They don't seem particularly accurate this year

They are whatever is on the SUFC ticket booker site. It’s a simple code the pulls the stats off, which is unchanged since this app was created - all we really change is a unique identifier number, generated by the official site, to state which match it is. There is a bit more to it but that’s the nub of it. So, if there is any issue with the accuracy of ticket sales (which I doubt there is) it is on the official site.

Attacking coach is a weird one. How hard is it to shoot on target? If you're a professional striker, surely you should know how to shoot?

Why, it's almost as if there's more to attacking than just shooting!

Much like I would expect a defensive coach to work on the team's shape when defending, I would expect an attacking coach to work on the team's shape when attacking.

Apparently Liverpool have a throw in coach and from the article I read a little while ago when you look at the stats for Liverpool’s play from throw ins it is making a positive difference.

Good players consistently practice and look for ways to improve their technique. Beckham would spend hours on his freekicks. Bergkamp would always be working on his first touch. Ronaldo's technique of striking a ball is always changing as he looks for better ways.

That is just looking at shooting. An attacking coach would look at the ways of getting into better shooting positions to score. The majority of striker's goals are from close to goal, so being able to shoot from this position mutliple times per game would give a good chance of scoring.

We've been doing this quite well I believe, our problem has been stopping good goalscoring chances at the other end.
