That and the rate of penalties are the most odd things that have happened to Serie A to make goal tallies so high. Why does Italy not procude defenders anymore? Or is it that modern football which doesn't use much defensive midfielders anymore is exposing the defenders more?
There are many reasons but the first is surely the tactical plans and in particular the search for defenders who can make a pass over defenders who can actually defend. We are looking for defenders who can pass properly, very often we look for them in foreign countries and the result is that the forwards are often free to shoot, a thing which would have hardly happened in the 80s.

Good thread, Toni (y)

There is this guy, Martin Kamburov, who will soon turn 40, and about to become the all-time Bulgo league highest goalscorer (13 or so goals short of it):

71078



After he achieves this goal I can see him easily score 10+ goals per season for some Verona or Torino in the next 2 or three years. His game-to-goal ratio would definitely be times better than the current Verona striikers' one.
