  1. This is when football games are won or lost
  2. https://www.bristolrovers.co.uk/news/2021/july/evening-of-queen-tour-memorial-stadium/
  3. Spraying Bristol Rovers, this week, has to be the stupidest time to ever do it
  4. Couldn’t get a shot on target vs us in our first friendly/game in months and months, no surprise.
  5. I don't know anything about him but I trust the process
  6. and Palmer closing down his options
  7. Solid, few creative passes, 'good' as far as pre seasons go..
  8. Atkinson got it stuck under his feet then, and booted it in to touch.. something Taylor Moore wouldn't have done, and would've probably lost it
  9. Anyone know if it's always this poor or just connection problems at the moment?
  10. They’re really not, I’m a computer scientist myself(ish), their code isn’t even open source which I find odd. For 1 single goal there are hundreds of variables, let alone say 10,000 goals for them to try to compute what is universally expected. There’s no science with a hard S, so to say they know exactly what a xG is.. just isn’t that believable. I’d be interested to see how they work it out.
  11. And they create the algorithm, so they decide essentially
  12. xG can only be as accurate as the data guys that create the algorithm, who are they to say what should be a goal or not
  13. Exeter stream their games for free anyway, so I think we didn't really have a say in that matter. I'd assume it's a mixed bag, I think Villa is the only game where we might be able to take anything away from that re squad selection.
  14. “Do you ask me what you should regard as especially to be avoided? I say, crowds; for as yet you cannot trust yourself to them with safety… To consort with the crowd is harmful; there is no person who does not make some vice attractive to us, or stamp it upon us, or taint us unconsciously therewith. Certainly, the greater the mob with which we mingle, the greater the danger… Much harm is done by a single case of indulgence or greed; the familiar friend, if he be luxurious, weakens and softens us imperceptibly; the neighbor, if he be rich, rouses our covetousness; the companion, if he be slanderous, rubs off some of his rust upon us, even though we be spotless and sincere. What then do you think the effect will be on character, when the world at large assaults it! You must either imitate or loathe the world.”
  15. The whole “I won’t be forced into anything” argument falls apart when it’s spoken by people working a 9-5 for 60 years of their life.
