  1. Great post @frastheowl I noticed Sky Sports briefly mentioned Xg after the Spurs v Leicester game yesterday. It's good to see expected goals is creeping in as it is way better indication of how a game went than just Shots on Target etc.
  2. Loved this book. The corner statistic really surprised me. It opens up your mind to how the game is played.
  3. I thought this too. I don't think he actually meant he is in the process of trying to sell but was more of an emotional reaction. "I'll sell if you want me to go" sort of thing. Unfortunately the press have run with this.
  4. Cherry picking stats at its finest. Do we not count points for draws any more? 14 of those were drawn and would total 53 points across the 46 games. Whilst not great reading it certainly isn't as bad as the stat is trying to make out and would have comfortably stayed up based on that last season.
  5. I would have personally gone for Fletcher rather than Joao. He would have defended from the front and his experience may have helped us.
  6. And that I would agree with, my response was to the OP comment of "tho i think he will swap out Baker following that car crash of a header". That would be very harsh.
  7. So you drop a young player who's playing his first season in the senior side for one wonky header?! That's madness. Way to ruin his confidence.
  8. That Forestieri quick freekick though, brilliant! Shame the goal was ruled out.
  9. I think opinions will vary depending on the type of fan you are. If you are a season ticket holder or go to lots of games then entertainment and style might be more important than simply getting a result in a boring fashion. If however you cannot get to games as often then the results might be all you care about.
  10. It's way too difficult to tell who will perform and who won't at this stage. The transfer window will give an indication of who means business and who is going to stagnate.
  11. I think he'll leave. He has hit a great bit of form which will now abruptly end as the season closes. Does he really want to stick around when the likes of Hooper, Forestieri, Fletcher, Rhodes, Joao and possibly Winnall could all be fit and firing for the start of next season. He'd more than likely be back to playing the role he has been over the last few seasons and probably wants some first team action in his final few years. Good luck to him if he does move on.
  12. I'm not sure why people keep mentioning the average age of the squad. I believe Derby have a higher average age than us and are doing very well this season. Age is not much of an issue if the squad is full of quality.
