was their lowest attended game of the year with only 5,409 fans showing up to the game. That amount is still more than an Atlanta sold out stadium!Until next time: clap, clap, clap-clap-clap, clap-clap-clap-clap COSMOS!
