Penney
at 11:32 16 Jul 2022

Their right wing has got behind him and scored twice already. Enough said really.
Admittedly ball made a big error in the build up to the second but again Penney proving he doesn’t have the defensive credentials required.

Any idea if there’s a way to watch our side? Think it’s only available on the palace £20 preseason package.

Morsy celebration
at 23:19 27 Mar 2022

Now I know you can’t take anything from footballers’ displays of love for the club / “I’m here to stay gestures”…. But seeing that celebration from another angle… was it exactly that? 👀

To those who say we need to be better
at 08:44 9 Feb 2022

While on gut feeling from the last 2 games I can absolutely appreciate where you are coming from. I certainly left the gills game with a similar outlook. However, looking at the teams who are in the top 6 this year, it doesn’t take much to realise that in fact to get top 6 you don’t even have to be that good… This league is such that you just need to consistently do what we have since McKenna has come in - it might not seem like a Manchester City style title winning display, but this isn’t the premier league and we can’t expect that.

When reflecting on McKenna’s style it became apparent to me that while it appears we often struggle to carve opponents apart, we still create quite a few big chances in *most* of our games. Take last night for example: Bonne had a couple, Wolf had some headers, Norwood should have taken/squared his one and even Donacien had a decent chance from a header. All while limiting (an admittedly poor) side to next to nothing in front of goal. Yet still people complained and were unhappy about the performance.

I agree that at times, especially when you feel we are not getting the result we want, passing it around the back can be infuriating - but this allows us to limit the opponents to so few chances that over the course of the game you create more chances than your opponent and thus have a good chance of winning or at least drawing.

This got me thinking, how many big chances do we create/concede per a game at the moment and how has this changed since McKenna has come in

The 8 games McKenna has been here:
Big chances created 2.125 per game
Big chances conceded 0.625 big chances per game
Difference of +1.5

The 8 league games prior to McKenna:
Big chances created 1.875
Big chances conceded 2.125
Difference of -0.5

So overall we seem to be actually creating a similar amount of big chances per game (despite the appearance that we are not) and our control of games means we are offering teams far less big opportunities. While it offers hope for this season it should certainly be a good recipe for a season long campaign - although of course you have to maintain it!

There are some caveats to add here - McKenna has arguably had a slightly easier run than our 8 before him, we had a few games under interim in the games prior, cook was clearly not getting the best tune out of the players during this sample or he wouldn’t have been sacked and finally that we need to do it against big teams which barring Wycombe we have not yet proven ourselves. Regardless I thought it an interesting set of statistics.

Another caveat: I am (like most of us) a hopeless blue tinted goggles kind of guy.

Regardless of your status on Cook in/out....

How refreshing is it to have a CEO, who is able to come out and communicate via interview with the fans re: the decision and plan going forward. While I know a lot of what Ashton has said is a bit smoke and mirrors, its lightyears ahead of what we recieved during the Evans regime.

The nearest pub is full and not many other watering holes around here so if you’re in need of a pre game pint have one near station and go straight to the game after.

WYCOMBE’S A SH*HOLE, I WANNA GO HOME.
