    The pressures one we've always ranked near bottom in fairness, 25.2% and 26.5% in the 2 seasons before Bruce

    Nice stats in here detailing our strategy, if you can call it that (Field tilt is useful in revealing which side is more dominant in matches. Rather than simply looking at the average possession statistics, field tilt provides a clearer picture of where that possession is. It’s not always about simply keeping the ball, it’s about getting into the areas that matter.)
  3. Journalists like Delaney (remember him, he was everywhere summer 2020!) critique UAE's comparable human rights and their owner, 'their' being Man City. It should never affect the outcome of the test because it doesn't accommodate for that, but it's only right for me to at least bring it up in the media as a side point, knowing it shouldn't affect the O+D. Where does this line stop though I can bring up how money has 'ruined' modern football and the Sky deals, the breakaway that formed the PL with the-then "big 5" wanting further control. A lot wrong with football and I think it's
  4. The papers weren't wrong when it became "stalled"... Friday marks 1 year since that PIF-led statement to pull out was released. If I'm honest it's time to put this takeover, and all takeovers, on the back burner. Watch the jurisdiction hearing if it's your thing, but don't rest your hopes on a takeover disrupting the establishment passing. Hope just kills you, Newcastle's always about that. Just had to be the only wealth fund with ties to a state that didn't do enough to prevent (and allegedly facilitated) PL piracy. Not forgetting the human rights argument, which doesn

This makes it easier to schedule hearings during t
  7. Yeah this shows what I was thinking https://dataviz.theanalyst.com/season-reviews/2020/?competition_id=8&season_id=2020 36 chance creating carries. He's great at dribbling and getting past players, but compared to the rest of the players (it's still top 20 in the division) he creates fewer chances. Naturally because he played 1568 minutes last season - 18 carries per 90 3rd best in the league, mental
  8. We have one of Europe's best dribblers, a steal of a signing for the price we paid. https://theanalyst.com/eu/2021/03/advanced-metrics-top-five-european-leagues/ Was just looking at some stats from last season, 8.7 take on attempts which is 2nd only to Neymar, and is successful 63% of the time. For a player attempting around 9 take-ons per match - moving with the ball past an opponent - it's pretty much best in Europe. Adam Ounas while at Crotone averaged 7 take-ons with a 70% success rate which is the only success rate higher I can compare to. Messi last season: 7.8 wi

    Passes per defensive action (PPDA and alternatively OPPDA) tells you how active the team is in pressing; the number of passes you allow the opposition on average before you make a defensive action like a press or tackle. OPPDA refers to the number of passes you make on average before the opposition makes a defensive action. 2017/18 - 13.38 PPDA (15th), 8.47 OPPDA (16th) 2018/19 - 13.99 PPDA (16th), 9.40 OPPDA (18th) 2019/20 - 19.00 PPDA (20th, 19th was Sheffield Utd with 13.71...), 7.55 OPPDA (20th) 2020/21 - 18.00 PPDA (20th), 8.27 OPPDA (18th) Notice

    Although Rafa left at the end of his contract which he fully served, with 5 and a half weeks before the season started.
