    I think the pitch was the same length it's always been 😀. As for the grass, can't say that I noticed it was particularly long but, then again, I say that most weeks at home to avoid having to cut it.

    Thought we did very well yesterday. 
    Need to defend corners better. 
    Only pre season but some encouraging signs. 
    Evans was excellent and Dowell looks a good signing.
    All in all a good work out.

    Of course we will but Evans looked pretty decent in the couple of games he stepped in at CB last season. I remember the game at Bristol City. Like many others I suspect, my heart sank when Tomori went off injured early on to be replaced by Evans only for Evans to do a pretty good job.
    Controversial maybe but, I wouldn't be too alarmed to see him start at CB next season based on the games I've seen him play in that position.

    Coku? Try to spell his name correctly, it's not difficult, especially if you're going to use it three times in the same paragraph.
    I'm happy he's here but let's not get carried away just yet.

    We're definitely finishing in the top 24. That's about as accurate as you can predict at this stage.

    We were 9th last season (just before the season started), behind Stoke, Boro, WBA, Forest, Leeds, Swansea, Villa and Brentford. 5 of those 8 finished below us.
     
    A load of baalocks it is. 

    Also, no I don't think a newly relegated team (Huddersfield) are dark horses. Newly relegated teams have a huge advantage and should always be among the favourites.

    I'm wary of of placing any statistal value on XG principally because I'm not even convinced it's really a stat. If over 30 games ateam concedes only 5 goals while scoring 60 then you can sesnibly derive thast not only are they otent in attack, but also defesively very strong. XG seesm to me to be a glorified guess masquerading as something more tangible.

    I usually decide whether I think my team has been outplayed simply by watching the game and forming my own judgement (assuming I was at the game of course). Also, how do you determine if a team has been unlucky? If you hit the post, that's not unlucky, it was a shot off target. If the opposition keeper does a great save, then that's not unlucky either it the skill of the keeper out doing the skill of the striker on that occasion.

    Like friendlies sometimes because you can just enjoy a game without stress, pretend injuries, time wasting, bitching to refs and diving mostly 
    Everyone wants to see a good performance but at the same time you have to remember there's more intense training going on too. It's not just a match played for fun but the whole build up to the game is different. 
    Either team could take away a mountain of positives from a 3-0 defeat. They might care about the fitness stats, they might want to see a focus on defensive shape or trying things in attack that don't suit how the game is being played out.
    Some fans always look into friendlies too much. It will happen with this game. If Bristol win comfortably then there'll be talk from some how much more prepared they are for the season. 
    For fans it should be a time to relax in the sun and enjoy the kickabout without the nonsense. 
    For the clubs and players there's so much more they want out the games than a win. A win is nice if he comes with what you're doing. Nobody sets out to lose.
    But you watch, wait for some of the comments from either clubs fans after the result. Thankfully it will be a minority.

    You’re using past performances to predict future performances, and if anything supporting Derby would have taught you the Championship is completely unpredictable. 
    Draw with Blackburn 0-0, then beat Brentford 3-1 and travel to Bolton lose 1-0. 
    Every game is different, it’s not played by robots, so many different variables which make this stat utterly pointless. 
    If it had any basis to it you would be able to accurately predict results right, that would put bookies out of business, why is this not happening or is it just me losing money each week?
    Opta tell you this is your chance of scoring from different positions.

    Looks fair enough right?
    Ok, so let’s look at the game v Brentford where Wilson and Bryson hit them on the counter, one defender. Wilson puts the ball away from < 15% chance. Great!
    But wait, they go on to say
    The factors taken into account when assessing the quality of a chance include:
    Distance from goal
    Angle of the shot
    Did the chance fall at the player's feet or was it a header?
    Was it a one on one?
    What was the assist like? (eg long ball, cross, through ball, pull-back)
    In what passage of play did it happen? (eg open play, direct free-kick, corner kick)
    Has the player just beaten an opponent?
    Is it a rebound?
    Which leaves these nerds in their offices to come up with their own interpretation of how good the chance was. This is no different to me and 200 fans sitting here after beating Wigan and discussing was Bennett’s goal a fluke or not.

    Don’t see any use at all, most teams are reliant on one or two players putting the ball away. Lose them, you struggle. aG (actual goals) is a far more important stat and one that actually means something.
