Based on what stats are we the worst team defensively?

Did you not see bt sport leaky Leeds, it’s also been covered on sky basically we are the worst team defensively collectively on all the stats but it broke down like this

Goals from set plays 20th
Goals from headers 18
Goals from open play 19
First half goals 19

There was loads but it basically come down to every stat possibly we come in the bottom three often coming in worst

I said our defence was a joke from last year and the step up has really shown how bad we are

This is what makes me angry and while these stats stay the same relegation can never be too far away long to mid term and we will always under achieve

Style don’t win you points clean sheets do.

Surely the only stat that matters is if your in the bottom 3 in the table.

Too a degree of course richem but so many on this forum rate style highly which I don’t get at all.

Facts are we are the worst team defending and maybe one of worst in perm for long time. Now this time it don’t matter cps we score and create but second season syndrome is a thing (look at Sheff Utd who did better than us in first season in perm and now look at them)

Two things our bad defence means we will always underachieve and relegation is always possible because we are the worst at defending. this worries me.

Our defense is not the issue in terms of player ability, our system is.
We are regularly left with 3 defenders (KP plus two central defenders) as rest of team is so high up the field.
We put more stress on defensive players as a result.
Bielsa does need to play less aggressively if he wants us to concede less. That will mean we are less offensively effective which the best way to counter is to get better offensive players (let's hope! )

I agree Canada the style is an issue which I can understand and accept however the goals form pass backs to keeper and set plays ain’t helped

Same with not having a proper left back. Ain’t helped

Either way long term we need to improve.

Our defence personnel very well on a lot of stats, however, I would argue that they shouldn't have as much to do as they do and the blame for that lies with the midfield. They let the opposition through too many times meaning our defence has too much to do. The weak link in our team is the central midfield and has been for years. We need to address this ASAP if we want want take pressure off the defence and stop leaking goals.

Don't forget we haven't even had our supposedly best back four together yet. Plus we don't need to change anything straight away as WE'RE NOT GOING DOWN! Next season is all that matters from this point on. The rest of this season should be all about preparing for the next one.

Our defence ain’t done well on any stats in every area of goals concede they are 18 or lower which is awful

Part due to injuries
Part due to dm being no good at the d part of the dm role
No left back
Cooper not being good enough
Belisa attacking kamakazue style
Stupid mistakes
Awful at set plays

There is a lot t build on but we are good going forward but we do have to be honest improvement in defence is needed and belisa has to learn.
