I am always a fan of percentages and in this league small percentages are often the difference.
For example as a team if we improved out defensive record by 5%, then improved our goals scored by 5%, theoretically that would be a 10% improvement across the board.
This 10% improvement would result in more points in the league table. I am not saying a 10% increase in points, but generally an improvement.
I just wonder how much of a better team we would have been with Lee, Hutch, Fessi and Hooper available all season. These absentees surely has made our team performances drop this season, leading to inconsistency.
We have played mediocre at times too....I am not saying our season hasn't been without its worries. But you get the just of my idea.
Going into the last few games, I think our defensive record can do us good if we continue to play the way we have been.
