Re: English Football 2015-16

interesting thing for me in the chart frantic posted is that messi wont actually score many more goals than eg podolski given identical shooting circumstances

Re: English Football 2015-16

You can have Podolski, Vela and Nene. I'll take Suarez, Neymar, and Aguero to bang in the goals for the Eyetest XI. Fat xGFrank can even anchor your midfield. I'll take Hazard

Depends on ones line of work. Saturday's off for me are a complete luxury as that is usually my busiest day. I normally work Thursday and Friday nights too because they are also extremely busy

And LFC, take a breather mate, you're very much in the wrong here.

Yes clearly Levy should have bought Vela and Podolski - lol at any club who let those elite talents go.

Re: English Football 2015-16

How is it that tough to see that we're talking purely finishing. Not creating, not how much you score etc.
At purely finishing, podolski is clearly elite. He just wasn't great at anything else

if a different bloke missed an open goal from 6 yards out he'd be something like 0.99 goals below xG, because stevie wonder could've put it away

the first bloke has missed on 10 shots but is not doing as badly as the second bloke according to xG, despite the fact that the second bloke has only missed one shot.
Bit of a newb about this, but does it disproportionately reward the same guy when he binks a half way line shot?

I doubt it. How often are players shooting from half without the goalie being off? Never. So its not some .01% thing.

He scored a better goal a few weeks (I think) earlier, was very similar to the above.

Yup, I remember listening to that game on the radio and the commentator going nuts. Loved Yeboah
