Must have had a deflection.

could have been just looked again in slow mo and still not fully clear looks like it might have hit the keeper but that would have surely been an own goal

Didn't Middlesbrough have 1 shot in the whole match once while Arsenal had 25 and Middlesbrough won 1-0.

maybe i don't know its not the fact of so many shots etc just in order to score it should equal to a shot on target

I would say its either:

A) Classed as off target and deflected in.

B) Classed as blocked but gone in.

C) Not classed as a shot - Did it just hit him? or was he trying to pass it?

A) if it was this and the striker shot off target and clipped the keeper and went in surley own goal right?? but in saying that the shot was on target by there player

B) maybe but there was no one in front of the player shoting and goalkeeper (which might have hit not sure tho) and the goal

C) no the player looked like he was volleying it in goal not trying to pass it or anything

thanks for your help on this tho ;)

It does happen in real life, Im an Arsenal fan and we have lost a few games where teams have scored more goals than had shots on target, like it says above there are numerous reasons why it wont of been counted as a shot but I would put it down to a freak result and not worry about it

I seem to remember West Ham having a similar result a few seasons ago against Arsenal. Arsenal had close to 30 shots, while West Ham had one, and scored it.

It could have been a fluke

something in the commentary like 'looks like he didnt mean that' might have been mentioned (if you rewatch the highlights it's something you can check for on any of the options)

hate it when these happen against me .... so frustrating :p

Given that you often get more goals than clear cut chances, I'd speculate that SoT doesn't include the goals scored.

Last year in FM 09, I lost a League Cup final 1-0 after extra time and the opposition did not have one attempt on goal, far less on target after scoring with a penalty ( which apparantly didnt count as an attempt ). To be fair, it was a dire game and I only had about 5-6 attempts:(

Would be nice to know how the stats are really calculated. If a CCC doesn't have to be on target it's no wonder there are lots of them...

The stats aren't always correct. I've just played a game and my striker had a shot straight at the keeper who saved it. Clicked on the match stats and it said I'd had 0 shots on target!

It happens..... Ive had countless shots at teams, and sometimes, ive had 20-30 shots at them with say 15-20 on target, and they've had one shot, and gone in, either by a flukey deflection, or a cross/shot

If something goes in off the woodwork, is that a goal without it being on target?

Sometimes it doesn't pick up when shots actually happen. I have match stats up when I'm watching the game, and when there's a clear shot, on goal or otherwise, it sometimes doesn't register it. That's probably what happened.

Either that the 'volley' was meant as a pull back or something...

if it was already going in it wont be counted as an own goal, but still blocked maybe

All it has to do is bounce off a player

Scholes Vs Ac Milan - his goal was not a shot on target, it bounced off his standing leg.

frank lampard's majority of goals are off-target deflections :p

(before any of you lot take this too seriously, he does get some deflections, but he also gets goals on target of his own accord too, this is simple humour. i have to explain this otherwise there is the good chance some of you will take it far more seriously than it needs to be)
