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

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.

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