    Blocks have never counted except on the line. Look up the stats before calling them.

    The expected goal thing is very flawed and not really taken seriously, as it only accounts for chances where there is a shot and misses important variables.

    The clubs use full blown "analytics" (including xG amongst many other things) and not just basic shots/shots on targets stats.

    So tell me the authentic source for your comment "We have half the number of shots on goal as we did under mancini in 2011/12". You can't can you? I suggest that is embellished BS to make a point.

    2011/12 250 shots on target 93 goals, 2016/17 143 shots on target 53 goals from 27 games - using the consistent methodology.

    They have cretpt up since last time I checked, but if you can divide you will see they are both massively down with Pep's anti football.

    Taking it one game at a time
    We averaged 19.4 shots per game in 11/12 and currently average 15.9, an 18% drop. Not my definition of massive. On the other hand, we are conceding 7.9 shots per game against an average of 10.4 - a 24% improvement. But maybe both changes imply a more boring team in your eyes.

    Try and win a game to start with against a top 4 side in PL. Given another chance today.

    New keeper.
    Really good holding midfielder, a la Kante.
    Clear out all ageing hit men.
    Add height to forward line.
    Find a centre half.........ffs we've spent a fortune on a load of dross. Vinny cost peanuts, there must be others nearly that good.
    Pray that Maureen completely melts down.

    Chelsea are about wrap up their second title in 3 years. Not bad.

    Since the Totenham game earlier this year, he has been more or less spot on with his tactics and I see the clear rationale behind his decisions. So the problems, and I am sure he is conscious of this as well, is how to influence the players in terms of attitude, motivation and mentality. The drastic moves he made at the start of the season, some may argue, is a vice to specifically challenge this problem of attitude and mentality, but some of those decisions has turned out to be detrimental and in the case of the goalkeeper disastrous.

    So I think he has to find a way to influence the mentality of the players so that it manifests in a positive manner: First and foremost there is no need for history lessons in the press conferences because we can all go to college to learn history, he should just focus on managing and coaching the team and any mind games or moves he makes in terms of handling the players must bring out positive results and not affect the mentality of the players in a negative way.

    The display was as insipid as Dutch today - so yes.
