Stats that put us 20th
Distance covered per game, 106 km - 20th
Sprints per game 445 - 20th

Are we in bad shape, are we just not putting an effort in, or both?

Nevertheless, movement and sprints gives you an edge. And we are bottom of the league in that department.

Re: Stats that put us 20th
Everyone knows that if Mouhrinho was coaching our team we wouldnt be at the bottom. We'd probably be in the top 10 now.

So the logic has to be that there is a coach out there can get more from the squad than Bilic can at present. (Mouhrinho)

So as Mouhrinho isnt available is there another coach that could guarantee we would be top 10 and not relegated?

Of course there is!

So in economics speak, what is the potential opportunity cost of a decision to keep this manager? 50m if we go down? plus losing our best players.

And how much does a new coach cost to get a new top coach in? 4m for 3 yrs? 1m payoff to Bilic.

So it would cost 5m in this year to insure against a 50m + best players loss.

It is the EASIEST business decision in the world to make. I cant believe he's still here.

Re: Stats that put us 20th
Our recruitment policy is flawed from top to bottom, side to side and upside down !

In other words, we make it up as we go along

There are no long term plans
There is no pace in the team, we wanted pace, we got Arnautovic
We should have a policy of buying players of 26 and under.

The club is in a mess

All these wouldn't have happened, if we had stayed at the Boleyn.

I wonder what our stats would be like if we was still at the Boleyn??

Re: Stats that put us 20th
The stats I read also said:

We are 19th in terms of average age and 19th when it comes to goals conceded in the last 10 minutes.

Our squad is not fit and the age makes the matter worse. One stat not included is injuries, I wonder how many of our injuries are as a result of training methods, lack of fitness and age?

About time the garbage in the boardroom woke up!

Re: Stats that put us 20th
Actually, there is one team stat we are doing very well at and are in 2nd place in. That's the long ball passing table. We are close to Burnley in first place but above Brighton, Leicester and Everton....

Almost makes you wish for the good old days of Sam Allardyce denying we were a long ball team doesn't it....nah scrub that comment!

Re: Stats that put us 20th
The issue here is more about about the players are instructed to play. IMO Slave has made the team too rigid with little flexibility to take chances and hassle the other team. Players have also lost confidence in one another, a player will not make a run if the position they left is not supported by another, therefore leaving gaping holes to be exploited.

Without that confidence, dependency on team mates and with a relatively structured style of play we will look crap in those stats and we will lose games.

We are at our best when individuals can perform to their strengths, but we are not seeing this with every player looking back at our own goal in the worry of leaking play to the opposition.

This comes from having a poor defence and one you cannot really on. We have gone from having sound defence and poor attack to those problems being reversed. We need marshals at the back and so far our defence is extremely poor from Hart through to Defensive Midfield.

Re: Stats that put us 20th
I see more sprints for Stratford station before the Stop/Go boards come out.

Our teams fitness and application in games is appalling and has been for ages.

Re: Stats that put us 20th
Ground covered doesn't mean much in my opinion. It could easily indicate that yiure spending the whole match without the ball for example. Sprints though is a different thing. If you don't run fast very much, you're at a distinct disadvantage to opponents who are running quickly.

Anyway, a pair of eyes tells you all you need to know. We aren't fit, simple.

Re: Stats that put us 20th
What do you expect? Our fitness coach is 70.

Call me old fashioned but in the modern age of 0.01% improvements making a difference in fitness, someone in charge who can actually achieve an erection would surely be the minimum requirement?

Re: Stats that put us 20th
Aren't Newcastle pretty poor on these stats too?

But a little higher in the real table.
