Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

Not sure the comparisons with Dale Jennings and Aaron Tshibola are relatable. Jennings was signed as a 18yo with 32 professional games played at league 1, so signed for £0.5-1.7m (depending on source, but peanuts for Bayern) based off potential that didn't materialise (with some knee ligament injuri...

Re: Pedro Mendes

This one is cropping up again - whether he gets enough points to get a permit now though is another question. Due to his age we might be able to get one for “outstanding talent” but it doesn’t seem very likely that it would be successful. Mendes is 21 and has not played a full international appeara...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (h) sponsored by an utter shambles

May have missed this, but presume Meite cant be subbed off as we have made 3 batches of subs. Thought at the time Esteves coming on a minute after Semedo was odd- clearly should have been double sub given the 5 sub rule.

Edit - Mick and Tim now clocked on

Snowflake Royal That was not the time to take someone on from Ejaria with a massive hole behind him to break into with numbers.


sounds familiar


High risk, high reward player in 'risk doesn't always pay off' shocker.

Bristol Paul Olise needs to get in the game


Would much rather he had quiet games on TV and tore it up when only we were watching :?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by Jack Witham

Squad depth is basically ok. Missing 4 big players in Yiadom, Swift, Puscas and Meite and still pretty strong I’m not sure I agree with that. We don’t have any players we can throw on off the bench which give you confidence they can go and get you that win. I think with everyone fully fit, only fou...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by Jack Witham

Pulis' HT changes made it much harder to make chances - we didn't really create a huge amount in the second half for all our possession apart from 4 penalty shouts. Aluko/Baldock really don't offer a plan B off the bench, and Esteves didn't offer as much as hoped. TBH not too mad - second consecutiv...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by Jack Witham

Equalizer came from a FK won by Richards. Given so much of our attacking threat has come from set pieces this season, getting forward and winning free kicks is an underappreciated part of his game.

He wins 2.4 free kicks/90, only behind Olise (2.7) and Ejaria (2.6)

Disappointed at his lack of celebration.

Phenomenal goal line clearance.

Great play by Richards to beat his man and get a good shot away.

We are knocking on the door - be patient

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by Jack Witham

Don’t think I’ve ever seen him use his right foot. He’s basically the Reading Robben. But better. To be fair to Ian, its only taken Olise's 2,700 minutes over 43 appearances to clock his very obvious left footedness :oops: And on cue a right foot shot :oops: :lol: :lol: his 4th right footed shot of...

No Oh, ok. Right foot bias. I assumed he was right footed and just noticed the weaker second one was from his left foot. Don’t think I’ve ever seen him use his right foot.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

You can’t just dismiss a stat because you don’t like what it’s saying, it’s been proven to be fairly accurate in reflecting how the team is doing in terms of chances. As long as you understand what it shows and it’s limitations then you can use that stat the way it’s supposed to be used. You obviou...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Seems odd the xg doesn't use the striker's quality, and form. I remember a LONG sequence where Noel Hunt and Shane Long were partners up-front and one or both of them scored virtually every game... or Blackman's purple patch... and some "striker" eg Baldock are not prolific, but others (l...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Some good discourse here around the merits of xG as a statistic. Good to see most are correctly understanding its limited explanatory power, and key caveats (gamestate and variance). At no point has anyone (competent) claimed it's the be all and end all. A couple of applied points so humour me here,...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

I said defenders in more direct sides. Generally whenever I've looked over the years what I described is what I saw. That's why I said it. Look at our season so far stats. Cabral is second bottom. Baldock bottom. Swift is towards the bottom, but on 77%, how much higher must his PA have been against...

I don't think I'd be looking to Citeh for stats comparisons to us. :lol: Weak response. I actually think its a perfect example - if the best-in-the-world equivalent of Swifts role also had a low % completion (relative to his teammates) despite putting on a MOTM performance, why should we expect Swi...
