Preston North End vs. Millwall: Tactical Review

Millwall came and did a job on North End at Deepdale on Wednesday night. The Lions controlled large spells of the game (you can control a game without the ball), but they didn’t sit in a boring, deep block as some have alluded to. They used aggression in the wide areas, they used Ryan Woods really intelligently and they use their CBs […]

5 Things We Learned From The Cardiff Game

We headed into the international break on a good note with a resounding comeback victory against Brentford. We come out out of the break with a familiar post-international break feeling; a home defeat with limited creativity. 4 points from 5 games isn’t a good start to the season.

Scott Sinclair: A Statistical Analysis
