Think it goes as a blocked shotStats are an odd thing. I'd love to know how Kaikai's first half shot that was cleared off the line by a defender doesn't count as a shot. Stats say we had one, which was down as Ward's effort from distance.

Yes, true enough.Think it goes as a blocked shot

For me its a shot. Who clears it is irrelevant.

Yates was my MOTM and would agree with Gretarrson and Gabriel's ratings also thought Ward and Kaikai had decent games. Garbutt and Dougall were the two who disappointed me although interesting Kenny had as many touches as he did.

We played down the right a lot more today and if I'm being critical Turts isn't as effective as Garbs who only had 63 touches.

Makes absolutely no difference whatsoever the stats it’s about taking yer chances !From last week at Oxford (from t'other forum)

Show a bit of a change but maybe not quite what I expected. Long balls down, but 2 big strikers. Crosses up but accuracy still poor. Didn't have a player in the top 3 passers.

This has been a great thread all season and has reflected when we've got it right and when we've got it horribly wrong. When your defenders have the most touches in a game, you know there's a problem.I wish Critchley read this thread and the very common themes!
