6 shots on goal so far

again the give it time argument comes out totally ignoring the past 6 months

our lack of creativity isn't something that's just suddenly materialized
 
Our lack of opportunities/creativity is a concern.
I agree, the whole league is aware if we don't get it from Maguire or McGeady, then we don't get it, to honest i think we need another winger who's got pace and hopefully we see Embleton produce this season.

Do you also count the lack of pace as well, now McNulty isn't available.

Only one more shot than Bolton so far this season. It’s early days but I’m very concerned that we’re going down the same path. It’ll see us fail again if we are. I was disappointed to see Donald misunderstand the point of the analytics question again on the recent pod. It appears that Safc just aren’t driven by it. That’s a major problem.
What were you hoping to hear? He mentions that we have endless statistics and employees that can use them, but he's not one of them he just gets others to sum them up for him.
 
What chances? We only had about 5/6 shots all game
Are you genuinely trying to turn a great win into a negative?
Sunderland fan in desperate to find any negative shocker
They they have the audacity to claim their negativity doesnt damage the club and players confidence....How on earth anybody can find negatives out of a performance in which we beat one of our big title rivals and never looked in trouble is beyond me but yer fucker some seem desperate to do so.

Never said it wasn't a good win. We certainly didn't create a load of chances as was being claimed though. It was a performance similar to every one of the games we played against Pompey last season and could have gone either way. Both teams created a similar amount and both teams had spells on top.
We do however need to start creating more against the poorer teams as it'll be a similar story to last season if we don't.

Spot on. We have to start creating more. That's been evident for months

We did have clear openings, Power had a great opportunity which was sadly on his wrong foot which he curled wide 2nd half for instance, 09 went down under a challenge that looked like a penna (i was miles away to be fair), another ball 2nd half came across to McGeady in a great position at the back stick but he had to check back.....There were chances and excellent positions created......As it is, we are not Newcastle and this was not a false win.

So two of the 3 chances you remember we created weren't actually chances :lol:

Is not Good enough... will not cut it in the long run.
Look I’m far from happy with how Ross has set teams up so far but FFS 3 points at home to a promotion rival and one point away is not bad going. I’ve stopped my negative comments towards him and I think it’s about time you and a few others do the same. Get behind them.

I want him to say that he may not understand it but knows from how the best clubs are working that it is absolutely vital to our progress. I want him to show that he has what it takes to provide high quality strategic direction to help Safc move up the leagues. I don’t see much evidence so far that him and his Safc are aware of what they really need to do.

He says we're using them and that he personally doesn't understand them but we have people who do. That's good enough for me.

Not for me. Until we rectify the issues we’ve had since he came to the club - a mixture of tactical, recruitment and strategic - I honestly don’t think we’re going up with Donald. We’re at it again tonight. He can get as much ‘investment’ as he wants. Until he, his employees and his regime start to take this stuff seriously it’s only going to be wasted.

I just don't see what the problem is. SD says JR uses them, his staff uses them, our scouting system uses them, and our staff who understand them properly give SD a breakdown of the important bits. Just because SD doesn't spend all day every day personally reading and analysing stacks of player statistics doesn't mean the club are necessarily lacking in that department.

No, our performances, the players we buy and the people we employ mean we are lacking in that department.
