Official_ITFC is currently "singing" the Paul Lambert song. What a time to be alive at the bottom of the table!

Nailed-on crosses?
at 19:23 29 Nov 2018

Lots of people (including me) have been bemoaning the quality of Town's crosses, and also our inability to cut out opponents' crosses. So I had a quick look to see if the stats from Lambert's four games back this up. They do. It's ugly.

Overall, in PL's four games we have put in 102 crosses compared to just 59 from our opponents. Sounds impressive, but it doesn't tell the story.

Trouble is, our crossing accuracy has been just 18%, compared to 42% from our opponents.
Which means in those 4 games we've actually only put in 19 accurate crosses vs 25 from our opponents.

The two recent home games have been the worst:

WBA (H): Town – 27 crosses (5 accurate), WBA – 13 crosses (7 accurate)
BRISTOL C (H): Town – 26 crosses (3 accurate), Bristol – 13 crosses (5 accurate)

Note that in each of those 4 games we have also forced more corners than our opponents, 28-17 in total. I think the only team to have scored from one of our corners is West Brom.

Luton playing some exhilarating football. Three superb teams goals in the first half hour.

The only Town player to come out of that with any credit. Dived in to make a goal-saving block when we looked like getting mugged, and forced the only decent save of the game at the other end.
