Premiership Goalkeeper Minutes

My earlier posts on Goal Keeper statistics have prove to be wildly unpopular!  I have been informed that it is impossible to rank goalkeepers on the number of goals they have conceded, no, it is not, it is totally possible. It may well be pointless due to the number of variables involved but I suppose you could say that about any statistics used in Football.

So, here are even more numbers hot off the press.  This time I present to you a list of the minutes played by all goalkeepers in the Premier League (as at 29th January 2015), maybe a question will be asked on ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’ – these numbers could make you rich! I might update these in the future, probably at the end of the season.
