Those stats only serve to underline what I've said on here a number of times. As we're well up on shots to goals and accuracy, our poor goalscoring record can only mean we're not getting enough shots in. The forwards (when we had some) didn't shoot enough, always trying to set up a better angle for the shot that ultimately hardly ever happend. A real sign of no confidence and fear of missing in case another chance doesn't come - a self-fulfilling prophecy!
