The XG data this season is providing sound support for what a few on here keep saying.
We are not far off a playoff side already. The main reason we are not already competing for a place is that we don’t score enough. The XG data shows that this is more to do with poor finishing than not creating chances.
We also concede more than we should, which is generally down to silly mistakes as opposed to being out played. In fact I can’t think of
Anyone out playing is since Clough came in?
We could plug a decent goalkeeper and a good striker into current side and be playoff contenders. I fancy Nigel will go beyond this and that’s why I fancy is to be right up there next season.
Talk of a complete overall is silly imo
Silly mistakes are the malaise of our whole defensive line on the whole. A new keeper would be hung out to dry the same as poor Aiden has this season. Sweens, Rawson, Gordon all are accidents waiting to happen. Nigel I think wants better as he knows they have no consistency, alluded as much in his post match. We should be looking for better than Bowery and Reid. Bowery again just does not pose enough poke up front for me, whereas Reid well...
There is something offered by Bowery in his great touch but he would have to be paired with a 20+ goal a season striker. If he was then i think he would add more than Danny Rose in his 7 - 10 goal seasons
