    Are there more goals being scored these days?

    4 away wins, 2 home wins and 1-1 in the premier League.

    Throughout the football league today there was only one 0-0... Sheffield Wednesday v reading.

    I'm sure there used to be many more 0-0s.

    Without going through every season, which I have no inclination to do, I've been kind after a glass or two of ribena and looked at PL seasons going back every 5 years.

    End of season - goal per game average

    2019 2.81
    2014 2.77
    2009 2.48
    2004 2.66
    1999 2.52
    1994 2.59
    1989 2.53
    1984 2.71
    1979 2.63
    1974 2.40
    1969 2.63
    1934 3.30
    1929 3.65
    1924 2.47

    I got to 1969 and thought, sod this and went pre World War II when there were lots of goals.

    Yes, there might be more goals nowadays, but not by much. There might have been a dip in the 90s, but defences were hardly on top in the 20s and 30s.
