 Personally think it lies with Bentley for letting the weak shot/cross beat him at the near post..............but Hey! Who cares we won........Yaaaaaah!!

You did see it take a horrendous deflection off of Kalas to divert under him, right?! 🤦‍♂️ 
 

If anything it was a shocker Baker not lifting the clearance and firing it straight into the back of Bentley!

I thought at the time. If that had been us , I think Lansdown would of just paid it . Mainly to put his family’s minds at rest . Must be horrible for them with it dragging on 

Do tend to agree, there might have been a bit of tooing and froing but not for long.

Covid has helped it drag of course, but it must be awful for the family as you rightly say- I like to think that we would have done better than Cardiff and their current stance.

Lies, dam lies and statistics.  According to this we were played off the park.

too right! 🤣🤣🤣

I loves me stats and data, but from reading this analysis I get the impression it’s incredibly data driven, and not from watching the events themselves - in fact I’d say this has been written without watching the games, highlights at best.  I’ve noticed that Wyscout (my chosen source) has mis-mapped Weimann’s 2nd goal as being outside the box and flaws like that skew the data.

Cardiff’s pass network has lots of connections between Flint, Morrison and the wingbacks….and we all know from actually watching the game that we were happy for them to pass amongst themselves in their own half, but pressure the direct ball.  Therefore the analyst has completely missed that nuance of the Cardiff style.

When they write “Flint dominated defensively” it’s plain to see they didn’t watch the game.

In fact they were guilty of exactly what we have been often in the recent past, lots of passing between defenders without progressing the ball the to any great extent. As long as you concentrate and keep your shape it's not that difficult to defend 

Nigel won the tactical battle with Mick and is in fact a more sophisticated coach than his old school image might suggest I think.

Are you able to supply feedback to correcr the data through Wyscout?

I have.  

Good because these sort of things are quite important when so much is data driven these days.

When I was working in the casino industry, I got in with a group who were interested in horse racing, to the point of studying the form in the racing post etc.  Then we discovered that one of our punters wrote the synopsis you see under a horses name after a race...... e.g. "stayed on well, never closer"  and he admitted that in races with more than 6 horses, he often made it up because he couldn't watch them all!

From then on we just went by what the average punter does, colours/jockeys you like, apt or funny names. :)
