  1. I know plenty will see this as irrelevance but on stats we are hugely outperforming where we should be this season. When looking into football statistically the buzz term now is 'xpg' (expected goals.) Calculated through high powered models/robots it suggests how many goals we should of actually scored based on many number of things (where chances were scored/missed, % chance of them chances being converted historically, possesion, shots on/off target etc). Off memory this data suggests we should of only had half the amount of goals now (actually 15th in the exg league) and also far less points. Many of you will say stats are pointless etc, and to an extent I agree. But this model/statistic is used by most if not all bookmakers to correctly price football matches. Its not the whole truth but its interesting that according to these numbers we aren't actually performing very well. I will try and find the exact data and post later.
  2. If you can pin the whole game down that battle then I think you need to take another look. We were literally outplayed all over the pitch.
  3. Yet I'd love to see that 'one way' at Chelsea.
  4. I'm not really arguing the selection. I'm arguing that he was happy for his side to show zero attacking intent and sit off the best team in the league as if we were scared. And your point is guesswork. At least with Pedro and Zappa we would of had more energy.
  5. Instead we will just lose 1-0 and not even give it a go. There is something called BALANCE
  6. Why buy zappacosta if you don't use him? Why keep bats if you don't trust him. Stop making excuses. Pedro/Willian didn't play in the week and decided against using fresh legs
  7. Agreed. Seeing a lot about morata going. Off. We were getting ouplayed/ letting them come on to us from minute 1. After his comments mideeek about winning in the right manner. He has shown a big contradticiton here. Happy to get points playing ultra defensively.
  8. We showed them too much respect in general. Lack of pressing etc. Im just saying what Ferdinand said in regards to 3 cbs. I personally don't mind the formation of you don't allow your wing backs to be pinned back which we did.
  9. The fact that we setup so defensively. Showed so much respect and don't once try and press them high up the field. As Ferdinand just said playing 3 at the back is a mistake (up against Jesus) because your a man down everywhere else already. So many errors. Don't defend the indefensible. If we have it a good go and still got beaten by the better team you'd have a point. But conte set the precedent from minute one and didn't make the right substitutions/tactical changes to make any sort of difference
  10. All of a sudden we look a little bit dangerous because we've started pressing? Who would of thought.
  11. It's not the result or the lack of quality that really gets me. Its the attitude of mindset from minute 1. We was filing back into our half from kick off. I just cannot understand that. Letting them control the game. Tactically we had no answer. Baffling approach. Thought that was over after Jose. This is Jose and more defensively. Unreal. Roman will not be happy
  12. We was struggling in every department from minute 1. If this kicked in after an hour, you may have a point. After 5 mins? No. Tactically and technically outplayed
  13. Even 1-0 down the defence are still so deep. If you have to go long and squeeze the game in there half.
  14. Ah yeah that's the difference. Jesus
