Jesus H Blackpool is but 1 point away from setting an all-time low record for points and yet:
Blackpool. Shot. Nearly. Twenty. Times.
This (tragic) dumpster fire of a club is 22nd in total shots for and, thankfully for Fulham, 23rd in shots on target for. Their Shooting %, despite somehow better than Rotherham, is 22nd but not even 24% (i.e. only 1 of their 4 shots on target go in the net.)
As of last month, they barely had 130 DZ shots total in about 40 games. On Saturday they got 5.
And Fulham set out a fairly defensive lineup.
Which may explain whey they had six total shots. Against an opponent that is DEAD LAST in total shots AND shots on target against (Spoiler alert: Fulham also had two shots on target. TWO. But hey, 50% Shooting Percentage!)
Oh and looks like Fulham’s second leading scorer and shot taker was left on the bench, again.
Statistically speaking, this may match may have crossed the rubicon for me. There’s no tenable reason to keep Kit as manager after the Norwich match. The defense is bad, the offense is petering, results are being achieved when they shouldn’t be, and the team selection is confounding.
Any of those in isolation would be acceptable. Two of four? Eeeeep. All Four? Toodle-oo.
