  1. Expected goals part two: the pros and cons for FPL 1 hour, 35 mins ago

    Interesting that adding the xGs from two shots during the same phase of play does not give a realistic combined xG for that phase of play. Combining probabilities of single events to get a meaningful probability of a combination of events is not that simple! Having multiple scoring chances during the same phase of play only happens when all but possibly the last of these chances have been missed. If the original shot had an xG of 0.6 and the rebound shot an xG of 0.8, but the rebound opportunity would not have happened if the first shot had gone in, then the combined xG for this pair of shots could perhaps be calculated as 0.6 + (1.0-0.6)*0.8 = 0.92. But what actually constitutes a phase of play? I suggest that a new phase begins whenever a team gains undisputed possession of the ball, and continues until the other team gains undisputed possession or till the end of the half. Until then, anything that happens during that phase is at least partially dependent on what happened earli… » Read

  3. How AFCON 2019 could affect Liverpool's start to the new season 1 day, 3 hours ago

    According to Wikipedia, "Houllier resigned as Liverpool manager after a trophyless 2003–04 campaign, and Gerrard was linked with a move to Chelsea during the off-season. He admitted he was not "happy with the progress Liverpool has made", and that "for the first time in my career I've thought about the possibility of moving on."[32] In the end, Gerrard turned down a £20 million offer from Chelsea to stay with Liverpool and new coach Rafael Benítez.[33]" and "In regards to his contract issues with Liverpool, Gerrard told the press after the final, "How can I leave after a night like this?"[44] but negotiations soon stalled and on 5 July 2005, after Liverpool turned down another lucrative offer from Chelsea, Gerrard's agent Struan Marshall informed Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry that Gerrard was rejecting a club-record £100,000-a-week offer. Parry conceded the club had lost Gerrard, saying, "Now we have to move on. We have done our best, but he has made it clear he wants to… » Read

  4. How AFCON 2019 could affect Liverpool's start to the new season 1 day, 7 hours ago

    OK, I stand corrected about Lampard being a one-club Chelsea man - but he did stay there for 13 years. Stevie G was briefly tempted to leave Liverpool before thinking better of it, but he did stay there for 17 seasons before retiring to the MLS. It's a bit difficult to imagine Pogba having that sort of longevity with United, but you never know, he just might surprise us. Pogba was 23 when he returned to United in 2017 after 4 years at Juventus, the same age as Lampard was when he joined Chelsea. He's made a good start but shows signs of being streaky or a flat-track bully - so all he has to do now is to become more consistent, produce more in the bigger games and keep it up for another ten years! » Read

    Lampard and Gerrard were both one-club-for-life players who would give their all for their club. Pogba by contrast is a mercenary gives the impression that he can't wait to get away (or is that just his agent?). His form since his purple patch ended has been terrible FPL-wise - (-1)-1-2-2-15-2-2-2-2-1. And his FPL returns against big six opposition last season were no better - only 18 points from 8 matches. HIs first 9 matches under OGS only included one against big six opposition, and his double-figure returns during this period were all against weak defences - Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth and Fulham. Perhaps he needs better players such as French internationals around him and to be loved more or to have a different function in the team in order to produce his best, But he needs to produce his best form over a far longer period and to be able to turn it on against strong as well as weak opposition before he deserves to be compared with those two Premier League greats. » Read

    Players who might be reclassified include Zinchenko, Jota, Ritchie, Zaha, Perez, Doherty, Jonny, Salah, Son, Redmond and Deulofeu. The most interesting ones are probably Salah, Zinchenko, Zaha and Perez, Jota, Doherty, Redmond and Deulofeu. » Read

    I've just checked - he actually started this season with 4 strong defenders plus Wan-Bissaka. So only 4 at the back. And he did something similar last season. Don't know whether he posts on here, but he's number 3 in our Live Hall of Fame. » Read

  16. What to expect from Aston Villa’s defence in FPL 14 days, 8 hours ago

    Baines and Vidic in 2011/12 were the last defenders to be priced at 8.0m. FPL have lowered the top prices for both defenders and goalkeepers since then. Robertson will certainly be at least 6.5m, and probably 7.0m or 7.5m, but I think 8.0m is unlikely. » Read
