With regards to us a an attacking force I have found the below stats.

In our last 20 matches we have scored precisely 4 goals in the opening 45 minutes and 1 of those was against Villa youth team and another 2 in first half injury time.

In our last 6 games shots on target in the first half have been one, one, five, two, zero, zero with the 2nd leg against Leipzig being the standout of 5 on target.

Good job a game lasts 90 minutes then isn’t it.

I bet you’re a right barrel of laughs at parties Thunderbird 🙄.

Thats the problem with stats - they mean nothing in isolation. If our second half goals win the games then we are an attacking force who peak later in games. Scoring early doesn't mean anything. Its the end result that counts.

Yes it is so if we don't concede in the first half. Then its alright but when we concede in first half we end up loosing games.

We are just not very good atm, whichever stats you look at. Klopp will really earn his money in the next week. No idea how he will pick his team for the Villa match.

Rest Robbo
Play Davis
Jones has to play
Firmino is fresh must play
Time for the OX
Mane a rest

Klopp won’t be sleeping well.

I dreamofgini I agree mate some stats can mean very little but they can also prove a lot. I’m Sure every club and manager use stats so they must think they are a little relevant. It’s right if our 2nd half goals win us the games then what does it matter. One stat that def does count is in our last 21 games we’ve only won 8 games (1 v villa kids) drawn 3 and Lost 10.

Agree Mark could be one of if not the biggest week of our season. Worst case we could be out of Europe and another league defeat. Best best case we could be in CL semi final and 4th in the league. Out of the 2 being 4th in the league sounds the easier. Plus winning at Anfield on sat will put us in better mindset for next wed.

I’m not a massive one for stats especially when it comes to ball possession, look back at Leicester, they won the league as the team with least amount of possession during the whole season. Completed passes is another one, no good if it’s in your own half and side to side.

Shots and shots on target however is quite crucial, if you don’t shoot you aren’t going to score. And whilst the defence has been massively exposed this season, we have also really faltered in the final third big time. Our failure to score has been just as alarming as the defensive issues - all bar the Palace game.

Markp08 a midfield of Jones, Fabinho and Ox is a recipe for disaster. Put that out against Villa and they’ll beat us, but that our against Madrid and they’ll slaughter us. Jones is too inexperienced to be put in that position and Ox is not disciplined or skilful enough. It’s “either or” alongside Fabinho and Thiago.

08 Apr 2021 09:01:18
Ox is finished he’s a 15 minute man now sadly!

Drogie stats can be manipulated mate and as you have said they do not win you games but they do paint a picture. Our stats show we are dominating possession in most games but not getting hardly any shots on target and you cannot score if you don't hit the target.

The stats i put up were from first half to show how slow we are starting games and struggling so to be fair ill post the 2nd half stats also. Out of those 20 games we have scored 21 goals in the 2nd half with 3 coming against Villa's kids, 1 against Utd in cup and 4 against Leipzig.

So the 16 remaining league games we scored 14 goals in the 2nd half. And 10 of them came in 4 games so that leaves 4 goals in the other 12.

In the full 90 mins we have had the following shots on target 3, 4, 1, 13 (Villa Kids), 4, 4, 6, 7, 5, 4, 5, 4, 3, 6, 8, 5, 3, 2, 4 and 7

This is only a discussion piece and to be honest you don't really need stats to see we have struggled massively since the Palace game. Yes we have had a few good performances in that time but we've also had some dreadful ones.

08 Apr 2021 10:58:39
Drogie even at that, The level of quality of the shots taken/ on target do matter. For example, you can have 10 shots on target and look dangerous BUT if the shots or chances created have a low probability of being converted then, it does not mean a lot in reality.

08 Apr 2021 13:25:28
My list was supposed to be questions for Klopp. Anyhow I do think Jones will play v Villa and hopefully Milner will play lb as Robbo is knackered.

I have already pointed out about the lack of first half goals. Matches may last 90 minutes but goals scored early on put tghe pressure on the opposition.
