4 shots on target in 195 mins.....


Recommended Posts

Have we really come to accept this shite?

4 shots in the game, yet again. I watch football to be entertained, Dean Holden‘s football isn’t entertaining me and the results aren’t good enough for the brand to be accepted.

Fed up of paying £10 for this ******* shite every single week.

Now as we established following the Huddersfield game, there are those of us that do not believe stats matter. However, those who live in the real world know that they do.

We have mustered 4 shots on target in our last two games against 2 sides that the rest of the league have made look poor (both bottom half outfits). This is down to the way we play, not the personnel.

Despite the continued bleating about our injuries, we have a side that should be performing so much better. We have a keeper widely regarded as the best in the league, £28m worth of centre-halves, over 400 games worth of Championship experience at full back, an established international midfielder, who shines for his country, a £4m creative midfielder, and a £10m strikeforce. Why are we unable to produce meaningful attacks on the opposition goal week on week??!!

1-0 down at a Derby side who have 2 wins all season, a rookie manager, and we looked abysmal.

Chasing the game and removes Palmer and Wells, 5 minutes after changing the shape, and moving them around, only to change it again. I despair.

The lad Edwards looks bright and hungry though. Cannot wait to see that coached out of him as he doubles back and plays 10 yard balls back to his full-back repeatedly in a few weeks time.

We are poor. Thats the reality.

Last three games: 11 shots for, 53 against.

Got to be seriously dense to come out with that haven’t you, especially when our results are only keeping us in mid table.

Our performances always catch up with us, every season.

We’d be in a relegation scrap without Bentley.

You just have to laugh at that stat ***** knows what it's going to look like after Brentford😵

If it goes to statistical form it'll be carnage.

What worries me is this:

This season we've averaged 8.81 shots, 3.04 of which are on target, per game. 

At the same time, on average, we score a goal after every 8.5 shots, or every 2.9 shots on target.

We're almost, nearly at a point where you can say that in our average game we should not realistically expect to score a goal.

It's averages so a pinch of salt is needed, but it's bad...and it's now worse than last season as well.

Do you really need figures , figures and stats to work out our performances are awful ?

I think that’s in reference to the last match where many countered the result was the only stat that mattered.

Wycombe went to Brentford scored 2 in the first half and created numerous chances in the first half. A team rock bottom. We haven’t been creating nothing. Have Wycombe got a better side than us or a better Manager. 

Considering they’re 24 points behind us I’d probably say neither

Swansea had 6 over their last 2 games- yet scored 4 goals and gained 4 points.

Rising to 8 in 3 games and from those, came 6 goals and in that little run 7 points- yet they're 2nd!

@TomThumb84 That works both ways- take Huddersfield for example- for what they create and put in, their results surely fall below their performance level.

Against us!! Only us! They do not have 27 attempts on goal every week! What are you basing your assumption of Huddersfields performance v results ratio on? The game against us? If so you have proven my point in a really strange way.

27 is an extreme example but if we are relatively efficent in shots to goals, they are perhaps not!

They seem to have a good amount of possession and shots- I am basing it on statistical analysis, more widely than just vs us.

Huddersfield average 11.23 shots per game this season.

On average we allow 14.19.

By both metrics they had a field day against us.

Huddersfield are marginally more wasteful than us. 0.09 goals/shot to our 0.11.

Always had them down as a bit more attacking and entertaining than that, but I'll go with the stats- clearly vs us it was an outlier- but otoh Swansea 8 shots on target, 7 pts, 6 goals in 3 games.

Do you mean 0.09? We don't seem especially wasteful, we create so little we surely are one of the more clinical sides in that sense.

Yes 0.09.

We're not wasteful. Top 6 for converting shots to goals. It's the bit leading up to that where the problem lies.
