I like that, there's what's looking like a "Goldilocks"  line that we're nicely placed on. Fk knows what's going on with Brighton, must be something to do with having a Brummie manager these days...

Bare in mind that it's based on a small sample size and each team's fixture list will play a part. You would expect to have had more shots on goal and to have had more forward runners if your opening run of fixtures has been entirely against sides that finished in the bottom half of the table last season. Similarly, the inverse of that if you've had a tricky run of games to start the season.

It would be interesting to see the updated graphic at the end of the season to see the relationship with the finished tables. Even then, you'll get sides who are built on a solid defensive foundation who tend to grind points out as well as attacking sides who play a more expansive style.

I agree, I'd love to see that properly graphed (i.e. starting both axis at 0) with a couple of seasons of data. I get why they started the axis where they did to make it easier to read but I think it makes it misleading in just how small the differences really are.

Odds that Jack gets left out of the England squad?

He's in the squad, as expected really.  Even Southgate would have struggled to justify leaving him out of this one.

Might be worth taking a few good books with him, itíll help to pass the time during the matches.

Interestingly, listed as a midfielder, not a forward (at least in the list I saw on the Guardian website). If this is how southgate shared it, that is a significant subtle difference in attitude, perhaps.

He's listed as a forward on the FA site.

Anyone got any tweezers they can lend Super Jack to help him get the splinters out of his arse next week, as Captain Clueless is still in charge?

Oh well; my point is somewhat redundant!

If Jack and Mings go to Denmark with England, they may have to quarantine for 2 weeks.
