Not sure if he is Chelsea owned still. But I know they wanted money + a loan player for beg. So possibly how he's playing for them.

so if he played okay he also would have scored or something? i can see an argument for a draw maybe, though the first goal is as much on the defenders as him.

yeah agree re: the kid. he was real bad. classic narrative situation. if they lose bilic gets blasted for playing a naive kid at DM. they got lucky this time.

Definitely gutted that we only beat last years 5th place 1-0. What a bad start for us. Wish we had played West Ham.
arsenal won on xG and you lost on it. so congrats on being the champions of variance.

i'm quite sure you don't believe in analytics though, kind of like you don't believe in any players from outside the precious majesty of the united kingdom.

Bad result but mostly lol varaince. I'd be much more concerned about the performance if i were a chelsea/mun fan they were both far more dire.

Lallana is the least physical player in the pl, a stiff breeze pushes him off the ball

How do you know that this isn't simply a product of what happens when you're down most of the game?

Also, **** goalkeeping isn't variance. It's **** goalkeeping.

Re: English Football 2015/16

VG still owned by Chelsea, now upping his value at Stoke, where he will do it on windy nights.

Dominating.

Also pretty sure Stoke is not Stoke anymore now Hughes refit is complete.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Shocked we didn't replace keeper. Should have given begovic all the money and a promise of first choice football.

Hopefully br doesn't wait too long to get firmino on in the 2H. Not sold on him but gotta be better than lallana

Re: English Football 2015/16

Can't really blame mignolet for those two terrible passes

We seem very passive overall, no press whatsoever

yes, great gks will allow fewer goals than expected and great finishers will score more than their xG. does it make the tool useless? not even close.

Exactly, let's see a graph for all of Arsenal's shots and dominance up to the first goal cause I remember zero. Obviously once it goes to 2-0 WHU are parking the bus.

He's pathetic, glad to see him getting minutes ahead of Markovic.

You may recall him talking about killing himself, I hope he's ok, and is back asap because he provides plenty of lol Arsenal.

I'm not saying the tool is useless. It's not a perfect tool either obviously? I'm simply questioning how good it is in this specific situation.

**** goalkeeping isn't variance either.
