And you're point is?

{Ed025's Note - obviously that leeds were the better side..

10 Feb 2019 19:39:53
Unfortunately it’s not a boxing match. If it were we’d be 30 points clear at the top!

10 Feb 2019 19:49:39
How the hell did we win more aerial duels against that bunch of freaks?

10 Feb 2019 20:24:33
Like I said to Gilesy, after his post about having been at the game, my point is that we continue to dominate teams, even with a poor first half, yet there remains so much negativity. We could’ve, possibly should’ve, had four, against the tightest defence in the division. If we continue picking up points in games that some deem to be “poor performances”, we ARE going up! And Thanks Ed. Your summary was perfect!

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

Those stats are typical of us week in week out. Our problem is that if you looked at the goal difference figures our average is being caught up quite quickly. We have an increasingly longstanding problem turning possession into goals. Roofe is no Depauy, Gayle or Sharp. Bamford or Brown to the rescue me hopes.

10 Feb 2019 21:07:41
Very unfair on Roofe he’s had a great season.

10 Feb 2019 21:25:41
Don't get me wrong, he has had a good season, but with the service he has had, he should have had more. If the aforenamed three players had the service he has, they would be miles in front.

10 Feb 2019 21:32:57
Only one stat truely counts.

11 Feb 2019 10:59:53
Yep notts. 1-1.
All the rest is there to identify what needs work on.
And I’m just beginning to think it may be our chances to goals ratio.
Should I call Bielsa and tell him because it’s been going on all season and it ain’t improving.
Just because we have rubbish loads of possession doesn’t mean we can miss more.

11 Feb 2019 11:17:03
We have struggle most of the season to put teams to the sword as our ratio of chances made to goals scored is low. The difference earlier on in the season was that our defence was miserly. Now we have to score at least two goals to have a chance of winning a game as we inevitably concede (and usually first) .

11 Feb 2019 11:28:46
We do not really have a goal threat for all the possession we have and chances we create. Look at the top two scorers for most of the top six and they are 10 goals ahead of our top two. Not just down to Roofe we need some one else to help out up front, hopefully Bamford or Browne can make a difference. Roofe not prolific and if we had some one else with 13 or 14 goals would have made this a lot easier. Thought Klich might have been it but inconsistent in front of goal. One of them needs to start letting loose instead of looking for the next pass.

11 Feb 2019 10:24:00
Ed I'm sure we will take great comfort in the stats if we don't make the Premier league.

{Ed025's Note - he was just pointing out that you actually had best part of that game wex, nothing wrong with that mate and its better than some of the doom and gloom merchants who are looking for failure..

11 Feb 2019 11:37:52

Yes, give him a ring, but not Sheds!

Do you speak Spanish though?


11 Feb 2019 13:22:00
Tewit, to be fair to Bielsa, I think he knows what the problem is in Spanish and English, I’m sure he’s even trying to sort it!

11 Feb 2019 14:11:41
From that it seems that actually the shots on target is a bigger issue. Boro has 3 out of twelve and we could only manage 4 out of 21. If we start hitting the target we wold surely score more goals. Maybe we are already shooting from too far out therefore giving away possession rather than awaiting a better chance to strike. Having more shots inst the way to address that.

11 Feb 2019 12:25:19
Ed I think everyone knows we dominate games we don't need a list of stats to tell us that we are lacking in the goals department.

{Ed025's Note - i think you are being harsh wex, you are playing well and thats all he was trying to say imo mate..

I’m not biting, I’m not biting.
