Leaked by Auba today. No idea how this is calculated, and he could be playing a trick on us all for all I know. But looks legit.
If its right then we were all very wrong about Socrates (suppose his acceleration could still be slow)

Surprised to read that Sokratis is up there.

I've seen nothing in our pre-season friendly and league matches so far to suggest Sokratis is our third fastest player. You're right, must be an acceleration thing.

Not sure what the figures are? Seconds? Distance? What is percentages about?



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

I think acceleration is a good shout. I remember a few years ago it was reported that Aubameyang was quicker than Usain Bolt over 50 metres or something.

Whatever this is for, it is BS or totally useless.

Why?

Because Xhaka is higher than Guendouzi, Elneny and Torreira.

Xhaka turns like an 18-wheeler and accelerates like an oil tanker.

With the ball most of them can hardly walk.

When the ball is nearly out of play and they have to run two yards to keep it in most are arthritic

Same here. I am more surprised that Xhaka is actually faster than some players on the roster. (Sm22)



We don't have anybody with 20 goals in the league, so that is a handicap - Arsene Wenger

Top speed in metres per second. Not really surprised about sokratis. Taller, heavier players can get up to higher top speeds. I remember the same stats at the world Cup a few years ago and mertesacker came out the 5th fastest player at the tournament or something.

It's kind of meaningless because they are football players, not sprinters

Percentage is probably how far was this speed from the players record top speed.

Anyone who'd have seen Sokratis for more than a few games would know he's fast!

The reviews on Sokratis from people who watched him in Germany mentioned that he had pace, but that it was fading a bit.

I think that the percentage refers to how much of the measured run was at the individual's top speed. Meaning that Torreira is slow but tries hard at running tests!
