Football Data and Statistics

Ed. note: Here is the post from earlier. I just deleted it and put it here.

There was some good statistical analysis in The Athletic today:


And if you get the impression we've been kind of meh so far, all I can say is ...

Well, yeah, you're right. We've been kind of meh so far. Statistically at least. But these data are cumulative and don't really capture the progress the team has made, so stay tuned.
 
This doesn't directly relate to MLS, but it's interesting to contemplate when thinking about our league's business and competitive structure. Especially the last paragraph.

Stop trying to innocently slip in content that says Arsenal is the best team. I'm on to you

This isn't specific to MLS, but I found it intriguing.


I'm just guessing, but this may have been what Kevin O'Toole was tasked to defend against in Toronto. His job was to prevent Bernardeschi from getting to the end line and executing a pullback, and we'd take our chances with him cutting to the inside.

Yes, I was. If we were going to have any realistic chance at beating City for the title, we needed this one. Anything can happen on the last day when it's close ("Arguuuueeeeoooo") but we didn't want to have to count on the Hammers to pull a rabbit out of their hats.

Or anvils. Whatever.

By the way, Big Ange was pissed at the Tottenham fans, especially since the Champions League was potentially within reach.
