What's people's thoughts on life under Yogi so far? He has now been in charge for a third of the league games we have played this season. We haven't been particularly consistent in that time, and we've rarely been tremendous, but here's his stats compared to Ketts' for this season:
9 games played. 1.22 goals per game scored. 1.88 per game conceded. 1.1 points per game.
Kettlewell: (Figures in brackets represent his last 15 games, ignoring the wonder-start made to the league - the kind of selectivity some people might not approve of but for me it's a relevant factor in measuring the impact of the change of manager)
18 games played. 0.56 (0.4) goals per game scored. 1.88 (2.13) per game conceded. 0.7 (0.4) points per game.
For me, whilst we are unspectacular, inconsistent and far from safe, there are very clear improvements. Defense clearly still our biggest concern. Will the improvements be enough to keep us up? Who can really say. I think there's more reason for hope than there was under Kettlewell.
Edited to add: In Yogi first 9 compared to Kettelewell last 9, Yogi has us scoring 4 times as many goals, conceding 15% less goals and picking up almost 6 times as many points.
