Most likely essentially the most well-known instance of that is the ‘power’ class, which has been ruled through Wycombe Wanderers’ Adebayo Akinfenwa lately in spite of simplest having a 65 total.
In different phrases, you do not essentially want to have a persistently excellent card at the sport to change into primary in a definite area of interest – and tempo regularly positive factors equivalent consideration as a result of this.
