Someone has crunched the numbers on Bill O'Herlihy's Moyes stat, and it's fantastic

Our alternative title was: "So it turns out that David Moyes has super powers"

By now you've probably seen or heard the statistic that Bill O'Herlihy knocked out last night about David Moyes and his scouting skills, but in case you haven't we've got a lovely video for you just over here, so have a look.

As the person who uploaded the video rightly asked, can someone crunch the numbers on Bill's factoid (who got the stat from Daniel Harrid on the Guardian who was exaggerating a little bit) where he claimed that Moyes had seen over 39,000 players a total of five million times since he took over the reins at United.

Someone has, and had the stat been true it would mean that ol Davey boy is super human. The folks at Connemara Maths Academy (not ones to miss a trick for a bit of free publicity it must be said) worked out that Moyes would have needed to view a player 8000 times per second in order to get through that workload. And you thought you had a lot of work to do today...

Bill still claims it was a joke on his Twitter account. We believe you Bill, but no one else does.
