Football statistics/general analysis thread

:joy:

One of the drums I’ve been banging for a while now. This isn’t even real football as far as I’m concerned. No team who plays like this will ever seriously challenge for anything of meaning. And it’s 18 months in. This is clearly what his style is.

All in all we finished about where we should according to XG over the whole season, actually I think we may have ranked about 6th ?

It’s still not good enough though, we need massive improvement next season.

Are those stats being measured against players in the French league only, or across Europe out of curiosity?

xP is already used by windows what a gutter

Not enough info (that I can access).

I understand what they’re trying to do with xG I just think it’s bollocks. Pretty much you’re trying to improve your points score by making new signings but this sounds like a by product of a scouting process to me, not a metric you set out to achieve.
