Hitting the Premier League woodwork creates one of the greatest sounds on a football field as it produces cheers or jeers depending on who you support and how the thudding of either the post or crossbar influences the outcome for your team.
In the second episode of ‘Stats Out Of Context’, join Duncan Alexander and Graham Bell as they explore the world of the goalposts, with a journey from the very early days of the sport through to the modern era and how hitting the Premier League woodwork has had an effect on the game we see today.
And, of course, there’s a Tony Yeboah mention.
