I have zero interest in "fully understanding" statistical analysis of "expected" football, I'll just watch games, cheers.

 

High xG doesn't = a goal either. 

That is the only thing you've got right so far. But rather than mock you for it, I'm just glad you're making some progress.

I watch games, think about them a bit and talk about them, I don't then spend hours working on/creating spreadsheets extrapolating numbers to reflect the game I watched, I wonder which approach is actually worthy of mockery.

both me heart and me head are with toonpack on this. I do however admire the fish's dogged persistence with his graphs and stuff, whatever it is they mean!

Well lookee here, my eyes (which lie to me evidently) seem to have been backed up by the statistics.

Cameroon created one or two decent chances (1 in each half) and small poor chances, whereas Switzerland created 4-5 good chances (1 in first and 3-4 in the second). So, I'm not sure this is the gotcha you think it is?

 

Even your initial post doesn't make a whole heap of sense.

"Wow Cameroon creating some serious xG here" No, they weren't. Last round of games in the PL, the average xG for the winning side was 2.21, average for the losing side 1.08.

"sucker punch incoming" Is it a sucker punch when the puncher has made better chances than the punchee? 

 

 

It's fine though, I'll drop this now and let you luddites labour away in your ignorance.
