Dummett's on, time for a 4 goal turnaround?

We've had nearly 20 managers in 22 stints in the meantime, and only one with any type of success. It's been a looong time.

Re: Everton in the media

Can't help thinking if we weren't FFP'd we'd have Richarlison and Gordon on the wings, Iwobi in between, and Digne at full back.

Ah what that might have been.

I've got big issues with these two kits on display. Do Spurs not have like a yellow or blue kit this season?
Absolutely woeful, barcodes understandable but those taupe haze (apparently) shirts are crap. Reminds me of those grey ones Alex Ferguson binned.

Re: Dyche

A picture of our scoring performance, relative to the number of goals actually scored. Comparison across the EPL.

From this we can see how critical it is that we turn the tide, and start taking more of the chances we actually get.

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Further 2 points deducted.

It has the whiff of clubs madly focussed on trying to comply with the current regulatory requirements to avoid penalty, and dismissively, "yeah, yeah whatever" to the changes. Kicking the can down the road. Then a year or so down the road "we agreed to what now?" I don't know how...

Re: Dyche

If you keep pumping the ball long to contests how can you expect to create good chances it’s all dependent on luck or mistakes from their defences like our last 3 goals all from luck and 2 goalkeepers errors We're almost topping the league in "Total Big chances missed". We're getting plen...

Re: Dyche

Interesting stats from the EPL's own statisticians: In less than 1/3rd of our games (10 of 31 games) was our Goals scored better than our Expected Goals . - of those we Won 7 , Drew 2 and Lost 1! When we've been clinical or luckier than average, even if only marginally, we've done very well. - 2/3rd...

Re: Dyche

Agree with your points, and there will always be outliers particularly given constants in particular variables (manager, style etc) but I just can't see how they explain the magnitude of the variance to a set of values. You would also expect to see some regression to the mean, except for the points ...

Re: Dyche

The way we are set up to play can influence our TOTAL xG (52), no argument there. But it can't really explain our huge VARIANCE TO xG. That is, why we're such a huge outlier with ACTUAL goals (only 32), when we should have scored 62% more if we were only half decent at finishing.

Re: Dyche

You can absolutely say that the way a manager has a team playing is having an impact on their xg performance. Dyche for instance was renowned for allowing lots and lots of very high quality shots against his Burnley team, but defending them with two cbs on the line and the goalie in the middle, so ...

Re: Dyche

I'm not sure the huge significance that Gary1878 mentioned is properly being understood here. If we were just an 'average' finishing side, we would have scored 52 goals rather than 32. That's 62.5% more goals than what we've currently scored - equates to MANY more points. Imagine if we were a 'good'...

Would he be looking for double? He could be transformstive for our midfield. And would he come back. His departure wasn't that smooth was it? Can see a mid table club grabbing him if Luton (hopefully) are relegated.
