I'm just gonna be honest and confess, I have no idea how to read these charts. What's considered 'good'?

They're just bar charts, really. Bigger the coloured area, "better" they are at that thing, so you get an idea of how they play. Each one is scored 0-100 in comparison to the other players in the database. Hatched area compares them to their team mates.

Charlie Adam in your Championship season.

Look at green - Aggressive when tackling but doesn't bother getting too involved in defensive work. Good at challenging aerially and picking up second balls.

Look at yellow - Elite in possession, spent more time moving the ball forwards than playing safe sideways/backwards passes. Compared to his team mates it shows he was essential for the team.

Look at red - Got plenty of chances and was clinical with them, but high team mate figures show he was in a strong team. Low shot quality suggests he took a lot of long range shots most players wouldn't score from.

Not sure if that helps?

All about trying to compare categories. After a while you can combine across and see other things (players with low aggression, low aerials, low ball carrying are usually awful physically etc.)

Know its a bit much but I prefer this to the bar charts others do where its just every metric listed.

Does any manager actually take stats like this seriously?  If so, when they are looking to buy a new player does it not just become a big game of Top Trumps?

Its taken as more stylistic than quality by those in the game, as far as I know. So you see how a players been playing in terms of role/style, what they do/don't do, and figure out if they're going to fit in well with what you want them to do or if it'll take time for them to adapt. Helps build a shortlist too if you want players who are used to doing certain amounts of certain things.

Not for me with the 'stats' Clough would've put a hammer/squash racquet right through the laptop as well.

Thank you.

Thanks very much for that. Certainly informative.

Respect to the charts @RandomGuy., however not my thing I'm afraid, unless I'm being unreservedly biased, lol.

No disrespect intended, however Mr Chapman couldn't start a game whilst being employed at a club which was transcending through the relegation campaign as predicted by most realists on here 12 months ago. Two clown managers taken into account, Jimbo McPake and Marco McGhee.

Just saw your latest posting regarding Charlie Adam stats, genuinely interesting, imho.

The point I was about to highlight was Gordon Strachan saw Sir Charles of Adam off the premises indirectly after a previously agreed one year contract extension. I can only compare to my own professional experience whereby I'd sooner have a guy employed on my site who may on occasion challenge me and piss me off with his opinions, however I could trust the feller 100% as a top class operative to complete his task as instructed to the best of his ability.

Mr Gordon Strachan does not welcome alternative opinions, this is fact and John Nelms', bless his cotton socks, doesn't know his arse from a hole in the ground I'm afraid.

Genuinely, the very best of good luck to our latest incumbent Gary Bowyer, as like all other Dee's on here, I love my club dearly.

Regards.

So is the more shaded bit the team average?

Yeah the shaded area shows the average from the other players who played CM that season.

I can see how an ‘Adam’ could be extremely disruptive in an organisation. When someone fundamentally believes they are more knowledgeable than anyone else in the team and when they are looked up to by a section of the workforce then they pretty much have to be the boss or they need emptied. Bowyer (or any new manager) has to come in and win Charlie over before he can manage the rest of the team, everyone listening to the manager then looking at Charlie to see whether to take the managers words on board. Not for me. It was fine will it lasted, it’s over, we move on.

Anyone attending the friendly match against Peterhead at Balmoor Stadium on Saturday should be aware that parking will be very limited due to a planned charity event nearby - https://www.peterheadfc.org/2022/06/30/car-parking-limited/

It is also a 2pm kick off, usually able to get space on surrounding streets

The game is also showing up as available on the PFC streaming platform (not the best) if anyone wants to watch it.

His most recent season in America. Presses well in midfield and keeps the ball really well. Got told he was wasted in a deeper role at Miami and is better if you allow him to get involved in the final third, and charts back that up. This was him when he got more freedom to attack.

Let's hope it's nowt more than an empty, groundless rumour.

Even in the Championship we require more than an imposter using up a valuable salary with their empty comments and promises of goals.

Merely my opinion, not good enough for the empty pot pissers, certainly not good enough for us.

However, would sign Charlie Mulgrew tomorrow.

Thank you.

 

I think McNulty would do well in the Championship but it's a no for me. Saw him in the Tikki bar in Benidorm at the end of May in a big brace like contraption on his knee so right away doubts about his fitness for the up and coming campaign. Added to the fact that he was drinking copious amount of Venom then there's no way we should be looking at somebody happy to pour that shite doon their throat.

On the other hand, having such an influence can work to a new manager's advantage i.e. instead of having to get 20 or so guys on board they only have to get 1 and the rest follow.   It's a common enough thing in the real world where a new manager's 1st task is to know who pulls the strings amongst the workforce and then get onboard with them.

Interesting, another trialist we're not yet familiar with in the lineup. Graham also starting which I like, good to see him in action.

New signing? Number 11 listed as Findlay.

That's Tom Findlay, one of our youth players. It seems they're filling the vacant squad numbers for this friendly.

Cheers. Had got myself intrigued by the number 11 being allocated far more than I should have.

Interesting to see McGowan given the captaincy ahead of Kerr. No McGhee in the squad and a trialist CH begs for the rumour mill to be started.
