Re: Exeter Expects. Exeter City v Bolton (A) - 19:00 - 12th Jan

Stat of the day from the official site - we've had 192 shots, 44 on target and scored 25 goals (must not be including Exeter yet). So in general terms 87% of the time we have a shot, you've got nothing to get excited about, coz it isn't going in!

Do I get grumpy owd bastard of the day award? :-)

So we need Fleetwoods permission to terminate old safe hands Crellins loan do we? That sounds unusual?
Well if we've said we'll take him on loan for a season and that's what we contracted to do, I'm not sure it's that unusual to be held to it?

Re: Exeter Expects. Exeter City v Bolton (A) - 19:00 - 12th Jan

I really don't care too much how many shots we've had in a 2-0 win. 2 would be fine by me. :-) Each to his own, but there's a reason people more fondly recall the Rioch/Todd promotions than the Parkinson one. Wins are nice - from what I can remember! - but actually enjoying the game might not be a ...

Re: Exeter Expects. Exeter City v Bolton (A) - 19:00 - 12th Jan

For the stats about shots, it's only significant if they go in the onion bag and turn into points (in greater frequency than the oppo manage), otherwise might as well count corners too. Hmm. Bit reductive, IMO. Obviously goals are the only important metric, but shots can give a reasonable interpret...

One more thing, our big defenders never win an attacking set piece when they go up. Why is that?

Re: Exeter Expects. Exeter City v Bolton (A) - 19:00 - 12th Jan

We got a point in what was a poor performance from a number of players. I'm not sure any formation would've helped Delaney or Fonz or Sarce or Isgrove. For the stats about shots, it's only significant if they go in the onion bag and turn into points (in greater frequency than the oppo manage), other...

About time one of our big men got on the end of one and scored.

Now we're in the sh8t. Even they commentators haven't gone for their normal 3-0 win...Hopefully Lee makes a real impact.
