Ask me anything about football stats – The Athletic

Hi John, thanks for doing this and happy with your new role. For my money, your first Atalanta piece artwork in a while makes up one of the greatest football stories ever.

My question about game states – how do you feel about how much the team’s performance skews the different score lines for xG numbers, and thus our perceptions of the team for future success? (For example, Liverpool feel they are more likely to give up the lead than Manchester City)
