I can remember being in the pub with Sid Sellers and friends after the Sunderland play off final in 1990 and Kammy walked in. The place erupted!
Funny enough I was speaking to Sid only last week about Town stuff, hes a good lad.

Depends what the facts are though. Classic example of a stat not really telling us much, relative to the point made (implication that we don’t shoot when maybe we should).

All we get from that stat is that on average, our shots are taken further away than other teams. What we’d really want to see is how many shots we take relative to everyone else and the distribution of those shots by distance. My hunch would be that although our average distance is higher, the volume of shots is about the same/lower than most teams, meaning that a higher proportion of shots are taken from distance than closer to goal /in the “danger zone” where statistically you’re more likely to score.

Obviously it’s not hampered us too much so far with the likes of Gladwin,Williams and Reed capable from distance.

That stat in isolation doesn’t prove that we are any more or less shoot on sight than any other team though.

Sorry to get boring on everyone for a moment.

All excellent points, type, location and game state also massively important. For example, counter attacking finishes 1v1 against the ‘keeper are frequently better chance than closer in shots through a host of bodies. Headers also. A six-yard header is a decent chance but 10, 12? You might as well give up. Similarly was it a desperation effort when a team is 3-0 down in the 90th minute? Was it central or from the corner flag? Did a couple of 30 yarders distort the data? Could easily happen.

It is good to see that most people are being careful with this kind of aggregate data but you are right to remind people of its limitations as well as its uses.

Very interesting statistics, given how much flak Odimayo in particular, but all our players get during matches for inaccurate [email protected]

I suspect the stats are heavily skewed by passing short distance s across the back to each other when under no pressure. I think they are likely a good reflection on our style of play.

Mayos short passing has been excellent, his long passing far less so, when it works its brilliant but its still very hit and miss for distances, similar with Conroy too who often tries a few more of the "Hollywood passes" which if you count just those long passes then the figures will be massively different.

I see that Louis Reed has completed 1,101 passes which is 131 passes more than the next player in the L2 list.
