  Goal difference - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In sports such as ice hockey and soccer, goal difference (that is, goals scored minus goals conceded) is often the first tiebreaker used to rank teams which finish a league competition with an equal number of points.
Goal average is a different scheme that predated goal difference.
Goal average is also used as the tiebreaker in Australian rules football where it is referred to as "percentage".

 Longo's field goal the difference for NBH: 10/ 25/ 2003
Jeff Longo's 22-yard field goal with 8:10 left to play snapped a 7-7 tie and Steve Almeida stopped a Dartmouth drive with a quarterback sack with just over two minutes left as the Whalers held on to beat the Indians, 10-7, at Paul Walsh Field last night.
One of his biggest appeared to come just three plays before Longo's winning field goal when he leaped high in the air, reached out with one hand and appeared to come down in bounds in the back of the end zone.
Following Longo's tie-breaking field goal, Dartmouth took over at its own 35 with 8:11 to play and led by the running of Brendon Zexter and Kyle Audette eventually moved to a first down at the Whalers' 20 with just over four minutes left.

Quite frankly if any team loses 100 goals in their first 5 games and can only manage to muster up 1-0 victories against lower sides, whicst other teams are trouncing on the 5-0: then yeah utd should get relegated.
Goals would mean a lot more then and a goal conceded when you are 4 goals up could be very costly and not just a consolation goal.
Goals scored can only be used as a tie breaker or the system is easily abused in a money orientated cynical world.

Goal setting is an intellectual process, while goal achievement uses a different part of our minds to reach our objectives.
Another reason that people fail to reach their goals or to set meaningful goals is that they look at their current results, conditions or situations and allow them to dictate their future.
Goal achievers are productive people who have decided what they want and made a decision to get it without violating the rights of others.

This is primarily because the idea that achieving the goals without addressing the underlying causes of poverty and inequality is open to question.
Its targets assume a causal relationship between ends and means, and indicators are based on the notion that poverty reduction is an additive process ignoring structural issues that compound poverty and inequality.

Entering the game in the Pankritio Stadium on the island of Crete, Greece, with a 0-1-1, 1 Point record, Costa Rica needed both a victory of their own and a favourable result in the other Group D match between Iraq and Morocco to claim a quarterfinal spot.
This crucial fourth goal gave Costa Rica a superior goals-scored record of +4 compared to Morocco’s +3, with the teams otherwise tied on points (4 each), goal difference (0 each) and in their own previous Group D encounter (0:0).
An own goal by Portugal’s number 6, Fernando Meira, made the score 2:2 and, even though Alvaro Saborio’s 71st minute strike gave Costa Rica a 3:2 lead, when Morocco also went ahead in their game on 77 minutes, it was looking like the Ticos would be eliminated with an inferior goal difference.
