#FPLMatchups #GW6: Understanding Vespidae
+ The Alchemist

Hi and welcome back to my weekly matchups article where I use my coaching lens to explore matchups in the #PremierLeague to gain some insight in navigating our #FPL decisions.

#FPLCommunity ❤️♻️🙏
#netthathaul 🎣
I have been intrigued and perplexed about 2 teams in particular this season, the Hornets, and the Bees. Coming out of my wildcard, I recognize that my analysis of Sarr last GW stopped when I saw his team did not attack very much.
This narrow perspective clouded the possibility that Sarr could haul in the next couple of gameweeks. This thought led me to think that I may have a similarly narrow perspective of Brentford.

#Alisson’s #PremierLeague form is an absolute joke! 🔥

He’s faced 7 1v1 situations so far & saved all 7! 🤯

My model predicts an average #PL GK would’ve conceded ~4 goals from those situations by now! 👑

How long do we think he can keep the 100% record? 🤔

#LFC #LiverpoolFC
My model uses a database of #PremierLeague 1v1s to not only calculate the expected save probability of each 1v1 situation but to also predict what the optimal strategy is in each situation & how likely a GK would be to make the save for a given decision (for more see thread👇🏻).
So can #Alisson keep this up?

He obviously cant keep his 100% 1v1 record forever but I think he can keep his way above avg form going as my model finds that #Alisson only decreased the finish difficulty for the opposition striker with his decision making on 1 of the 7 occasions!

#DeGea is one of the best GKs in the #PremierLeague when dealing with long range 1v1s & the save vs #Armstrong was great!

He knew AA was ~15yrd out so it would take a top finish to beat him so he didn’t need to rush out or gamble as that would only make AA’s finish easier

#MUFC ImageImageImageImage
It may look like a simple save in the end but that’s all down to #DeGea’s excellent decision making which massively reduces the chance quality

The composure DDG showed to stay deep to his line & not over commit early isn’t common, even in the #PremierLeague

Such top goalkeeping Image
Here’s a similar situation where the GK didn’t keep their composure during a long range 1v1 & rushed forward & gambled & as a result let in a pretty average finish

I am not using this to bash #Bachmann, instead I think it should be used to praise #DeGea, the DDG save wasn’t easy ImageImageImageImage

Project Preview:

This #AlexanderArnold FK against #Chelsea was the most unstoppable FK in the #PremierLeague since 2017/2018 according to the FK ExSaves model I’ve built!

My model predicts this shot would only be saved 6 times in 1000!

& Trent made it look so simple!

#LFC #GK ImageImage
For those interested, this graphic is a good representation of what the model actually “sees”.

The variables used to train the model were:

• Initial Shot Distance
• Initial Shot Angle
• Shot Trajectory Relative to the Wall
• Final Shot Location
• Shot Velocity Image
My model passed the sanity check as it found:

Closer FKs are harder to save ✅

More central FKs are harder to save ✅

FKs which go over the wall are harder to save ✅

FK which are higher & closer to the corners are harder to save ✅

FK which are faster are harder to save ✅

Class from #Alisson!

Wonderful decision to wait & react rather than engaging #Pukki!

#Alisson’s improved so much vs long range 1v1s!

19/20 long range 1v1 ExSaves: 6.01
19/20 long range 1v1 Saves: 5 ❌

20/21 long range 1v1 ExSaves: 11.46
20/21 long range 1v1 Saves: 13 ✅

#LFC ImageImageImageImage
So many GKs panic when strikers run in 1v1 (& #Alisson used to be one of them) & feel they have to rush out & immediately & end up gifting easy finishes.

It’s awesome that #Alisson seems to have fixed this weakness in his game because his compatriot #Ederson still hasn’t! 👇🏻
By backing off #Alisson forces #Pukki wider than he would’ve been if he had rushed early & allows his defenders to pressure the ball from behind & forces #Pukki to try to smash the ball rather than having an sidefoot or chipped finish which makes the chance quality so much lower! Image

/Thread/ How #PremierLeague shirt sponsors have changed. Data POWA analyses shirt sponsorship trends in England’s top flight football league. Once small and local, now sponsors are multinationals. In the late 1990s tech and telecoms companies predominated; then financial Image
@POWAindex @utdarena @MUFR_ @iemadAFC @ChrisWheatley_ @MaaxiAngelo @mjshrimper @OsmanZtheGooner @theesk @arsenalbarclays and insurance firms muscled in. Since 2005, when gambling laws were liberalised, betting firms have worked their way up the league. This season they sponsor 45% of teams. The average size and type of the business sponsoring each tier of EPL teams has changed dramatically.
@POWAindex @utdarena @MUFR_ @iemadAFC @ChrisWheatley_ @MaaxiAngelo @mjshrimper @OsmanZtheGooner @theesk @arsenalbarclays During the 91/92 season #ManUnited, #Arsenal and #Chelsea were all sponsored by electronic brands. Nowadays, the likes of Arsenal and #ManCity are both sponsored by global airlines, with #Liverpool and #Tottenham choosing to take financial service companies as their lead partner.

