1v1s are incredibly important situations for GKs to master as they correspond to 35% of all goals scored in the 19/20 #PremierLeague!

In this thread I will show how effective various 1v1 strategies are at making saves.

I’m sure #GKcoaches will be v interested in this!
I’ve analysed every single 1v1 situation in the 19/20 #PremierLeague (600+ situations) & calculated using logistic regression the optimum strategy a GK could use to maximise their chance of making the save depending on the situation location & the build-up leading to the chance.
I found that GKs use the following 5 strategies to save 1v1s:

1. Wait deep & then react to the shot
2. Engage & then react to the shot
3. Engage & smother the ball
4. Engage & spread
5. Engage & block

¿Sabías que Philippe Coutinho fue clave para que Mauricio Pochettino llegara a la #PremierLeague🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿? 🤔

El DT argentino 🇦🇷 y el enganche brasilero 🇧🇷 coincidieron en el #Espanyol. Así comienza la historia 👇
🔙 2010.

Coutinho pasó de #VascoDaGama 🇧🇷 a #Inter 🇮🇹 que acababa de ganar todo con Mourinho.

El brasilero, quien había sido comprado por los italianos en 2008, debutó en la Supercopa UEFA (0-2 vs. Atlético de Madrid en Mónaco). Entró por Sneijder.
A partir de ahí, sumó rodaje en sus primeros meses en Europa con Rafa Benítez como DT.

Sin embargo, una lesión en la rodilla y la salida del entrenador español hizo que Coutinho pierda lugar y no juegue tan seguido en la segunda parte de la temporada y en casi todo 2011.

Dean #Henderson vs David #DeGea
#PremierLeague Shotstopping 19/20

As requested I will compare the shot stopping performances of the two potential #ManchesterUnited number 1’s.

There will be statistics & 1v1 plots!


#MUFC #GKAnalysis #GKUnion
Firstly let’s look at post shot expected goals conceded.

@StatsBomb’s PSExG model takes the position of the shot, the position of the defenders, the speed of the shot & the placement of the shot into account in order to calculate whether an Avg GK would save it.
Using this model #DeGea has played almost exactly to the level of an average #PremierLeague goalkeeper & has conceded -0.2 goals more than expected.

#Henderson on the other hand has saved #SheffieldUnited +6.5 more goals than an avg GK would be expected to!

Arsenal v. Southampton; Emirates; 23.11.2019

Decent line up. Emery finally getting good players together on ground.
Presence of Pepe would have made me happy personally.

#ARSSOU #Arsenal
Clever by southampton to take foul.
too late for Arsenal to take positions.


#ARSSOU #Arsenal
Saints are pulling frustration with slow game. Trying to control game.
We gotta keep the mind on game rather than get frustrated.
Game has to be one our pace.

[THREAD] Mais um estudo do CIES que compara 31 dos principais campeonatos europeus e mais dados tão interessantes como preocupantes sobre a #LigaNOS

O foco é sobretudo a composição dos planteis, e fica bem clara a falta de visão, planeamento e estabilidade na maioria dos clubes
Em 2019, a média europeia de % jogadores formados no clube é 17,2%. Em Portugal, cada clube tem uma percentagem média de 9,1% de jogadores formados em casa, em cada um dos seus plantéis

No entanto, a média é altamente enviasada pelo SLB (28,4%)
Se ao nível de selecções jovens somos claramente dos 6 países mais bem sucedidos nos últimos 10 anos (juntaria Espanha (21%), Alemanha (12%), Holanda (20%), França (17%) e Inglaterra (13%)), o campeonato, ao contrário dos outros, não promove os jogadores que delas saem

#FPL is a game of decisions.

How much time do we spend thinking about the quality of those decisions?

Here's a {thread} taking a look at some of the factors at play.

#FPLCommunity #FantasyPL #SkyFF #PremierLeague #epl

Identifying the problem

This might be under-performing players, fixture swings, inflexible team structure or a host of other common issues. The first question is likely to be 'Is this actually a problem at all?' It's often the case in FPL (& fantasy games generally)...

...that we don't have enough data to be sure. Simply put, the sample size is too small to draw conclusions. We often feel like we have to make moves to keep up with the pack. Classic FOMO. As a result we end up over-managing our teams & wasting transfers.
