Just for the sake of realism and balance, approximately how many own goals are scored in football? I can't find any statistics on the web. Or how many are scored in SS1, if anyone has kept a record of that? I think SS1 has it fairly well balanced right?

The problem with real life football is what constitutes an own goal has changed in recent years. Nowadays a lot of clear own goals are given to the attacking player because their effort was simply on target, ignoring the reality that their effort wouldn't have beaten the keeper without the deflection.

With that in mind "confirmed" own goals are down on say 20 years ago but ss1 seems to have it fairly low anyway so it probably aligns better with right now anyway.

Indeed, the term isn't exactly clear anyway. Most people will define an own-goal as a shot that wasn't on target which is deflected in, or an obvious own goal where the attacking player isn't even involved (i.e you just smash it into your own net by accident). I just tweaked it until it looked right, about 1 or 2 per set of results looks about right (i.e 1 per 15 matches or so). I think that's similar to SS1.