🧵I love #football

Have done since the 1980's ⚽️

Nowadays though, the off-field stuff seems to get as much coverage & column inches as the game itself 🗞️📺📱

Competition isn't just about trophies - it's about eyeballs, soft power, geo-politics, PR and #money

Quick tale...
Did you see that news report from the #US this week about the #billionaire financier #TomBarrack being arrested? ($250m bail)

In the weird (but fun) world we live in, that incident ties to #NewcastleUnited & the #PremierLeague

Say what?! 🧐

#FollowTheMoney #Networks #Power 💸
We have;

- Billionaires acting as back-channel diplomats (💰)
- Political actors orchestrating things but pretending they're not
- Qatar buy rights to #EPL for region
- Saudi pirate them #AJ #BeIn #BeOut
- SA try to buy NUFC
- Qatar say "No Way"

📍🇦🇷 Emiliano Buendia

📝El fichaje más caro en la historia del Aston Villa ¿Quién es? ¿Cómo juega? ¿Cuáles son sus características?

📌Todo eso y mucho más en este hilo: Image
Primero, las estadísticas del argentino en la Efl Championship pasada con el Norwich: Image
🔎¿De que juega? Es mediocampista derecho ofensivo. Usualmente, arranca por derecha y tiende a tirarse al medio. La temporada pasada el Norwich jugó con un 4-2-3-1 y en la línea de tres volantes intercambió mucho entre la derecha y el medio. ImageImageImageImage

What a save from #DeGea

Unbelievably calm GKing in a crucial moment

It may look like a simple save but that’s all because of his exemplary decision to use the wait & react 1v1 strategy as the 1v1 was from long range!

Not many GKs could make such a good decision

#MUFC #MUNFUL
The striker was ~16 yrds from the centre of goal & at a pretty wide angle (hard to see from the photo) so #DeGea’s decision to stay deep made the finish very difficult as he didn’t rush out & gift a simple dink/rounded finish
The great thing about #DeGea’s positioning here is that if the striker takes a touch rather than shooting he’s far enough off his line & prepared & ready to engage then, only once he knows the striker is so close to goal that he can no longer trust his reactions to make the save!

Yesterday was another crazy day for #Football & specifically in this case, for #Derby #dcfcfans

#EFL ruling on their accounting practices

Threat of sanctions - What will that mean?

#RichardKeough ruling - They have to pay him £2.3m (bonkers episode)🤯

Then add in the farce of the #takeover process

#DCFC #FitAndProper

I'm equally fascinated & frustrated by rogue investors in #EnglishFootball

I've read widely and spoken to people with genuine knowledge of the machinations of global finance💸

What puzzles me today is, how/why did #MelMorris get himself in this hole?😏

I’ve always thought the discourse surrounding #Pickford is odd

Twitter would make you think he is the worst GK to ever play in the #PremierLeague which isn’t true, he’s an avg #PL shotstopper!

Yes he had a bad 2020 but his recent good form is starting to make up for that

#EFC
Pickford’s #PremierLeague Save% for #Everton = 68.9

Expected Save% for an avg #PL GK who faced the same shots as #Pickford in that time = 69.0

I understand why people think that #England’s #1 should be better than a middle of the road PL GK but the abuse he gets is just crazy!
Also regarding the #England #1 shirt, the main reason he has it is because currently #Southgate believes that being an average shotstopper is outweighed by the fact he is a level above any other English GK when it comes to distributing the ball, especially when under pressure!

#PremierLeague Shotstopping Performance Graphic:

#Ederson #Areola #Martinez & #Sanchez have been class 🔥

#Henderson has outperformed #DeGea when it comes to shotstopping 🔄

Despite criticism #Ramsdale #Pickford & #Guaita have performed at a roughly average top flight level 👀
Explanation of ExSaves:

ExSaves are calculated by looking at every shot a GK faces & using the shots distance, angle, trajectory, final location, the number of defenders in the way + other things & using historical data to find the probability that an avg PL GK makes the save...
...Therefore as a rough example a shot from 40yrds at a tight angle that goes down the middle of goal with all the teams defenders behind the ball may have an ExSave of 99% whereas a central 1v1 from 10yrds fired into the bottom corner may have an ExSave of 10%.

Ungeordnetes zur #SuperLeague: Natürlich handelt es sich um einen unfassbaren Power Grab mitten i.d. Pandemie. Natürlich hat Gary Neville Recht. Natürlich sollte man moralisch empört sein. Aber: Das bestehende System ist leider (fast) genauso broken. 1/12
Wozu all die Empörung, wenn eine #ChampionsLeague-Reform defacto schon fast dasselbe vorsieht, nämlich ein Antrittsrecht für Clubs, die sportlich nicht qualifiziert sind? Was bringt eine #Bundesliga, die einfach immer von Bayern München gewonnen wird? 2/12
Es gibt auf Landesebene nur auf Verbandspapier einen sportlichen Wettbewerb, aber nicht i.d. Realität. Geld schießt keine Tore, ist der hohlste, ideologischste Spruch ever. Doch, das tut es, any given day. Entweder Du bist Bayern oder jemand mit annähernd ähnlichem Geld. 3/12
