  1. Kendrick doesn't work for The Athletic. Evans does.
  2. Sites that charge you to read them and clickbait don't really go together, mate. It's the sites that rely on ad revenue that use clickbait.
  3. Not sure where to bring this up, but bringing it up here after we switched to 4 at the back during the loss. Went and looked back at our actual goals scored per game and allowed, as well as points per match when we played with 4 at the back compared to when we switched to 3. I then did the same thing with xGoals, xGoals Against and xPoints just to see how they differed (Premier League matches only). What the numbers suggest is that our offense performs roughly the same with either, but our defense has been much worse with 3 at the back. Yet we've gotten better results as far as points! Of course, we must also consider the context that the reason we switched to three was to make up for the loss of McGinn. That said, I'm not sure McGinn alone explains the vast difference in goals allowed. 4 AT THE BACK Goals per game: 1.25 Goals allowed per game: 1.80 Points per match: 0.90 xGoals per game: 1.28 xGoals allowed per game: 2.01 xPoints per match: 0.94 3 AT THE BACK Goals per game: 1.29 Goals allowed per game: 2.29 Points per match: 1.0 xGoals per game: 1.10 xGoals allowed per game: 2.61 xPoints per match: 0.51 Final thoughts: The numbers suggest to me that 4 at the back is a better shape for us as we've performed better defensively, and our biggest problem right now is conceding goals and shaky play in the back. Also, the expected goal numbers suggest that while we've gotten better results with 3 at the back, we've gotten quite lucky doing so.
  4. I can safely say that I have never seen a team finish a match with an xG as low as 0.09. It was a performance so lifeless it's almost impressive.
  5. Needs to start Saturday or #SUSOOUT #SMITHOUT #PURSLOWOUT

    I think it's a combination of the level of talent and what they're being told to do. Our backline tries to play the ball at their feet far too often looking for a pass to start the play rather than just hoofing the ball 50 yards. When the pass is there, make it. When it's not, get the god damn ball out of there.
  7. Lost track of his mark so many times throughout the game and just doesn't have the pace to make up for his mental lapses. There could be a Premier League player in there somewhere, but it just hasn't made itself evident yet. There's a reason we went to three at the back. He's the reason.
  8. The mistake at the end was unforgivable, but it was hardly the only one he made today. There's a reason he hasn't been playing, and all the reasons were on display today. Even with the goal.
  9. Going back to the El Ghazi-Zaha debate. Here's a look at how they've played this season.
  10. Well, if they're feeling too much pressure, they could always do some nitrous. Really calms the nerves!

    Ritchie De Laet would agree!
  12. If we're going shopping for wingers in Germany I'd rather have Rashica than Bailey.
  13. I really don't think Robinson is ready for this level.
