Looking at the BBC stats ...

Post by ZENITH R » Sat Sep 30, 2017 12:11 pm

Suggests there is something wrong that needs tweaking - not a major overhaul.

Last night:

QPR 25 shots - 4 on target
Fulham 12 shots - 2 on target

Add in corners:

QPR 10
Fulham 2

This suggests we are not taking our chances, or making the most of the opportunities that come our way.

That gets fixed on the training ground.

Looking at the stats from other games this season many tell a similar story.

Every game we have lost apart from Brentford in the Micky Mouse cup and Norwich away we have lost by the odd goal. So far no tonkings, a fair bit of bad luck - injuries, deflected goals etc. We are a quarter of the way through the season (crikey where did that go!) Time to take stock - use the international break to fix what needs to be fixed.

These players could get us to upper mid table come May, or if certain things are not addressed could take us down. Mr Holloway, now is a good time to look at making the first one happen and ensuring the second doesn't.

Olly likes to experiment, and as Smithies did so well when he came up for that late, late corner that I wouldn't be surprised if he tried him up front in the next game :wink:

We certainly had a lot of the play as the figures you quote suggest. I'm away at the moment and for the first time ever watched the match on Sky. A miserable experience with the commentator treating it as a kiddies game and praising Foulhamlet to the high heavens. Yes, we were rough and ready but I though there was enough there to work on.

I think it's going to take more than a bit of work on the training ground to turn this team into good finishers. Although i would give Sylla and Washington a run together.

On the basis of Friday's match, its target practice and PACE!

Pace you can't teach you either have it or you don't.

Shooting practice again I bet you our strikers smash them in for fun in training, I bet you half the team score for fun in training, come 3pm on a sat it's a different story.

My point was, we have no pace especially in defence and up front.

Yes those stats tell us what we all know - we have a Div 2 frontline.
