  1. League 1 & League 2 thread 2017/2018

    I think it's more about appointing a premier league official, rather than changing it because of the guy's name. Couldn't stop laughing when I read it though

  4. Ben or Kasper most to blame

    100% of the goals we've conceded, in my opinion, have been because of the ball going in the net
  5. Rumble's Slightly Positive Expected Goals Ramble

    It's funny what you say about being hung up one side or the other - that's a bit like what modern society is like. You can't have a neutral position, you have to be massively for or totally opposed. A bit like when Ranieri was sacked - most City fans were sad when it happened, but some would accept the decision as being best for the club going forward. But the outcry from the anti-sacking media almost forces you to defend your position to such an extent that it makes you feel like you wanted him hung drawn and quartered. Anyway back on topic, relying entirely on stats is of course a fool's gambit. Wasn't there some stat in the 80s going round that said that one in every nine shots taken resulted in a goal? So teams were encouraged to just shoot on sight. Doesn't take a genius to work out why that didn't work. Point being that stats can certainly act as an aid, but you shouldn't rely on them entirely. Glad you clarified about the fisting aspect - wouldn't want to cause any confusion.
  6. Rumble's Slightly Positive Expected Goals Ramble

    I didn't see your post before I added mine re: Burnley Palace game. Burnley may well have shut up shop, but the fact that Palace created roughly two goals worth of chances perhaps shows that Burnley didn't do a very good job of it, and, as you say, Palace deserved to win it. What Burnley can take away from that is that shutting up shop is all well and good, but maybe they need to generate more going forward in games like that in the future. Perhaps think about why their counter attacks weren't working in that particular game.
  7. Rumble's Slightly Positive Expected Goals Ramble

    I'm quite a fan of the expected goal metric as it happens. I know that some people don't like it, but it is not just like they pluck the figures out of thin air. I don't think it would have come to the fore in the media as it has recently if there was not an accurate statistical basis for it. I think the best way to look at it is as a 'chances created' statistic. Somebody might say that Leicester had two good chances on Saturday (penalty and Slimani one-on-one). But that is just somebody's opinion. XG converts that opinion into a factual statistic. I've not seen the Palace game the other day, but I do know that Palace had 23 shots to Burnley's four, was it? Now it might well be the case that Palace dominated the game, but considering that only four of their shots were on target, it may also be the case that they had a lot of pot shots from range. If you introduce the XG angle, that might show that Palace didn't actually create a lot of good goal scoring opportunities, despite having so many shots. (Disclaimer - as I say I've not seen the game, and Palace might have deserved to win, I'm just talking hypotheticals.) With all that in mind, it surely reflects well on us that we are 8th in expected goals scored considering the calibre of opponent we've played so far. 17th in expected goals against is perhaps par for the course.
  8. Iborra injured

    Another title coming back to the KP then!
  9. Smaller Pitch

    I'd love to see Lloyd Dyer with DRS - think he could overtake Alonso this year
  10. Arsenal.. Away: pre match thread...

    Are you talking about the one at Anfield? That was Mike Jones.
  11. The ones who got away

    From what I recall he was pretty great - seemed a complete step up in that division. Maybe I'm wrong though.
  12. Wasyl on the rampage...

    It's been posted before but I certainly don't get tired of seeing it, so I assume other people won't!
  13. Zieler gone

    He was a free transfer signing wasn't he?

  15. The totally unofficial 2016-17 Season Review

    Perhaps don't bother with January in that case! Seriously though I'm enjoying these.
