We are made of Glass…

Thanks to @7amKickOff for this,going to prove my rant about the fragility of our squad:

When I was going to school 60% was an F. The following players have all averaged less than 60% of their possible Premier League matches:

Walcott (58%) — 53% if you count his first season where he played 0 of 19 games. Eboue (58%). van Persie (57%). Vermaelen (55%).

Denilson (53%). Diaby (52%). Rosicky (50%). Djourou (31%). Those 8 players average a playing rate of 52% of their available games played.

If the average player can be expected to play in 30 of the 38 Premier League games (78% rate) then these players are off by 26%.
