It's just like watching Madrid...

Interesting piece by Neil Ashton in the Daily Mail today looking at Opta stats for long balls, defined as passes over 25 yards.

Maybe it is all perception, as Big Sam says... Ashton also nails the myth that Hammers spend all their time at training rehearsing long balls. Click on the link to read.
