    Random possession stat

    According to a piece in Mail On Sunday sports pages possession in the 4 top leagues:

    Soton 66.1%
    Man C 65.5
    Notts and Leicester C 62.3
    Peterborough 62.2

    Read into that whatever you want!!

    We were the only ones to get nothing, not even play offs, out of the season, illustrating how ineffective we were.

    Every other team mentioned got a lot closer to the top of its table than we got to ours. If anyone thought that good possession stats meant high table placings, then we're here to show that it ain't necessarily so.

    There's clearly a strong correlation though. Yes, we are an outlier and I think we know as a set of fans how it came about.

    I think it shows high possession football is largely effective but that we need a better defence.

    What it showed in our case is that we didn’t do very well for the 37.7% of the time when we didn’t have the ball.

    Possession stats are meaningless

    Manchester City boasted 74.3% possession in the first half, completing 349 passes (over three times as many as United) but only mustered three attempts and a single shot on target. Guardiola’s men notched just 0.15xG in the opening 45 minutes, while United registered 1.37xG.

    The fact we scored 89 league goals would suggest otherwise.
