Also what the hell does the,I assume tactics coach,show the substitute when he gets his 200 sheet A4 file out?

The subs look at it as if it was a diagram of how to split an atom 

Football is a very simple game complicated by bean counters 

Now you have lost me... 

xG isn’t a tactic.

Like all stats they are what they are. Make of them what you will. Like Leicester when they won the league, stat wise they always had little possession. So they were lucky? No they played on the counter. Stats by themselves mean nothing, but stats plus football brain can hint you a thing or two.

For the stats fans, the Vale have the highest shots on target % in league 2 at 42%.

For those that don’t care for stats, best to ignore the above. 

All we have to do is to convert those shots into goals at a higher rate than hitherto and we walk away with the league. 

Easier said than done.
