1– The number of pounds that Danny Guthrie paid for his haircut. #fightwithalawnmower

33– The number of seconds Glen Whelan takes to pick out a pass. #midfieldengine

123– The number of attempted dribbles by Michael Kightly #winger

24– The number of miles ran by Jonathan Walters. #marathonman

0– The number of hands Adam Federici seemed to have. #calamity
