Be interesting to see a video of the 27 missed chances to see how good the service was from Harris

Is he even that fast?

 

Quicker than average, but imo he doesn't have the lightening pace of a JJ, Antonio etc.

Well I hadn’t seen that stat. With only three assists, that’s pretty wasteful from the people ahead. Who has been missing all these chances then, Nuhiu, Rhodes, Winnall and Forestieri, have only had peripheral roles, so maybe Fletcher?


Difference between scoring opportunities and genuine chances.

Indeed.

 

That stat is pretty meaningless unless you know how they tally it up.

 

We talking clear cut chances or mishmash of clear and half chances?

I for one am sick of seeing wingers that cut inside at SWFC. It's ok at the top level, but it's not for us.

the one thing that truly baffles me about Harris is the fact he's right footed yet he can cross, shoot and pass better with his left :ghoulguy:

By the way, I like Harris, and think that he’s a useful addition to the squad. For me though, I see no mileage in playing two out and out wingers, especially if it weakens the midfield

Thing is *Khads* doesn't usually cut inside.

 

He prefers to try and cross on his left rather than work it onto his right.

 

Nothing wrong with being able to use his left foot, but I swear there was a game recently where he was playing on the right and trying to cut in on his left :duntmatter:

Put 2 men on Harris when he gets the ball and he struggles. He needs help. If we got players closer to him they could either draw players away or give him a pass option. If he's out there on his own his only chance is to beat 2 men.

 

Give the guy half a yard and he can do his stuff unless the FB is faster than him. If that's the case forget it.

This is where you need a FB who can get beyond the wide player.

 

Help create an overload.

 

Fox is solid, but he is very much a defender first.

He's just not very good. 

 

Has his moments, but I'm bemused at how highly regarded he is by some on here. 

 

Decent cross in the first half for the Reach chance, but that was your lot today. 

 

A chance we should have scored from, our best opportunity of the game. Also broke to win a free-kick in a great position in the 2nd half which we did nothing from. 

 

It isn't much of a return from 60 minutes or so I grant you but he created our best chance of the game so what does that say about everyone else?

Not a great deal.

 

Are we saying that Harris is the best of a bad bunch?

A fair few of the chances he created in the first half of the season led to goals or good saves, when he had a striker worth his salt on the end of them. Yesterday he created an opportunity that attacking players thrive upon, Reach met it with a header that failed to trouble the keeper.

If reach scores, which he should do we could walk away with a 1-0 win thanks to a fine cross from Harris.

 

He has looked a bit burnt out recently, he hasn't played as much competitive football as he has done this season for a while. Got to remember that unless the team is set up to counter attack, wingers/wide midfielders need the team to be playing in the opposition half with intent in order to be effective regularly. A midfield of Bannan and Pelupessy do not provide that opportunity.

I saw something a couple of weeks ago which stated Harris had created the most scoring opportunities in the league( clear by 7 from the 2nd)

 

He’s become a bit predictable though and teams often double up

Where is this stat from? Have to admit it seems unlikely

Right footed, but prefers to play on the left, but is then weirdly even worse when he cuts in on his right instead of going down the line on his weaker foot.

 

Also on those chances created stats. Would love to compare the first 10 or so games to the next 10 or so games
