Anyone know what the final tally is for minutes Buffon went without letting in a goal in Serie A. I calculated it at 760 minutes or so.

If anyone knows, let me know. Thanks :)

760 minutes is only 12 and 2/3 hours of football

That's not a lot! :cool:

--just kidding, I'm surprised Buffon didn't concede for that long considering how blur he looks :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

Go take a look at the stats, then try to accuse me of being biased again.
I think the issue here is that one feels that 760 mintues is a bit more than "decent".

Like I said, in the history of football, a 760 minute shutout streak is not exceptional.

Well, maybe it's just me but I would even go so far as to say that 760 minutes without conceding is good.
I just pointed out that, IMO, the wording is a tad under-valuing his performance. Decent, to me, means average. And I don't care what you have to say or what stats you can put forward, 760 minutes is more than average.

760 minutes is 8 matches and thats a lot in modern football, when you think our defence is not water tight or we are not an ultra defensive team it is very impressive

say what you will, but it doesn't change the fact that 760 minutes of shutout football will not be remembered come the end of the season.
