Anyone who knows the xG shit know why our XG on the end of the match was 1.83 and Luton's was 2.28?

Because xG means the grand total of fuck all.

Luton's first goal was probably counted as 2/3 seperate chances, with the xG total going up for each one

Understat shows it better than most and they have the 3 chances as .71, .64 and .79 (goal). So yeah, the number is very misleading.

Where did it go wrong in the second half - we've let that happen a few times this season and got away with it against Forest, Luton and FUlham, but not Man Utd.

It seems if weíve played well first half and come in with a deserved lead, we maybe donít need to change much whereas the opposition do and when they come back out they are able to dictate their new game plan on us and the players and to a degree Unai arenít reacting to it. It looked to me like Luton played a very aggressive 3-5-2 second half and we struggled to adapt. Then Unai had seen enough shored up the midfield and the left side and that was the shift we needed to go on and win the game. The issue was the Moreno/Rogers left side and Luton absolutely exposed it tbf to Edwards.

I was lucky enough to get a hospitality ticket...some thoughts off the pitch.


Villa away following was immense in the first half, much quiet in the second half.
LTFC fans were excellent throughout.
Nassef Sawiris was in front of us with Monchi and Chris Woakes (!). They celebrated all the goals big style.
Bumped into Sir Brian.

Question - what was the problem with the minutes silence before kick off? Seemed to be lots of shouting?

A fair few dickheads in our fans decided it would be funny to keep shouting and not respect the silence. This then led to the Luton fans calling them naughty names, so it was all extremely pathetic.

pretty much from the re-start it was a different game , that got progressively worse for us until about the 84th minute

The away fans are right next to the home fans in the stand behind the goal.

when the shouting started the cameras are on the Luton players lining up , a couple of them looked distastefully over at their own stand on the side .

I'm pretty sure the shouting was from the away end, and then a loud and not ironic shout of 'respect the silence or fuck off!' came from from the home end.

But why? This has happened too many times for it to be something specific we do or stop doing.
