Not bad considering we played the 2nd, 4th, and 5th best teams in those games.

Plus, having 45 shots at goal against 3 of the Top 5 is immense; creating chances was our biggest problem last season under two of the most negative managerís in our history, so this is a huge breath of fresh air and gives me optimism for next season.

I'm just saying that's a poor conversion rate. I'm not unhappy we are getting shots. Just saying we clearly need to improve on finishing. 1:15 isn't good enough
Are we there yet?

They werenít 45 on target.

They were just 45 shots on goal, including speculative ones.

Shots on goal are shots on target, no? That's at least how I interpreted it. If it is 45 shots total then I would change my stance

No, shots on target are included in total shots, though.

We have had 45 total shots over the course of our last three home games, that have been against 3 of the Top 5. Itís pretty good, especially because one of our main problems during our bad run was a paucity of attempts on goal.

Shots on target can also be very misleading.

For example, you could have four feeble attempts on goal, real 1mph pea-rollers, that end up safely at the keepers feet in the centre of the goal, and they would count as 4 shots on target.

Or you could produce four amazing moves where the outcome is four stinging shots that all rattle the woodwork and go out for a goal-kick. These would not be counted as shots on target.

They would, however, be counted as total shots/shots.

S'why xg is popular.

Better indicator of performance than shots on goal or possession share.

That vid doesnít do it justice. Best one yet today in my opinion.

Derby was obviously boss, but so much better without the pause before z cars

I've missed the last two as the stewards and police by me have ruined it, with the help of the club.

In absolutely no other circumstance are people allowed to tell you which way to look simply because they're wearing hi viz than at a football match. Simply because football fans are allowed to be treated like animals of you feel like it.

Away fans shouting abuse, and shouting offensive chants about Merseyside, allowed to just do as they please. But heaven forbid you dare turn around. And wo betide if you utter any remarks about the fair cities of Manchester or London.

Its got to the point where I'm not being told which way to face and will end up being removed simply for saying I should be allowed, in a public place, to look wherever I want.

Requesting a move for next season because I can do without a criminal record just for looking behind me twice in an hour.
