I read today that WBA top scorer is Charlie Austin with 9 but there are 2 with 7 etc. Goals are spread through the team so maybe we should cut Bamford some slack, he's got 12.
Charlie Austin only had 9 chances though, Bamford has had 500
ok, I made that up, sorry
Bamford has scored one in last ten games
I honestly believe Radz will sell us to someone with a lot more spare cash and I don't believe Bielsa will stay if we are promoted
There are lots of stats available. The ones above, re % on target, then there’s the expected goals which factors in the type of chance and likelihood to score from them. Bamford’s figures are poor in all of them. That’s just the goals thang, allround play to help the team is a different matter obviously and a bit less tangible.
Was listening today how Arsenal are keeping tabs on KP and Jose has said he’d like him to join Spurs next season. I just hope that release clause is massive
Loved the Orta comment in this article. Shows that it's not all about just buying players.
Lukic always seemed to get nutmegged for goals. Too gangly. Mervyn Day was better.
Just took a glimpse at my old friend the expected goals table. Yes it’s just a stat not saying it’s perfect but:
We’ve scored 48 goals this season... if we’d taken an average amount of our chances we’d have 64. Let that sink in. 16 goals down from what an averagely efficient side would do with our chances. Bamford should have 8 more, so the other 8 are spread across the team.
The table would make interesting reading if all sides scored the expected amount each game. We’d be miles clear of West Brom and Brentford. Stoke would be 4th! ... forest 17th!
Goes to show how efficiency at both ends of the pitch makes such a difference.
Re. efficiency I see our friend Erling Haaland has scored another couple tonight against PSG. That's 11 goals in 7 games now (and he was a sub for several of those games).
Is there such a thing as the expected goals conceded table? Would be interesting to see how we're doing in that compared to the rest.
His build up play is rubbish though
And he wanted to win the premier league with Leeds.
yeh the figs give both - the infogol table is just based on whether you deserved to win/lose any given game based on xg.
For the record we’ve conceded slightly fewer than expected. So interpret that as either our keeper has been better than the eye test suggests or the opposition have missed the target a fair bit against us too. Earlier in the season our xg against was better... it’s evened out.
Here’s a stat, our striker can’t score and our keeper can’t save. I didn’t have to look them up btw
That's consistent though
what % of times have you not looked that stat up though?
