I'm not sure anyone is taking offence, but I don't need a stat to tell me that we can't hit the back of the net. I appreciate some may find it useful, I personally don't. I suppose if it ever becomes something that affects your position in the league table then I'll start taking notice of it.The whole point of that xG stat is to highlight how poor our finishing has been.
A large part of the reason we've had rubbish results is because we don't put away many of the big chances we manage to create.
We're also conceding soft/fluke goals by the barrelful.
We've got the lowest expected goals conceded in the Championship too.
I'm not sure why some are taking offence at the stats.
They indicate that we create plenty of chances and aren't exposed to too many, but we need to do better with the chances that do occur.
They're not saying that we "deserve" to be 1st in table, or that we've been robbed, it's just a helpful stat to help show where we can improve.
