    I just remember seeing a documentary on Japanese students who used historical data to predict results going back to when the first ball was kicked. They won quite a few quid for 3 years in a row.

    It’s not really a case of believing in it. It’s more that it’s illogical that it doesn’t exist. You can hit the same shot twice and a gust of wind will divert one half an inch onto the post and another into the top corner. A goalkeeper can have a worldie or throw one in. It’s just a factor out of your control that affects your results.

    I made a thread on xG: https://www.not606.com/threads/xg-explained.381300/

    xG is based on the average performance of professional footballers

    If you consistently score fewer goals than your xG suggests that doesn't mean you're unlucky it means your players are ****

    Liverpool are way ahead of their xG which also doesn't mean we're lucky but that we have much better than average players

    Man Utd started it all, banging on about their 1.1 billion fans just to secure better bank loans

    Now you're suddenly whinging that the game is too much about plastics and finance?

    It really wasn’t. It’s often misinterpreted but it was never intended for people like you.

    Maybe he's a gambler - every gambler believes in luck. It's a belief formed from experience.
